'Properly funny, deliciously naughty, fabulously fresh and achingly honest ... I couldn't put it down.' - Alex Brown, bestselling author of The Secret of Orchard Cottage Marnie Martin's formerly perfect life is not quite going to plan. Hard-hitting newspaper journalist turned stay-at-home mum and part-time failing food columnist, Marnie is wondering when her life went so wrong. While her husband Matt's career takes off, she's left with the impossible task of pairing socks and locating Lego. His late nights at the office are turning into late nights who knows where else and they haven't had a proper conversation in weeks, sex in months, or a full night's sleep in years. On the brink of losing everything when a fantasy about movie star Maddox Wolfe leads to a missed deadline and a disastrous case of food poisoning, Marnie becomes Mrs Make Believe: anonymous blogger, secret spiller, and voice of imperfect mums everywhere. However, Marnie Martin could never have imagined that her movie star daydream would walk off the screen and into her reality, turning her already muddled world totally on its head. Will Marnie find happiness in the arms of the (literal) man of her dreams? Or will she find that true love is just make believe? Mr Make Believe is a laugh out loud romantic comedy that will have you glued to your sofa. Journalist turned author, Beezy Marsh, is perfect for fans of Helen Fielding's Bridget Jones, Tracy Bloom and The Bad Mother's Diary. Reviews "A fun read that 'imperfect mums' everywhere will adore." - The Sun "compulsively readable and entertaining" - Daily Mail "A funny, sexy, clever book which brilliantly reflects the chaos of motherhood and marriage, and kept me engrossed to the end." - Alison McGarragh-Murphy, Editor of The Motherload "Super cute, touching, honest, relatable." - NetGalley Reviewer "Superbly funny.

It was the toothpaste smeared around the sink that broke my marriage. As I rubbed it away AGAIN, I was reminded of everything else I’ve put up with these twenty-five years. My husband’s obsession with his pension, his ability to charm me into every single one of his ideas, never being taken on a romantic date, let alone ravished on the patio (like the woman who lives next door)… small things, but the realisation was huge. Just when Lucy Jones thinks her marriage is about to screech to a halt over toothpaste, her husband, Leo, announces he wants to move to tumbledown (clapped-out) Rose Cottage, and Lucy knows she’ll be the one managing the renovations. Then along comes gorgeous builder Will, ten years younger and the only person actually listening to Lucy. His twinkly eyes and blowtorch smile are causing Lucy to break out in a hot sweat – but is it love, lust or simply dodgy hormones that are causing her heart to flutter? Lucy loves her husband, but everyone knows that little things build up. And then they explode. Can Lucy keep it together, or will there be one last straw she might not be able to get over? A laugh-out-loud romp with an ending that will make you gasp! Perfect for fans of Tracy Bloom, Sophie Kinsella and Dawn French.

"--Publisher's description.
In this charming, sexy, and "laugh-out-loud" (USA Today) funny romantic comedy, an online dating ghostwriter's life gets hilariously complicated when she recognizes one of her clients' matches--her ex!--and finds herself forced to flirt with him again, on someone else's behalf... We switch. I bait. Let me help you snag a date. All through college, Blanche Carter was known as the love doctor in her sorority. Now she's parlayed her talent into a unique consulting business: she runs the online dating profiles of Washington D.C.'s most eligible women. Armed with a battalion of rules, Blanche expertly helps her clients optimize their profiles and ace that first date. But although she'll happily message handsome strangers (and fend off dick pics) for other ladies, Blanche's most important rule is the one she has for herself: no relationships. She's seen too much heartbreak to believe in real love anymore. When a former fling pops up among the matches for one of her favorite clients, Blanche gamely messages him on her behalf. Blanche is definitely over him, and this is how she'll prove it. But if she doesn't watch out, Blanche might end up not only screwing over a client--and possibly tanking her entire business--but breaking her rule about love as well . . . Ricki Schultz's trademark irreverent humor and wry insight into the absurdities of modern dating are both outrageously funny and genuinely moving in her unforgettable new novel. "A wry, audacious romance that is perfect for our contemporary moment...[with] sparkling, irreverent banter that is so good you might be tempted to steal it for your own online dating one-liners."--- Entertainment Weekly "Funny, sexy and unexpectedly touching...An often-hilarious and surprisingly endearing read, perfect for beach season!" --- RT Book Reviews "Romantic and funny...a great summer read." --- BookTrib "Ricki Schultz's relatable novel will have readers LOLing."--- US Weekly on Mr. Right-Swipe "A brilliantly funny debut novel about a 21st century girl searching for her happily ever after." --- Bustle on Mr. Right-Swipe "Breezy, brazen...a fun beach read." --- Seattle Times on Mr. Right-Swipe "This book gave me my absolute favorite feeling: laughing out loud alone in a room, chased immediately by the swoons."--- Christina Lauren on Mr. Right-Swipe
