Following a year in the life of a twenty-something American woman who falls hard for her London flat mate, this clever, fun, and unforgettable romantic comedy is the perfect feel-good holiday read.
Two people. One house. A year that changes everything.
Twenty-nine-year-old Jess is following her dream and moving to London. It’s December, and she’s taking a room in a crumbling, but grand, Notting Hill house-share with four virtual strangers. On her first night, Jess meets Alex, the guy sharing her floor, at a Christmas dinner hosted by her landlord. They don’t kiss, but as far as Jess is concerned the connection is clear. She starts planning how they will knock down the wall between them to spend more time together.
But when Jess returns from a two-week Christmas holiday, she finds Chris has started dating someone else—beautiful Emma, who lives on the floor above them. Now Jess faces a year of bumping into (hell, sharing a bathroom with) the man of her dreams…and the woman of his.
This is the story of Jess and Alex and is set in London.
Jess’ friend Becky invites her to live in her house as a flatmate. Also living there is Alex, a student nurse, after a change of career and recovering from a recent relationship breakup.
Jess is quite smitten by him as soon as she sees him, but keeps her feelings to herself….and so does Alex!
The story covers a year in their lives as they get to know each other, they grow closer but still keep their true feelings to themselves………
I love the narration, both readers, Jessica Preddy and Finlay Robertson really fit the characters and bring them to life.
It’s a warm snuggle of a tale and the absolutely perfect antidote to the problems of the real world. A beautifully written, kind and gentle romance with great narrators. I love it.
