refreshing romance with a strong sense of setting and a charismatic cast’ Publishers Weekly on How to Love Your Neighbour

A frothy, effervescent rom-com from sparkling romance author Sophie Sullivan.

Hailey Sharp has a one-track mind:
Get her salad shop off the ground.
Do everything possible to make it a success.

With a head full of entrepreneurial ideas and a bad ex in her rear-view mirror, Hailey’s one and only focus is living life the way she wants to. No distractions.

For Wes Jansen, companionship, not passion, is the name of the game. After the pain from his parents’ angry divorce and a string of lacklustre first dates, he’d much rather find someone who he likes, but won’t love.

Following a disastrous meet cute that wasn’t even intended for them, Hailey and Wes go their separate ways. But when Wes finds Hailey to apologize for his behaviour, they strike up a friendship – and that’s all it will ever be.

Hailey doesn’t want any distractions.
Wes doesn’t want to fall in love.
What could possibly go wrong?

Praise for Sophie Sullivan!
