Shortlisted for the Romantic Novel of the Year Award 2007. This will appeal to both women and men as a good â€œlaugh out loudâ€ read. Although the cover might put some men off as looking like â€œa girls bookâ€, which was the way a friendâ€™s husband described it, once he had run out of books to read on holiday and had picked this up, reluctantly, he couldnâ€™t wait to get home to buy Mattâ€™s previous book, Best Man. Sometimes men have to be reminded they enjoy the romance just as much the girls!
