A sparkling new romantic comedy from the acclaimed author of Amanda's Wedding. Holly is a frustrated florist whose life doesn't exactly seem to be coming up roses. Fleeing the houseshare from hell, she moves in with Josh, a sexually confused merchant banker; Kate, a high-flying legal eagle with talons to match, and the gorgeous Addison, who spends his days communicating only with his computer and those who worship at the altar of Captain Jean-Luc Picard. Holly's desperate to have a one-to-one with Addison, but can she drag him away from his monstrously ugly, not to say jealous internet 'girlfriend' Claudia, or will they just continually get their wires crossed?

UK Kirkus Review »
This is Colgan's second novel. Holly is a florist who is finding life to be a thorn in her side. After a great escape from a nightmare houseshare, she seeks sanctuary in the form of the old university chums Josh, who tries desperately not to appear gay and Kate, a woman who likes to think she could give Cruella de Vil a run for her money. Living with them is Addison, an unsociable but otherwise beautifully formed computer geek. In true anorak style, Addison never leaves his room and only communicates with his none too pretty girlfriend Claudia, from Baltimore. Determined to claim Addison as her very own, Holly begins visiting him within the sacrosanct walls of his techno kingdom, feminine wiles emanating from every pore. Just as Holly's dreams appear to be coming true, an accident thows the entire household into panic, leading our love-starved hopefuls into unlikely romance. Colgan's witty dialogue and sparse narrative provide her audience with an enjoyable and truly comical look at modern life and its timeless obsession with love. (Kirkus UK)
