‘This is men,’ said Gran. ‘When they vant you, but you don’t vant them, they stay. But let them know you vant them, they no longer need you, and they go! It’s like that movie, Nanny McPhee.’
Natalie Love has worked hard to have it all. She runs a successful London theatre that’s about to host one of Hollywood’s leading stars, Ryan Harrison. She’s pretty sure she’s found her man in yoga boyfriend Benjamin, despite his annoying habit of saying Namaste! every time he speaks. And her eccentric, glamorous Hungarian gran is always on hand to offer sage advice and steaming bowls of goulash.
Life in the bright lights of London has always been Natalie’s escape from her chaotic family in rural Devon and Jamie, the childhood sweetheart she left at the altar fifteen years ago. Until he turns up at her theatre door…
Jamie is in town producing a West End show and with rivalry suddenly clouding old feelings, this isn’t quite the reunion Natalie was expecting.
Will Benjamin prove to be Natalie’s perfect match? With Ryan turning her head, Natalie is more confused than ever. And what about Jamie – could he be her second chance at first love?
Charming, hilarious and totally unputdownable, Miss Wrong and Mr Right will put a huge smile on your face and keep you guessing who Natalie’s ‘Mr Right’ is until the very last page.
Having read a couple of the books in the Coco Pinchard series, I knew that I would be in for a highly entertaining read with the stand alone novel Miss Wrong and Mr Right, and as usual the author did not disappoint.
We first meet Natalie on her wedding day when she realises she is too young to settle down and wants to live her life first before considering walking down the aisle. Poor Jamie is devastated but no one can change Natalie’s mind.
Fast forward so many years and Natalie has a successful career running a theatre but unfortunately her love life leaves a lot to be desired. When Jamie reappears in her life, her near on perfect life starts to unravel.
There has to be a special mention to Natalie’s Hungarian Gran. What a fabulously hilarious character she is. I absolutely loved her. She has the most fascinating past, though I have a sneaky feeling that she has a habit of stretching the truth slightly, but for her age she is very forward in her thinking, much to Natalie’s despair at times.
What I love about this novel is that it doesn’t feel like your bog standard love story. The author really brings the story as well as the characters very much to life and it has the perfect mix of fun and romance with a realistic storyline that love doesn’t always run smoothly and is far from all hearts and flowers.
There really are some great characters and even though I really liked Natalie, I have to say her Gran and Ryan were my personal favourites. Both characters bring so much fun to the story, though saying that, Natalie’s run in with the Best Hair award pretty much had me crying with laughter and was certainly one of many highlights in this wonderful novel.
Miss Wrong and Mr Right is the perfect read to bring lightness and laughter into your life.
