Sorry Not Sorry is a genuinely feel good book that will brighten up any day and one that I enjoyed reading.
Charlotte shares a house with her two friends, Maddy and Henry, but when they hook up, get engaged and move out to get their own place together, Charlotte realises that she's stuck in a serious rut. With the prospect of two new flatmates on the horizon, she soon reaches the conclusion that she needs more in her life than just work and Netflix. So when she stumbles upon a podcast called 'Sorry Not Sorry' that challenges women to embrace their inner bad girl, she decides to embrace the challenge and potentially spice up her life a bit.
I tend to read quite a lot of psychological and crime thrillers so I always relish diving into a humorous romance and Sorry Not Sorry didn't let me down.
Charlotte was a very relatable character and she could have been me or any one of my friends. Watching her trying to complete the challenges from the podcast was sometimes funny and other times cringe worthy, but I think we've all been there, it's just whether or not we admit to it! I thought that this made her and her interactions with her friends really believable. Her new flatmates Tansy and Adam were interesting and I was intrigued to see how they would be Incorporated into Charlotte's world and there were a few things that I wasn't expecting so that kept me on my toes.
This was my first outing with author Sophie Ranald and I thoroughly enjoyed her writing style which was littered with witty humour and although it didn't have me 'laughing out loud' there were a good few chuckle worthy moments. I'd definitely read more from her.
I would recommend this book for anyone who is looking for something fun and light-hearted to read and it would be the perfect accompaniment for a poolside lounger and a cocktail!

Sophie Ranald is the youngest of five sisters. She was born in Zimbabwe and lived in South Africa until an acute case of itchy feet brought her to London in her mid-20s. As an editor for a customer publishing agency, Sophie developed her fiction-writing skills describing holidays to places she'd never visited. In 2011, she decided to disregard all the good advice given to aspiring novelists and attempt to write full-time. After one false start, It Would Be Wrong to Steal My Sister's Boyfriend (Wouldn't It?) seemed to write itself. Her second, third and fourth novels followed, and The Truth About Gemma Grey was released in summer 2017. Sophie also writes for magazines and online about food, fashion, finance and running. She lives in south-east London with her amazing partner Hopi and Purrs, their adorable little cat.
