[Free eBook] Just Haven’t Met You Yet by Cate Woods [Chick-Lit Comedy with LGBT Romance]

Just Haven’t Met You Yet by British author Cate Woods is her chick-lit personal discovery novel with strong romantic comedy elements (both f/m and f/f), free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Quercus.

This was last week’s featured Free Book of the Week in the iTunes UK store, but is still free at the moment in multiple stores.

The story is centred around humorously exploring the meaning of interpersonal relationships, as a woman with a seemingly idyllic life is approached by an up-and-coming “soulmates” company to test out their perfect match data, which apparently leads to some surprising personal revelations, given that she’s already in a relationship. NB: The reviews say this was full of twists and had a surprising ending, so it may not necessarily end in a standard romantic HEA with either the f/m or f/f love interests. YMMV.

Offered in the UK & Europe, available at multiple retailers.
