Publisher's Summary

The new novel from the bestselling author of You Had Me At Hello.
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 You will have you laughing one minute and crying the next. The new must-read novel from #1 bestseller Mhairi McFarlane.

Any additional comments?

It was ok. I was really looking forward to listening to this book because the synopsis read really well. I struggled to stay focused when listening to the book and I didn't spark with the characters. It was a similar story line to my all time favourite book "you don't have to say you love me" by Sarra Manning. Maybe if I had listened to this book before my favourite one I might have enjoyed it more. I think I spent a lot of time comparing the 2 books.

It Grows On You

It took me a little bit to appreciate this book because my initial impression was that it was just fluff. Maybe it was fluff, but it was also a sweet, endearing story written with the verbal wit of Nick Spalding that's a lot of lighthearted fun. I'm still thinking he actually wrote this under a pen name. The style and tone are identical.

While the narrator is excellent, her strong accent, while adding to the humor in places, also caused me to consistently not understand some words here and there.

What began as 2 stars grew to 5. A cute, clever, little feel-good respite from the stresses of daily life.
