When Peter phones his car insurance company to report an accident he gets put through to Mina and there starts a delightful, old fashioned love story. We follow their separate lives which, although have vast differences also, have great parallels and as fate keeps bringing them back together through the call centre romantic feelings start to develop between this unlikely couple. A charming romantic comedy you won’t want to put down.

If you like Rosy Thornton you might also like to read books by Cecelia Ahern and Kate Long.

Synopsis

Crossed Wires by Rosy Thornton

This is the story of Mina, a girl at a Sheffield call centre whose next customer in the queue is Peter, a Cambridge geography don who has crashed his car into a tree stump when swerving to avoid a cat. Despite their obvious differences, they've got a lot in common -- both single, both parents, both looking for love. Could it be that they've just found it?CROSSED WIRES is an old-fashioned fairy tale.

It is about the small joys and tribulations of parenthood; about one-ness and two-ness; about symmetry and coincidence; about the things that separate us and the things that bring us together.
