By Chrissie Manby
A brilliantly funny novel of love, heartbreak and holidays from bestselling romantic comedy author Chris Manby.
The romantic getaway to Antigua. But it's with her ex-fiancé. And she's the third-wheel.
Recovering in hospital from an appendix operation, Ali Harris whiles away her time by entering magazine competitions. A few weeks later, she's delighted to discover that she's won first prize in Complete Woman magazine's Most Romantic Couple of the Year competition. There's just one problem. Ali has been dumped by her fiancé, and there's no way she can claim her prize - a romantic holiday for two in Antigua - on her own.
But, with a holiday in the offing, Ali's fiance is keen to kiss and make up. The catch: he's not prepared to give up his new girlfriend. So Ali takes matters into her own hands ...

Chrissie was raised in Gloucester, in the west of England, and now lives in London.
