What if your roommate is your soul mate? A joyful, quirky romantic comedy, Beth O'Leary's The Flatshare is a feel-good novel about finding love in the most unexpected of ways. Tiffy and Leon share an apartment. Tiffy and Leon have never met. After a bad breakup, Tiffy Moore needs a place to live. Fast. And cheap. But the apartments in her budget have her wondering if astonishingly colored mold on the walls counts as art. Desperation makes her open minded, so she answers an ad for a flatshare. Leon, a night shift worker, will take the apartment during the day, and Tiffy can have it nights and weekends. He'll only ever be there when she's at the office. In fact, they'll never even have to meet. Tiffy and Leon start writing each other notes - first about what day is garbage day, and politely establishing what leftovers are up for grabs, and the evergreen question of whether the toilet seat should stay up or down. Even though they are opposites, they soon become friends. And then maybe more. But falling in love with your roommate is probably a terrible idea...especially if you've never met.… (mais)

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

When Tiffy and her boyfriend break up and she has to move out, she needs somewhere to go on short notice that she can afford. She answers an ad for a flatshare. Leon, who works nights as a hospice nurse, wants to share his flat with someone who works during the day. It’s the perfect arrangement – Tiffy will work while Leon sleeps and he will work while she sleeps. They never even have to meet. In fact, Leon’s girlfriend prefers it that way, which is why she agrees to make all of the arrangements with Tiffy on Leon’s behalf.

Tiffy and Leon communicate with each other through Post-It notes. Their notes are short and sweet at first – don’t forget to take the trash out, help yourself to the brownies I made, that sort of thing. But as the arrangement goes on, the notes become more and more personal. The Flatshare is a romantic comedy so I’ll bet you can guess what happens next!

The Flatshare alternates between Tiffy and Leon’s first-person narration. The author gave each of them such a unique voice that there isn’t really a need for the chapter headers indicating who is narrating. I love Leon. His clipped, droll way of speaking and note-writing was endearing. Tiffy was fun but she was similar to most female leads in British rom-coms – slightly daffy and unable to fully function without relying on her small friend group every step of the way. I would have liked for her to be a little less needy.

The Flatshare was one of my book club’s January pick. There was a surprising amount of discussion to be had. Probably because there is some substance in this book in addition to the rom-commyness. Leon and Tiffy have some serious stuff going on in their lives apart from all of the note writing. It’s got a good balance of humor and pathos. Recommended. ( )

The absolute perfect, sweetest romance. English women know how to do it right. ( )

Listened to this on audiobook whilst painting a bathroom... Fine to listen to for something uncomplicated, but wasn't super bowled over by the plot. I mean, the outcome was fairly predictable even from the blurb. There were some twists and turns along the way, but felt all a bit formulaic again.
EDIT: I've just seen that the cover says "The new JoJo Moyes". Probs wouldn't have bothered if I'd seen that ( )

Enjoyed this. It was the pick-me-up I craved. Tiffy is a marvellous character and Leon is too. ( )
