The Pre-Loved Club
'A funny, warm, wry writer' - David Nicholls, bestselling author of One Day and Sweet Sorrow
'This fabulous summer read is a gentle reminder love never gives up on anyone. A funny, charming, warm-hearted story to restore your faith in life' - Janice Hallett, bestselling author of The Appeal
Ned is in IKEA with his wife when she breaks the news that it’s over.
For Gemma, it happens on the way to get fish and chips, when she opens the glove compartment of her husband’s car to find a pair of women’s sunglasses that aren’t hers.
For both, it’s a bolt from the blue that rocks their faith in the world, relationships, and themselves. But you can’t sit around feeling sorry for yourself, especially when there are children involved, so both – for very different reasons – join a support group for single parents.
It’s fair to say they don’t exactly hit it off.
However, as Ned and Gemma know from bitter experience, life is full of surprises, and as they navigate their respective brave new worlds, it’s possible they have more in common than either might have suspected, including – but not limited to – excess emotional baggage, low self-esteem, and the ability to take something promising and well and truly screw it up . . .
A warm and witty look at the world of dating second time around, The Pre-Loved Club by Sue Teddern is for anyone who has ever dreamt of finding true love, only to realize life doesn’t necessarily work that way.
