Summary

‘You want me to write a list? Like a shopping list?'

Gwendolyn nodded. 'Exactly. But for what you want from a man, not ASDA.’

Florence Fairfax isn’t lonely. She loves her job at the little bookshop in Chelsea and her beloved cat Marmalade keeps her company at night. She might have been single for quite a while – well, forever actually, if anyone’s asking – but she’s perfectly happy, thank you. And then Florence meets eccentric love coach Gwendolyn, and everything changes.

When Gwendolyn makes Florence write a wish list describing her perfect man, Florence refuses to take it seriously. Finding someone who likes cats, has the sexual athleticism of James Bond and can overlook her ‘counting’ habit? Impossible! Until, later that week, a handsome blond man asks for help in the bookshop.... 

Rory seems to fit the list perfectly. But is he ‘the one’, or simply too good to be true? Florence is about to find out that her criteria for Mr Right aren’t as important as she thought – and that perhaps she’s been looking for love in all the wrong places....

The Wish List 5 stars.

This book was so funny, made me cry with laughter and a little sadness at one point. This is my book of 2020- it was so good. When listening no thoughts of COVID-19, it literally helped me escape this challenging year. I started to listen to this whilst away in North Norfolk looking out at the amazing views. Thank you Sophia I have already downloaded another book by you.

Great read to take your mind off reality for a bit

I really enjoyed this book. I have read 3 from this author now. I do notice a similar thread between the books but I like the characters and the writing and it drew me in where by mid way through I just couldn’t put it down.

Perfect for a road trip!

I liked this book a lot. British women (especially romcom leads) are oh so similar. this one is no different. but it's a silly story about trying to find the balance in love. as I'm 35 and not had a boyfriend, I understand some of Flo's thought process, which bored some of the other reviewers. There's not much surprise and not especially deep, so perfect if you need to smile whole driving hours to go camping with 2 pups that don't provide much conversation.

Loved it!

A really descriptive book with characters that are easily identifiable. I am an expat living in Abu Dhabi and previous to that hailed from Fulham so this book really transported me back to my old life and made me look forward to Christmas! Can’t wait for the next one.
