When We Were Us by Patricia Caliskan

Welcome to my stop on the virtual book tour put on by Rachel's Random Resources. This romcom is perfect if you enjoy books by Marian Keyes or Caroline James.

About the Book:

Is it ever too late to start again…?

Erika Forde has always played second fiddle to her husband David, the famous novelist. But since their son, Matt, left home for university, cracks have started to show in their marriage.

Erika has long had a nagging suspicion that David may not always have been faithful, and now his latest books are starting to wane in popularity causing erratic moods that are affecting Erika.

But while David’s career starts to dip, Erika’s advertising agency is on the up.

Erika’s creative genius wins the agency a huge client in Stable Denim, but her life is thrown into turmoil when one of the models cast for the campaign turns out to be her ex-boyfriend, Enzo.

Has Enzo been sent back into Erika’s life for a reason? Is it time for her to reevaluate her marriage?

Or should some things be left in the past…?

WHEN WE WERE US is a second chance love story that shows the ups and downs of family life with buckets of humour and wit.


For the past couple of months, the garage had become David’s makeshift office. He had initially started using the space for a new exercise regime. David hadn’t visited a gym in years, not since he’d nipped in to use the vending machine, waiting to pick Matt up from swimming. Next, in went the desk, finding it peaceful, he said, to edit his final draft. A few weeks ago, she dared knock, offering him a glass of wine, conducting their entire conversation from behind the half-propped door, with only his Crocs visible. Erika suggested he might be more comfortable indoors in his actual office. He mumbled the usual gripes about needing to compose his thoughts, but to all intents and purposes, her husband had left her without actually leaving her, and where was the fairness in that?
