'Thirty is a pacy, up-to-the-minute romp of a book that's packed with humour, friendship and romance. Most importantly, it has a real life-affirming, self-affirming message that left me with a smile on my face and a spring in my step' Sophie Ranald, author of Sorry Not Sorry

Thirty days till she turns thirty... Just thirty dates to find The One...Bella Edwards is a hot mess.
Days away from turning thirty, single, struggling to reconcile where she is with where she imagined she'd be by this point in her life, Bella has come to believe her entire future happiness is based on meeting 'The One'.
After an unfortunate encounter with a fortune teller, where it seems Bella's single fate is sealed, she hops on a plane from London to New York to seek the wisdom of her best friend who, in turn, presents Bella with a challenge: thirty dates in thirty days before Bella turns thirty.
Challenge accepted, Bella embarks on a crazy road trip across America to San Francisco, with one clear objective: to find 'The One' and prove the fortune teller wrong. What ensues is a raucous adventure of dating, love, and - most importantly - self-discovery.
Fresh, funny and witty, Thirty shines an honest, often awkward, often hilarious, but ultimately wonderfully fresh light on what it truly means to be single, when everyone else seemingly has it all.

Christina Bradley started her career as an actress, living and working in British Columbia, Canada. This was when her love for storytelling first began. It wasn't until she moved back to London some years later, that her love affair with writing, finally took hold. Single at that time and fairly new to her thirties, she began reflecting on what this 'coming of age' meant, and the process of reconciling where you are, with where you'd always imagined you'd be. Christina observed this wasn't something she was experiencing alone, it was a much larger conversation (and basically an epidemic) amongst most of her single friends - everyone seemed to be in a blind-panic about turning thirty, and still searching for The One. Thirty was written in response.
Alongside her writing, Christina is the founder of the Communication Campus, helping individuals, brands and businesses communicate their message and their stories in front of live audiences. Christina, lives by the sea and is currently writing her next novel.
