Lucy Foley, Sunday Times bestselling author of The Hunting Party and The Guest List.
It's easy to put someone in the friend zone. But what happens if you change your mind?
Bea isn't happy. Desperate for a change, she looks to her friends for inspiration. Every single one of them is paired off, perhaps that's what she needs too.
So, she starts dating again. But everywhere she goes - amid the hilarious and scarring dates - there's Peter. Good old, oddball Peter, her closest friend from university. He's always been firmly in the friend zone but something's happened lately - he seems taller, more handsome and suddenly making him smile is Bea's favourite thing.
But how can Bea possibly risk their friendship? And how do you even go about taking someone out of the friend zone? What if Bea and Peter were only ever meant to be just friends...

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Alone on New Year’s Eve at her best friend’s wedding, Bea resolves to find the happiness she thinks all her loved-up friends have. Her resolution takes her on a series of hilarious and cringeworthy dates—one especially unforgettable occasion includes a cooking disaster, too much chilli and a necessary can of coconut milk that had us weeping with laugher. Beyond attempting to find love, Bea also tries to grow her hobby of creating bespoke greeting cards into a small business. She’s assisted by her friend Peter, and as the two begin to spend more time together, Bea starts to question whether her feelings for him are simply platonic. The awkward moments, miscommunication and witty prose ensures this rom-com is embarrassingly relatable and consistently laugh-out-loud funny.
