'I absolutely loved this book and didn't want it to end' Liane Moriarty, author of Big Little Lies and Nine Perfect Strangers.

The Man Who Didn't Call by Rosie Walsh is the perfect novel for anyone who's ever waited for a phone call that didn't come.

Imagine you meet a man, spend seven glorious days together, and fall in love. And it's mutual: you've never been so certain of anything.

So when he leaves for a long-booked holiday and promises to call from the airport, you have no cause to doubt him.

But he doesn't call.

Your friends tell you to forget him, but you know they're wrong: something must have happened; there must be a reason for his silence.

What do you do when you finally discover you're right? That there is a reason - and that reason is the one thing you didn't share with each other?

The truth.

For fans of Jojo Moyes and Liane Moriarty, this is the love story of the year . . .

Sarah is the woman saying out load all of those little thoughts that have ran through our minds at the starting point of our love lives, whether it went on to be a successful relationship or not. I think in this day and age we can spend a lot of time over-analyzing other peoples words and actions (or lack of them). So when I started listening to this book, I could understand and connect with Sarah on so many levels because I have been her at one point in time. Not only that, it had a thrill element to it that kept me on the edge of my seat wondering if Eddie was a more sinister guy than what he'd first let on to be, and thinking to myself how evil a person must be to put somebody through that much emotional and mental stress. I felt for Sarah and was inspired by her character. How no matter what she always picked herself up after every knockdown and kept on going in pursuit of happiness. There are great twists and turns throughout so be prepared to keep questioning what is happening. Sarah's friends are particular gems in this one, and were such likable and believable characters. I really enjoyed this and highly recommend that those who come across it give it a read!

Rosie Walsh has captured my heart with her beautiful writing, loveable characters and breathtaking story! I was hooked from the outset and adored Sarah, the main character whose perspective this story is told from. Sarah and Eddie met by chance then spent the next seven days together; a truly perfect seven days. I could really imagine myself in Sarah’s shoes questioning just what could have happened to Eddie to result in him not calling from the airport like he promised before boarding his flight for a long-booked holiday (this being the reason their seven days together had to come to an end). Was the mutual feeling of falling in love in reality only one sided? Sarah’s friends tell her to forget him but Sarah knows deep down something must have happened; there must be a reason for Eddie’s total silence. There were so many wonderful people in Sarah’s life who I really enjoyed getting to know. I loved seeing her relationships with each of these characters as the story progressed. It was so interesting to see how Sarah attempted to balance their views against her own beliefs about Eddie. I really liked how the chapters in Part 1 would change from the present back to some of the key moments during Sarah and Eddie’s magical seven days together too. This allowed a real insight in to what Sarah experienced and how her heart became full of love and longing for Eddie. This wonderful story has taken me on a real rollercoaster of emotions with unexpected twists and turns which have made this such a fantastic read! In one particular chapter I gasped aloud in shock only to later feel my heart break and my eyes welling with tears. The opening of part 3 was also so clever in reinforcing something I felt had to be the only outcome, only for me to then be delivered with another amazing revelation which made my heart soar! This is an absolutely breathtaking story and I am so excited to see what Rosie writes next. In the meantime, I will be recommending this book to everyone!
