Forget Bridget Jones, this month’s cover reveal is the book you have been waiting for – The Heartfix is totally compulsive, painfully true and darkly comic, an unputdownable account of one woman’s search for love online.
When her husband fell in love with someone else, Stella Grey thought she’d be unhappy for the rest of her life. But then she realised that she needed to take her future in her own hands. She needed to meet someone wonderful, and find a heartfix for heartbreak. So, she joined online dating sites and embarked on a mission.
Everyone at 4th Estate is so excited about this book. Young and old, male and female, none of us have been able to put it down or talk about anything else.
And we’re not alone. Jojo Moyes calls it ‘the literary equivalent of the Harry Met Sally line: “Tell me I’ll never be out there again.”’ Katie Fforde couldn’t stop reading it and Miranda Sawyer found it ‘as gripping as a thriller’. Plum Sykes thinks it is ‘A Bridget Jones for the internet dating age … like a bathroom gossip with your best friend – stories of terrible men and terrible sex’.
Our cheeky iPhone-wielding cherub is heralding a great thing!
The Heartfix by Stella Grey will be published 22nd September 2016.
