Publisher's Summary

What if Mr Right was right in front of you all along?

The laugh out loud new romantic comedy from the Sunday Times best-selling author.

When Ros comes home after three years away, she’s ready to pick up with life exactly where she left it. But her friends have moved on, her parents have rekindled their romance and her bedroom is now a garden shed. All of a sudden, she’s swept up in nostalgia for the way things were. Then her phone begins to ping, with messages from her old life. Including one number she thought she’d erased for good – the man who broke her heart. 

Is this her second chance at one big love? Sometimes we all want to see what we’ve been missing....

©2020 Lindsey Kelk (P)2020 HarperCollins Publishers Limited

Funny and didnt want it to end

Felt like a good romcom. Wished there was more where it ended. The side characters where just as entertaining as the main ones.

Modern day version of Bridget Jones

I loved this story! So clever and dynamic, yet so true to real life.
It is a great listen, as well. The narration was fabulous!
Loved every minute of it.

Good rebound book

This is one of those books you read to get over reading a truly terrible book. It’s wholly predictable, but a cute story with no stress. The characters are fun, although Roz seems to be a thinly-veiled attempt to recapture Bridget Jones. One character whose name is pronounced like “Sue Me” is - no kidding - a lawyer, so expect some silliness. There’s also a scene in which a couple breaks into a private garden that seems nearly lifted from Notting Hill. So, don’t expect a lot of originality, and you’ll have a pleasant read of this one.

Not as good as I hoped

It was an ok story...dragged a bit. Found myself daydreaming at parts. The narrator did an ok job...sounded bored herself from time to time.

a cute, fun listen.

I like the silly situations that Lindsay Kelk tends to get her characters into. She's one of the first authors I usually Google when I'm looking for a new book. I actually really enjoyed the main character's, Ros' friends. I think I would be fun to do a spin-off of them. They are the group of friends that you always wish that you had- consistent, fun, supportive, always showing up exactly when needed.
the story itself was okay, nothing super exciting or page turning. Of course you root for the main character, and thankfully Lindsay's main characters are never totally stupid like other chic lit characters tend to be where you're frustrated by their actions.
I thought her having feelings for another man but still sleeping with another was a bit bothersome. I just don't understand how some people can be so promiscuous, but that's just me and my high moral ground. I think it's worth a listen if you're just cleaning out your closet, like I was, and want something to entertain you.

Fun story from an author I have been binging

I have listened to “one in a million” and “on a night like this” prior to “in case you missed it”. I preferred those two to this one, but I still liked it and will keep my binge going. I like how the love interests in all of these novels have been interesting and sort of straight forward. I was listening to another author before this and she would write the characters to be so perfect for each other but make it take forever for them to admit it… and for some reason I didn’t like it. I like the themes of friendship and self evaluation.

Enjoyable Women's Fiction

I won a copy of In Case You Missed It by Lindsey Kelk and am glad that I did. I don’t know if I would have purchased the audiobook otherwise (which was very well done). I enjoyed this women’s fiction novel. It does contain some mature content and a fair amount of language, but overall it is well written and an enjoyable story. I could relate to Ros and her struggles and enjoyed watching her learn and grow as she returned to her childhood home and confronted ghosts from her past.

Very Slow Start. Last 5 hours were worthwhile.

The story was so very slow to get rolling that I wasn't sure I could get through it.
Once the story ACTUALLY got going, it was good.

Meh

Average chic lit
Sub plot with parents made the book more interesting
No laugh out loud moments but witty at times

Cute, easy listen

This was my first book by Lindsey Kelk and I’ll definitely be listening to more. The narration was great and I enjoyed the different characters. I laughed at many parts & I felt some angst over Ros’s decisions at parts. I think that’s what makes a good RomCom, right?

really predictable

The overall story was a good one. But SO predictable. There is absolutely nothing that will have you second guess exactly where this story goes. A handful of chuckle-out-loud moments, and the characters are likable enough. But ... it was just okay. If you need a story of finding oneself and you don’t want twists and turns ... this is your book.
