'Refreshing and fun' Debbie Johnson 'Thoroughly entertaining' Love Reading 'You will end up wondering if robotic boyfriends might be better than trawling through Tinder' Heat 'Romantic, intriguing and absolutely hilarious' The Courier 'A fresh take on a common romance plot and we love it' Yahoo's Top Books for March Dating is hard. Being dateless at your perfect sister's wedding is harder. Meet Kelly. A brilliant but socially awkward robotics engineer desperately seeking a wedding date... Meet Ethan. Intelligent, gorgeous, brings out the confidence Kelly didn't know she had and ... not technically human. (But no one needs to know that.) With her sister's wedding looming and everyone in the world on her case about being perpetually single, Kelly decides to take her love life into her own hands - and use her genius skills to create Ethan. But when she can't resist keeping her new boy toy around even after the 'I do's', Kelly knows she needs to hit the off switch on this romance, fast. Only, when you've found (well, made) your perfect man, how do you kiss him goodbye? Readers love this book!

Before Hello Kitty rocketed to fame in the United States and around the world, she was a shoo-in for stardom in a country famous for its feline love affair: Japan. From cat cafes to cat islands , all of Japan's furry friends take the spotlight in Catland. Picturesque city streets, shop windows, temples and more are the stage for cats across the country. But Sarah Archer will also take readers behind the scenes of this phenomenon. With charming storytelling, Catland explores both the past and present of Japan's affinity for cats. Archer transports readers to modern workshops where the Japanese carefully craft traditionally woven cat beds, beckoning cat statues and cat clothing. With adorable illustrations and photographs, this book is just as irresistibly cute as its subjects-the perfect gift for the cat lover in your life.

With more than 100 colorful illustrations and iconic designs, Sarah Archer celebrates the turning point of Christmas in America, when new technologies and unprecedented prosperity made anything seem possible. Midcentury Christmas is sure to be on everyone's wish lists.
