“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about.  However, as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

Mad About You by Mhairi McFarlane

Mad About You

by Mhairi McFarlane
Adult Fiction – Romance – Contemporary
August 9th 2022

International bestseller Mhairi McFarlane delivers a sharp, emotional new novel about a woman who calls off her engagement to “the perfect man” and moves in with a charming stranger who makes her question everything about her life, her past, and the secrets she’s kept for far too long…

Harriet Hatley is the most in-demand wedding photographer in town, but she doesn’t believe in romance, loathes the idea of marriage, and thinks chocolate fountains are an abomination. Which is why, when her long-time partner proposes, she panics. Suddenly Harriet is single… and living down the hall from her ex. She needs a new apartment, like, yesterday.

Enter Cal Clarke, a hopeless romantic who just experienced his own wedding-related disaster. Harriet and Cal are like chalk and cheese, but as they go from strangers to roommates to friends, it becomes clear they’re both running from something. When Harriet’s most heavily guarded secret comes to light, her world implodes. And Cal, with his witty humor and gentle advice, is a surprising source of calm at the center of the storm.

With her career, friendships, and reputation on the line, Harriet must finally face her past in order to take control of her future. Because if she’s willing to stop playing it safe and risk everything to share her truth, real love and happiness may be waiting on the other side…

Mhairi McFarlane books have a tendency to pack quite an emotional punch, but also make me fall in love with the characters and romances in them, so I am so eager to fall for her next book!

  1. Wow! I love that premise!

    1. It’s definitely a fun twist 🙂

  2. I’ve been wanting to read Mhairi McFarlane for a while and just haven’t yet. I like too that some of her books are named after songs or movies (Don’t You Forget About Me, Who’s That Girl) unless that’s just coincidental lol.

    1. Haha yes, now that you mention it, she does have a lot of books that are also song titles 🙂

    I haven’t read a book by this author yet but I’m loving the premise of this one. I love that Cal is a hopeless romantic and that Harriet is not.

    1. Yes, that’s such a fun twist to the stereotype!

  4. I think it’s pretty rare that the woman is the one who doesn’t believe in romance, so I like that aspect!

    1. So true, I love that switch!
