The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary @QuercusBooks

Book Description:

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…

My Thoughts:

I’ve heard so many good things about this book and finally now that I have read it, I can whole-heartedly agree with them!

The chapters flick between Tiffy and Leon and I loved getting to know both of them. Leon is quiet and a bit of an introvert. He is a nurse who works long hours and needs extra money to help towards solicitor’s fees for his brother Richie. Tiffy is a bit of an eccentric with her dress sense who is getting over the heartache of her ex boyfriend leaving her. Both are very different in personalities.

I have to admit I wasn’t sure how it could work, two strangers sharing a flat with one bed. It somehow does though and it was wonderful seeing how these two strangers start to get to know each other without actually meeting. The post it notes that go back and forth was super sweet and just made both of them even more endearing. Along with Tiffy and Leon, there is also a wonderful cast of characters in the form of Tiffy’s friends and Leon’s patients. These all added that extra sparkle to this lovely novel.

The Flatshare was such a gorgeous read which really warms your heart. It’s one of those stories that you gush about when telling your friends about it. Apart from a couple of unsavoury characters which you aren’t meant to like, there isn’t anything I didn’t love about this story. I loved the romance which had me grinning like a Cheshire cat as you can’t help but get swept up in it all. A fabulously uplifting story that I enjoyed immensely!
