‘A truly adorable, heart-warming, swoon-worthy love story’ Beth O’Leary The latest swoonworthy romcom from the bestselling author of TikTok sensation The Hating Game
First impressions aren’t always what they seem . . .
Ruthie Midona is twenty-four (going on ninety-four) and fully committed to her job at a luxury retirement village. Keeping herself busy caring for the eccentric residents means that Ruthie can safely ignore her own life – what little there is of it.
Teddy Prescott is practically allergic to a hard day’s work. When he rocks up as the retirement village’s newest employee, Ruthie is less than impressed. The last thing she needs is a distraction as irritating (and handsome) as this selfish rich kid. Lucky for Ruthie, her favourite pair of mischievous residents need a new assistant to torture… so she hands over Teddy, ready for them to send him running.
Except Teddy may be about to surprise her – not just by surviving the old women’s antics, but by charming Ruthie so much, she starts to remember that there’s more to life than work. And just maybe, her second first impression will lead to the love of a lifetime . . .
