The Five-Year Plan

Two people. One epic love story. What if?

The perfect fun and heartwarming romance to escape with from the bestselling author of Marry Me Tomorrow

‘OMG! The chemistry between Orla and Aiden is electric!’ Netgalley reviewer

‘Sometimes you just need a good story with heart, and this is one of those books’ Goodreads reviewer

Orla is a trainee reporter with a five-year plan: work her way up the career ladder, move to London and secure a job on a big national newspaper. She doesn’t want a boyfriend, he’s only going to hold her back anyway.

Aiden spends his life travelling the world and living in a tent. He knows his goal: to photograph animals and raise awareness of global warming and wildlife conservation. He’s definitely not looking for a relationship past the odd casual hook-up!

So when Orla and Aiden’s lives collide, they do everything to not fall for each other – with the opposite effect. But they stick to their plans, and go their separate ways…

Five years later, they meet again…

If you love Mhairi McFarlane, Jo Watson and Paige Toon, you’ll LOVE Carla Burgess. The Five-Year Plan is the perfect fun and feel-good escapist read.
