9780007277384: The One Before The One

A contemporary love story told with Katy's inimitable laugh-out-loud humour, poignancy and heart.

TO DO LIST
Make something with Quinoa
Pluck eyebrows
Do something 'cultural' every week
Dump married boyfriend

Caroline's life was meant to be sorted when she made the decision to end her engagement, 3 months before the big day. With her to-do list tasks getting crossed off and her career going great guns, Caroline is sure she's now a fully functioning adult. So when her 17 year old half-sister Lexi, arrives unexpectedly at her door, it doesn't quite fit with her image that she's drunk and wearing her wedding dress!

Lexi has come to stay for the summer but their relationship is strained, as Lexi is the result of their father's infidelity. An affair that led to the divorce that destroyed Caroline's mother and ruined her own childhood. Needless to say, Caroline is in no hurry to confess her relationship with her married lover Toby.

As the summer wears on, Caroline has decisions to make, and a life to reconsider, but surely a 17 year old can't teach her anything about how to live well?

• ‘Pick up Katy Regan’s excellent debut … an ultimate page-turner’ In Style

• ‘A fab read’ Company

• 'Katy's brilliant at unravelling the bewildering, emotionally complicated reality of the situation, with laugh-out-loud humour and the kind of bitter-sweet sadness that made me wish I wearing tear proof mascara, and hope for the happiest of endings for Tess.

•‘Funny and thought-provoking, a great read’ Julia Llewellyn

About the Author:

Katy Regan worked at 19 magazine for two years before joining Marie Claire in 2002.

Seeing the creative possibilities in this unconventional situation, her editor commissioned her to write a column - And then there were three… which proved so successful it ran for two years and inspired many a reader to write in to Katy with their life story. She has now taken her loyal following to her blog:The State She's In on the Marie Claire website. Her first novel One Thing Led to Another is out now. She lives in Little Berkhamsted and shares care of her son Fergus with his dad.
