When Ros steps off a plane after four years away she’s in need of a job, a flat and a phone that actually works. And, possibly, her old life back. Because everyone at home has moved on, her parents have reignited their sex life, she’s sleeping in a converted shed and she’s got a bad case of nostalgia for the way things were.
Then her new phone begins to ping with messages from people she thought were deleted for good. Including one number she knows off by heart: her ex’s.
Sometimes we’d all like the chance to see what we’ve been missing…

Thank you to Harper Collins for my copy of this book via netgalley. I have been a fan of Lindsey’s writing for many many years so it’s always exciting when it’s time for a new Lindsey book.

This book has a very nostalgic feel. Ros spent too much time being blinded by the past. When we look back on the past we often do so with rose-tinted glasses. Especially if we aren’t where we expected to be. Ros has returned to the UK and is living in a shed in her parent’s garden. It’s really not where she expected to be at 32 years old. Life never turns out as planned so this is a theme that most people can understand. Ros was easy to relate to. She’s fun and realistic. She makes mistakes and sometimes makes a right prat of herself.

I loathed Patrick. I am a firm believer that ex’s are ex for a reason. I am not one to return to a previous relationship. I’m pretty cutthroat about that. Ros’ friend Sumi is a bit like that. I really related to Sumi in that respect.

This book had all the typical elements I have come to love and expect from Lindsey. I love her humour. It helps us all to feel better about our ‘idiot’ moments.

This book has the beginnings of a great series. I would love to come back to this group of friends and see how they are all getting on. I can really see this being like the I Heart Series.

About Lindsey Kelk

Um, hi! My name is Lindsey, I’m a writer, I live in New York and I’m an interwebs addict. Phew, now I’ve got that off my chest, there’s really not much else to say. I’m from England, specifically ‘up north’, lived in London for seven years then skidaddled to New York. I’ve been here since 2009 and I really don’t particularly want to leave. It’s ever so nice.

I write books, I write articles for magazines, I blog about beauty things, sometimes I put myself in very silly situations and write about that and on the odd occasion, I interview people. I’m much better at talking about myself though. I have been described as an ‘oversharer’. And ‘gobby’. I believe this is endearing.

I love music, movies and TV. I watch WWE. A lot. It’s possible I’m actually a 14-year-old boy who is confused about his sexuality. I’m naturally blonde. The prescription for my right eye is -9.5. I’m never in one place for too long and next year I want to travel lots more. I like cooking, eating and entertaining. And fashion. And yoga. And talking all of the time. I love texting. And karaoke. And Twitter. And football. And obviously, I’m a fan of reading, writing and all things book-related. I hate mosquitoes, small-minded people and pickles. But not pickled onions. I like pickled onions. Hard to get in the states, you know.
