About the book:
Three women who seemingly have nothing in common find that they’re involved with the same man in this smart new rom-com by Beth O’Leary, bestselling author of The Flatshare.
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.
Once they’ve each forgiven him for standing them up, they are all in serious danger of falling in love with a man who may have not just one or two but three women on the go….
Is there more to him than meets the eye? Where was he on Valentine’s Day? And will they each untangle the truth before they all get their hearts broken?
The No-Show by Beth O’Leary is a women’s fiction or chicklit title that does have some romance and humor. The story in The No-Show is one that is told by changing the point of view between the women in the story.
Siobhan, Miranda and Jane were all three stood up for their special Valentine’s Day dates. The three women each thought that their relationship was special and they’d met the one. The problem though was that one in each of their lives was the same man, Joseph Carter.
Picking up The No-Show by Beth O’Leary I went into the story expecting to find one thing after reading the blurb but finding something that I enjoyed so much more instead. Perhaps that is due to the surprise of what I found while reading but if it is I will not say much more so others will find the same but I will say it kept me completely engaged and wanting more. I will say this one did have humor, romance, suspicion and some lies all wrapped together and when finishing it made me want to read this author again.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
