Cath and Si are best friends.

Total opposites, always together, and both unlucky in love. Cath is scatty, messy, and emotionally closed. Si is impossibly tidy, bitchy, and desperate for a man of his own. They live near each other in West Hampstead, close to their other best friends Josh and Lucy - who are married, with a devil-spawn child called Max and a terrifying Swedish nanny, Ingrid.

When Portia steps back into their lives, - beautiful Portia, the undisputed queen of their group at university, who broke their collective hearts one night and from whom they have all gradually, silently, grown apart - her reappearance sets off a chain of events that tests them to the limit. Does Portia have a hidden agenda, or is she just looking for happy endings all round? Whatever the answers, none of them could ever predict the outcome . . .

Praise for Jane Green's earlier bestsellers-

'Funny and honest, it's superb stuff'

'Green writes with acerbic wit about the law of the dating jungle . . . as comforting as a bacon sandwich'
Sunday Times

'This eventful and emotional comedy will have you hooked'

'A warm, lively, wise and distinctly unputdownable novel . . . told with Green's trademark honesty and humour'
