Summary

It’s normal to prefer getting a filling at the dentist’s to spending time with your husband, right? 

I thought I was sorted on the life front. I was a heart surgeon with a loving partner and two gorgeous little girls. Except my husband’s version of "loving" is lying, cheating, and sleeping his way around London. Which means I definitely deserve a refund. 

Unfortunately, moving on isn’t that simple. Just because I know how to operate on a heart doesn’t mean I know how to fix my broken one. Plus, I lost the receipt for him years ago, so I’m definitely getting shortchanged. 

But now that I’m single, am I ready to mingle? There are a few minor issues: 

  1. The last time I went on a date, double denim was in fashion and my eyebrows were horrendously overplucked. 
  2. Men wear stupidly skinny jeans now. 
  3. I don’t know how to use dating apps, but at least I don’t have to get changed out of my pajamas. 
  4. Sometimes the most promising thing you have in common with a guy is a shared love of prawns. 
  5. I don’t know whether to open a date with "hi" or "hello" or "hey". and once I ended up saying "howdy". 

Everything happens for a reason, they say. There’s plenty more fish in the sea. But what happens when everything falls apart and you haven’t got a clue how to go fishing? 

An absolutely hilarious and utterly relatable tale for anyone who has ever survived a nightmare relationship, felt a little lonely, or nursed a broken heart with wine and carbs. This feel-good novel will get you back on your feet and genuinely laughing out loud. Perfect for fans of Why Mummy Drinks, Sophie Ranald, and Sophie Kinsella.

Genuinely laugh out loud

Absolutely hilarious and brilliant. I can't quite believe how the author came up with a character like Simon but I hold my hands up to her - WOW! The biggest arsehole you can imagine then triple it. But he does centre around a lot of the comedy. Easygoing, heartfelt and full of charm. Does not disappoint.

Brilliantly funny!

Absolutely hysterical and very awesome insight into real life and the complexities of family life nad marraige. I adore The sisters and was so excited to find out that Kristen has written two other stories from two of hte other sisters. This was the first one of her's i've read nad I loved it so much I immediately went out and got the second. They can be read in any order, which I love and whilst I had purchased it for my kindle I ended up also buying it for audible so that I could listen on the go. The audio really ads another layer to the comedy and the characters. Brilliantly funny and definitely worth a listen!

Enjoyable story but..

I enjoyed listening to the story and it was nice to hear about Meg after having read the other book. However I really did not like the performance. It was better in the end, maybe because you get use to it. But the men voices were not pleasant. I enjoyed the sisterhood.
