Sometimes you have to hit rock bottom to rise again…
The hilarious new heartbreaker from Mhairi McFarlane!
If there’s one thing worse than being fired from the grottiest restaurant in town, it’s coming home early to find your boyfriend in bed with someone else.
Reeling from the indignity of a double dumping on the same day, Georgina snatches at the next job that she’s offered – barmaid in a newly opened pub, which just so happens to run by the boy she fell in love with at school: Lucas McCarthy. And whereas Georgina (voted Most Likely to Succeed in her school yearbook) has done nothing but dead-end jobs in the last twelve years, Lucas has not only grown into a broodingly handsome man, but also has turned into an actual grown-up with a business and a dog along the way.
Meeting Lucas again not only throws Georgina’s rackety present into sharp relief, but also brings a dark secret from her past bubbling to the surface. Only she knows the truth about what happened on the last day of school, and why she’s allowed it to chase her all these years…
I know it’s not summer anymore (at least not in the southern hemisphere), but for anyone looking for their next beach or weekend couch read — this is it.
There’s something about Mhairi McFarlane’s writing that pulls me right in and doesn’t spit me out until I get to the end. I remember the first time I picked up Who’s That Girl, thinking ‘this will be an easy read, I’m not going to get too emotional surely’. I’m sure you know how the rest panned out.
Don’t You Forget About Me pulled at my heartstrings equally as much, perhaps even more than Who’s That Girl, as I absolutely adored the two main characters, Georgina and Lucas.
Mhairi’s characters and storylines are always beautifully fleshed out. And most importantly, they’re always so real. I would believe if she told me that Georgina and Lucas are based on real life people that she came across once upon a time because they really feel this way. It’s like I’m peaking into the lives of these people every time I read a Mhairi novel.
