You Had Me at Hello by Mhairi McFarlane
What happens when the one that got away comes back? 'Think of the great duos of history. Y'know, like Batman and Robin. We're just like them.' 'Er, Rodney and Del Boy more like.' Rachel and Ben. Ben and Rachel. It was them against the world. Until it all fell apart. It's been a decade since they last spoke, but when Rachel bumps into Ben one rainy day, the years melt away. But life has moved on. Ben is married. Rachel is not. Yet in that split second, Rachel feels the old friendship return. And along with it, the broken heart she's never been able to mend.

'I loved this: An original, genuinely funny, genuinely moving, modern love story.' Katy Regan
'You Had Me at Hello had me right from the very first line. Bitingly sharp and achingly funny, this is a modern day twist on the classic Persuasion...except this time, Jane Austen is in jeans with a drink in one hand and a take on relationships that's guaranteed to have you bent double. I absolutely loved it!' Claudia Carroll
