The new novel from the bestselling author of You Had Me At Hello.
Anna Alessi – history expert, possessor of a lot of hair and an occasionally filthy mouth – seeks nice man for intelligent conversation and Mills & Boon moments.
Despite the oddballs that keep turning up on her dates, Anna couldn’t be happier. As a 30-something with a job she loves, life has turned out better than she dared dream. However, things weren’t always this way, and her years spent as the ‘Italian Galleon’ of an East London comprehensive are ones she’d rather forget.
So when James Fraser – the architect of Anna’s final humiliation at school – walks back into her life, her world is turned upside down. But James seems a changed man. Polite. Mature. Funny, even. People can change, right? So why does Anna feel like she’s a fool to trust him?
Hilarious and poignant, ‘Here’s Looking At You’ will have you laughing one minute and crying the next. The new must-read novel from #1 bestseller Mhairi McFarlane.

Insightful and hilarious
Mhairi Mcfarlane is a fantastic author, this is the third book I've read of hers and it's honestly been (as overused as the phrase is) joy to read. She's so insightful I often find myself highlighting sentences every page or so because I relate to what she's saying- she has a real gift for putting things into words. I've read books of a the same genre and theme before but I can honestly say whilst I have enjoyed others as quick reads, Mhairi's make for actually interesting and gripping reading. I can't think of other books that have reviews that say 'laugh out loud' which I have then read and actually laughed out loud. She's so sharp and witty and really knows how to create an interesting storyline. There's always so much more depth to her books that the iBooks blurbs let on and I think it's a brilliant undersell. Such a fantastic writer. I cannot wait for her to publish more!
Here's looking at you
So fantastically brilliant I don't know where to start!
I fell in love with the protagonist, she has the perfect mix of strength and vulnerability that makes me all-consumed by a book to the point where I cannot complete any other tasks! Grab a drink and settle in for the duration because I assure you, you won't be able to put it down!
I'm not one to cry at much but seriously this book got me. Even if you were not bullied at school this book breaks your heart.
A fabulous read. Thank you.
