Second First Impressions by the author of TikTok phenomenon THE HATING GAME

AUTHOR: Sally Thorne

From the bestselling Australian author of The Hating Game, now a major motion picture, comes the clever, funny and unforgettable story of a muscular, tattooed man hired as an assistant to two elderly women - under the watchful eye of a beautiful young retirement home manager 'I inhaled Second First Impressions - I had to force myself to slow down because I didn't want it to end. It's a truly adorable, heart-warming, swoon-worthy love story. A book hasn't given me the warm-fuzzies like this for a very long time' BETH O'LEARY, author of The Flatshare Ruthie Midona is twenty-four (going on ninety-four) and fully committed to her job at a luxury retirement village. Keeping herself busy caring for the eccentric residents means that Ruthie can safely ignore her own life - what little there is of it. Teddy Prescott is practically allergic to a hard day's work. When he rocks up as the retirement village's newest employee, Ruthie is less than impressed. The last thing she needs is a distraction as irritating (and handsome) as this selfish rich kid. Lucky for Ruthie, her favourite pair of mischievous residents need a new assistant to torture . . . so she hands over Teddy, ready for them to send him running. Except Teddy may be about to surprise her - not just by surviving the older women's antics, but by charming Ruthie so much, she starts to remember that there's more to life than work . . . Could Teddy be far more than simply an unwelcome distraction? 'The warmest, coziest, sweetest book of the year, an absolutely perfect blend of humour and heart' EMILY HENRY, author of Beach Read 'A hilarious and cute romcom set in a retirement village with the quirkiest, most likeable heroine ever' ALLIE REYNOLDS 'After a sweet, funny and heartwarming love story, then look no further' FIONA PALMER 'The definition of a feel-good romance. This story and these characters will grow on you until Ruthie and Teddy are wrapped around your heart' Herald Sun 'An addictive romance filled with deep feeling, crackling attraction and cackling laughs . . . will have your heart squeezing and soaring from beginning to end' The Washington Post
