No Such Thing As Perfect (Hardback)Emma Hughes (author)
'I lost count of the number of times I laughed out loud, I was rooting for Laura from the first page. Tender, funny, smart and brilliantly observed. The perfect blend of uplifting escapism and social satire, an utter page turner and such a clever, perceptive moving one. I LOVED it!' DAISY BUCHANAN
No one's life is as perfect as it looks.
Least of all Laura Morrison's. (Although she's not sure how perfect hanging onto your job by a thread and sleeping on an air mattress at your sister's looks, in all honesty.)
When Laura gets the chance to trial Cupid - a high-tech new dating service which will draw on everything she's ever done online to find her perfect match - she figures it's got to be worth a try.
She can't believe her luck when good-looking, kind considerate Adam turns up for their first date. On paper he's...well...perfect.
But when Laura develops feelings for the person who led her to Adam in the first place, familiar doubt creeps in.
Maybe for life to start falling into place, Laura has to learn to let go...
Sharply-observed and laugh-out-loud funny, NO SUCH THING AS PERFECT is the perfect novel for anyone who has ever wondered if there's a formula for finding love.
'Brimming with wit and razor sharp observations' SOPHIE COUSENS, author of This Time Next Year
'Poignant, warm and very, very clever, this is perfect for anyone who thinks they're the only one without the answers. I felt vindicated and lifted after I'd read it!' LAURA JANE WILLIAMS
'I ADORED it! Fast, funny, relatable and super uplifting, with a genius premise and a loveable lead character I was hugely invested in. Every page had me hooked.' HELLY ACTON
'This is a smart thoughtful romcom with real heart and a deeply satisfying ending.' RED
'A fresh, funny, sexy tale of dating woes, family expectations, technological adventure, and loyal friendships, this book will make your world a brighter place' KATHERINE HEINY
'It is so funny (properly laugh-out-loud funny) and smart and full of characters I feel like I know' LAURA KAY
'Whip-smart on relationships, especially the trickiest of family dynamics, all so tenderly and charmingly drawn too' ABBIE GREAVES
