The hilarious, feel-good, romantic comedy debut novel from No. 1 bestselling author Robert Bryndza.

‘Crime thrillers and romantic comedy, both—who knew?! Had me belly laughing just as hard as I bite my nails when I read his suspense novels. Bryndza is a multi-talented writer!’ Goodreads reviewer, 5 stars.

Coco Pinchard has just turned forty, and is feeling fabulous. Her long-held dream to be a writer has been realised, with the publication of her debut novel, her son, Rosencrantz, is attending a prestigious London drama school, and her musician husband, Daniel, seems more in love with her than ever. Coco feels poised to enter an exciting new chapter in life.

When the New Year dawns after a hideous Christmas spent with her awful in-laws, Coco catches Daniel in bed with a younger woman, her novel flops, and Rosencrantz goes spectacularly off the rails.

As her once-happy life unravels, and any chance of an exciting new chapter recedes into the distance, Coco’s new iPhone becomes her confessional.

Through emails to loyal friends Christopher, a neurotic middle-aged socialite, and Marika, a slightly alcoholic schoolteacher, Coco begins to document her seemingly endless (and often hilarious) run of bad luck.

When Coco reaches the top of the local allotment list (after putting her name down nineteen years previously) she meets the drop-dead gorgeous Adam, and she's back in the world of dating as a single forty-something. Read the emails that tell the hilarious, feel-good tale of Coco picking up the pieces!

Fans of rom coms by Sophie Kinsella will be glued to the pages of this totally addictive page-turner!
