After five years of marriage, they're about to have their first date . . . Do I Know You? is a joyful comedy of romance rekindled, from the authors of The Roughest Draft, Emily Wibberley and Austin Siegemund-Broka.

‘Honest to the bone, refreshing, and . . . deliciously surprising’ - Jodi Picoult, author of My Sister's Keeper

Eliza and Graham’s marriage is quietly failing. With their five-year anniversary approaching, neither of them are thrilled about the weeklong getaway they’ve been gifted. The luxury retreat prides itself on being a destination for those in love and those looking to find it - but for Eliza and Graham it’s the last place they want to be.

After a well-meaning guest mistakes Eliza and Graham as being single and introduces them at the hotel bar, they don’t correct him. Suddenly, they’re pretending to be perfect strangers and it’s unexpectedly fun. Eliza and Graham find themselves flirting like it’s their first date.

Everyone at the retreat can see the electric chemistry between Eliza and Graham’s alter egos. But as their game continutes they realize this performance could be the very thing that saves their marriage . . .

Many authors can write compellingly about falling in love . . . but it takes a deft hand (or two, in this case) to write compellingly about staying in love. Luckily, we have Wibbroka, who have crafted a novel about marriage that is honest to the bone, refreshing and — like a long-term relationship — deliciously surprising
Reading Wibberley and Siegemund-Broka’s prose is like sliding into the crisp sheets of a luxury hotel bed. Do I Know You? is such an inventive take on a ‘marriage in trouble’ story . . . By the end, I cared about the fate of Eliza and Graham’s relationship like I knew them personally.
Do I Know You? shows the pure magic of that pivotal moment when two people make the choice to fight for each other. This book is more than a story of a marriage in trouble. It’s the story of a spark rekindled and the new flames delivering all the warmth you could want in a novel. Full of humour and heart, Do I Know You? had me in my feelings!
