Publisher's Summary

Listed today: Fun and friendly professional just arrived from London seeks room in central location, double bed preferred, ex-boyfriend optional extra.

Armed with a super-sized backpack full of optimism, Jess sets off in search of sun, sea and a much-needed new beginning.

Things don’t get off to a good start.

Instead of sunshine, she’s met with torrential rain. Her job prospects are as dismal as the weather and that friend-of-a-friend she was meant to stay with has fallen through. Just as Jess is homeless, jobless and wishing she’d gone for the waterproof mascara, she runs into the last person she expected to see. Sam. The ex she never got over. Jess always believed that one day fate would bring them back together. Now he’s here, more gorgeous than ever.

Before she knows it, Jess is accepting Sam’s offer to stay in his spare room. But while she may have been less than truthful about the mess she’s in, there is also one rather important thing Sam has neglected to mention.

Suddenly Jess isn’t just living with her ex, but with his new girlfriend too. All of that baggage she thought she left behind may have caught up with her....

A touching, funny, and uplifting look at how finding and losing love can lead you to discover yourself along the way. Fans of Mhairi McFarlane, Sophie Kinsella and classic rom coms like My Best Friend’s Wedding will love Elizabeth Neep’s wit and warmth.

Could not support angsty and dishonest protagonist

I really want to like this book. The description sound an interesting but I will definitely be returning it. I owe her first pursue rushing home babe he redemption but it was very unsatisfying. It was just a difficult to rally around a person who lied about everything, was manipulative, and so self-absorbed. Her internal monologue is constant whiney questions or scheming. Everyone around here is very decent but I found her tiresome, and honestly, just kind of stupid.

Muy bonito

Escucha relajada, entretenida pese a que hubo una influencia leve religiosa que siempre me empalaga o hace que deje de escuchar, pero la escritora narra de manera entretenida q me permitió obviar ese detalle. Buscaré libros de ella para un sábado de relax
