Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Fun! A smart and funny read! I would definitely recommend it. It's lighthearted without being cheezy and is a guaranteed laugh.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't Put it Down! I was shocked at how much I absolutely love this book. I picked this up for a read over the summer and finished it in mere days instead. It's one you cannot put down! Not your typical romcom, wasn't all that predictable and had so many unusual elements that kept you wanting more. I normally don't like or find female leads very relate-able but I fell in love with Delia. You really believed her character and went on this journey with her. You were proud of her, sad for her, happy for her and you laughed with her. No, I definitely laughed out loud while read this book. The characters were truly well written. I fell in love as Delia did. Kept me guessing right until the end. And I love the end. Truly great read, sad when it was over. hoping other Mhairi McFlarlane books compare! Also, when can this be made in to a movie?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was a great read! I loved this book. I couldn't put it down as I wanted to find out what happened. The main character, Delia, is just amazing, and I laughed out loud quite a few times. The heart-wrenching moments were expertly written and they made me cry. It is definitely worth the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun Read! I'm not in to "romance" novels, per se. I usually run the other way as soon as I see boy meets girl on the back cover. However even the write up on the back made me lol - a boyfriend sends a text about his girlfriend, to his girlfriend, in error. Oops! I'm a slow reader, however I read the 500 + pages in just a couple of days. I looked forward to reading it, and stayed up late. The author writes such appealing characters, makes you want to laugh with them and at them, makes you cringe for them, and even cry with them. I highly recommend this book, and am now investigating the purchase of the other two novels by Mhairi McFarlane.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beach bag worthy 4.5/5 Do you ever feel the need for a read that will simply entertain and let you escape for a bit? I have lately - and Mhairi McFarlane's novel, It's Not Me, It's You was the perfect prescription! Delia Moss has been with her boyfriend Paul for ten years. She decides to surprise him on their anniversary with a wedding proposal. Paul's reaction isn't quite what she hoped for. And the misdirected text sent to Delia explains it all - Paul is having an affair. But, he says it was only a fling - it's Delia he loves. Uh, huh. Delia leaves and heads to London to sort out life with her bestie. Delia was such a wonderful character! I liked her right from the start and was cheering for her every step of the way - even through the few missteps she takes. She's absolutely the kind of friend you'd love to have. (And I liked her fashion style!) McFarlane has added all the right elements for a great chick lit read - love lost and found - more than once. An endearing, flighty friend, a villainous boss, obstacles thrown up and obstacles overcome. And of course - a happy ending. McFarlane adds to the usual mix of chick lit elements with a few different plot devices and storylines that I enjoyed. Delia has an interest in graphic novels - her Fox character and the accompanying line drawings were a fun addition that paralleled Delia's life story. An online supporting character - "Peshwari Naan" - was also different as well. The one bit I didn't like was Delia going along with the last few villainous boss schemes - I would have cried 'whoa' a bit sooner. That being said, Delia does do a lot of soul searching and self realization before the end pages. Kudos to McFarlane for the ending - she had me wondering..... McFarlane is a clever writer. There are many humourous bits that had me laughing out loud. As well, there are more than a few truths tucked in that might have you nodding your head in agreement. The story never lagged for me. At 550+ delightful pages, it's great summer chunkster reading and deserves first dibs on your beach bag! I'll be looking up her McFarlane's backlist titles.
