Siobhan is a quick-tempered life coach with way too much on her plate. Miranda is a tree surgeon used to being treated as just one of the guys on the job. Jane is a soft-spoken volunteer for the local charity shop with zero sense of self-worth.
These three women are strangers who have only one thing in common: They’ve all been stood up on the same day, the very worst day to be stood up–Valentine’s Day. And, unbeknownst to them, they’ve all been stood up by the same man.
In The No-Show, Beth O’Leary weaves a story between the three jilted women and the one complicated man who connects them.
I’m not usually one to enjoy my hero being in love with multiple heroines, but Beth O’Leary tells their story in such a convincing way that you inevitably end up rooting for them all.
Then, just when you can’t figure out how she will ever pull off the requisite HEA, she hits you with a twist that you never saw coming.
This is a confounding, heartbreaking, romantic, and achingly sweet story that manages to provide redemption for every character while never turning them into caricatures.
The No-Show by Beth O’Leary releases on April 12th.
Heidi is currently obsessed with watching people make bad decisions on TV, being a coastal elite, artificially avoiding any sign of aging, reading feminist romance novels, and getting the biggest laugh at her own expense. She has a husband, 3 kids, a dog and anxiety.
