The Back Up Man Synopsis

THE HILARIOUS AND HEARTWARMING NEW ROMCOM PERFECT FOR FANS OF THE FLATSHARE * Marriage pact * Slow burn * Forced proximity * Friends to lovers 'I could not put it down - I just HAD to know what happened' 5***** Reader Review 'Uplifting and compelling. I couldn't put it down and I couldn't stop smiling - I loved it' 5***** Reader Review *Shortlisted author for the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize* They made a deal to marry at thirty. But Euan's nowhere to be found . . . Can Anya track down her back up man? __________ Twenty-nine, single, jobless and in a nightmare house share, things could be going better for Anya Mackie. Then she stumbles across a pact she wrote with her school crush, Euan Carrick - to marry at thirty if they're still single . . . But Euan hasn't been seen for a decade. Reluctantly enlisting the help of Euan's emotionally unavailable best friend Jamie Kildare, Anya sets off across the country to find her Back Up Man. But will Euan remember her? And should Anya really be betting her future on her past? __________ The Back Up Man is a hilariously romantic tale of mishaps and matrimony, love and long shots, foibles and friendship, that may make you text that old school boyfriend of yours . . . Praise for Phoebe Luckhurst: 'Entertaining, endearing, and truly unique. Found myself wincing and laughing with familiarity' Emma Gannon 'The year's most original rom-com' Elle 'Hilarious' Evening Standard 'Nostalgic, pitch perfect' Cressida McLaughlin 'Funny and compelling from page one' Lucy Vine
