Summary

A heart-warming and feel-good romcom about a second chance at falling in love, perfect for fans of In Case You Missed It and This Time Next Year.

What happens when the man she married can’t remember her? 

Ellie has the perfect life: a happy marriage, a gorgeous daughter and a baby on the way. But when her husband, Max, suddenly develops amnesia, he forgets everything about the last five years...including his relationship with Ellie. 

Now the man she said ‘I do’ to has become a stranger; he’s not who she married at all. Yet Ellie is determined to get to the bottom of his memory loss and find her Max again - he has to be in there somewhere, right? 

As they get to know one another afresh, Ellie finds herself seeing Max clearly for the first time. But then she discovers that before he lost his memory, Max was keeping a huge secret from her. Will their new beginning prove to be a false start, just as it seemed they might fall in love all over again?

Critic reviews

"Funny and relatable, the perfect blend of light and shade. I love books that blend poignancy with laughter - and this one does it to perfection." (Sophie Cousens, best-selling author of This Time Next Year)

"I feel like I've been on an emotional roller coaster. What a thrilling ride this novel was - strap in and enjoy. Hilarious yet heartfelt, this is romcom writing at its very best!" (Isabelle Broom, author of Hello, Again

"This is Anna Bell's best book yet, and - given how much I've always loved her writing - that's saying a lot. It has all of Anna's unique trademark wit, warmth and wisdom, while also being an incredibly compelling and brilliant story. I fell in love with Ellie and I know you will, too." (Lucy Vine, author of Hot Mess)

No Plot

there really wasn't much of a plot. Everything seems to happen as expected. There are some interesting reflections .
