A message had arrived from a man in south Wales.
“Jessica, I knew the minute I saw your face that it was meant to be. Do you believe in love at first sight? I’m visited by intuition that I am the man for you. Send me a long message telling me all about yourself, and I’ll reply by tonight, and we can get this thing started.”
“You’ve sent this to the wrong person,” I replied. “I’m not Jessica. I’m afraid this is the hazard of using cut-and-paste.”
“You’re the right person,” he insisted, styling it out. “I’m just not very good with names.”
Middle aged and newly single, Stella Grey embarked on a mission – to find love online. Her journey is never dull, featuring marriage proposals, invitations to Tangier, badly timed food poisoning and much younger men – but will it be successful?

‘Eye-opening and scary, I could not stop reading this’ Katie Fforde
‘Enjoyed Stella Grey’s The Heartfix. The literary equivalent of the When Harry Met Sally line: “Tell me I’ll never be out there again”’ Jojo Moyes, via Twitter
