What to expect

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable, audiobook edition of The One That Got Away by Melissa Pimentel, read by Suzanne Pirret and Max Bennett.

Ruby and Ethan were perfect for each other. Until the day they suddenly weren't.

Ten years later, Ruby's single, having spent the last decade focusing on her demanding career and hectic life in Manhattan. There's barely time for a trip to England for her little sister's wedding. And there's certainly not time to think about seeing Ethan there for the first time in years.

But as the family frantically prepare for the big day, Ruby can't help but wonder if she made the right choice all those years ago? Because there's nothing like a wedding for stirring up the past . . .

Witty, frank and candid, this book takes the reader on a hilarious tour through the world of modern dating


Frank, refreshing...such a satisfying read


Great fun - a gripping read and very touching

Marian Keyes

Laugh-out-loud funny


A clever premise, wittily delivered in upbeat, wisecracking style. Lauren's encounters provide a colourful snapshot of modern men and dating mores, while her breezy promiscuity makes Bridget Jones look positively nun-like. All good, dirty fun - and there's a great twist to how she gets her guy in the end. American Pimentel writes lyrically of her adopted city, and her insights into the British are as spot-on as they are hilarious
