The third novel in the Johnson Road trilogy finds our threesome and their friends setting up new post-university lives in London, with Seb finally finding true love in the unlikely setting of a pornographic art gallery and Hugo and Katy discovering that true love can be a pretty bumpy road. Alex and Jasper could have told them that ages ago.
Even bumpier is a mild bout of flu which is not as benign as it seems and suddenly Alex, Sophie and Jasper’s future together looks as bleak as the paintings that Sophie is cataloguing. This time, not even Alex’s hip flask can improve the situation, although it comes in handy when Jasper is asked to perform a delicate task of monumental importance.
Challenging parents, oven ready chickens dressed in stilettos and sweet Cypriot lovemaking complete the third and final instalment of the Johnson Road trilogy.
