Right place.
Right time.
Wrong guy …

After breaking up with her childhood sweetheart, clueless dater Rosie has found herself in a boyfriend-drought. So when she finally swipes right on a guy who seems interested, she can’t wait to meet up IRL.

​Until she’s left standing alone. In a bar. Ghosted.

Enter Noah. Confident, funny … and a serial first dater. Offering to give Rosie a crash course in seduction, this could be just what she needs. Until her matchmaker turns out to be the best date she’s ever had – and Rosie wonders if she wants the fake dates to be the real ones after all …

A hilarious, heartwarming romantic comedy about what happens when the wrong guy turns up at the right time.

My Thoughts

There is always an original zany charm in Zara Stoneley’s novels. Rosie is determined to end her boyfriendless state and turns to an online dating app because she’s a modern girl and knows that’s where she’ll meet the man of her dreams. Unfortunately, and not surprisingly, things do not go to plan, and she ends up embarrassingly alone at the bar. Noah never a man to miss an opportunity moves in for the charm offensive, and the two hit it off, as friends when he agrees to give out of practice Rosie, lessons on first dates.

What follows is often amusing, sometimes poignant and gently romantic. Rosie has issues about her father, which dominates her life, and stops her from being the person she could be. The characters are quirky but believable, and the plot has a few surprises.

Zara Stoneley

Zara Stoneley is the USA Today bestselling author of ‘The Wedding Date’.

She lives in a Cheshire village with her family, a lively cockapoo called Harry, and a very bossy (and slightly evil) cat called Saffron.

Born in a small village in the UK, Zara wanted to be a female James Herriot, a spy, or an author when she grew up. After many (many) years and many different jobs, her dream of writing a bestseller came true. She now writes about friendship, dreams, love, and happy ever afters, and hopes that her tales make you laugh a lot, cry a little, and occasionally say ‘ahhh’.

Zara’s bestselling novels include ‘Bridesmaids’, ‘No One Cancels Christmas’, ‘The Wedding Date’, ‘The Holiday Swap’, ‘Summer with the Country Village Vet’, ‘Blackberry Picking at Jasmine Cottage’ and the popular Tippermere series – ‘Stable Mates’, ‘Country Affairs’ and ‘Country Rivals’.
