A family wedding. A fake boyfriend. A recipe for disaster! A funny, feel-good romantic comedy from bestseller Jo Platt
Singleton Dot Riley’s grandmother, Nanny Flo, is on her deathbed, surrounded by family and distraught at the thought of Dot being all alone in the world. Desperate to make Flo’s final moments happy ones, Dot invents a boyfriend – plumping in panic for her childhood friend, Felix, a firm favourite of Flo, but whom Dot hasn’t actually seen for 15 years.
But when Flo makes an unexpected recovery a few weeks before a family wedding, Dot is faced with a dilemma. Should she tell her frail grandmother that she lied and risk causing heartache and a relapse? Or should she find Felix and take him to the wedding?
Dot opts for finding Felix. But it’s not long before she discovers that finding him is the easy bit: liking him is the real challenge.
An uplifting romantic comedy about finding something you didn't even know you were looking for. Finding Felix is perfect for fans of Anna Bell, Tracy Bloom and Debbie Viggiano.

My Expectations Were Low But...
I was pleasantly surprised. The friends to lovers trope was well done. I didn’t expect the story or Dot and Felix’s relationship to take shape in the ways they did. Platt does a great job rounding out the story and bringing everything full circle. Although I felt some parts were unnecessarily drawn out and some of Dot’s actions were rather immature for a 36-year-old, overall, I’m glad I took a chance on this one. You’ll be rooting for Dot and Felix the entire time.
Oh my goodness, what a good book ! First time reading this author and I will definitely be looking for more. Loved the characters, ALL of them. Did not want their story to end when it did, but GOOD things always do, sadly.
Thanks so much Ms. Platt !
