A hilarious rom com about falling in love, falling outof love, and finding out who you really are.
Cat’s life has hit a brick wall. Since her ex ditched her without ceremony five years ago she’s quit stand-up comedy, landed in a steady but dull job, and lives in a tiny flat with roommates she knows only as The One Who Eats All My Food and The One Who Has Really Loud Sex.
So when she bumps into old friend Harvey and sparks fly, Cat is surprised – and horrified, because Harvey is her ex’s brother, and so absolutely, 100% off-limits romantically. Even if his dimples do make her insides fizz…
When she’s offered a new job abroad, Cat is tempted to accept – and leave her depressing flat and mess of a love life behind her. But will running away from her problems really solve them?
Fans of Jenny Colgan, Marian Keyes and Mhairi McFarlane will love Keris Stainton!

The One Who’s Not The One is a hilarious, romantic book that’s best not to read in a public place as you’re guaranteed to get some funny looks from laughing out loud!
Firstly I loved all the characters in this book! They were all such wonderful creations and I enjoyed getting to know them throughout the course of the book. As such they were easy to get behind and I found myself hoping that everything would work out for them all. The main character, Cat, is an absolutely riot and someone I’d love to have as a friend.
The book does start off a bit slow but soon picks up and I found myself thoroughly absorbed in Cat’s life. The book has a realistic feel to it from the scenarios that Cat finds herself in through to the language and conversations between Cat and her friends which I could remember having similar conversations to. I loved having a fly on the wall view at all that happens and felt very involved in the story.
This is the first book I’ve read by this author and I will look forward to reading more from her in the future, especially if she does a sequel to this book as I felt very sad to leave all the characters behind.
Huge thanks to Noelle from Bookouture for inviting me onto the blog tour and to Bookouture for my copy of this book via Netgalley which I received in exchange for an honest review. If you like feel good, funny romantic comedies then you’ll love this book!
