Love is a Thief by Claire Garber

Lovereading view...

As addictive as One Day, funnier than Bridget Jones, as beautiful and touching as When God Was a Rabbit, this is for fans of good books, bad TV and long chats over wine.

If you like Claire Garber you might also like to read books by Sarah Morgan, Jenny Colgan and Adele Parks.


Love is a Thief by Claire Garber

Kate Winters might just be ‘that’ girl. You know the one. The girl who, for no particular reason, doesn’t get the guy, doesn’t have children, doesn’t get the romantic happy ever after. So she needs a plan. What does she like doing? What didn’t she get to do because she fell in love? What would she be happy spending the rest of her life doing if love never showed up again? This is one girl’s journey to take back what love stole.
