Summary

Heart-warming and hilarious. You won’t want to miss this year’s stand-out romantic comedy. 

This is a love story....

Serena Mills should be at her wedding. But she’s not.

Instead, she’s eating an ice cream sundae and drinking an obscenely large glass of wine in a Harvester off the M25.

Everyone thinks she’s gone mad.

She’s left the man everyone told her she was ‘so lucky’ to find - because Serena wants to find love. Real love. A love she deserves - not one she should just feel grateful for.

So, she escapes to the big city and sets herself a challenge: 52 weeks. 52 dates. 52 chances to find love. It should be easy, right?

A story about love, forging your own path and falling head over heels - with yourself.

Critic reviews

"Welcome to Your Life is a wonderfully fresh, funny and inspiring romcom about being bold and not compromising on the life you really want." (Cressida McLaughlin)

"Bethany Rutter’s adult debut is a piece of perfection. I loved Welcome to Your Life, not least because I'm at least 90 per cent Serena Mills. I think most women would relate to this character and will embrace her journey! Five big fat stars from me!" (Katy Little)

"The romance of my dreams! Sharp, exuberant and gorgeously written, it is a must-read for 2022." (Katie Lowe, author of The Furies and The Murder of Graham Catton)

Utterly predictable but heartwarming

This was promoted to be Bethany Rutter’s first book for the adult market. I hadn’t read any of her young adult fiction but this book seemed like a book for teenagers too.
An excellently written story, well paced, well narrated, and an easy and enjoyable listen. You could listen to this novel in one sitting when you need a rom com sort of weekend. In fact this plot line would be perfect for a film.
I had worked out what was going to happen halfway through the book though, but I thoroughly enjoyed it anyway.

Fatastic!

Loved this story! Related to the main character in so many ways. A fun, beautiful illustration of modern dating I couldn’t wait to finish.
