Love, In Theory by Elodie Cheesman, is her debut novel and revolves around the age-old decision of whether to follow your heart or your head when searching for that perfect match.
When her mother finds an article in the newspaper about ‘The Maths of Finding the Perfect Partner’ she encourages her 24-year-old, unmarried daughter, Romy, to read it.
Romy learns that she is at her ‘optimal stopping point’ at which one should select the next ‘best person’ who comes along in order to have the best chance of living happily ever after.
As a lawyer, she decides to believe in data rather than fate.
To this end, she must choose a dependable mate such as Hans, the engineer, rather than give way to desire and the less responsible James, the graphic designer.
She really must follow her head not her heart, mustn’t she?
The age old questions of finding “Mr Right” are put into a modern context. Should I or shouldn’t I take the risk of spending the rest of my life with this person? Shall I trust my instincts and dive right in or make a considered choice?
A different slant on the dating game, which takes the reader on a happy, hopeful journey along the path (or should it be through the maze?) to everlasting love.
Looking forward to more great novels from this marvellous new author.
A must-read for lovers of modern romance.
Love, In Theory is available in paperback, e-book and audiobook
