The book that started it all! A classic retro romcom from #1 bestselling author Shari Low.
Carly Cooper is 30, single, and after coming close to saying ‘I Do’ to six different men, she’s wondering if she accidentally said ‘goodbye’ to Mr Right.
But there is a problem.
Her ex-boyfriends are scattered all over the world and Carly lives in 1999; an era before Facebook, Google, smartphones, 4G and Broadband, when it was impossible to track people down with a few clicks of a mouse.
On a mission to discover if she walked away from her ‘happy ever after’, Carly quits her job, her flat, her whole life and sets off on a quest to track down all the men she has ever loved.
Her Mr Right is out there, but can she find him?
And what if he’s moved on from the ex-girlfriend who said goodbye? A wonderful classic 20th-anniversary re-release.
I am delighted today to be joining the tour to celebrate 20 years since Shari released What If?, her debut novel.
I adore the retro vibe of this novel now. No social media or easy internet access makes this such a great adventure because after all – who hasn’t ever thought What If?
How interesting would life be if we had the ability to see what could have been if we’d taken a different choice at select moments in time? Nobody can do that but after several ‘almost’ attempts at a wedding Carly begins to wonder if she’s already let the perfect partner slip through her fingertips. She gives up everything and sets out on a journey to track down all her exes to find out if one was truly The One.
This was such an amusing and witty story as Carly embarks to answer the question that many of us have asked at somepoint in out lives. For me it was a journey to the time of my late teens and early twenties and I devoured every nostaligic moment from the music to the fashions and the buzz words around the millenium and Shari did a fabulous job of capturing this era and immportalising it in her book.
Shari writes her stories with witt and humour and combined with lovable characters it makes for an utterly charming read.
I adored everything about this book and highly recommend it.
