What to expect

Brought to you by Penguin.

There’s an art to choosing men, but Thea’s just discovering it. A wonderfully romantic novel from the No. 1 Sunday Times bestselling author of Recipe for Love, A French Affair and The Perfect Match.

Leaving behind a house full of students she looks after, Thea throws caution to the wind and takes off to Ireland with Rory, a charming artist.

But Thea's old life isn't so easily cut off. The arrival of Molly, her bossy friend, demanding to see Rory's stunning paintings (and to find out what Thea is up to) is bad enough, but why did she have to bring Petal, Thea's most annoying lodger, along for the ride?

And worst of all, Petal is accompanied by her uncle, the enigmatic Ben, a man Thea has sworn never to like.

The timing is terrible and even more alarming is that the more Rory pursues Thea, the more maddeningly attractive she finds Ben...
