The No- Show by Beth O’Leary

A huge thank you to Ella at Quercus for my copy of this book.

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.

The No-Show is the brilliantly funny, heart-breaking and joyful new novel from Beth O’Leary 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.

My Bookish Thoughts

Wow!! Just wow, Beth O’Leary has done it again. I have loved this book, it’s quite possibly my favourite of Beth’s books yet. I didn’t think any would beat the Flat Share but this book has stolen my heart.

This is filled with a mixture of characters. I have loved Siobhan from the very beginning. She’s just utterly brilliant. Alongside her, we have Miranda and Jane who are equally as fabulous. Each of our female protagonists have interactions with the lovely Joseph Carter which is where our story unfolds.

This is brilliantly written and given me all the feels. O’Leary is just absolutely fantastic and has a real talent for stealing your heart as you read her books. This is a book that has transported me, I’ve been completely lost in the pages and absorbed by what has been going on.

I just don’t think you can go wrong with Beth’s books. They just instantly improve your mood and make you happy. This is definitely my favourite yet and I’m in awe of Beth and how wonderful her books are.

The No Show has some twists but is completely realistic. The characters are likeable and relatable. This is an authentic and emotional read which has made me cry but I’ve loved every second of this gorgeous book.

This is just completely wonderful and must be read by everyone. I have loved every second of this book and highly recommend.
