The No-Show by Beth O’Leary

A brilliantly funny, heart-breaking and joyful new novel about dating, and waiting, and the ways love can find us.  An utterly extraordinary tearjerker of a book, this is O’Leary's most ambitious novel yet.

Three women.  Three dates.  One missing man…

8.52 a.m.  Siobhan is looking forward to her breakfast date with Joseph.  She was surprised when he suggested it – she normally sees him late at night in her hotel room.  Breakfast on Valentine’s Day surely means something… so where is he?

2.43 p.m.  Miranda’s hoping that a Valentine’s Day lunch with Carter will be the perfect way to celebrate her new job.  It’s a fresh start and a sign that her life is falling into place: she’s been dating Carter for five months now and things are getting serious.  But why hasn’t he shown up?

6.30 p.m.  Joseph Carter agreed to be Jane’s fake boyfriend at an engagement party.  They’ve not known each other long but their friendship is fast becoming the brightest part of her new life in Winchester.  Joseph promised to save Jane tonight.  But he’s not here…

Meet Joseph Carter.  That is, if you can find him.

Peer & Press Reviews

Fresh, clever and superbly plotted, The No-Show will sweep you up, break your heart and put it all back together again.  A triumph.

Mike Gayle, author of All The Lonely People

Beth O’Leary writes a brilliant, multilayered, romantic stunner with a poignant twist that you won’t see coming.  You won’t be able to put this down.

Lauren Ho, author of Last Tang Standing

This is a genius of a book!  The kind of book you want all your friends to read so that you can talk about it non-stop.  Trust me, you’ll be buzzing long after you’ve read the final page.

Lizzie Damilola Blackburn, author of Yinka, Where is Your Huzband
