Publisher's Summary

The book that started it all!

A vintage '90s romcom from number one best-selling author Shari Low.

1999. 

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?

Hilarious Chick Lit

Well, can you imagine having a set of different relationships all of which were almost at the marrying stage and then with one drama after another the relationships end and some in dramatic ways. Then, deciding to revisit the ex boyfriends just in case one of them was Mr Right. That’s what Carly Cooper decides to do. Some are in different countries and with the help of credit cards off she goes. Some sad but hilarious antics along her journey to Mr Right. What she discovers is that the person she eventually ends up with was not how she pictured it in her head. A great enjoyable read.

Excellent performance, shallow story.

Do people like this main character really exist? An ultra light read firmly in the fantastical realm of romance. Starts out fun but the lead comes across shallower and somewhat more repetitive by the chapter.

Lovely trip down memory lane

If wondered if you could remember what life was like before, Facebook, Google, mobile phones....

Shari takes us on a trip down memory lane with this laugh out loud rom com "What If" 


There was times I had to stop myself shouting "just Google it" 🤣🤣 


Cooper (Carly) wonder's what she'd already met the love her life, so decides to search the globe in search of her past loves, with surprising twists. 

Helen Mcalpine did an amazing job, the voices we're all completely different, considering she's Scottish, her English accents were fantastic 👏


I really enjoyed a trip down memory lane, remembering lots of things that Shari cleverly included in this fantastic novel xxxx

Crazy!!!!

This story was completely different from the usual Shari Lowe and I laughed my head off. It's of the shenanigans of Carly who has a wild idea and sticks to it!

Whilst it's not all Sunshine and rainbows for Carly, others do benefit in her wake.

Loved music references along the way. Made it fun.

Beautifully narrated as well.

If you're looking for a light read with a giggle or two this is the book.
