A tale of love, misunderstandings and second chances in the city that never sleeps. The path of true love never did run smooth....
When Brooklyn bookstore owner Bea James is let down once too often by unreliable boyfriend Otis, she swears off relationships for good, determined instead to focus on her successful business and otherwise happy life in New York.
Meanwhile, on the other side of Manhattan, Jake Steinmann is nursing a broken heart after his beautiful wife Jessica files for divorce. Relocating his life back to New York from San Francisco, he throws himself into setting up his psychiatry practice and supporting older brother Ed who is preparing to wed love of his life, Rosie.
Unexpectedly thrown together at Rosie and Ed's engagement party where they are the only two singles, Bea and Jake bond over their dislike of relationships - a conversation that ends with a promise to never get involved with anyone ever again.
But as their friendship grows both Bea and Jake begin to wish they'd never made their pact. Can they find a way to follow their hearts before it's too late?

Great book, very sweet and innocent. This is my first book by Miranda Dickinson and I certainly will be purchasing her others. The story can be a little predictable but the sweet nature of it is really lovely and I can certainly relate to a lot of the story (which doesn't really happen with chick lits!)
"Lovely lighthearted listen"
Takes a little while to get used to some of the accents but a lovely lighthearted listen with some really great bits to keep you gripped
"Boring and obvious"
A single plot dragged out for 57 chapters. A lot of repetitive thoughts by the characters. No layers at all.
Didn't like the male voices.
"I love these series of books !"
I had not heard of this of this Author before but her books are a delight.
You go through all of the emotions while listening to these books, but they always have a happy ending !
The stories are creative and different with each book and I now have all of them.
The characters are diverse and likeable and the descriptions of the locations are wonderfully thought out with descriptions.
This was a predictable story but enjoyable and easy to listen too. These romantic books are all very to listen to, I was transported to New York which I love X
Great, simple, easy to follow story. Well written & well read. An enjoyable listen! I would recommend this great little audible book.
