Perfect Timing by Jill Mansell
The book follows the life of Poppy as she meets a strange man in a bar on the night before her wedding and decides she just can't go through with it. Too late, she also realizes she has no idea who this mysterious "Tom" is or where to find him. Now right about here I started thinking this was going to end quite cliche, but the story is full of nothing but surprises.
Poppy moves to London and finds herself sharing a flat with people that you just can't help but love, hate, want to scream at them for being so stupid, and hug when they hurt. Mansell brings these people to life and slowly fills in the side characters that become more important as the story goes on.
I will definately be picking up another of her books and if it is even half as good as this one I'll be completely hooked on her.
