Chloe Usher has just broken up with the love of her life.

All her friends urge her to find another man before she disappears down the slippery slope to spinsterhood. After a particularly messy date and several gins, she decides that she doesn’t need an ‘other half’ to complete her and announces that she is going to marry herself. The news goes viral and, in the sober light of day, Chloe finds herself thrust firmly into the public eye to the embarrassment of her friends and family.

Planning her wedding solo takes Chloe on a bumpy journey of self-discovery, as she realises why wish away your life waiting for ‘the one’ when YOU are, in fact, the one?

Fabulous, Fun Read!    5-stars


Such a fun read! If you need some light-hearted humour in your life, don’t pass this one by!

Chloe expects to have a future with her partner Ant; what she doesn’t expect is to return from a work trip finding that things have changed between them. If it was only that, she may have coped but throw in a nutty flatmate and a bitch co-worker, and Chloe has plenty to deal with.

This is a fabulous, fun, giggly read. With plenty going on, there are bound to be some situations which every reader can identify with, and I chuckled my way through the majority of the book. So enjoyable, and definitely a book which left me with a sense of happiness and a smile on my face – and well worth googling the author, as you’ll find out that most of it is true!! Thoroughly recommended!

My thanks to publisher Orion for my copy via NetGalley. This is my honest and unbiased review.

Meet the Author



Sophie Tanner grew up in the beautiful countryside of Dorset and then moved to London to study English and Theatre. As a graduate, she worked in marketing for a few years before donning a backpack and exploring the world a little bit – mainly Africa and Central America. When she returned from her travels, she was drawn to Brighton, thanks to its relaxed, open-minded spirit and colourful beach.

She then trained and worked as a journalist and developed a career in responsible tourism. She currently works as a communications consultant at successful digital agency, Propellernet, and lives with her bumptious Labrador in a sunny little flat near the sea. Together they explore the coastline and Sussex Downs, both revelling in the opportunity to be outdoors, surrounded by nature.

Sophie is eternally curious about human behavior and has a strong interest in literature, music and theatre. Laughter is important to Sophie, she regularly does improvised comedy courses with The Maydays.

An avid reader, Sophie absolutely loves to curl up with a book. Happily, her first novel, is a cheeky, light-heartedly subversive tale about a girl who decides to marry herself. As a perfect example of life imitating art, Sophie married herself in a performance at Brighton Fringe festival during May 2015. The ceremony was well-received and aimed to encourage a cultural mind shift; empowering other people to accept and celebrate themselves.
