Description

Alex loves Mark. Mark loves Alex. But is love enough?

Since moving to London from the US, twenty-four-year-old Alex Sinclair seems to have it all: a coveted job writing for the theatre, supportive friends, and the man of her dreams--gorgeous Irish actor, Mark Keegan. But in the year since the acclaimed debut of her play, Alex and Mark's lives have been turned upside down.

Thanks to his role on a smash-hit British TV show, Mark is catapulted to stardom. Alex couldn't be happier--until her boyfriend's popularity and insatiable drive to succeed means they're apart more than they're together. Forced to share Mark with showbiz heavy-hitters, intrusive press, and unrelenting fangirls, Alex's hopes for a stable and committed life with him start to fade. Her struggles with panic attacks, career uncertainty, and Mark's increasingly worrisome behaviour make her wonder: how much more can she bend before she breaks?

A passionate tale of secrets, loss, and ambition, London, Can You Wait? is the eagerly-awaited sequel to Middleton's debut novel, London Belongs to Me.

Review quote

PRAISE FOR JACQUELYN MIDDLETON DEBUT, "London Belongs to Me"...

"Middleton's novel is a love letter to London ...even the most skeptical or cynical readers will surrender to the many delights of this compelling narrative. Prepare to be seduced by engaging characters, irresistible in their own quirky way, and transported by keen descriptions of the sights, sounds, and tastes of London."
- Kirkus Reviews

"Middleton's novel is everything a chick-lit story should be. The heroine is so well-developed--with her quirks, nuances, and relatability ... and Middleton's writing style helps the story flow beautifully and freely ... This novel comes with our highest recommendations because it truly makes for a perfect read by the fireplace on a cold winter day. Top pick! 4.5/5 stars"
- RT Book Reviews

"The trustworthy lovers of Bridget [Jones's] single girl, younger days in London are going to adore London Belongs to Me, the coming-of-age story of a girl (who could be Bridget's younger American cousin!) coming to London to find love and adventure."
- Redbook Magazine, 15 Fall Books You Should Read Based on Your Favorite TV Shows and Movies

"London Belongs to Me is a delight. A sweet, nostalgic debut that will transport readers to those first heady days of being on one's own in the great wide world."
- Andrea Dunlop, author of Losing the Light

"Any Anglophile will relate to heroine Alex's love of the Big Smoke--even when it's not so kind to her. But while navigating the city and the theatre district, Alex is also navigating her first foray into new adulthood, and with that we get an emotive love letter to London that you'll never want to end."
- Nicole Trilivas, author of Girls Who Travel.
