Tiffy and Leon share a flat Tiffy and Leon share a bed Tiffy and Leon have never met...

Tiffy Moore needs a cheap flat, and fast. Leon Twomey works nights and needs cash. Their friends think they're crazy, but it's the perfect solution: Leon occupies the one-bed flat while Tiffy's at work in the day, and she has the run of the place the rest of the time.

But with obsessive ex-boyfriends, demanding clients at work, wrongly-imprisoned brothers and, of course, the fact that they still haven't met yet, they're about to discover that if you want the perfect home you need to throw the rulebook out the window...

Beth studied English at university before going into children's publishing. She lives as close to the countryside as she can get while still being in reach of London, and wrote her first novel, The Flatshare, on her train journey to and from work. She is now writing novels full time, and if she's not at her desk, you'll usually find her curled up somewhere with a book, a cup of tea, and several woolly jumpers (whatever the weather).

Reviews for The Flatshare

The Flatshare starts out as a sweet, funny, beautifully written romance with great dialogue and characters you'd love to share a flat with...and then, once you're hooked, it deepens and becomes so much more. It's a cheering, lovely look at friendship and love and learning to trust after heartbreak. I never wanted it to end -- Maddie Dawson * author of Matchmaking for Beginners and The Survivor's Guide to Family Happiness * Tiffy and Leon will stay in your head long after you turn the final page. This is a gorgeously written, highly original love story that will resonate with anyone who has ever experienced the questionable joys of shared living. I absolutely loved it. -- Phoebe Morgan * the number one bestselling author of The Doll House * This will be THE heart-warming summer read of 2019... I couldn't stop thinking about the characters in between reading it, and it made me smile throughout. -- Laura Jane Williams * author of Ice Cream for Breakfast * I finished The Flatshare in one sitting - it is, as promised, incredibly uplifting and joyous. I spent the last few hours with a massive smile on my face. I have fallen head over heels in love with Tiffy and Leon, and indeed with this book -- Louise O'Neill Whip-smart and joyful, an original, delightful and thoroughly engaging love story -- Rowan Coleman Deliciously funny and truly uplifting, this is a heartwarming story of friendship, love and starting over. I adored Tiffy and Leon, and you will too -- Lucy Diamond
