Nobody expects Audrey and Harry to fall in love as hard and fast as they do. But that doesn't mean things are easy. Because real love isn't like the movies...
The greatest love story ever told doesn't feature kissing in the snow or racing to airports. It features pain and confusion and hope and wonder and a ban on cheesy clichés. Oh, and zombies...
If you lurrrve romance but are a little less keen on the Hollywood clichés then this is a book for you, and chatting about what inspired the story, Holly says: “I wrote this book for every girl who's watched romance movies - where the boys are all as sexy as Harry Styles, are all willing to change their bad ways just for you, who climb through your bedroom window and then take you out and kiss you in the rain - and thought 'literally nothing like that happens to me ever.'
"It's about a girl called Audrey who takes a job at a local independent cinema to escape her family dramas, where she meets Harry. She thinks it could be the start of a truly cinematic romance, but life has other ideas.”
Is Harry every movie cliché rolled into one? And will Audrey find her happy-ever-after?
