'A sweet, genuinely funny, banter-filled delight of a rom-com. I absolutely loved this modern day You've Got Mail' Kerry Winfrey, author of Waiting for Tom Hanks
Love can happen when you least expect it . . .
Dumped by his fiancee, Miles is reduced to couch-surfing across Manhattan and using a local cafe as his office. Also, he no longer believes in love - not exactly a good look in his line of work.
Zoey's eccentric L.A. boss sent her to New York to 'grow'. But beneath her chill Cali exterior, Zoey's terrified to venture beyond the cafe across the street.
Miles and Zoey have absolutely nothing in common. The only thing they share is their daily battle for the cafe's day-old biscotti. They don't know they're both ghost-writing 'authentic' profiles for rival online dating services. Until they meet online, pretending to be other people . . .
As their clients head for dating disaster, Miles and Zoey spend their virtual time falling for one another, but will their online connection turn into a perfect match when they realise who they are IRL?
The perfect love letter to Nora Ephron, Carrie Fisher and all the wonderful rom-coms that act as a pick-me-up when we most need it.
