**Listed Today**: Fun and friendly professional just arrived from London seeks room in central location, double bed preferred, ex-boyfriend optional extra.
Armed with a super-sized backpack full of optimism, Jess sets off in search of sun, sea and a much-needed new beginning.
Things don’t get off to a good start.
Instead of sunshine, she’s met with torrential rain. Her job prospects are as dismal as the weather and that friend-of-a-friend she was meant to stay with has fallen through. Just as Jess is homeless, jobless and wishing she’d gone for the waterproof mascara, she runs into the last person she expected to see. Sam. The ex she never got over. Jess always believed that one day fate would bring them back together. Now he’s here, more gorgeous than ever.
Before she knows it, Jess is accepting Sam’s offer to stay in his spare room. But while she may have been less than truthful about the mess she’s in, there is also one rather important thing Sam has neglected to mention.
Suddenly Jess isn’t just living with her ex, but with his new girlfriend too. All of that baggage she thought she left behind may have caught up with her…
A touching, funny and uplifting look at how finding and losing love can lead you to discover yourself along the way. Fans of Mhairi McFarlane, Sophie Kinsella and classic rom coms like My Best Friend’s Wedding will love Elizabeth Neep’s wit and warmth.

Not Too Shabby
I’m giving this book 4 stars because for a few reasons.
1. I feel like it has a slow start that never really picks up until the end.
2. The ending is not what I expected, which isn’t necessarily bad, except it was like a surprise twist to hurry up and finish the story??
The writing was good, the author being verbose and good at including details.
The storyline was good and the timeline switch to give the reader a glimpse of the past was an interesting touch to the novel.
Overall, worth the read!
The Spare Bedroom
First time reading this author. This is a story about relationships. Friends and lovers. I felt so sorry for Jess through most of the book. Many readers might see their own lives reflected in her story and hopefully come to the same conclusion she ultimately was forced to. It’s a clean but very well told story. I would definitely read this author again.
