What to expect

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

‘Fun and life-affirming’ Stylist

‘Heart-warming, funny, and inspiring … A joy.’ Louise O’Neill

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.

Critics Review

  • 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% Serena Mills. I think most women would relate to this character and will embrace her journey! 5 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
