9780143051237: Summer in the City

An irresistibly romantic, laugh-out-loud funny, and achingly true novel from bestselling chick-lit author Robyn Sisman

Can you fall in love with someone you’ve never met?

Suze Wilding and Lloyd Rockwell are perfect strangers. She lives in London; he lives in New York. They know nothing about each other—until one summer they exchange jobs and homes.

Suze is impetuous, impatient, and NEVER wants to get married. Lloyd is complicated, cautious, and contemplating marriage to the eminently suitable Betsy. But when Suze discovers a plot at work to get rid of Lloyd, the two begin communicating long-distance—and they wonder what might happen if they ever met face to face...
