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...

Staff Review by Hannah Armstrong

This debut contemporary romance gave me all the warm-and-fuzzies. It centres on quirky book editor Tiffy and antisocial palliative care nurse Leon, who, despite sharing both a flat and a bed, have never actually met. They communicate solely through notes left for each other between Leon’s night shifts and Tiffy’s nine-to-five. This fresh take on the friends-to-lovers trope made for a slow burn both hilarious and heart-warming. I loved the compassion and respect involved in every step of Leon and Tiffy’s relationship, and their unique voices that shone through the dual narration. Unputdownable, and perfect for anyone needing a pick-me-up!

About the Author

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).
