Sarra Manning is the queen of London-set romance. London, With Love is the sort of book that sweeps you off your feet and wins your heart with laughter, tears and the whole cavalcade of city life. Utterly romantic, totally recognisable and with as much spirit as the city itself, this is an unforgettable love story
Louise O'Neill
Reading London, with Love reminded me why Sarra Manning is one of my favourite writers. It's wonderful - romantic, sexy, moving, and impossible to put down.
Marian Keyes
This is already one of my books of the year! . . . A VERY special book - a decades-long 'near miss' love story, it gave me One Day vibes. It's GORGEOUS, real, believable and BEAUTIFUL
Kate Riordan
Brimful of longing, tenderness and the pain of missed chances, this book could soften the stoniest heart

London, With Love is just all kinds of glorious, one minute moving me to tears, the next making me snort with laughter. I'm going to be pressing it into the hands of all my friends and family
Claire McGlasson
Immersive, razor sharp and full of tenderness. Manning explores love in many forms - not least her obvious affection for the city in which this romance unfolds. But it is her witty rendering of life in the 90s that I really fell for! I was transported!
Alex Brown
A book to treasure - brilliantly crafted with characters that feel like lifelong friends. Beautiful, romantic, real, poignant, nostalgic and completely compelling. I love this book with all my heart.
Katy Birchall
Sarra Manning's stunning, beautifully written book is not just a love letter to London, but a love letter to what really matters in life: each other. Funny, smart and gorgeously romantic, London, With Love is the perfect read to make you smile on the rainiest of days

Lucy Vine
I absolutely, completely, entirely and wholly adored The Man of Her Dreams. I didn't think Sarra's writing could get any better . . . but she has somehow surpassed herself. It manages to be romantic, relatable and heartfelt, while also being such an compelling, intriguing story - I couldn't put it down. I'll be thinking about this special book for a long time to come, and recommending it to everyone I know.
Marian Keyes

Smart, funny, audacious, and dazzlingly romantic. The Man of Her Dreams is an utterly ingenious romcom with the breathless page-turning quality of a thriller. I could not put it down. Sarra Manning just gets better and better.
