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.

A wonderfully funny will-they-won’t-they romance told with real emotional honesty, perfect for those who loved Sally Thorne’s 99% Mine and Helena Hunting’s Meet Cute.

Critic reviews

"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)

"The joyful, romantic and life-affirming love story you need in your suitcase this summer!" (Red Magazine)

"Tender, energetic and authentic...Such a current love story, but so timeless too. I adored Nadia and Daniel." (Daisy Buchanan)

Wholefully wonderful

Of all of the wonderful things I can say about this book, the first is that it is so whole. Both characters have lives that are lovely and filled with good jobs and good friends - but they still desire to have a romantic partner. And, if this feeling is not relatable enough for all my fellow twenty somethings, because many of their friends are already married they both struggle with doubt and insecurities.

These insecurities are gorgeously written, and mirror my own. They do not ring of self pitty and moping, but rather of what insecurities are. A way for your brain to make sense of the contrast between all you have to offer and you’re current relationship status.

I could continue but my point is clear- you won’t regret listening to Nadia and Daniels story. The writing, performance and story all come together so whole. None of it feeling cheap or superficial. All of it altogether wonderful.

Relatable and cute

For me the storyline was starting out a little slow but after it got going the story got good. The conversations between friend and the internal dialogues were really on point with sentiments felt my millennials today. Loved the feminist vibes. Great rom-com, easy listen.

Lovely

I enjoyed this story a lot!
It took a while for them to finally meet but though it like story dragged a bit, it was fun to read about the characters and how they stayed positive and true to themselves.

Feel-good and smart sweet romance

It's so hard to find a romantic story that is not cliché or too corny, so this book felt like jackpot. The writing is great as well as the narrators. The story is also current and brings up feminist topics that are currently popular without leaning too heavily on it. Yet the romance is well... romantic, pushing the falling-in-love fantasy right up to where it should as far as rom-coms go. Hoping that Laura Jane Williams continues to write fiction.

Trying for PC

Tried so hard to be PC that characters became flat and fake. Male characters were all "feminists", or what this generation thinks is feminist. Not holding women to the same standards that you would hold a man... that seems really off kilter, though.

Female was using other characters for selfish needs. Male counterpart was neutered and really, really unattractive for anything other than a girlfriend.

Just cut this off with an hour to go on a car trip. Sat in silence, bc I decided I didn't care what happened to any of these characters. Shallow book.
