Summary

If you liked The Flatshare, you will love this audiobook....  

It’s Elissa’s birthday and she’s accidentally booked a cervical smear instead of a celebration...great. The icing on the cake? Her boyfriend is kicking her out of their houseshare. So when she’s offered the chance to live with a pensioner rent-free, Elissa knows she needs to impress Annie, who turned down the last 22 applicants. Somehow, even after Elissa goes on about ‘definitely not being an axe-murderer’, Annie chooses her. And just like Elissa, prickly, sweary, big-hearted Annie could use a friend.

Elissa may have nowhere else to go, but is she just where she needs to be?  

An audiobook you’ll want to share with all your friends. The perfect uplifting listen for fans of Marian Keyes and Beth O’Leary.   

Shortlisted for a 2019 Comedy Women in Print Prize.
