The brand new novel from the Sunday Times bestselling author Paige Toon. The perfect summer read for 2020!
When Hannah meets Sonny, she's irresistibly drawn to him: he's sexy and confident, but only in town on holiday. That's fine with Hannah - she doesn't do long-term relationships. And luckily for her, neither does Sonny. But before they can even so much as kiss, Sonny receives some shocking news and commits to making serious life changes - ones that can't and won't include romance.
With even a short fling now off the cards, Hannah and Sonny settle for being friends. But as summer hots up and their chemistry shows no signs of cooling, they start to question their reasons for shutting each other out.
Are they both too broken to find love? And if they tear down the walls between them, will they still like what's on the other side?

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Paige Toon’s Inside Story: “I was partly inspired by Fleabag for this novel, which is about two people who can’t form long lasting relationships but for very, very different reasons. There’s another storyline in The Minute I Saw You which my editor was really unsure about. I really had to convince her, which I’ve never had to do before. It was weighing quite heavy on me, and I felt sick to my gut that she might say it didn’t work. But once she read it, she said, ‘You were so right, you’ve done this perfectly.’ The Minute I Saw You is set in Grantchester, near where I live in Cambridge, during an idyllic English summer—think canoes on the river, pub gardens and cream teas. Every time I revisit places my characters Sonny and Hannah go with their friends, I feel a bubble of happiness in my chest. It makes me feel close to them—and makes them even more real.”
