I’m not the biggest reader of romcoms but I loved this one. It has a terrific premise: Tiffy and Leon share a flat—indeed, a bed—but have never met as Tiffy works during the day, for a small publisher, and nurse Leon works the night shift. Tiffy and Leon narrate in alternate chapters as they navigate their complicated lives—a toxic ex and a wrongly-imprisoned brother—and communicate with each other via a series of Post-It notes. A superlead for Quercus, which will support with an “extensive” marketing campaign, and rights have already sold in 30 territories. A charming, joyous hit.Al

"uproariously funny"

Dumped and homeless, Tiffy can't believe her luck when a reasonably priced flat is offered to her. There's just one catch - she will have to share a bed with the other occupant. Leon words nights at a nursing home and spends weekends with his girlfriend, so in theory, their paths would never need cross - but where would the fun be in that? Uproariously funny with characters you fall for from the first page.

"bursting with character and warmth"

Tiffy needs to find somewhere to live quickly. Leon needs money and a flatmate. Tiffy works days and Leon works nights. They share a bed and a flat - but they have never actually met. A quirky, feelgood read, bursting with character and warmth.
