Tiffy and Leon share a flat
Tiffy and Leon share a bed
Tiffy and Leon have never met...
Tiffy Moore needs a cheap flat, and fast. Leon Twomey works nights and needs cash. Their friends think they're crazy, but it's the perfect solution: Leon occupies the one-bed flat while Tiffy's at work in the day, and she has the run of the place the rest of the time.
But with obsessive ex-boyfriends, demanding clients at work, wrongly-imprisoned brothers and, of course, the fact that they still haven't met yet, they're about to discover that if you want the perfect home you need to throw the rulebook out the window...

Deliciously funny and truly uplifting, this is a heartwarming story of friendship, love and starting over. I adored Tiffy and Leon, and you will too
Utterly charming. Written with care and love for her characters, O'Leary manages to conjure up a Richard Curtis rom-com that also has its feet firmly planted in real life. The concept isn't stretched beyond credibility and, above all else, it's funny and winning. A real treat - Stylist
Whip-smart and joyful, an original, delightful and thoroughly engaging love story

In the league of Bridget Jones and Marian Keyes' Walsh sister books... Fresh, funny and feel-good, The Flatshare is brilliantly written and the perfect antidote to any bad day. I loved it
The Flatshare is astoundingly good. A beautiful, hope-filled, joyful triumph of a book. I was barely able to put it down yesterday and finished late last night. What a breath of fresh air! Everyone needs to share Tiffy and Leon's bed next year.
Beth studied English at university before going into children's publishing. She lives as close to the countryside as she can get while still being in reach of London, and wrote her first novel, The Flatshare, on her train journey to and from work.
She is now writing novels full time, and if she's not at her desk, you'll usually find her curled up somewhere with a book, a cup of tea, and several woolly jumpers (whatever the weather).
