A laugh-out-loud, feel-good romantic comedy perfect for fans of Jane Costello and Mandy Baggot!
Will you…date me?
Delilah James, singleton and smoothie-addict, has six months to find a date for her oldest friend’s wedding. Oh, and to prove to her ex, best man Ben, that she has totally moved on since he dumped her out-of-the-blue nine months, eight days and seventeen hours ago…
So, with her two BFFs playing Cupid, Delilah launches herself into the high-tech, fast-paced and frankly terrifying world of dating. Luckily there’s the hot new guy at work, Adam Sinclair, to practice her flirting on – even if, as a colleague, he’s strictly off-limits!
Yet time’s running out and date after disastrous date forces Delilah to tell a little white lie – and invent a fake boyfriend! But will her secret crush on Adam ruin everything? Does she even care about Ben anymore? And is it too late to untangle her web of lies and take a real date to the wedding…?

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The sort of breezy and utterly charming book that deserves to come on holiday with you. We fell very quickly for our heroine, Delilah, a dating novice suddenly hurled into the no-holds-barred universe of dating apps in a bid to find a date for her oldest friend’s nuptials. But why the desperation? Well, her ex, Ben, is the best man. Delilah’s quest takes in the sort of hilarious nightmare first dates we can all relate to and an prospective office romance that might just provide her dream solution.

Funny, uplifting and northern!
Really enjoyed reading this book; was a nice change as I usually read psychological thrillers. The book was funny especially with it being set in the north. Will definitely be reading more of Jennifer’s books:)
This book started off semi-interesting. It has a cutesy writing style, which sometimes can be a bit repetitive. However, there is no real interesting climax, and the book then finishes quite abruptly with a ‘tie up of ALL the loose endings’ for side characters who have very little development in their story, so their endings seem overtly cheesy and too simple. Overall the book starts off okay but towards the middle to end it is not so good.
Hard to get into
Tried to read but just couldn’t get into it.
