Sunday Times bestselling author Mhairi McFarlane was born in Scotland and her unnecessarily confusing name is pronounced Vah-Ree. After some efforts at journalism, she started writing novels and her first book, You Had Me At Hello, was an instant success. She's now written seven books and she lives in Nottingham with a man and a cat.
"McFarlane strikes romantic comedy gold with this tale of reunited
sweethearts who have to grapple with the past... deeply satisfying
on several levels, and Lucas's final romantic speech is one for the
ages.. a beautiful balance of tenderness, wry humor, and deep
emotion."--Publishers Weekly (starred
"McFarlane delivers a novel with heart and humor, comprised of laugh-out-loud one liners, outrageous comedic scenes, and a Nana who deserves a medal for her non-filtered tongue. Meanwhile, she isn't afraid to explore the grief process as Georgina processes her father's death, and a mixture of emotions are evoked as Georgina goes on a journey of self-discovery, complete with her hot pink fur coat."--Booklist
"McFarlane uses Georgina's voice to explore how humor is used to mask pain as well as to help understand and get through it. Successful as both a romantic comedy and an insightful look into finding one's voice, this is a story readers will flock to for the laughs and remember for its realness."--Library Journal
"Don't You Forget About Me is one of those books I couldn't put down. Crackling with energy and wit, I lost count of how many times I laughed out loud. Mhairi McFarlane's voice is as clear as a bell--she makes you laugh, but she also makes you feel. I adore her!"--Sally Thorne, USA Today bestselling author of The Hating Game and 99 Percent Mine
