Publisher's Summary

What happens when a prickly cat lady runs into the new dog owner next door?

Brittny Parker, an American graduate student, is moving to London with her lovable Boston terrier, Cooper, in time for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the 2012 Olympics. Could life get any better? How about adding a super-sexy woman next door? The problem is her snooty neighbor is not a dog person. In fact, she despises Cooper from the moment he knocks her over and sends her groceries spilling all over the ground.

Prin Jones is a native-born Londoner whose most successful relationship is with Francesca, her Persian cat. With a bakery to run and an unpleasant ex-girlfriend to dodge, the last thing Prin needs in her life is an obnoxious American and her poorly trained dog. But it becomes almost impossible not to run into Brit at every turn.

When Francesca and Cooper decide to become balcony friends and Prin’s twin sister takes on the role of enthusiastic matchmaker, Brit and Prin decide to give each other a second chance. All they need is one date to see if there might be something more between them.

It should be easy, right? But somehow, everything keeps going hilariously and disastrously wrong.

Can two women from different worlds meet in the middle to become more than neighbors?

Best-selling lesbian romance author T.B. Markinson has written a hilarious and quirky story about finding love in a foreign land.

Cute

Another cute T B Markinson story. It’s very similar to The Set Up, including that one of the MC is American, but the narrator never uses an American accent. I find that puzzling. But the story is entertaining enough that I was able to get past it. This may have been a better read, though, for that reason.

Loved the story

I thought the story was cute, I didn’t like that it was in first person, because the narrator made it sound like a one long chatterbox… that gave me a headache.
Loved the characters, and the pets in the story.

Lovely ♥

A quick read, very entertaining and with a feel-good sense to it, this is a cute story with lots of humour and zero drama.

It's set in 2012, with the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and the Olympic Games filling a festive London with tourists ready to enjoy multiple celebrations.
Brit and Prin are interesting characters and I liked the contrapositions: British and American; cat-lady, dog-lady; kind of mysterious and proper, chatty and non-self-conscious at all. That made for a more interesting couple :D

A lovely, light-hearted read.

Good book &:audio

I enjoyed this book and the audio book is a welcome addition. Ella Lynch is a good performer her American accent is a bit hit and miss at times but that did not spoil what was a good.
I do like T B Markinsons stories and she is an author that I search out.
