From the Sunday Times bestseller comes a warm, tender and utterly hilarious story about love and betrayal
‘The feeling you get when you read a Milly Johnson book should be bottled and made available on the NHS’ Debbie Johnson
Love can sting. Or make you fly ... Romance writer and single mum Stevie Honeywell has only weeks to go to her wedding when her fiancé Matthew runs off with her glamorous new friend Jo MacLean. It feels like history repeating itself for Stevie, but this time she is determined to win back her man. She isn't going to act as he might expect. She isn't going to wail and dig her heels in, she is simply going to pretend to let him go whilst she pursues a mad course of dieting, exercising and self-improvement.
And it feels like history is repeating itself for Adam MacLean too, who is also determined to win his lady, Jo, back with the same basic psychological tactics. Then he is going to initiate his master plan: Getting together with Stevie to drive Jo wild with jealousy.
So, like the Scottish country jig 'The Birds and the Bees', the couples all change partners and learn some revealing truths about each other along the way. But what happens when Adam's master plan actually starts to work? And just who will Stevie be dancing with when the music stops?

Loved this book, not the type of book I would normally read at all, though it got be hooked on the first few pages , I have hardly managed to put it down ! Great read, some good little twists in the book too! The ending was perfect!
Enjoyed it, great writing, it was a bit slow at some points but I liked that it was told from several peoples perspectives with getting us confused
She’s a fantastic writer
Wonderful book and very hilarious, I must add. Milly has a peculiarly spectacular and detailed way of spinning a tale that makes her books very enjoyable and impossible to put down. Imma get another of her books. Love this one to bits! I actually stopped midway to rate this book.
