Publisher's Summary

"[She] writes with a singular wit, charm, and emotional complexity, every word just right, every page brimming with delicious tension." (Emily Henry, number one New York Times best-selling author of People We Meet on Vacation)

International best seller Mhairi McFarlane delivers a sharp, emotional new novel about a woman who calls off her engagement to "the perfect man" and moves in with a charming stranger who makes her question everything about her life, her past, and the secrets she's kept for far too long....

Harriet Hatley is the most in-demand wedding photographer in town, but she doesn’t believe in romance, loathes the idea of marriage, and thinks chocolate fountains are an abomination. Which is why, when her long-time partner proposes, she panics. Suddenly Harriet is single…and living down the hall from her ex. She needs a new apartment, like, yesterday.

Enter Cal Clarke, a hopeless romantic who just experienced his own wedding-related disaster. Harriet and Cal are like chalk and cheese, but as they go from strangers to roommates to friends, it becomes clear they’re both running from something. When Harriet’s most heavily guarded secret comes to light, her world implodes. And Cal, with his witty humor and gentle advice, is a surprising source of calm at the center of the storm.

With her career, friendships, and reputation on the line, Harriet must finally face her past in order to take control of her future. Because if she’s willing to stop playing it safe and risk everything to share her truth, real love and happiness may be waiting on the other side....

Meh

2.5 I have loved some of the authors other books, but this one missed the mark.. Cal was interesting, Lorna had potential, other characters just seem to lack depth. And, “ I’m the penny to your offbrand cola“ that’s one of the worst lines ever.. I also found the narrator pretty insipid even though she technically did a good job but something was missing.

Solid book, pale imitation of “The Flatshare”

Solid book, nothing special—a bunch of tropes strung together with some smooth writing that makes it all go down easily. It feels like it borrowed heavily from “The Flatshare”, by Beth O’Leary which was a distraction for me. There was a lot going on, and it felt like most of the different plot strands were a bit undercooked. There is a bit of a twist on the best gal pals trope. The tension of the main relationship doesn’t make much sense and felt manufactured for no reason when there was plenty of other tensions in the story.

What a bummer.

I’m sure the situations are perfectly relatable and really resonate with some.. but the whole book was just such a bummer. The last 10min were pleasant so I suppose that was supposed to uplift the rest of the book but it just couldn’t redeem how heavy the whole thing was. I don’t generally love to feel so bleak after finishing a book. Especially one with bright happy cover art that indicates it may possibly be a fun happy story.
