A hilarious, heart-warming read perfect for fans of Shirley Valentine and You’ve Got Mail.

Could the worst thing that’s ever happened to Hannah Pinkman also turn out to be one of the best?

She and her husband Dan have reached the end of the line. Bored with the same gripes, the same old arguments – in fact, bored with everything – they split up after a trivial row turns into something much more serious.

Now Hannah has to make a new life for herself, but that’s not easy. She’s been so busy being a wife and mum that she’s let all her other interests slip away, along with her friends. And when Hannah is persuaded to join a dating site, her ‘best match’ is the very last person she expects it to be . . .

A clever, funny and poignant novel about life after a long relationship, the importance of friendship, and rediscovering your identity.

incredibly funny story about a couple in their almost fifties, that break up on New Years Day, and then try to spend the next year trying to move on from each other.

Told from Hannah's perspective, we see just what dating is like for a slightly older woman, and it sounds no better than for younger women! It is hilarious, from an outsiders point of view at least!

I loved how Hannah tries to make new friends, tries internet dating, and all sorts of other things to try to get over Dan, but you need to read the book to see if anything works. 

This was quite a quick and easy book to read, and I think there are characters within it that anyone can relate to. 

Really enjoyed Would Like To Meet and would be interested to see what else the author writes in the future, 

Thank you to Avon and Netgalley for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
