I received a copy of It’s Not Me, It’s You by Mhairi McFarlane in exchange for an honest review.
Delia Moss’ life was turned upside down when she discovered her boyfriend was sleeping with someone else. Absolutely shocked she thought she was to blame, but they’ve been together for so long and they loved each other didn’t they? She actually proposed to him, thinking they were so solid and they were perfect for each other!! In an attempt to give herself some time to figure things out, she moves to London for an extended visit to her best friend. Delia finds a job, and slowly starts building a life for herself that doesn’t revolve around Paul and slowly starts picking up the pieces of her shattered heart and finds herself in a most unlikely pickle with her new boss. Added to that complications abound when a reporter starts to seemingly turn up everywhere he’s not wanted. This was a long book but I was hooked from the get-go and it was so worth it. Delia was suitably a very confused character, and what can I say but I’ve lived a piece of Delia’s life to some degree, so to me, and maybe lots of others, this book would be very relatable, the author does a great job of painting a very vivid picture of the emotions and thoughts that anyone on the receiving end of infidelity would face. The most unlikely character slowly became my favorite, maybe sometimes more than Delia, and how could anyone not. This is my first read from Mhairi McFarlane and it definitely won’t be my last, I like her style
