Blog Tour: Three’s a Crowd – S.R. Booker

What happens when an estranged father and son unwittingly fall in love with the same woman?

Out-of-work actor Harriet is recuperating from a crash-and-burn affair with Damian – aka ‘Cockweasel’ – and making ends meet as a barista when she meets two rather lovely men. Tom is a regular at the café, and seems like such a nice guy. Smooth-talking DJ Richard is older, but in great shape – a real silver fox.
Deciding to take a chance on both of them, Harriet doesn’t realise at first that she is actually dating father and son. Tom and Richard aren’t on speaking terms, and don’t share a last name – so how was she to know? By the time everyone finds out, both Tom and Richard are truly madly deeply in love with Harriet, and she’s faced with an impossible choice.
But as the battle for her affections intensifies, ‘Cockweasel’ makes an unexpected reappearance and begs her to give him another chance…

My thoughts: this was a really fun romp of a rom com. Harriet’s a fantastic character, riddled with self doubt and living with the grim reality of Pure OCD, which manifests as intrusive thoughts, often graphic, at the very worst moments.

But she’s also lots of fun, enthusiastic and attractive to both Tom and Richard, and sadly Damien the Cockweasle. Tom and Richard are both very different, despite their being father and son. They don’t even share a last name anymore. And are barely on speaking terms. They really need to sit down and have a proper heart to heart about a few things.

Enter ‘Gorgeous’ George – Richard’s dad, Tom’s grandad, lifelong cad and small time con man. Who throws spanners into the works casually and without much care. The three get caught up in the caper and find their relationships need a little re-evaluation.

Funny, sweet, clever and hugely entertaining. Definitely one for this winter’s cold and miserable weather, curl up and get cosy, then let this book keep you entertained.
