Love Your Life

Number One bestselling author Sophie Kinsella returns with the perfect summer read: an irresistible new standalone about falling in love with someone - but not necessarily with their life...

I love you . . . but what if I can't love your life?

Ava is sick of online dating. She's always trusted her own instincts over an algorithm, anyway, and she wants a break from it all. So when she signs up to a semi-silent, anonymous writing retreat in glorious Italy, love is the last thing on her mind.

Until she meets a handsome stranger. . . All she knows is that he's funny, he's kind and - she soon learns - he's great in bed. He's equally smitten, and after a whirlwind, intoxicating affair, they pledge their love without even knowing each other's real names.

But when they return home, reality hits. They're both driven mad by each other's weird quirks and annoying habits, from his eccentric, naked-sauna-loving family to her terribly behaved, shirt-shredding dog. As disaster follows disaster, it seems that while they love each other, they just can't love each other's lives. Can they overcome their differences to find one life, together?

Pre-order this one right now, you won't regret it!

Good Housekeeping

As warm as the Italian sunshine and full of fun. A fabulous Italian appetiser, like a platter of antipasti, a stunning, satisfying mix of romance and real life; with characters that you will fall in love with, that will leave you smiling with joy. Like a glorious dinner party with friends, it left me feeling happy, warm and staying up far later than I should so as not to miss a thing. I loved it! It left me wanting more!

Jo Thomas

As close to perfect as romantic comedies get.

Sophie Kinsella is one of my favourite authors, and Love Your Life might just be her best book yet. It's a joyful, hilarious and heart-warming tale of the challenges we face when we sign up to be part of someone else's life. It made me laugh out loud and it made me cry happy tears - I adored it.
