It's Elissa's birthday, and she's accidentally booked a cervical smear instead of a celebration... Great. The icing on the cake? Her boyfriend is kicking her out of their houseshare.
So when she's offered the chance to live with a pensioner rent-free, Elissa knows she needs to impress Annie, who turned down the last twenty-two applicants. Somehow, even after Elissa goes on about 'definitely not being an axe-murderer', Annie chooses her.
And just like Elissa, prickly, sweary, big-hearted Annie could use a friend. Elissa may have nowhere else to go, but is she just where she needs to be?
A book you'll want to share with all your friends. The perfect uplifting read for fans of Marian Keyes and Beth O'Leary - and if you love The Lonely Fajita, don't miss Abigail's next book The Sister Surprise!
Shortlisted for a 2019 Comedy Women in Print Prize

About the Author
Abigail is a comedy writer living in London and surviving on a diet of three-shot coffee, bourbons, and vegetarian sausage rolls. She was born and brought up in Norfolk, which she says is to blame for the sardonic humour that runs through her novels. Abigail was the runner-up in 2019's Comedy Women in Print award for The Lonely Fajita: her first novel.
