Have you ever imagined running away from your life?
Well Birdy Finch didn't just imagine it. She did it. Which might've been an error. And the life she's run into? Her best friend, Heather's.
The only problem is, she hasn't told Heather. Actually there are a few other problems...
Can Birdy carry off a summer at a luxury Scottish hotel pretending to be her best friend (who incidentally is a world-class wine expert)?
And can she stop herself from falling for the first man she's ever actually liked (but who thinks she's someone else)?
If you're looking to replace that Fleabag or Bridesmaids sized hole in your life, look no further: Birdy Finch is here. A snort-out-loud romcom with a heart of gold, The Summer Job is THE debut to lose yourself in this year.

Engaging, heartwarming and SO MUCH FUN. I bloody loved it
Fresh, funny and filled with delicious food and wine. It made me long for a summer in Scotland with Birdy and all the team at Loch Dorn
What a welcome escape; it's witty and funny and it packs an emotional punch too. Loved it, I'm in the queue for more Lizzy
Fresh, funny and oh so relatable - the perfect tonic
Fun with a capital F . . . If you've ever felt you're getting left behind in life, or don't have everything worked out quite yet, this is the book for you
I fell for Birdy on the very first page and inhaled the rest of her story . . . A brilliantly original plot paired with fabulously funny writing - a pure joy to read!
It's really great - so gossipy, warm and funny
One of the funniest and sexiest books of the year. As soon as I finished it, I wanted to read it again. Do not miss this one!
Have you ever imagined running away from your life? In this extract from fresh new romcom The Summer Job, out 15 April, Birdy Finch turns up for her first day as sommelier under Michelin-star chef Russell Brooks. Problem is, she's not the actual sommelier – her best friend Heather is.
