A warm and witty comedy of modern manners and mistaken identity, from the author of JUST DESSERTS and A FEW LITTLE LIES.
When Liz and Nick arrange to meet someone in Norwich, it’s a crying shame it isn’t each other.
Liz is a recently divorced thirty-something, trying to rebuild her career as a journalist. Nick is single, trying to improve his job prospects, deeply gorgeous but totally poor. They meet, are attracted and...if only life were that simple. For Liz and Nick, things are about to get a lot more complicated.
A heady brew of incompetent exes, good friends, and alcoholic artists manage to disrupt the course of true love. Set against the dubious delights of the art world and the machinations of the national papers, Liz doesn’t know what’s hit her and Nick finds himself embroiled in the consequences of one small economy with the truth which threatens to wreck everything.
Will either of them realise what’s going on and see the answer through the chaos? Will they finally live happily ever after?
Warm, sharp and hilarious, this is a novel for anyone who’s ever fallen in love, taken a chance or had their life turned upside down by a delayed train.
