Tiffy Moore needs a cheap flat, and fast. Leon Twomey works nights and needs cash. Their friends think they’re crazy, but it’s the perfect solution: Leon occupies the one-bed flat while Tiffy’s at work in the day, and she has the run of the place the rest of the time.
But with obsessive ex-boyfriends, demanding clients at work, wrongly imprisoned brothers and, of course, the fact that they still haven’t met yet, they’re about to discover that if you want the perfect home you need to throw the rulebook out the window…
Tiffy is quirky and adorable ( if you loved Lou from me before you, Tiffy will fill that gap and more) . Leon is a genuinely nice bloke who is just a little reserved and prefers the company of the terminally ill.
I loved how their story developed through post it notes and observations of mugs, trainers and dresses hung on wardrobes. It’s amazing what you can learn about someone without having ever met them just by the little clues they leave behind.
Add in some other eccentric characters and a will they won’t they and you get a joy of a read.
This is a charming, sweet delight of a book. It’s a mug of hot tea on a rainy day.
About the author
Beth studied English at university before she started working in children’s book publishing. She lives as close to the countryside as she can get while still being in reach of London, and wrote her first novel, The Flatshare, on her train journey to and from work.
She is now writing novels full time, and if she’s not at her desk, you’ll usually find her curled up somewhere with a book, a cup of tea, and several woolly jumpers (whatever the weather).
