Wonderfully likeable characters and a realistic plot.

The dates in How To Get a (Love) Life can be excruciatingly awkward, but they're hilarious... a great read.
Hello magazine

A very funny, very real portrayal of someone struggling with an extremely large rut... Nicola's search for a date and, ultimately, for someone to love is ridiculously funny, sweet and had a proper 'sigh out loud and hug my kindle end.' I'm sad I've finished it.

With crazy, laugh out loud dating disasters, How to Get a (Love) Life is a funny and warm read that will leave you smiling at the end.
Judging Covers

I really, really enjoyed this book! It's full of laugh out loud moments and the charming prose leads you through Nicola's story in a way which allows you to invest yourself in it.

The book became funnier and funnier. It was like Rosie had snuck into my life, taken notes and made a comical story out of it. It was a highly realistic plot with plenty of twists and turns.

Hilarious... If you prefer your romance stories gutsy and real rather than mushy and clichéd, you'll gallop through this.
