Abbie and Matt were childhood sweethearts but twenty years on, Abbie finds herself wanting to throttle Matt each morning when she finds he has left his teaspoon beside the sink instead of putting it in the dishwasher. After a long dry spell, Abbie decides to try and rekindle the flames of their relationship by reliving some treasured memories together. Unfortunately, some things just aren't the same the second time around, sometimes with hilarious consequences.

P.S. I Hate You is a feel-good, romantic comedy written by Sophie Ranald, the author of Sorry, Not Sorry, It's Not Me, it's You, and Santa, Please Bring Me a Boyfriend. It features several of the characters from Santa, Please Bring Me a Boyfriend, with Abbie being part of the same 'Girlfriends Club' as Rowan, but it is a stand-alone novel and will still make sense if you haven't read the other book.

Like Sophie Ranald's other books, this one is funny in parts, but also gets pretty serious and sad in others, especially in the parts about Matt and Abbie trying unsuccessfully to have a baby. I really enjoyed the realistic depiction of a long term relationship with all the misunderstandings and compromises that can go with it.

Also as in Ranald's other books, there is a cat in this one- a little black and white stray called Shrimp.

Content warning: This book deals with a couple having difficulty conceiving, and infant loss.

Sophie Ranald is such a reliably good author that I tend to save her books to read for times when I'm feeling stressed or tired. Each of her novels I've read so far has been a comforting read with a happy ending and P.S. I Hate You was no exception.

Disclaimer: I was given a complimentary copy of this book by Bookouture, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.
