From the New York Times bestselling author of This Time Next Year comes a heartwarming and hilarious tale that asks: What if you picked up the wrong suitcase and fell head over heels for its mystery owner?



Hopeless romantic and lifestyle reporter Laura’s business trip to the Channel Islands isn’t off to a great start. After an embarrassing encounter with the most attractive man she’s ever seen in real life, she arrives at her hotel and realizes she’s grabbed the wrong suitcase from the airport. Her only consolation is its irresistible contents, each of which intrigues her more and more. The owner of this suitcase is clearly Laura’s dream man. Now, all she has to do is find him.



Besides, what are the odds that she’d find The One on the same island where her parents first met and fell in love, especially as she sets out to write an article about their romance? Commissioning surly cab driver Ted to ferry her around seems like her best bet in both tracking down the mystery suitcase owner and retracing her parents’ footsteps. But as Laura’s mystery man proves difficult to find—and as she uncovers family secrets—she may have to reimagine the life, and love, she always thought she wanted.

Story Locale: London and Jersey (UK)

PERFECT FOLLOW-UP TO AN ACCOMPLISHED DEBUT: Sophie Cousens’ debut novel, This Time Next Year, was a Good Morning America book club pick and an instant New York Times bestseller. We expect this success and momentum to carry over to Cousens’ second book.

AN AUTHOR POISED FOR SUCCESS: This Time Next Year has been met with strong enthusiasm and orders from key accounts, and reviews have praised the book as “a touching debut…ripe with both emotional vulnerability and zaniness” (Publishers Weekly). We will leverage that impressive distribution footprint to pave the way for publication of Just Haven’t Met You Yet.

LOVE STORY WITH A HIGH CONCEPT HOOK: Fans of This Time Next Year will find this warm and witty story of missed connections, fated love, and unexpected romance every bit as charming as Cousens’ debut. With Just Haven’t Met You Yet, Cousens cements her brand as an author who can hold her own against heavy hitters like Josie Silver and Rebecca Serle.

PERFECT FORMAT: Trade paperback has become the ideal format for romantic fiction, attracting a crossover readership from genre romance fans to readers of rom-coms and sophisticated love stories. The package will align with the evocative illustrated look readers in this space have come to expect.

AN IDEAL BOOK CLUB READ: Cousens deftly explores conversation-worthy themes like fate versus free will, finding love, and the undeniable power of chance, and the result is a story that will make readers laugh, cry, and think.

UK PARTNERSHIP: As with This Time Next Year, Putnam is publishing Just Haven’t Met You Yet in conjunction with Penguin UK/Arrow, who are continuing their positioning of Cousens as a major brand name in the high-concept love story space.

Sophie Cousens worked as a TV producer in London for more than twelve years and now lives on the island of Jersey in the UK, balancing her writing career with working for an arts charity and taking care of her two small children. She is the author of This Time Next Year.

“Cousens creates a world full of lovable characters who are all trying their best to be happy despite life’s many obstacles. Although all the characters are dealing with their own hardships, Cousens imbues the entire story with an uplifting sense of hope…The Jersey setting creates a cozy, wind-swept background to the deliciously slow-burn romance. A warm, witty, and absolutely charming seaside holiday that’s perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Appealing…Humor and poignancy keep the pages turning. Fans of Sophie Kinsella and Josie Silver will find plenty to enjoy.”Publishers Weekly

“At times heartbreaking and incredibly hopeful, Cousens’s delightful read is a sweet romance that gives Laura the freedom to grow as a character. Readers of Jill Mansell or Mhairi McFarlane will definitely enjoy.“ —Library Journal

“Exactly the sort of fun, pacy, beautifully-written romantic story I needed.”—Lorraine Brown, author of Uncoupling

“A perfectly charming escape. I laughed, I teared up, and I smiled my way through. Just Haven’t Met You Yet hits all the right notes for a great romantic comedy.”—Helen Hoang, author of The Kiss Quotient

”Reading Sophie Cousens is like meeting a new best friend. She makes you laugh, she makes you cry, you feel like you’ve loved her forever, and you don’t want to let her go. Just Haven’t Met You Yet—out soon and even better than This Time Next Year.“—Clare Pooley, author of The Authenticity Project

“This book is pure, unbridled joy. With a wholly immersive setting and pitch-perfect humor, Just Haven’t Met You Yet is sure to leave you smiling long after you’ve turned the last page.”—Rachel Lynn Solomon, author of The Ex Talk
