This is a delightful romcom to escape into and I thoroughly enjoyed doing just that!
Journalist Rosie Jones never expected to be a participant in a televised quiz show but, even more, never expected to be humiliatingly dumped when she used one of her lifelines to ask her boyfriend for the answer to a question! The consequence to her winning £50,000 is a lot of unwanted social media attention, her resigning from her job and finding an intriguing bouquet with a message that starts her reconnecting with her ex-boyfriends to see if she can ascertain just who sent them. She returns to her childhood home to stay with her parents and the fun continues as she discovers what has happened to them all and meets them all again. Get ready for some surprising revelations, a transatlantic cruise and possibly finding romance in this fun read.
The story has some great characters, plenty of twists, a fabulous friendship and has lots of laugh out loud moments. It is an easy, engaging read, another winner by this talented author, IMHO.
I requested and was gifted a copy of this book via NetGalley and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.
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?
