Just Haven't Met You Yet
מאת Sophie Cousens
From the New York Times bestselling author of This Time Next Year comes a heartwarming and hilarious tale that asks: What if you picked up the wrong suitcase and fell head over heels for its mystery owner?
 
Hopeless romantic and lifestyle reporter Laura’s business trip to the Channel Islands isn’t off to a great start. After an embarrassing encounter with the most attractive man she’s ever seen in real life, she arrives at her hotel and realizes she’s grabbed the wrong suitcase from the airport. Her only consolation is its irresistible contents, each of which intrigues her more and more. The owner of this suitcase is clearly Laura’s dream man. Now, all she has to do is find him.
 
Besides, what are the odds that she’d find The One on the same island where her parents first met and fell in love, especially as she sets out to write an article about their romance? Commissioning surly cab driver Ted to ferry her around seems like her best bet in both tracking down the mystery suitcase owner and retracing her parents’ footsteps. But as Laura’s mystery man proves difficult to find—and as she uncovers family secrets—she may have to reimagine the life, and love, she always thought she wanted.

    Chapter 1

    "Shall we begin?" I ask the couple on the sofa. "If you just tell me your story as naturally as possible, and remember to keep your eyeline to me rather than looking directly at the camera."

    Sian and Paul both smile and nod. She is a redhead with neatly drawn makeup. He is a bodybuilder type with a jaw square enough to put him in a Marvel comic. While the cameraman, Dylan, makes a few final lighting adjustments, Paul whispers something in Sian's ear, gently stroking her knee with the back of his hand. In the small studio, I am close enough to see the skin on her leg rise into goose bumps. When was the last time another person's touch gave me goose bumps? Seriously, when? I literally can't think of a time, unless you count two weeks ago, when someone barged into me holding a frozen chicken in the freezer aisle at the supermarket.

    "All set," Dylan says, and the light on his camera stops flashing and settles to a constant red.

    "So, Paul, Sian, tell me-how did you meet?" I ask. It is the question I start all these interviews with.

    "Well, it's a little embarrassing," says Sian, pressing her fingertips to her lips like a fifties pinup girl. "I was criminally drunk after a friend's hen do, and when I got back to my flat in the early hours, I had the silly idea of making popcorn on the stove. Of course, I then forgot all about it and passed out on my bed."

    "We got a call from a flat across the road, saying someone's kitchen was on fire," says Paul. "I'm a firefighter, see."

    "I think they can see that, honey." Sian smiles, framing his torso with her hands to show off the fireman's outfit I asked him to wear for the interview. I don't know how he isn't boiling alive under all those layers. The studio is tiny and windowless; it's a single-camera setup with just a couple of studio lights, our distinctive red sofa, and the Love Life logo prominent on the wall behind. The lights heat the room up fast, but Paul and Sian still look like freshly unboxed Barbie and Action Man. Maybe it's only me who's feeling hot and flustered.

    "I was oblivious to any of this." Sian laughs.

    "I had to kick the door down, put the fire out, and rescue the damsel in distress," Paul says, turning to give the camera a brooding pout.

    "Only I didn't think I needed rescuing. I was still a little hazy after too many gin slings." She gives me a wink.

    "I had to carry her out over my shoulder-"

    "A proper fireman's lift-I was kicking and screaming all the way down the fire escape."

    "I got bruises," he says, eyebrows knitting together in mock hurt.

    "I'm sorry, honey." She kisses him on the cheek, he squeezes her knee, and they give each other a love-soaked look. I can practically hear the crackle of electricity between them.

    If you put "hot fireman to get rescued by" into Google, I'm pretty sure a photo of Paul would come up. If I were to ever set my kitchen on fire, I guarantee, it would be a scary schoolmarm-type firewoman coming to save me. Someone who would give me a stern lecture on smoke alarm maintenance. As I look at Sian and Paul gazing into each other's eyes, I'm torn between being super happy that they found each other, and just a tiny bit jealous that these situations never seem to happen to me.

    "So, we sent Sian to hospital to get checked for smoke inhalation, standard procedure," Paul goes on, "and once my shift ended, I figured I'd go check how she was doing."

    "Do you do that for everyone you rescue?" I ask, turning to give the camera my best knowing look.

    "Well, she might have stuck in my memory more than most." He lifts his hand to stroke a tendril of her...

    In Balogh's latest Westcott Regency, irascible Justin Wiley, Earl of Brandon, has the decency to take responsibility for half-sister Maria when her mother dies, inviting her friend Lady Estelle Lamarr to accompany Maria to Everleigh Park, where family secrets crack open and the earl finds himself attracted to Someone Perfect: Lady Estelle. In Guild Boss, New York Times best-selling author Castle again escorts us to the earth colony Harmony for another futuristic paranormal romance fling. In Cousens's Just Haven't Met You Yet, Laura picks up the wrong suitcase at the Channel Islands airport while on a business trip, then hunts for the owner with romantic notions--the suitcase included piano music, her favorite book, and a cool fisherman's sweater--with the help of a cranky cabbie who has charms of his own. Evans returns with another Christmas Promise, featuring a love and faith thought lost restored by the true spirit of Christmas (200,000-copy first printing). In the New York Times best-selling Graves's Heard It in a Love Song, newly divorced music teacher Layla recalls her golden days as lead singer of a bar band and falls into happy conversations with the newly separated dad of one of her students, though both are wary of new love (75,000-copy first printing). Next in Ward's "Prison Camp" series, a Black Dagger Brotherhood spin-off set in an underground prison housing murderers and thieves, The Wolf opens with second-in-command Rio saved from death by a lupine creature with golden eyes (150,000-copy first printing). In canine celebrator Wilson A Dog's Chance, Madison helps both her troubled 14-year-old daughter, Abbie, and 75-year-old Arthur by having Abbie help train Arthur's energetic new golden retriever puppy (35,000-copy first printing).

    A woman travels to the Channel Islands to chase down the story behind her parents' epic romance only to get involved in a complicated love story of her own. When it comes to romance, Laura knows what she wants: a sweeping, fated love story like the one her parents had. Although her father died when she was young and her mother passed away two years ago, she impulsively pitches a story about their romance to her hard-to-please editor at a lifestyle magazine and gets the go-ahead to travel to Jersey and write about the ultimate feel-good meet-cute. But upon arriving, Laura ends up accidentally taking someone else's black suitcase off the luggage carousel. It might be a disaster...or it might be fate, given that the suitcase contains a copy of Laura's favorite book and sheet music for songs by her favorite artist (Phil Collins is an unusual pick for someone in their 20s, but he was Laura's dad's favorite). Maybe the owner of the suitcase is actually her dream man, and maybe this is the real story. But Hot Suitcase Man proves hard to track down, and Laura finds herself spending most of her time with Ted, the gruff cabbie who drives her around the island. Even though she initially nicknames him Beardy McCastaway, he seems more interesting (and attractive) as time goes on. And when she ends up getting to know his family (including his delightful father, Gerry, who has Parkinson's disease), she feels instantly at ease. Laura must decide what kind of love story she's really looking for--one that's written in the stars or one that's right in front of her. Cousens creates a world full of lovable characters who are all trying their best to be happy despite life's many obstacles. Laura's quest to find out more about her parents is compelling, but Ted's journey to sort out his own life while helping Gerry move into an assisted living facility is equally poignant. Although all the characters are dealing with their own hardships, Cousens imbues the entire story with an uplifting sense of hope. As Laura's aunt Monica puts it, "Maybe life's more about carving out happy chapters than finding a single happy ending." The Jersey setting creates a cozy, wind-swept background to the deliciously slow-burn romance. A warm, witty, and absolutely charming seaside holiday that's perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella.

    A lifestyle reporter known for interviewing couples about how they met yearns for a meaningful relationship of her own in this appealing but slow-moving rom-com from bestseller Cousens (This Time Next Year). Laura Le Quesne wants a meet-cute like the one her late parents had: her mother found half an antique ha’penny and traveled to the Channel Islands to reunite it with its mate, owned by Laura’s father. When Laura’s editor hears this tale, she sends Laura to Jersey to retrace their steps and write up their story. After her flight, Laura discovers that she accidentally swapped suitcases with a stranger—and, noticing the rom-com potential of this mishap, prays the handsome man she bumped into on her flight is the one who took her luggage. She sets out to track him down with the help of quirky, bearded taxi driver Ted. As Laura’s misadventures escalate, Ted listens patiently to her romantic flights of fancy and lends a shoulder when she learns some uncomfortable truths about her parents’ relationship, leading Laura to reevaluate what she’s looking for in love. While Laura’s meandering becomes repetitious and she can come across as self-involved, moments of humor and poignancy keep the pages turning. Fans of Sophie Kinsella and Josie Silver will find plenty to enjoy.
