Synopsis

Here's Looking at You by Mhairi McFarlane

The new novel from the bestselling author of You Had Me At Hello. Anna Alessi - history expert, possessor of a lot of hair and an occasionally filthy mouth - seeks nice man for intelligent conversation and Mills & Boon moments. Despite the oddballs that keep turning up on her dates, Anna couldn't be happier. As a 30-something with a job she loves, life has turned out better than she dared dream. However, things weren't always this way, and her years spent as the 'Italian Galleon' of an East London comprehensive are ones she'd rather forget. So when James Fraser - the architect of Anna's final humiliation at school - walks back into her life, her world is turned upside down. But James seems a changed man. Polite. Mature. Funny, even. People can change, right? So why does Anna feel like she's a fool to trust him? Hilarious and poignant, Here's Looking At You will have you laughing one minute and crying the next. The new must-read novel from #1 bestseller Mhairi McFarlane.

Reviews

Praise for 'You Had Me at Hello': 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) I loved this: an original, genuinely funny, genuinely moving, modern love story. (Katy Regan) Mhairi is darkly funny and quite, quite rude...You Had Me at Hello is a breath of tart, Northern air. (Sarra Manning) Bitingly sharp and achingly funny...guaranteed to have you bent double. I absolutely loved it! (Claudia Carroll)


About the Author

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. Her first book, You Had Me At Hello, was an instant success. She has now written four books. She lives with a man and a cat.
