Since coming back from Australia, Kate Harrington has been stuck in a dead-end secretarial job she hates with a boss she despises.
To make matters worse, she’s renting out a room in her seaside flat to Claire, someone she never got along with at school, let alone now.
And then there’s her love life.
After two years, she still holds a flame for the enigmatic Joe, her ex-boyfriend, who might have sported a questionable ponytail but who has somehow become more mythical and beautiful as time has gone on.
The problem? He lives about 10,000 miles away and they’ve fallen out of touch.
Everyone around her seems to have their lives together; her brother, Dan, is living the high life and her old friend, and formerly reliable ‘plus one’, Stan, is dating the self-assured Anna.
Kate decides that she’s had enough and quits her job.
When she gets asked by heavily pregnant Liv to help her out at the Globe Café, one of her favourite places, she jumps at the chance.
Maybe she’ll enjoy waitressing despite the grumpy Italian owner and his judgemental wife?
She was good at making Cappuccinos in Sydney, so why not in Broadstairs?
Just as Kate thinks she’s found happiness, her life is thrown into confusion as she discovers that Stan has been hiding his true feelings for her.
Will Kate ever let go of her feelings for Joe and embrace a relationship with her old friend Stan?
Has love been lurking right beneath her eyes?
The Way It Never Was is a memorable story of old loves and new beginnings.
