Publisher's Summary

‘...perfect setting, perfect dress, perfect flowers, 108 guests - and one, total and utter, rat.’

Abandoned at the altar, Rosalind Shaw descends into the kind of depression which involves her watching too much daytime TV. After several inebriated months, Ros relocates to St Albans and begins a new life, as part-owner of a bookshop. However, just when Ros begins to feel that life might be improving, her rather hairy neighbour, Daniel, knocks on her door with a bunch of flowers and some rather distressing news....

Awful

I read this because it was set in my town. St Albans is wonderfully quaint with loads of history and quirky characters. Zero of that made its way into this book. Main character is silly and too old to be that clueless. Overall, quite disappointing.

Hilarious

So glad I bought this audio book - it genuinely is laugh out loud funny. Had to stop listening to it in bed as I kept waking my husband.

Cute but predictable tale

It was very hard to find the main character likeable throughout the book as she had the habit of going into these little rants for no reason and was super oblivious (to the point of being unbelievable sometimes).

A nice enough book that felt a little flat and didn’t really have anything memorable happen in it.

Quaint

A quaint story that I pretty much binged on listening in one day. Really liked Ros even if at times I wanted to scream get over your self and stop the pity party.....
