The Single Dad’s Handbook by Lynsey James

Published 02.04.21

Welcome to The Single Dad’s Handbook, your comprehensive guide to life without me when I pop my clogs!

It’s been two years since cancer stole Evan Harper’s wife, Claire, from their lives. Although Evan’s doing everything he can to be Super Dad for his five year old, Violet, he can’t seem to get anything right. So he turns to the one person who gives the best advice – Claire herself.

Before she died she wrote him a book of letters to see him through the ups and downs of raising their daughter and her words soon help him see that there is life after loss – and maybe even a second shot at love – when you find the courage to start living again…

It’s time to start living again, Evan. Your new forever starts right here. Love always, Claire

An emotional, uplifting story of life, loss and love perfect for fans of Cecelia Ahern and S.D. Robertson.

Five Star Review

Gorgeous and heart warming.

At times this story brought tears to my eyes, it was just so unfair, so cruel. I mourned the life Claire should have lived with Evan and Violet. She had imagined so much. However like Evan I found a sense of peace in her letters.

I adored little Violet and laughed in recognition at the everyday tasks they shared such as the battles to get to school on time. There were lots of moments like this.

Living in Edinburgh I loved the descriptive settings and his truly unique job. Perhaps he was my guide when I too ventured on a tour.

Truly uplifting tale of second chances at love and life. But keep your hankies close.
