Blurb: What if your future was somewhere in your past?

Rosie Jones has been dumped by every boyfriend she’s ever had – most recently by Dinosaur Dave, live on TV, during the ‘phone-a-friend’ segment of a quiz show. After the footage goes viral Rosie receives a bunch of flowers with a message:

I love you, I should have never let you go, I want you back x

But who sent them?

At a loose end and with £50,000 prize money in her back pocket, Rosie decides to take a trip down memory lane, visiting each of her ex-boyfriends to see not just if they are the one who sent the flowers but if they are the one.

Her journey takes her back to the house she grew up in and on a transatlantic cruise to New York, but can Rosie figure out which ex-boyfriend is the love of her life, or should the past stay in the past?

A laugh-out-loud romantic comedy from bestseller, Portia MacIntosh. Perfect for fans of Holly Martin, Sophie Ranald and Zara Stoneley.

Betanda Shanam’s Review

My Great Ex-Scape is full of humour with a sprinkling of cringeable moments. Portia’s writing had me captured from the first page. It was a smooth read that I easily slipped into. 

The main character, Rosie, was easy to relate to. I found this was achieved through the positive relationship between Rosie, her parents, and Rosie’s exes (well most of them), which helped this story to be believable. Although coming across pathetic at times, Rosie is able to follow her instincts. In spite of her mind fooling her into being love blind, she is able to achieve her goal. My Great Ex-Scape illiterates that through personal disaster a phoenix will arise.  

An enjoyable read; it was the first time I’ve read one of Portia MacIntosh’s books. I would definitely read more of her books. 

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
