All Abby wanted was a life with Charlie. All Charlie wanted was to be single. After being unceremoniously dumped on Valentine’s Day, Abby’s best friends, Woody and Lucy head to the rescue by creating a list that’s sure to get her over him and reaffirm her faith in love, but each step ends in complete disaster.

Become best friends with Woody and Lucy and see if they can convince Abby that true love can be found at happily never after…

There’s a code to surviving a breakup – you eat Ben & Jerry’s, you buy new shoes, listen to Taylor Swift, watch The Notebook, and then somehow you magically move on. But what happens next in the real world? Getting Over Charlie is the first romantic comedy novel in a real-time trilogy that follows the lives and loves of three best friends as they battle and push forwards with life’s changes, losses and loves.

Heartwarming and hilarious, Getting Over Charlie is a hug in a book for anyone going through the same, or a good chick-lit to tuck into and feel as though you’ve stumbled upon three new besties. Which of course, you have…

A few life lessons you’ll learn in Getting Over Charlie:

The sheer importance of eating basil before a plane flight
Hell is certainly not white
Unconditional love can come in many forms, not just one like the movies would have you believe
She who farteth when she sittieth down will still have many friends
You will always get over the one you thought you never would …

Review by Stacey

After her boyfriend of two years dumps her on Valentine’s Day, in spectacular fashion, Abby is devastated. She worshipped Charlie, did everything for him, and this is how he thanks her. After locking herself in her room and crying for a week, her best friends Lucy and Woody have had enough and devise the ‘Getting Over Charlie’ plan.

Unfortunately, not everything runs as smoothly as they had hoped. However, it might actually be Charlie himself who brings Abby to her senses, for now!

Getting over Charlie is a laugh-out-loud book that has some seriously amusing moments, and some kinky scenes too. There was one point where I just couldn’t stop laughing, although, I would rather forget it, as it included a trip to the dentist, some stitches, and a mother!!

Whether you have been through a bad break-up, are going through one, or have never had to suffer this way, this book is for you. It is good fun, shows the power of friendship, and is highly imaginative, yet scarily realistic. Without giving any of the plot away, at one point Abby visits a psychologist who explains what men like Charlie are like, what they do to women, and why they do it. Now, I’ve been married for many years, and yet I looked back on the relationships from before I met my husband with fresh eyes and a nod to – you are so right.

This is a beautifully crafted book that will take you away from your everyday life and into the mind of Abby as you join her as she tries to mend her heart. The characters are all well-rounded and you will feel like you have known them forever. Getting over Charlie is a book I adored from the first page to the last. I now can’t wait to continue the story in book two.

Cherry Martin getting over charlie

Hi, I’m Cherry Martin, I graduated in 2003 from the University of Greenwich, England with a LLB Honours in Law, then I moved across the Thames to Canary Wharf and have since worked as a local and national journalist, international writer, editor, copywriter and ghost writer. Nope, I didn’t realise that there were so many facets to a career in writing either …

My pen has taken me all over the world to experience things I never thought I would and meet people who have definitely made my life better.

Never far from a pen, notepad and my latest book, I knew some day that the time would come for me to have my own name on the cover after ghostwriting for so many others. I’m beyond excited to finally launch my first romantic comedy novel, ‘Getting Over Charlie’.

Whether you’re looking for a holiday book to lose yourself in, or a chick-lit to make you fall in love all over again I hope you find it and have a good giggle alongside Abby, Lucy and Woody. I’ve always hated that feeling you get when you finish a book and miss the characters that you’ve come to love, that’s why Getting Over Charlie is a real-time trilogy. The second book ‘All the Vows’ will simply continue their story. True friendships shouldn’t end and neither will this …

After leaving the city, I now live by the sea in the UK with my furry ginger ninja tribe. I’m determined to do my best on my personal mission to ensure that the world is a friendlier, happier place where no one feels alone.
