Summary, etc.:
Two people. One epic love story. What if? Pre-order the perfect fun and heartwarming romance from the bestselling author of Marry Me Tomorrow 'Sometimes you just need a good story with heart, and this is one of those books' Goodreads reviewer Orla is a trainee reporter with a five-year plan: work her way up the career ladder, move to London and secure a job on a big national newspaper. She doesn't want a boyfriend, he's only going to hold her back anyway. Aiden spends his life travelling the world and living in a tent. He knows his goal: to photograph animals and raise awareness of global warming and wildlife conservation. He's definitely not looking for a relationship past the odd casual hook-up! So when Orla and Aiden's lives collide, they do everything to not fall for each other – with the opposite effect. But they stick to their plans, and go their separate ways... Five years later, they meet again... If you love Mhairi McFarlane, Jo Watson and Paige Toon, you'll LOVE Carla Burgess. Readers LOVE Carla Burgess! 'A great love story and relaxing read for anyone wanting to escape for an afternoon' Goodreads reviewer 'I instantly fell in love with Orla, Aiden and their relationship. This is one of the best books I've read this year' Netgalley reviewer 'I just love Carla Burgess! I love how she writes every emotion into her stories, how I feel like I know the characters and am invested in their happy ending. Another perfect book by one of my favourite contemporary authors' Goodreads reviewer 'I absolutely adored The Five-Year Plan. From the moment we meet Aiden and Orla, I was invested. A gorgeous, romantic read and the ending left me beaming' Netgalley reviewer 'I LOVED this! A very lovely, heart-warming book' Netgalley reviewer 'If you're looking for a book to bring some light into your life, this is definitely one for you' Goodreads reviewer 'A cute feel-good second-chance romance' Goodreads reviewer

Author Notes

Carla Burgess was born in Solihull and now lives in Chester with her husband, three children, dog and bearded dragon. Her love of books was sparked when she borrowed Ghost Ship to Ganymede by Robert Swindells from her primary school library and devoured it in one night. It was just after this that she started writing her own stories and inflicting them on family and friends. She began her working life as an editor on a trade magazine where she dreamed of writing about romance instead of tubing, but still felt privileged to be working with words. She has a degree in English literature and psychology, and loves animals, the countryside and the sea. Carla’s debut novel Marry Me Tomorrow, released in 2016, became a bestseller.
