Lucie Yi Is Not A Romantic by Lauren Ho

One of the pleasures of reviewing online for My Weekly magazine is the variety of books I get to read. Today, my latest review is of an author I haven’t read before. I’m delighted to share details of my review of Lauren Ho’s Lucie Yi Is Not A Romantic today.

Published by HarperCollins on 23rd June 2022, Lucie Yi Is Not A Romantic is available for purchase through these links.

Lucie Yi Is Not A Romantic

Lucie Yi has tried love – it didn’t work.

She’s decided that finding Mr Right is a myth, and that finding Mr Right-enough-to-have-children-with is the next best option. So when she meets easy-going Collin Read on a platonic co-parenting website, it finally feels like she has found her version of happily ever after.

But things take a turn for the worse when they move back home to Singapore where her very traditional family and remorseful ex-fiancé await.

With pressure mounting on all sides and her perfect plan unravelling, Lucie has to decide how much she’s willing to sacrifice for a chance at happiness – and maybe, just maybe, love.

  1. I had not heard of this book, Linda. I just read your full review and it definitely sounds like a great story. I am guessing it is best not to read this one if you are hungry. Wonderful review.
