The queen of the RomCom, Kelk returns with the story of Ros. She has spent three years working away in Washington and now that she has returned she wants to pick up her old life in London just where she left it. Unfortunately her family and friends have other ideas and they have all moved on. Mum and Dad have embraced the empty nest and rekindled their romance so Ros has been relegated to living in the garden shed. Lucy has now settled down and is expecting a baby. Sumi has a steady girlfriend and a serious career while Ros kinds herself back where she started.
Jobless and struggling to find her feet Ros gets herself a new mobile phone and downloads all of her old contacts from the cloud before sending out a mass “I’m back! This is my new number… ” text message to all her contacts. It has the desired effect and soon she is being inundated by people getting in touch. That includes Patrick, the cad her broke her heart by breaking up with her when she got the job in America. Responding to Patrick’s message is a really bad idea. It took her years to get over him. But since when did alcohol and good ideas entwine?
In Case You Missed It is a fun story about friendship and love, about growing up and realising who you are. If you’re looking for a perfect escape from 2020 you won’t go far wrong.
