Do you believe that your life has a pattern?

Evie does. She's going to Glasgow to be a seamstress, creating stunning dresses like Audrey Hepburn used to wear. She's also escaping from her ridiculous, crazed bohemian parents. They think she takes life far too seriously - but surely someone in the family has to be a grown-up?

Glasgow isn't quite what Evie expected: snotty fashionista people, a volatile landlady and a gorgeous moody boy who's proving to be a complete distraction - none of this is part of the tailor-made plan. It's not long before Evie realises that she hasn't exactly got things sewn up... will it unravel before her eyes?

About Lucy Sweet

Lucy Sweet was born in 1972 in Hull, but hasn't let that stop her. She got her first writing job at 19 and is a regular contributor to a wide range of publications as a journalist and cartoonist, including Punch, the Independent on Sunday, the Express and the Sunday Times. She lives in Glasgow with her husband, where she currently juggles multiple careers as a girl-about-town columnist, magazine editor and struggling musician. Coming Apart at the Seams is her second novel. Her first, Have Love Will Travel, is also published by Black Swan.
