Sally Thorne's THE HATING GAME meets Netflix's SET IT UP in this perfect debut romcom from Tash Skilton

'A sweet, genuinely funny, banter-filled delight of a rom-com. I absolutely loved this modern day You've Got Mail' Kerry Winfrey, author of Waiting for TOM HANKS

Leave it to the experts - to break all the rules.

Online Dating Ghostwriting Rules to Live by

Dumped by his fiancee, not only is Miles couch-surfing across New York City, but downsizing has forced him to set up shop at a cafe. Also, he no longer believes in love. Not a good look in his line of work . . .

Do not present a 'perfect' image. No one will trust it. Nor should they.

Zoey's eccentric L.A. boss sent her packing to New York to 'grow'. But beneath her chill Cali demeanor, Zoey's terrified to venture beyond the cafe across the street . . .

Think of your quirks - such as cosplaying B-movies from the 1980s - as a 'Future Honesty'. Save these as a reward only for those who prove worthy.

The only thing Miles and Zoey share is their daily battle for Cafe Crudite's last day-old biscotti. They don't know they're both ghostwriting 'authentic' client profiles for rival online dating services. Nope, they have absolutely nothing in common. . . . Until they meet anonymously online, texting on the clock . . .

Never remind the client you're their Cyrano. Once you've attracted a good match, let the client take over ASAP.

Soon, with their clients headed for dating disaster, both Miles and Zoey's jobs are at stake. And once they find out their lines have crossed, will their love connection be the real thing - or vanish into the ether?

The perfect love letter to Nora Ephron, Carrie Fisher and all the wonderful rom-coms that act as a pick-me-up when we most need it.

An energetic romance that would make Nora Ephron proud - Kirkus Reviews

  • Skilton, the pseudonym of collaborators Sarvenaz Tash and Sarah Skilton, puts a multicultural millennial spin on You've Got Mail in this laugh-out-loud romance . . .
