Waterstones Says

Deliciously light and frothy, O’Leary’s wonderfully uplifting debut is a joyous confection of comic misunderstanding and endearing romance between two residents of the same flat who happen to have never met.   

Shortlisted for the Comedy Women in Print Prize 2020

Tiffy and Leon share a flat
Tiffy and Leon share a bed
Tiffy and Leon have never met...

Tiffy Moore needs a cheap flat, and fast. Leon Twomey works nights and needs cash. Their friends think they're crazy, but it's the perfect solution: Leon occupies the one-bed flat while Tiffy's at work in the day, and she has the run of the place the rest of the time.

But with obsessive ex-boyfriends, demanding clients at work, wrongly imprisoned brothers and, of course, the fact that they still haven't met yet, they're about to discover that if you want the perfect home you need to throw the rulebook out the window...
