Book Review: The Prenup

04 June 2020|

Title: The Prenup

Author: Lauren Layne

Genre: Romance

Main Characters:

  • Charlotte – lead female
  • Colin – lead male (her husband but not husband)


My name is Charlotte Spencer, and ten years ago, I married my brothers best friend. And I haven’t seen him since.

Charlotte Spencer grew up on the blue-blooded Upper East Side of Manhattan but she never wanted the sit-still-look-pretty future her parents dictated for her. Enter Colin Walsh, her brother’s quiet, brooding, man-bun-sporting best friend, and with him a chance to escape.

He’s far from Charlotte’s dream guy but as they need each other for one thing; marriage. One courthouse wedding later, Charlotte’s inheritance is hers to start a business in San Francisco and Irish-born Colin has a Green Card.

Ten years later, Colin drops a bombshell – the terms of their prenup state that before either can file for divorce, they have ti live under the same roof for three months.

Suddenly this match made in practicality is about to take on a whole new meaning…


The perfect book for you to get lost in and forget about the crisis that has rocked our world.

I enjoyed the lead characters with all their flaws and one million hurdles throughout the story. This read is witty and funny, warm and comforting, lighthearted and fun! Perfect lockdown read.

Have you read it? What did you think?

Any other good book recommendations whilst we are in lockdown and enjoy more time in a good book?
