Tiffy and Leon share an apartment. Tiffy and Leon have never met.
After a bad breakup, Tiffy Moore needs a place to live. Fast. And cheap. But the apartments in her budget have her wondering if astonishingly colored mold on the walls counts as art.
Desperation makes her open minded, so she answers an ad for a flatshare. Leon, a night shift worker, will take the apartment during the day, and Tiffy can have it nights and weekends. He’ll only ever be there when she’s at the office. In fact, they’ll never even have to meet.
Tiffy and Leon start writing each other notes – first about what day is garbage day, and politely establishing what leftovers are up for grabs, and the evergreen question of whether the toilet seat should stay up or down. Even though they are opposites, they soon become friends. And then maybe more.
But falling in love with your roommate is probably a terrible idea…especially if you’ve never met.
What if your roommate is your soul mate? A joyful, quirky romantic comedy, Beth O’Leary’sThe Flatshareis a feel-good novel about finding love in the most unexpected of ways.
As soon as I read thedescription of thisI knew I had to read it, I thought it had such an adorable and unique premise, Imean can you even imaginesharing a bed with someone you’ve never actually laid eyes on?! A littlestrange for sure, but adorably quirky and utterly charming as well!
This is told in alternating perspectives so one chapter you hear from Tiffy and the next it’sLeon’s turn and Iespecially love hearing from both sides in a romance. It’s always so funny to see how things are easilyinterpretedthe wrong way in the beginnings of a newrelationship and there was plentyof that here. Both Tiffy and Leonwere equallyendearing on their own but whentheyfinally get together it was even more magical and sweet. Besides those two charmers there was a supporting cast of characters that was just as lovely and fun, a really entertaining and well rounded group.
If you’re an audiobook fan that maybe you can relateto this, you listen to a book that’s great on it’s own but you just know that the fantasticnarration raises the bar and that’sexactly what happened here. Both narrators were outstanding and they reallybrought the story to life. A little added bonus that I enjoyed was a Q & A between the author and Carrie Hope Fletcher, it was SO fun and added some additional insights as well. Overall this is an idealsummer read, I’msurethis is great in printform but the audio really took things to the next level!
