Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright

Synopsis

You Had Me at Hello by Mhairi McFarlane

What happens when the one that got away comes back? 'Think of the great duos of history. Y'know, like Batman and Robin. We're just like them.' 'Er, Rodney and Del Boy more like.' Rachel and Ben. Ben and Rachel. It was them against the world. Until it all fell apart. It's been a decade since they last spoke, but when Rachel bumps into Ben one rainy day, the years melt away. But life has moved on. Ben is married. Rachel is not. Yet in that split second, Rachel feels the old friendship return. And along with it, the broken heart she's never been able to mend.

Reviews

“Very very witty and funny. Left me in awe…a total gem.” Marian Keyes

“The funniest, most romantic book I've read since One Day.” Lisa Jewell

'I loved this book. It made me laugh and reminded me that anything's possible in love - and in everything else for that matter.' Minnie Driver

“Mhairi is darkly funny and quite, quite rude…You Had Me at Hello is a breath of tart, Northern air.” Sarra Manning

'I loved this: An original, genuinely funny, genuinely moving, modern love story.' Katy Regan

'You Had Me at Hello had me right from the very first line. Bitingly sharp and achingly funny, this is a modern day twist on the classic Persuasion...except this time, Jane Austen is in jeans with a drink in one hand and a take on relationships that's guaranteed to have you bent double. I absolutely loved it!' Claudia Carroll

About the Author

Mhairi McFarlane

Mhairi McFarlane was born in Scotland in 1976 and has been explaining how to pronounce her name ever since. (With a 'V', not an 'M'. Yes, that's us crazy Celts for you). She is based in Nottingham where she used to be a local journalist and now she's a freelance writer and sometime-blogger, which we all know is code for messing about on Twitter. She likes drinking wine, eating food and obtaining clothes; all the impressive hobbies. Her best anecdotes involve dislocating her elbow tripping over a briefcase and a very bad flight to New York. She lives with a man and a cat.
