‘I met him when I was twenty-three and spent fifteen years with him. How would I know he would be such an ungrateful, deceitful bastard?’
The sharp summary of Mabel Day’s current love and life situation.
A divorcee left to bring up two teenage daughters while her husband finds happiness elsewhere.
She can’t stand her job because she doesn’t like the people who work at the advertising agency, even though she owns part of it.
Her mother and brother are partners, so Mabel is constantly told off for her behaviour towards the team, and their concerns regarding her bad attitude and alcohol consumption.
The woman knows she’s not being nice but is hurting badly.
A broken heart has left her in tatters.
Is being forced to be a guinea pig for a new online dating company the agency want to win the account for the way forward? Could she meet Mr Right, or Mr Anyone, come to think of it?
Creative Director, Alex, thinks she would make the ideal candidate as she is a challenge, and very needy, on many levels.
But what and who does Mabel really want?
A funny, romantic love story about unreliable men, stolen sperm, and oranges.
