Waterstones Says

Three women start scouting out prospective dates for each other in comedian Osho's laugh-out-loud debut all about friendship, frustration and looking for love.

Longlisted for the Comedy Women in Print Prize 2021

No woman gets left behind ...

Three best friends are going to solve their relationship woes once and for all

Forty-something Jemima's life is on track - well, sort of, she just need to bat her niggly ex away for good.

Twenty-something Meagan is in the midst of her five-phase plan and is nearly ready for phase three: a relationship.

While thirty-something Simi has had more it's not yous than any I dos.

These best friends decide it's time to ditch the dating apps and play the love game by their own rules. They're going to ask people out in real life...but only for each other. What could possibly go wrong?
