The new novel from the bestselling author of You Had Me At Hello.
Anna Alessi - history expert, possessor of a lot of hair and an occasionally filthy mouth - seeks nice man for intelligent conversation and Mills & Boon moments.
Despite the oddballs that keep turning up on her dates, Anna couldn't be happier. As a 30-something with a job she loves, life has turned out better than she dared dream.
However, things weren't always this way, and her years spent as the ‘Italian Galleon' of an East London comprehensive are ones she'd rather forget. So when James Fraser - the architect of Anna's final humiliation at school - walks back into her life, her world is turned upside down.
But James seems a changed man. Polite. Mature. Funny, even. People can change, right? So why does Anna feel like she's a fool to trust him?

Funny and very touching
I had never read anything written by Ms. McFarlene before bumping in this one by chance and deciding to give it a try. I must say that this author was a complete revelation! She is very similar to Sophie Kinsella and Jill Mansell as regards the ability to put a very funny twis in the storyline, but this book is also about deeper feelings and very touching confessions.
The heroine is particularly endearing. As an ex-obese turned beautiful woman by sheer will-power and dedication, this books differs from the classical ugly-duckling-becomes-beautiful-swan plots because it does not overlook the deep psycological side-effects of low self-esteem. The hero is a well-rounder character as well, and the interaction H/h fills the book with very funny scenes.
Throw in a cat which is probably plotting the death of the entire humanity but ends up only risking to get himself killed and you'll find yourself grinning throughout the listening. The narrator is very good at playing roles and she has a very clear way of speaking (I'm a non-native).
Book definetely advised! Looking forward other books from the same author
Not instantly likable as 'you had me at hello'
Probably not. So many books, so little time.
Her last book 'you had me at hello'
Enjoyed the book, the main character was a little annoying as well as the narrators cockney accent but enjoyed the book.
