My Review: I enjoyed this book, being in my 40s myself and single, I could identify with the NYE resolution that things will be different in 12 months time. Also is a man in his mid 20s too young and when is a man too old? Kate decides its time to change her life, just having her cat to cuddle isnt enough. Her work pals Nate and Cody don’t help matters in making her feel over the hill and past it. Her friend Julie takes a lot of contol in helping Kate set up her profile. The book occasionally flips back in time and perspective. Not to forget that Julie’s brother is also a strong feature in this book. You will laugh, sigh and occasionally cringe at how dating apps come to life through their users. A recommended read.

Someone to Kiss

A Hilarious and Heartening Take on the Pitfalls of Modern Dating

As the clock strikes midnight over a disastrous New Year’s Eve and happy couples celebrate all around her, Kate makes a resolution, hastily scrawled on the back of a napkin, that next New Year’s Eve she will have found someone of her own to kiss.

But when you’re a forty-something cat-mom who’d rather binge Netflix than brave the singles scene, finding someone to kiss turns out to be harder than it sounds. Kate is totally unprepared for navigating hook-up apps, speed-dating, and sliding into somebody’s DMs.

With the end of the year rapidly approaching, Kate seems further than ever from reaching her goal. As relationships crumble around her and dark long-kept secrets spill out, could Kate’s fixation on her quest cause her to let true love slip through her fingers forever?

Someone to Kiss is a wry and witty romantic comedy, tackling serious issues with real heart. The perfect new read for fans of Beth O’Leary, Jennier Weiner and JoJo Moyes.
