My Great Ex-Scape by Portia MacIntosh


What if your future was somewhere in your past?

Rosie Jones has been dumped by every boyfriend she’s ever had - most recently by Dinosaur Dave, live on TV, during the ‘phone-a-friend’ segment of a quiz show. After the footage goes viral Rosie receives a bunch of flowers with a message:

I love you, I should have never let you go, I want you back x

But who sent them?

At a loose end and with £50,000 prize money in her back pocket, Rosie decides to take a trip down memory lane, visiting each of her ex-boyfriends to see not just if they are the one who sent the flowers but if they are the one.

Her journey takes her back to the house she grew up in and on a transatlantic cruise to New York, but can Rosie figure out which ex-boyfriend is the love of her life, or should the past stay in the past?

Rosie lurches from one catastrophe to another in a hilarious series of events, some of which are of her own making and some of which are sheer bad luck.

I loved the cruise angle too, but I really don't fancy going on one after reading this!

A fun, light read, this story is pure ex-scapism (see what I did there?) and perfect for taking you out of yourself for a few hours.

About the Author

After years working as a music journalist, Portia decided it was time to use her powers for good and started writing novels instead.

Bestseller Portia writes hilarious romcoms, drawing on her real life experiences to show what it's really like being a woman today - especially one who doesn't quite have it together yet.
