A laugh-out-loud read from the Sunday Timesbestselling author of If I Never Met You

Anna Alessi - history expert, possessor of a lot of hair and an occasionally filthy mouth - seeks nice man for intelligent conversation and Mills & Boon moments.

Despite the oddballs that keep turning up on her dates, Anna couldn't be happier. As a 30-something with a job she loves, life has turned out better than she dared dream. However, things weren't always this way, and her years spent as the 'Italian Galleon' of an East London comprehensive are ones she'd rather forget.

So when James Fraser - the architect of Anna's final humiliation at school - walks back into her life, her world is turned upside down. But James seems a changed man. Polite. Mature. Funny, even. People can change, right? So why does Anna feel like she's a fool to trust him?

Hilarious and poignant, Here's Looking At Youwill have you laughing one minute and crying the next. The new must-read novel from #1 bestseller Mhairi McFarlane.

Did I enjoy this book: I did. It was a fun story. This is typical chick lit�?�¢??typical British chick lit. That�?�¢??s a good thing. It keeps you entertained, gives you some laughs, and has you wanting to see how it ends. Anna is a woman that went through a transformation after high school, but she hasn�?�¢??t lost her low self-esteem. She now has a great career and has run into her high school crush. However, James doesn�?�¢??t remember her. This provides for some great moments. I love that Anna and James became sort-of friends despite the fact that he doesn�?�¢??t remember her at all. The big reveal was not what I had expected, and I am glad for that. This moment felt more true-to-life. Here�?�¢??s Looking At You has some funny moments. Some of Anna�?�¢??s and James�?�¢??s lines really made me laugh out loud. Would I recommend it: Yes, if you like British chick lit. Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest more
