The Fixer Upper (Paperback)Lauren Forsythe (author)
'This was a fun, fast read. I really enjoyed it! A sweet childhood-friends-to-enemies-to-lovers British romantic comedy.' - Abby Jimenez, author of The Friend Zone
'The feminist rom-com of the year! ... Lauren Forsythe is a bright new talent.' - Laura Jane Williams
An astonishingly relevant, funny and heartfelt romantic comedy about a universal experience that is yet to be explored in fiction: the emotional labour of dating men.
Ever since she can remember, Aly has tried fixing things: her parents' marriage, colleagues' work problems, and all her friends' love lives. But when she bumps into her ex - who has gone from a living in his parents' basement to a happily-married success - she realises she's been fixing her boyfriends, too . . .
Her best friends call it 'The Aly Effect.'
When an in-joke with her friends at the office spirals out of control, Aly uses her talents to set up THE FIXER UPPER- an exclusive underground service for women who are tired of mothering, nagging and coaching their boyfriends through life.
Before long, a mysterious celebrity client hires them for their biggest challenge yet: turning her boyfriend into the perfect fiancé in three weeks.
There's just one catch . . . He's Aly's first love.
And he's not at all pleased to see her.
'This book slides modern romance under a microscope with wry, sharp humour and equally fierce warmth. I loved it!' - Abigail Mann, author of The Wedding Crasher
'A fabulous, fast-paced, feminist rom-com that I couldn't put it down. Packed with relatable characters, The Fixer-Upper is a super-cute second-chance romance that shines a light on love, friendship and the realities of twenty-first-century life.' - Kitty Wilson, author of Every Day In December
'Forsythe understands the contemporary romance genre and writes with confidence. With likeable characters and good pacing, this debut novel offers a great second-chance romance.' - Library Journal
'I loved this book! The Fixer Upper is by turns witty and tender, observant and heart-wrenchingly romantic in a thoroughly modern way. I will be thinking about it for a long time to come.' - Jenny Bayliss, author of The Twelve Dates of Christmas
