When You Read This
By Mary Adkins
WHEN YOU READ THIS is a warm, heart-breaker of a novel, and just as you think you might be on the verge of tears, it will tip you over into laughter instead.
Iris was going to open a bakery one day. She was going to fall in love again one day. She was going to do something else with her life. Until her life was suddenly over.
Smith has lost his best friend and closest colleague in one go. He's holding on to things by a thread. Being an adult is harder than it looks.
Jade has everything figured out. She knows what she wants and where she's going. But losing your sister and falling in love with a man who is falling apart doesn't quite fit the plan.
Carl is the intern, and he doesn't understand why these adults can't pull themselves together.
Funny and moving in equal measures, WHEN YOU READ THIS is a sparkling debut about love, life, and all the emails you really wish you'd never sent, perfect for fans of WHERE'D YOU GO BERNADETTE, ALL GROWN UP and ATTACHMENTS.
