Delia Moss isn't quite sure where she went wrong. Everything was going smoothly. Ok, she had a slightly rubbish job working for the council and she hadn t seen her best friend Emma in god knows how long, but she'd been working up to proposing to Paul for months. This. Was. It.
But with one annoying little beep beep, Delia's life is turned upside down and rather than stick around and commit GBH by punching her cheating scumbag boyfriend (who still wants to be with her) in the chops, she decides the best thing to do would be get some head space and leave for London.
But a new city is never going to be the answer, and with a dodgy new job in media PR, where a suspicious yet devastatingly handsome journalist seems to be sniffing around and endangering her job, Delia can't run forever. Where did the old Delia go? And can she get her back?

I have to admit that I have been a fan of Mhairi's since I read her first book, so I jumped at the chance to read her latest. Happily I was not disappointed as this book was so enjoyable that I practically gobbled it up. I pretty much did since I read it in a day and at 544 pages, this was no mean feat!
One thing that has always drawn me to her writing is the fact that her characters are so realistic and down to earth. I feel like a lot of the things they go through are things that I could also have gone through and in some cases, we actually shared experiences. For me, the sign of a great book is being able to identify with the characters in that way.
I loved just how easy this book was to read. It almost felt like a conversation with a friend. One of those "we are catching up and haven't seen each other for awhile" type conversations but also one of those very good and heartfelt conversations.
My heart just ached for Delia at times. What she was going through was definitely not easy but unfortunately seems to be something a lot of us have experienced, in one way or another. I really loved how the story progressed with the ultimate outcome being utterly satisfying in every way.
If you are looking for a great summer read, or really anytime read, I cannot recommend this story enough or even this author enough. One of my favorites by far, this book has already got me longing for her next!
