'One of the funniest debuts for years' SUNDAY TIMES
'The most fun I've had reading in the longest time' MARIAN KEYES
'An absolute riot' THE UNMUMSY MUM

You wait ages for The One . . . then 203 come along at once

One night Lauren finds a strange man in her flat who claims to be her husband. All the evidence – from photos to electricity bills – suggests he’s right.

Lauren’s attic, she slowly realises, is creating an endless supply of husbands for her.

There’s the one who pretends to play music on her toes.
The one who’s too hot (there must be a catch).
The one who makes a great breakfast sandwich.
The one who turns everything into double entendres (‘I’ll weed your
garden’).
And the one who can calm her unruly thoughts with a single touch.

But when you can change husbands as easily as changing a lightbulb, how do you know whether the one you have now is the good-enough one, or the wrong one, or the best one? And how long should you keep trying to find out?

'A wonderful, wonderful novel' JENNIE GODFREY
'A time-bending gem' GABRIELLE ZEVIN
'Laugh-out-loud funny, perceptive and utterly original' RED

“Buzz”

There is already a buzz on The Husbands, similar to the kind of buzz that signals change in this book. Lauren is a single woman, who one day has a man she doesn’t know come down from her attic. He is a husband, but... More

“Perfect for a Sunday”

When I read the blurb for this on I was intrigued, I love a romance novel but this one had a twist. Diving in I was hooked straight away.

Lauren arrives home after a night out with someone in her house, apparently... More
