Publisher's Summary

Tess and Gus are meant to be. They just haven't met properly yet. And perhaps they never will....

'Today is the first day of the rest of your life' is the motto on a plate in the kitchen at home, and Tess can't get it out of her head, even though she's in Florence for a final idyllic holiday before university. Her life is about to change forever - but not in the way she expects.

Gus and his parents are also on holiday in Florence. Their lives have already changed suddenly and dramatically. Gus tries to be a dutiful son but longs to escape and discover what sort of person he is going to be.

For one day the paths of an 18-year-old girl and boy crisscross before each returns to England. Over the course of the next 16 years, life and love will offer them very different challenges. Separated by distance and fate, there's no way the two of them are ever going to meet each other properly...or is there?

Very believable story and not all luvvy duvvy although lovely

I really did enjoy this book. Believable characters with believable stories. Maybe I loved it even more as it starts in Italy and the main male character loves Italian cooking, plus there are a few Italian words thrown around. It is just a really nice easy book to listen to even though I am sure it will hit a few chords with some people for some of the storylines. Very believable and thoroughly enjoyable. Looking out for the next one now!

Love story

A beautifully written love story which was tender and touching and also funny at times....would make a great film and will appeal to any die hard romantics and lovers of one day /the versions of us/sliding doors. Maybe ending a bit predictable but definitely a great listen

exceptional

An exceptional read in every way. Believeable, likeable characters with exceptional descriptions. wonderful humour, intelligent observations. Best novel I have read in a very long time and I read at least 2 a week. I look forward to the next from an author who has obviously lived an interesting life.

Absolutely absorbing brilliant debut novel

Where does Miss You rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the top reads for a long time

What was one of the most memorable moments of Miss You?

The interweaving of two lives and the near misses

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely if I'd have had time.

Any additional comments?

Can't wait for her next book.

Captivating

This book had me captivated. I feel like I got to know the two main characters Tess and Gus very well. Both their stories were intriguing and showed how life events change who we are and the paths we take. Both narrators acted the parts well, which added to the story. When the ending came it was bittersweet.
