'The new Jojo Moyes ... This has all the ingredients of Me Before You' COSMOPOLITAN

'Funny and winning ... a Richard Curtis rom-com that also has its feet firmly planted in real life. A real treat' Stylist

Tiffy and Leon share a flat
Tiffy and Leon share a bed
Tiffy and Leon have never met...

Tiffy Moore needs a cheap flat, and fast. Leon Twomey works nights and needs cash. Their friends think they're crazy, but it's the perfect solution: Leon occupies the one-bed flat while Tiffy's at work in the day, and she has the run of the place the rest of the time.

But with obsessive ex-boyfriends, demanding clients at work, wrongly-imprisoned brothers and, of course, the fact that they still haven't met yet, they're about to discover that if you want the perfect home you need to throw the rulebook out the window...

'In the league of Bridget Jones and Marian Keyes' Walsh sister books...' Claire Allan

Review quote

An inspired premise... Much Up Lit, often characterised by infantilising whimsy and pat resolutions, raises this reviewer's hackles. The zesty Flatshare, however, proves a tonic * Sunday Times * The last book to completely emotionally absorb me in this way was Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine, and I think fans of that will adore this. . . addictively readable * Daisy Buchanan, Brides Magazine * Uproariously funny with characters you fall for from the first page * Woman & Home * This wee smasher is up-lit/romcom at its best * Sunday Post * The Flatshare is original, charming, warm and properly funny. I loved it * Keris Stainton * A sweet, funny, beautifully written romance -- Maddie Dawson A gorgeously written, highly original love story -- Phoebe Morgan An utterly magical read! * Lauren North * Breaks your heart AND puts it back together -- Catherine Ryan Howard This will be THE heart-warming summer read of 2019 -- Laura Jane Williams A fresh, funny, quirky feelgood read with real heart * Mike Gayle * Incredibly uplifting and joyous.

Fans of Jojo Moyes's Me Before You will love this UpLit romcom * Red Magazine * I loved the way various strands of Tiffy and Leon's lives were crocheted together ... A warm, colourful, unique story and a thoroughly enjoyable read * Sarah Haywood * Set to become the romcom of the year with its loveable characters, comic situations and deeply satisfying love story - a Sleepless In Seattle for the 21st century * Sunday Express * The Flatshare is a huge, heartwarming triumph * Josie Silver, author of One Day in December * It's funny and charming but there are moments of real poignancy, too.

About Beth O'Leary

Beth studied English at university before going into children's publishing. She lives as close to the countryside as she can get while still being in reach of London, and wrote her first novel, The Flatshare, on her train journey to and from work.

She is now writing novels full time, and if she's not at her desk, you'll usually find her curled up somewhere with a book, a cup of tea, and several woolly jumpers (whatever the weather).
