Tiffy and Leon share a flat
Tiffy and Leon share a bed
Tiffy and Leon have never met…

Tiffy Moore needs a cheap flat, and fast. Leon Twomey works nights and needs cash. Their friends think they’re crazy, but it’s the perfect solution: Leon occupies the one-bed flat while Tiffy’s at work in the day, and she has the run of the place the rest of the time.

But with obsessive ex-boyfriends, demanding clients at work, wrongly imprisoned brothers and, of course, the fact that they still haven’t met yet, they’re about to discover that if you want the perfect home you need to throw the rulebook out the window…

I finished The Flatshare in one sitting - it is, as promised, incredibly uplifting and joyous. I spent the last few hours with a massive smile on my face. I have fallen head over heels in love with Tiffy and Leon, and indeed with this book
Louise O'Neill
The Flatshare starts out as a sweet, funny, beautifully written romance with great dialogue and characters you'd love to share a flat with...and then, once you're hooked, it deepens and becomes so much more. It's a cheering, lovely look at friendship and love and learning to trust after heartbreak. I never wanted it to end
Maddie Dawson, author of Matchmaking for Beginners and The Survivor's Guide to Family Happiness
Tiffy and Leon will stay in your head long after you turn the final page. This is a gorgeously written, highly original love story that will resonate with anyone who has ever experienced the questionable joys of shared living. I absolutely loved it

The new Jojo Moyes ... This has all the ingredients of Me Before You... seriously funny
The Flatshare is astoundingly good. A beautiful, hope-filled, joyful triumph of a book. I was barely able to put it down yesterday and finished late last night. What a breath of fresh air! Everyone needs to share Tiffy and Leon's bed next year.
Cressida McLaughlin
The premise = genius, but only the beginning. Breaks your heart AND puts it back together. Contains the phrase "sexy tiffin-eating." What more could you want?
Catherine Ryan Howard
Touching, funny and skilful, a delightful read

Lauren North
The Flatshare is original, charming, warm and properly funny. I loved it
Keris Stainton
Utterly charming. Written with care and love for her characters, O'Leary manages to conjure up a Richard Curtis rom-com that also has its feet firmly planted in real life. The concept isn't stretched beyond credibility and, above all else, it's funny and winning. A real treat
Funny, emotional and uplifting ... you'll devour this well-written debut
A fresh, funny, quirky feelgood read with real heart. Tiffy and Leon are characters that you're going to be rooting for from the moment you meet them

I loved the way various strands of Tiffy and Leon's lives were crocheted together ... A warm, colourful, unique story and a thoroughly enjoyable read
