Not Exactly What I Had in Mind by Kate Brook

A frank, funny and relatable debut, perfect for fans of Beth O’Leary and Holly Bourne.

Flatmates, friends or family? It's complicated...

Hazel and Alfie have just moved in together as flatmates.  They’ve also just slept together, which was either a catastrophic mistake, or the best decision of their lives.

Before they can decide, Hazel’s sister Emily and her wife Daria arrive for a visit, setting in motion a chain of events that will turn everything upside down.

What follows will bind the four of them together, bringing joy and heartache, hope and anxiety, and reshaping their relationships in ways that none of them quite predicted.

Warm, witty, and devastatingly relatable, Not Exactly What I Had in Mind is a painfully true-to-life story about family, friends, and everything in between.

Peer & Press Reviews

Captures the intricacies of modern relationships with undeniable skill, heaps of humour and a style that fans of Sally Rooney will love.  Captivating and addictively complex, this novel is full of an unshakable tension that is a delight to get entangled in.

Ashley Hickson-Lovence, author of Your Show

A charming peek inside the messy world of modern dating, blending hard-hitting realities with frivolous fun.


A clever and insightful take on what love and family mean in the twenty-first century.

Nicola Gill, author of We Are Family
