‘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 country 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.
Fan bloody tastic! What a funny, warming and enjoyable book Miss Wrong and Mr Right is. I tore through this book with a big smile on my face, and regular chuckles. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
Natalie escaped to London after leaving her fiancé at the altar, and we meet her a number of years later where she has established a career and a life for herself. Things have definitely moved on. Until everyone starts crashing back in to her.
Her Gran is just fabulous. She is seriously funny. Turning up unexpectedly and announcing she is going to stay with Natalie she provides many funny, as well as sweet moments.
And of course, as with any good book in this genre we need some men!! Enter Ryan who Natalie and her theatre have managed to sign as a crowd pulling attraction for their forthcoming show. American, brash, and mollycoddled by those around him. Not forgetting her ex-fiance Jamie who, uh oh, by chance appears on the scene with a rival show just over the way from Natalie’s theatre. Could a star like Ryan ever notice Natalie, and how will she and Jamie cope with coming face to face together again after all these years?
I promise you that this book will raise your mood, make you smile, and leave you almost skipping along on a cloud of happiness by the time you finish it.
I came across Robert Bryndza at the start of the year as a thriller writer. I adore his Erika Foster series, and couldn’t see how an author could write such good books across more than one genre. But Robert is incredibly talented and has has smashed it! I wonder if there is anything Robert cant write?!
Packed with laughs, sentimentality, shenanigans, and flirtation this book is perfect. I have been in a reading slump this year and have avoided books like this, sticking with dark themes, but boy oh boy has this book given me my reading mojo back. I loved it and devoured it within a day!
I will leave you with one word – Namaste! A word that from now on will leave me laughing everytime I hear it. Why? Go on, read Miss Wrong and Mr Right and find out for yourself – I guarantee you will find it hilarious!
