Summary

True love is always worth the wait...isn’t it?

From the Sunday Times best-selling author of Just My Luck and Both Of You, comes an unpauseable novel about discovering what it truly means to find the love of your life....

Georgina has been in love with Hugh since she was 18. Tall, handsome and career driven, he's everything she ever wanted - but totally out of her league. Oh, and married.

Over the years, Georgina transformed herself into what she hoped Hugh would see as the ideal woman. And it paid off. At 32, she now has the career, the body and at last, the man she's always desired.

But her dream come true hits shaky ground when she falls pregnant. Already-father-of-two Hugh isn't overjoyed, and as Georgina grows bigger, so does the distance between them.

And with the clock ticking to her baby's arrival, Georgina has to ask herself - who is the real love of her life.

Great ending.

Not what I was expecting. I'd describe it as very upper class. Great conclusion.

Disappointing

I have enjoyed all of the author’s previous books, but I’m afraid I really found it hard to engage with any of the characters, except one (Libby). Georgina just wasn’t very likeable and I began to feel a bit sorry for Hugh by the end, despite his weaknesses. I hope her next book has warmer characters
