What happens when the one that got away comes back? Find out in this sparkling debut from Mhairi McFarlane.
"Think of the great duos of history. We're just like them."
"You mean like Kylie and Jason? Torvill and Dean? Sonny and Cher?"
"I think you’ve missed the point, Rachel."
Rachel and Ben. Ben and Rachel. It was them against the world. Until it all fell apart.
It’s been a decade since they last spoke, but when Rachel bumps into Ben one rainy day, the years melt away. They’d been partners in crime and the best of friends. But life has moved on: Ben is married. Rachel is not. Yet in that split second, Rachel feels the old friendship return. And along with it, the broken heart she’s never been able to mend. Hilarious, heartbreaking and everything in between, you’ll be hooked from their first hello.

"Very very witty and funny. Left me in awe…a total gem." (Marian Keyes)
"The funniest, most romantic book I've read since One Day." (Lisa Jewell)
"I loved this book. It made me laugh and reminded me that anything's possible in love - and in everything else for that matter." (Minnie Driver)
It was actually an entertaining story. There were several times where I was laughing out loud!
Anything by Marian Keyes or Sophie Kinsella. The humor was similar.
In the prologue, it was very difficult to understand her. Her accent was very strong and the candence was also difficult to take. I actually stopped listening to this book for a few weeks because of that. However, I ran out of other audiobooks to listen to so I picked this one back up. Once I got past the prologue, I think I got used to her accent and really enjoyed her reading.
I really enjoyed all of the characters...I guess it would probably be Rachel, since she is the main character.
Not at this time.
Can't understand a word of that guttural voice and I am not reviewing the story, as I cannot listen to this. But I can't send the review without giving the story stars too. So sorry if I am unfair with the story.
The reading is ghastly. Is this scottish? I have nothing against scottish, just don't understand it and I thought I was buying an english book. Should have warned me.
In everything, specially in the accent and the aesthetics of the voice.
irritation and impatience. Makes me want to cancel my Audible subscription.
I find it difficult to download the books onto my iMac, but that may be my own ignorance. The audible manager works only for windows.
I think the world is separating not into left and right, first world and third world, but into Apple freaks on the one hand and Microsoft freaks on the other. Those people really unbelievably totally disrespect and hinder each other!
I hope Audible can help me get the books onto iTunes on my iMac. (By the way, I have nothing against Microsoft, they have many advantages, but I just happen to have an iMac.)
And then onto my iPad and iPhone. Would be grateful for your help.
