The Greatest Love Story of All Time


'The new Marian Keyes . . . romantic and laugh-out-loud hilarious' Cosmopolitan

Fran's turning 30 and life is good.

She's somehow bagged herself a Very Posh Job and her outlandishly handsome and talented boyfriend Michael is taking her to the Ritz, with something that looks suspiciously like a ring box in his pocket.

But by the end of the evening Fran is sobbing in bed with a bottle of cheap brandy and one of Michael's old socks.

EVERYTHING has gone wrong and she doesn't know what to do.

But then her friends come up with a plan, and so begins the greatest love story of all time . . .

Fans of Sophie Kinsella, Rosie Walsh and Mhairi McFarlane will love this heartwarming, romantic and funny novel filled with twists and turns.
