Tiffy and Leon share a flat
Tiffy and Leon share a bed
Tiffy and Leon have never met…

Tiffy Moore needs a cheap flat, and fast. Leon Twomey works nights and needs cash. Their friends think they’re crazy, but it’s the perfect solution: Leon occupies the one-bed flat while Tiffy’s at work in the day, and she has the run of the place the rest of the time. 

But with obsessive ex-boyfriends, demanding clients at work, wrongly imprisoned brothers and, of course, the fact that they still haven’t met yet, they’re about to discover that if you want the perfect home you need to throw the rulebook out the window…


This is a brilliantly fun story.

I read it in record time, pausing only to switch on the light when it became too dark to read easily. The characters are mostly fun and friendly. The writing is witty, fun and the insights into the relationship between Leon and Tiffy – WOW just WOW!

It is a fun, quick, easy read story that captivates the reader. Highly recommended.

Introducing Beth O’Leary

Introducing Beth O’Leary
Beth studied English at university before she started working in children’s book publishing. She lives as close to the countryside as she can get while still being in reach of London, and wrote her first novel, The Flatshare, on her train journey to and from work. She is now writing novels full time, and if she’s not at her desk, you’ll usually find her curled up somewhere with a book, a cup of tea, and several woolly jumpers (whatever the weather).
