Publisher's Summary

What if your future was somewhere in your past?

Rosie Jones has been dumped by every boyfriend she’s ever had - most recently by Dinosaur Dave, live on TV, during the ‘phone-a-friend’ segment of a quiz show. 

After the footage goes viral Rosie receives a bunch of flowers with a message: 

I love you, I should have never let you go, I want you back x

But who sent them? 

At a loose end and with £50,000 prize money in her back pocket, Rosie decides to take a trip down memory lane, visiting each of her ex-boyfriends to see not just if they are the one who sent the flowers but if they are the one. 

Her journey takes her back to the house she grew up in and on a transatlantic cruise to New York, but can Rosie figure out which ex-boyfriend is the love of her life, or should the past stay in the past?

Pretty cute

This book makes keeling for a best friend, especially one I could travel with and who would indulge my whims and soothe my embarrassments. Of course, having the £50K would be super too! Haha! The main character’s cynicism and criticism of others gets a little much, I have to admit.

Not my fave

I’ve read a few Portia MacIntosh books and always love the hilarious and light hearted fun. This one felt laborious to get through, though. The balance was off- too many gaffs and trials, and not enough setup on the rekindled romance. It felt like a rushed tie up at the end as a result? Still a fan of the author, but I’d opt for any of her other titles first. Karen Cass still did a fabulous job with the narration, though!

funny and likeable characters

I like when stories are a little bit unexpected. This one fits the bill. It was cute and sweet and you could pick it up whenever and catch on again. Definitely not a page turner or one you can't put down, but a nice beach read, if you will.

I enjoyed this book a lot. The characters were really interesting and some very funny. The story was not the usual. It was funny, heart warming and cute.

Not my fav at all- READ the others. Cass is Still amazing.

I have listen to Portias books because I love the narrator. Karen is the best!

However, i did not like the main character. Very very bratty. Like get over yourself bratty. Like she has NOTHING to offer anyone around her.

If i hadn’t read/listed to the last 4 audiobooks. I’d wouldn’t know how amazing Portias stories are. I would not let this be an intro to Ms.Macintosh much much much better stories.

Disappointing

Have read & enjoyed several of Portias books but this one was disappointing .
The story and h were so ridiculous, invoking exasperation & eye rolling instead of charm & chuckles.
Narration by Karen was excellent as always.
