Have you heard of The Rules of Engagement? It's a book that promises to teach you to find the man of your dreams in 10 easy steps. Unsurprisingly, I don't own a copy. What is it, 1892?
But I'm a journalist, and I've promised to follow it to the letter and write about the results. Never mind that my friends think I'm insane, I'm stalking men all over town, and I can't keep my mouth shut at the best of times.
My name is Cat Buchanan. I'm 36 years old and live with my daughter in Glasgow. I've been single for six years, but that's about to change. After all, I'm on a deadline. I Followed the Rules, and this is what happened.

"Raunchy and hilarious...you'll be laughing all the way to the beach!" (Sun on The List)
Love listening to ebooks in the car on the daily commute. Favourites are trilogy's that keep me entertained for months
I really enjoyed this and got through it in a few days, even laughing out loud in places. Modern, contemporary, and as a single mum myself could relate easily to Cat.
I wil be moving on to "The List", the authors first book immediately.
This book is all it promised to to be and more.. I can see a movie??!!!!!
I absolutely loved this. It's not for everyone as it is a very modern story but I think it is brilliant. I had a smile on my face all the way through the second half. It is original, witty with a feel good factor. Just what I love. The narration starts off quite pacey but you soon get into it and it is excellently read.
"Brilliant - funny - feel good!"
Funny, feel-good, captivating
I love the main character - she has the perfect blend of honest humour.
This is the first and I would definitely listen again
It constantly made me laugh - the first ever adudio book to succeed in doing so. The main character's honest sarcasm is hilarious.
"Humerous story, easy listening"
I've enjoyed this light hearted and unchallenging listen, listened to it from start to finish this afternoon while off work feeling poorly. Just the thing to cheer me up - made me laugh out loud in places. Loved the Scottish accent of the narrator, and thought she did an excellent job with all the different voices and accents. Easy on the ear, and well paced.
"The best book I've ever heard (or read for that matter!)"
I love this author! She is absolutely hilarious. The reader of the story could not be more perfect for the character. The changes in accents and voices were not at all cringeworthy (let's admit! Sometimes it can be!).
I loved every single second of the story. I'll be getting her other book and keeping an eye out for more from this author! Loved it!!
