Publisher's Summary

A laugh-out-loud novel about a woman determined to track down her exes in hopes of repairing her failing love life—from the New York Times bestselling author of 500 Miles from You.

“I loved this book!”—Sophie Kinsella

We all look up our exes online…but should we? 

Posy Fairweather is over the moon when her boyfriend Matt proposes in what is probably the most romantic way possible—on top of a mountain, in a thunderstorm, like something from a Nicholas Sparks novel. But a few days later he dumps her. Crushed and humiliated, Posy wonders why all her romances have always been such train wrecks. 

Determined to gain some insight, Posy resolves to get online, track down her exes, and ask them. Which doors from Posy’s past should stay closed? Which might open? Can she learn from past mistakes? And what if she has let Mr. Right slip through her fingers along the way?

Colgan is a bit off

I usually love Jenny Colgan, but this one was tough to connect with. The characters are quite hard to like. Posey spends the majority of the story letting others determine most of her decisions. Perhaps what rubs me the wrong way is her totally selfish perspective? Fleur is right - she is self-absorbed and unmoved by the emotions of those around her.

The narrator might be part of the problem. Some of her voices are extremely annoying!

Not my favorite

The narration for the main character was ok, but the sister and BFF omg. Why would they choose to make the sister sound like a 5 year old? She’s a grown up, right? I’m still not sure. I read any book Jenny writes but this one wasn’t worth an audible credit. The characters are barely likable.
