Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

You've heard of a locked room mystery, now get ready for a locked room love story!

Meet housemates Ellen, Alexa and Jack. They're broke. They're lonely. They're hungover. And things are about to go from bad to worse....

Whilst nursing the Hangover from Hell, Ellen stumbles downstairs to discover the kitchen slowly filling with water.

Panic quickly sets in, and the three flatmates find themselves in the attic desperately attempting to switch off the water supply. But when Ben, Alexa's Hinge date from the night before, walks in, the door slams, the handle breaks and all four of them are trapped.

As the long hours tick by, Ellen nurses her sore head whilst Ben and Alexa really get to know each other, and Jack plans an unorthodox rescue mission.

But soon Ellen wonders if Ben really is a stranger after all. She is sure she knows him from somewhere....

Will these housemates ever get out of this attic? Will they survive the wrath of Elias The Evil Landlord? And will Jack please stop live-tweeting this whole fiasco?

Welcome to The Lock In.

This is a hilarious story of housemates and hangovers and friendship and dating as four 20-somethings discover what the worst morning-after-the-night-before really looks like....

Fans of Dolly Alderton, Beth O'Leary and Mhairi McFarlane will LOVE this oh-so relatable tale of love, landlords and what can happen behind locked doors.

Avoid at all costs

You will never get back the hours spent reading this painfully dull book!
Choose another this is downright awful.
No plot & same old repeating.

Outstanding! Loved it.

So poignant about the teenage years & realistic about the joys of flat sharing. Funny too. Loved all the characters, couldn't decide on a favourite.
