By Owen Nicholls

A cinema buff, Nick always fancied himself the Tom Hanks of his own romantic comedy. For four blissful years, things are perfect with Ellie until she leaves. Peppered with references to beloved movies, this novel explores how even a hopeless romantic can learn that in real life, love isn’t, shouldn’t be like what we see in the movies.
