Mismatched in Manhattan

Mismatched in Manhattan

A sweet, genuinely funny, banter-filled delight of a rom-com. I absolutely loved this modern day You’ve Got Mail Kerry Winfrey, author of Waiting for Tom Hanks

Love can happen when you least expect it . . .

Dumped by his fiancée, Miles is reduced to couch-surfing across Manhattan and using a local café as his office. Also, he no longer believes in love – not exactly a good look in his line of work.

Zoey’s eccentric L.A. boss sent her to New York to ‘grow’. But beneath her chill Cali exterior, Zoey’s terrified to venture beyond the café across the street.

Miles and Zoey have absolutely nothing in common. The only thing they share is their daily battle for the café’s day-old biscotti. They don’t know they’re both ghost-writing ‘authentic’ profiles for rival online dating services. Until they meet online, pretending to be other people . . .

As their clients head for dating disaster, Miles and Zoey spend their virtual time falling for one another, but will their online connection turn into a perfect match when they realise who they are IRL?

The perfect love letter to Nora Ephron, Carrie Fisher and all the wonderful rom-coms that act as a pick-me-up when we most need it.

A sweet, genuinely funny, banter-filled delight of a rom-com. I absolutely loved this modern day You've Got Mail
Kerry Winfrey, author of <i>Waiting for Tom Hanks</i>
Skilton, the pseudonym of collaborators Sarvenaz Tash and Sarah Skilton, puts a multicultural millennial spin on You've Got Mail in this laugh-out-loud romance . . . Skilton delivers solid laughs - Zoey's former boss, a Carrie Fisher-esque actor, and her emotional support ferret especially steal the show - and a cute central couple. Rom-com fans will find this one well worth their time
Publishers Weekly
Cyrano de Bergerac meets classic rom-com banter in this contemporary romp about the highs and lows of modern dating . . . For those feeling the lack of romantic comedies on the screen, this book will undoubtedly scratch that itch with its excellent banter, secret personas, and slow-burn attraction between a hero and heroine vying for a table big enough to put down their laptops . . . An energetic romance that would make Nora Ephron proud
Kirkus Reviews
This tale of two Cyranos puts a sweet and funny spin on dating . . . Rom-com lovers will enjoy watching this pair of matchmakers find their app-ily ever after
