Crochet book editor Tiffy and hospice nurse Leon are, not unusually, flat-sharing for financial reasons but unlike most cohabiters, they have never actually met, choosing to communicate through Post-It notes and food leftovers. Though it may sound sentimental, this accomplished debut also covers emotional abuse, wrongful imprisonment and workplace issues with confidence and skill. One of my books of the year, this funny, heart-warming, unconventional love story is a thoroughly enjoyable read, providing the perfect escape from today’s doom and gloom!

Tiffy Moore needs a cheap flat, and fast.
Leon Twomey works nights and needs cash.
Their friends think they're crazy, but it's the perfect solution: Leon occupies the one-bed flat while Tiffy's at work in the day, and she has the run of the place the rest of the time.
But with obsessive ex-boyfriends, demanding clients at work, wrongly-imprisoned brothers and, of course, the fact that they still haven't met yet, they're about to discover that if you want the perfect home you need to throw the rulebook out the window...
