"British author Polly Williams uses a large cast of characters, whose stories crisscross, to weave a vivid tale of second chances and finding true love."
--USA Today

"Williams's infectious romp shows what happens just before a woman surrenders to respectable adulthood. The novel packs a lot of laughs and delivers a snazzy payoff in the last chapter. Take this one to the beach."
--Publishers Weekly

"This engaging second effort from Williams is packed with juicy twists of fate and karmic encounters. Shunning the traditional boy meets girl and lives happily every after formula, Williams treats readers to second chances and hard-won successes on the battlefields of love."
--Kirkus Reviews
