Bestselling author Josephine Cox brings us a hilarious and entertaining tale for next Christmas…“I’m 36 years of age; handsome and fit. I’m not as tall as I’d like to be, nor am I rippling with chest-muscles. But I reckon I’m a dead ringer for Hugh Grant.”After years spent with ‘the dreaded Laura’ Ben is finally free! A new divorcee he can’t wait to get back in the game and sets about writing a list of all the things he has to do:• NOT sign up to the gym. (He’s fit enough anyway).• Smoke cigars – they’re much more sophisticated than cigarettes.• NOT contact Laura and that includes hiding in the bushes to spy on her.• Play the field!As Ben enters the world of singledom with his sidekick Dickie Manse (brains-in-his-pants), Ben finds himself on a whole new adventure and has plenty of fun along the way.
