Summary

What if you almost missed the love of your life?

Nadia gets the 7.30 train every morning without fail. Well, except if she oversleeps or wakes up at her friend Emma’s after too much wine.

Daniel really does get the 7.30 train every morning, which is easy because he hasn’t been able to sleep properly since his dad died.

One morning, Nadia’s eye catches sight of a post in the daily paper:

To the cute girl with the coffee stains on her dress. I’m the guy who’s always standing near the doors.... Drink sometime?

So begins a not-quite-romance of near misses, true love and the power of the written word.

Includes a bonus Q&A between Laura Jane Williams and Carrie Hope Fletcher.

A No.1 e-book best seller, this wonderful will-they-won’t-they romance is perfect for those who loved Beth O’Leary’s The Flatshare and Mhairi McFarlane’s If I Never Met You.

Critic reviews

"LJ’s honesty and style are unique." (Stylist)  

"A fresh, smart, modern rom com. This is romance seen through the wry eyes of a cynic, and that's what makes it so special – and, ultimately, so uplifting. It had me totally gripped." (Beth O’Leary, author of The Flatshare)

"Our Stop is everything I didn't know I needed in a book. Laura Jane Williams’ writing SEES you, and gives you so much. This is exactly the joyful escapism you need...." (Lucy Vine, author of Are We Nearly There Yet?)

Boring!

Good idea for a book but this was so drawn out end the ending was obvious that after about chapter 30, I got bored and skipped about 15 chapters. Still got the same result and didn't miss much in between- sorry Laura Jane Williams.

Prepare yourself for the biggest smile

Our Stop is a beautiful written heartwarming read. A will they / won’t they romance with the perfect blend of love, humour, heartbreak with girl/boy next door type characters at the core and a supporting brilliant supporting cast.

What an uplifting story!

Listened on a road trip to see family, some of the chapters were a bit explicit to listen to with my mother, but what a brilliantly uplifting story. Characters which are realistic, funny and likeable. Quotes and stories which are relatable and humorous, will definitely be listening again! Possibly my new favourite book, and I don’t say that lightly!

Has you on edge waiting for them to finally meet!

Although at times I was pissed off that the characters didn’t meet all the other previous times - I still loved it and it kept me hooked waiting for that moment!

an absolute must read!

If anyone needs a new read, #OurStop is where it's at. I listened to it all in 4 days and didn't want it to end. It challenges toxic masculinity while being romantic, adorable and about the law of attraction! It made me smile so much and I'm obsessed 💛💖

Great book!

I really enjoyed this story which is a bit like "Sliding Doors" about a couple who don't quite actually meet, always just missing the moment and then finally meeting in the end. The relationships between the characters were heartwarming and lifelike. Also I loved how the story is read by both male and female narrators for the respective characters. All in all a great book

Simple plot too long to reach conclusion

Not feeling this one at all. Found it good for sending me to sleep out of frustration at the story.

Excellent perfect for any londoner

Brilliant book fantasticly read and written. For anyone who has been a singleton in London this is perfect for you as let's be honest who hasn't seen a hotty on the train and wished we said hello. Or read the paper for the missed connections. Can't wait to listen to this again!
