Flatmates

By Chrissie Manby

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

A wickedly funny romantic comedy for anyone who's ever shared a flat with their mates or fallen in love with the wrong man, by bestselling chick lit author Chris Manby.

Have you ever shared a flat with your so-called friends? Do you remember with a shudder the squabbles over the itemised phone bill, the cleaning rota and whose turn it is to do the washing up? If so, you'll sympathise with the three troubled occupants of No. 67 Artesia Road.

Fiona, who's been offered a glorious job in New York, but can't bear to leave Tim, her brilliant - but none-too-devoted - fiancé.

Kerry - who's fed up with spending Saturday night alone in front of the TV, fantasising about her devastatingly handsome - but homosexual - boss.

Linzi - who won't be tied down by any job or man.

They think they've got problems. But nothing can prepare them for the chaos which ensues when Linzi's latest boyfriend arrives on the scene. Gorgeous but feckless, Gaetano spells trouble with a capital 'T'. And soon events are spiralling out of everyone's control . . .

Cass falls instantly in love with Corrie Cottage, the small house perched on a grassy ledge of hillside on the borders of the Riach estate. And when Guy suggests that they take it on as a wedding present to each other, she leaps at the chance; maybe it will set the seal on their marriage as the wedding and honeymoon had failed to do.But it is not long before Cass finds that the more time she spends in Scotland, the less she sees of Guy. And as she becomes increasingly involved with the lives of her neighbours - Gina, struggling with domestic chaos and a recalcitrant teenage daughter; socially competitive Beverley and her enigmatic husband Rick - Cass finds her loyalties shifting inexorably from London, and Guy, to Glen Maraich - and her new friends.
