Editorial Reviews


"I recommend this book to anyone looking for a clean, feel good romance with humor." - Amazon Reviewer

From the Author

If you enjoyed this book, you may want to check out my other romantic comedy novel:
Twenty Wedding Presents
When Edgar meets the beautiful Verity at a mysterious castle wedding venue, he thinks the search for his soulmate is over. 
But when he returns for a wedding a few days later, he is horrified to discover that Verity has no memory of him. Not even a vague recollection. 
He's been told he's quite a forgettable person, but this is ridiculous. Does Verity have the memory capacity of a goldfish? Or could it have something to do with the strange occurrences at the castle? 
Over the course of twenty weddings, Edgar must get to the bottom of the mystery or he will lose his dream girl forever.

The author has done a great job of showing us the thoughts and emotions as this young man falls in love with a girl, but soon comes to realize that he does not stand a chance of becoming her boyfriend. All the misunderstandings along with his geeky ways pave the way for their relationship to develop as a friendship but he longs for more. He is a very lovable character and I kept smiling throughout this book. I recommend this book to anyone looking for a clean, feel good romance with humour.

Well-written and humorous story of love and misapprehension. This romance from a male perspective is refreshing. I'm looking forward to the next novel from Nathan Bamford.
