Finding Felix is a romantic comedy. It opens with two best friends meeting up before they leave home for university. Dot and Felix have been friends since they were seven.

Roll forward eighteen years. Dot’s Grandmother is seriously ill; hoping to make Nanny Flo happy, Dot says that Felix is her current boyfriend. Thankfully Nanny Flo recovers, but Dot is stuck in an awkward lie which escalates when she’s expected to bring Felix to her sister’s wedding.

Rather than tell the truth, Dot vows to find Felix and persuade him to be an accomplice to her lie until the wedding is over. But Felix has dramatically changed in the last eighteen years, and after she’s found him, Dot finds that Felix is distant and cold. What happened to her childhood friend, and can she ever get the lovable Felix back?

This is a fun book, and I found Dot and Felix easy to like. Even Dot’s over-bearing mother was a delight. Of course I was rooting for them to work out their friendship issues. This book is ideal for a feel-good read if you’re in the mood for a bit of light romance.

Book description

A family wedding. A fake boyfriend. A recipe for disaster! A funny, feel-good romantic comedy from bestseller Jo Platt

Singleton Dot Riley’s grandmother, Nanny Flo, is on her deathbed, surrounded by family and distraught at the thought of Dot being all alone in the world.  Desperate to make Flo’s final moments happy ones, Dot invents a boyfriend – plumping in panic for her childhood friend, Felix, a firm favourite of Flo, but whom Dot hasn’t actually seen for 15 years.

But when Flo makes an unexpected recovery a few weeks before a family wedding, Dot is faced with a dilemma.  Should she tell her frail grandmother that she lied and risk causing heartache and a relapse?  Or should she find Felix and take him to the wedding?

Dot opts for finding Felix.  But it’s not long before she discovers that finding him is the easy bit: liking him is the real challenge.
