Publisher's Summary

What happens when the one that got away comes back? Find out in this sparkling debut from Mhairi McFarlane.
"Think of the great duos of history. We're just like them."
"You mean like Kylie and Jason? Torvill and Dean? Sonny and Cher?"
"I think you’ve missed the point, Rachel."

Rachel and Ben. Ben and Rachel. It was them against the world. Until it all fell apart.
It’s been a decade since they last spoke, but when Rachel bumps into Ben one rainy day, the years melt away. They’d been partners in crime and the best of friends. But life has moved on: Ben is married. Rachel is not. Yet in that split second, Rachel feels the old friendship return. And along with it, the broken heart she’s never been able to mend. Hilarious, heartbreaking and everything in between, you’ll be hooked from their first hello.

Good not great

I absolutely love 'it's not me, it's you' and adored the main characters Delia - so was really excited to listen to this. Unfortunately I just couldn't like the main character Rachel - not sure if it was the the narrators voice but i just 'click' with her. The story was good and listenable but definitely wouldn't listen again. A bit disappointing

Another Great One

Huge fan of Mhairi. No one elae makes me laugh out loud as much as her books. This one is another goodie. Only slight downside (which wasn't much of a downaide for me) was it was sometimes hard to tell if the narration was character talk or doing internal thoughts.
