One Night at the Jacaranda

One man dying of cancer. One struggling journalist. A group of single Londoners. One night that changes everything...

The trouble with speed dating is that three minutes can last a lifetime, and ever since he was diagnosed, Sanjay doesn’t have a lifetime to waste.

For one booze and hope-fuelled night, the lives of a group of 30-somethings criss-cross. As well as Sanjay, lawyer Laure, divorced doctor Geoff, beleaguered mother-of-four Karen and traumatised ex-con Dan all face each other across the Jacaranda’s tables in their quest for love, solace or amazing sex.

Undercover journalist Harriet is after a by-line, not a boyfriend. She’s a struggling freelance with a live-in lover, who unexpectedly has to choose between the comfortable life she knows and a bumpy road that could lead to happiness.

As they each discover in turn, relationships aren't just about finding someone special. They're about finding yourself.

"A blinder of a tale" – The Sun.

“A gripping story. At times dark, at times laugh out loud funny, this snapshot of dating in London stays with you long after the final page” – Martel Maxwell, author of Scandalous.

“The dialogue is pitch-perfect, the sex scenes amongst the best I’ve ever read” – Liza Perrat, Bookmuse.

“Sassy and classy in equal measures. A must” – Dr Pixie McKenna, media doctor and presenter on Channel 4’s Embarrassing Bodies.

“Contemporary fiction for intelligent grown-ups. The characters are real, the medical details are spot on, and the sex scenes are utterly believable – which doesn’t often happen in novels. An absolute joy" – Christine Webber, author and psychotherapist.
