“Delightful…As soul-warming as curling up with a cup of tea” Entertainment Weekly
“Very, very funny… a balm on my troubled soul” Marie Claire
Everyone wants that special someone….
Annie Higgins has one goal this year: to get her tiny business off the ground. But – infuriated by the advertising agency across the hall making fun of her job – Annie is goaded into accepting their crazy challenge: to make a random stranger Instagram-famous in just thirty days.
And even when they choose Dr Samuel Page PhD, historian and hater of social media, as her target, Annie’s determined to win the bet – whether Sam likes it or not.
But getting to know Sam means getting to know more about herself. And before the thirty days are out, Annie has to make a decision about what’s really important…
Funny, real and heart-meltingly romantic, Annie and Sam’s story is My Fair Lady for the social media age – and the perfect feel-good read.
‘Delightful…As soul-warming as curling up with a cup of tea. It’s My Fair Lady for our times… Kelk’s voice shines through in what is, ultimately, a lighthearted, warm romance about the unlikely connections we forge because of, or really in spite of, the digital age.’ Entertainment Weekly
“Her fiction is dry, warm, stuffed with fully-realized female characters, and very, very funny…[One In A Million] is classic Kelk, by which I mean a balm on my troubled soul, because two years in Trump’s America will make you yearn for that.” Marie Claire

I tried to stick with this, but the dialogue was dumb and the story was boring. I felt like I didn’t care about the characters or what they were doing.
