Until Next Weekend

The unforgettable and feel-good new novel that will make you laugh and cry

The unpredictable and uplifting novel from a brand new voice in modern romantic fiction.

Noah and Kate were meant to be together forever.

Married with two gorgeous sons, it looked like they'd got their happy ever after.

But marriage isn't easy. And one day, Kate left, taking their two boys with her.

These days, Noah is a weekend dad - and it breaks his heart. He misses the chaotic meal-times, the bedtime stories, the early mornings and the late homework.

Suddenly, he decides enough is enough - he has to win his family back. Starting with Kate.

The only problem?

In six weeks' time, Kate is getting married to someone else...
