Twenty-eight-year-old Zoe really doesn’t want to end up being a crazy old cat lady. As a chef, she’s used to sharp knives and getting burned, but she didn’t realise that being single was just as dangerous. There are some dates even an extra-large glass of wine can’t fix.


There was the guy who turned up drunk, face planted on the floor, and smelt like he was 90% tequila. He deserves a special mention because she’s sure she spotted an ankle tag beneath his trousers.


Plus the dullest guy in the universe whose idea of sexy talk was droning on about pensions and ‘prudent financial planning’.


Not to mention the one who didn’t even bother to show, leaving her sitting all alone in a bar, staring into her empty glass and dying a bit inside.


After Zoe says ‘thank you, next’ to every dud, her friend Robbie has an idea. He’s a dating machine and he bets that if she takes his love-life advice, her luck will change. Will there ever be a guy who makes her say, ‘thank you, yes’? Or should Zoe just admit defeat and start stockpiling cats?


A feel-good, fresh and fabulous page-turner for anyone who has torn their hair out over their love life, drank their weight in wine to survive an awful date, or stared at their phone, willing it to ring. Fans of rom-coms by Sophie Kinsella and Lindsey Kelk will absolutely love this laugh-out-loud tale.

What a fun read! This is a story of a girl (chef) looking for love in the online data era with the help of astrology and her lovable, promiscuous friend and coworker. And it’s a hilarious and cozy little escape. At first I was worried I couldn’t relate since I am way past my dating days and never experienced online dating at all. Turns out that didn’t matter. The funny situations she gets herself into can be relatable to people of all ages. I would definitely recommend this book to fans of the rom-com genre and to anyone who needs a not-so-serious departure from reality. Thank you to Bookouture, NetGalley, and Sophie Ranald for allowing me to read and review this book.

3.5 stars I greatly appreciate the publishers providing a copy of Thank You, Next via NetGalley. It was a fun read, though Zoë drove me nuts. There are many very relatable aspects of being a woman in your mid-twenties in this book. Painfully relatable. But Zoë is annoying for about 60% of the book, where she blindly goes along with a man's plans for their relationship. It's like watching a friend make poor choices and not being able to tell them to be smarter. And that's another weird thing about Zoë, she has avoided all social ties from any relationships for years, and now she is clearly facing the problem of not having strong friendships where people will tell you you're being foolish. Thank god for Dani I guess, but Zoë really needs more friends, and follow the advice she is so happy to dole out to them.

I first met Zoe in Sophie Ranald's novel Just Saying where she was the heroine's boyfriend's gorgeous ex-girlfriend (the one that got away), so it was a bit of a shock to see her re-imagined here as a short frizzy-haired girl whose hair is more ginger than auburn. Zoe hasn't been on a date in forever and hasn't had sex in even longer so when her sous-chef Robbie suggests she uses Tinder to find a date she decides to combine it with her horoscope app and date men according to their star-sign. Just so that she doesn't mess it up, she decides to start with the signs that are least compatible with her as an Aquarian. What follows is a series of painful dates (and non-dates) with some truly weird men. Maybe this resonates with women closer to Zoe's age but I didn't find it funny, more cringeworthy, and Zoe's inability to extricate herself from these situations just felt like she was a bit of a doormat. Then Zoe finds someone who feels like he could be 'the One', they like the same food, the same films, the same causes, the same music. But could it be that having the same taste doesn't necessarily lead to love? Centred around a South London pub called the Ginger Cat where Zoe works as a chef, this book doesn't shy away from some of the less pleasant aspects of dating. I liked it but I didn't love it. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
