Mhairi was born in Scotland in 1976 and has been explaining how to pronounce her name ever since. (With a `V', not an `M'. Yes, that's us crazy Celts for you).She is based in Nottingham where she used to be a local journalist and now she's a freelance writer and sometime-blogger, which we all know is code for messing about on Twitter.She likes drinking wine, eating food and obtaining clothes; all the impressive hobbies. Her best anecdotes involve dislocating her elbow tripping over a briefcase and a very bad flight to New York. She lives with a man and a cat.

Customer Reviews

It becomes clear with this book very quickly what the state of play is. Rachel and Ben are best friends through Uni but there are very definitely underlying feelings there between them. The problem Rachel is in a long-term relationship. When they go their separate ways at the end of Uni their friendship falls apart and ten years later bump into each other reigniting their friendship and those old feelings, except this time Ben is married. While the story was easy to read, and emotionally charged throughout I just didn’t connect to either of the characters in the way I would have liked. I found them both a little self-serving and immature. While the outcome is pretty much a given in these books I was hoping they would walk away lonely and apart because I didn’t think they deserved each other, they didn’t deserve that love or even wanted it enough. This was a fail for me, I didn’t enjoy the characters, every single person in this book is out for themselves, there is a definite lack of human compassion here. I found the plot predictable and unoriginal and I didn’t connect with the writing style at all.
