Product Description

Product Description

Steve Carter follows the #1 kindle smash hit, ' Love, Sex and Tesco's Finest Cava ' with another, laugh-out-loud, romantic comedy.

"When you look in all the wrong places, you find all the wrong things."

Andy McLeod's been looking for love in all the wrong places and finding all the wrong things. So Andy decides to change his life, he's off to the beautiful Spanish city of Seville where he intends to take a break from women.
Trouble is Seville's not the easiest place to take a break from them and Andy's soon in over his head with one very sassy female.

Finding Yourself in Seville is a laugh-out-loud, romantic comedy which is full of the author's trademark, angst-driven wit and features a wise-cracking, feisty heroine who's definitely not your archetypal perfect girl with a size ten figure.
Oh, if all that's not enough, it's also a novel with a great little twist.

More About the Author

Guesthouse owner on the beautiful Isle of Skye in NW Scotland.

My first attempt at a short story was 'Why I hate homework.' My Mum read it but she was unable to get past the opening line calling it 'barely readable.'
Undeterred, I came to prominence with a grade 4 in CSE English in 1976 and this set me on the road to nowhere.

'Love, Sex and Tesco's Finest Cava' was my first attempt at writing a novel, mainly just to see if I could do it. It's currently been downloaded 45000 times

'Finding Yourself in Seville' was released in February and is probably the book I'm most proud of.

I am currently working on a new novel with my editor and partner Julie. It's a story about a couple in love who just can't seem to get together as the fates conspire against them. It should be out sometime in 2013.

Andy, is twenty nine and has it all. Good looks, good mates, a snazzy apartment and a stunning partner, Rachel, who adores him... or so he thinks. When he finds out from Doug, his best mate, that Rachel has been bonking his boss his world falls apart. Down, but not out, Andy turns misery into money; he, sort of, blackmails the boss for a handsome sum and heads to Seville (why Seville? well that's where the dart struck the map). Although he has vowed to give his broken heart a complete break from beautiful women he finds Seville has distractions at every turn.

This is another, clever, witty, humorous take on love, by Bloke-Lit maestro Steve Carter, who's characters are never dull and never ever perfect human beings: Andy, for example, is sensitive and moody but always boyishly charming. Rachel has legs to die for but is a spoiled brat. Maggie is nice but sloppy, Doug is not the perfect pal Andy thought he was (can't say more about that character, would be too much information). Gay Sergio is a lovely, gentle, guy but an absolute tart.
They all end up in the same apartment which makes for some very funny scenarios.

If you like wit and humour in your reading material then you will love this engaging, moving tale. It will make you smile if you are male, female, straight, gay or anything in between. If you haven't read Steve Carter's first stroke of genius 'Love Sex and Tescos Finest Cava' then give that a go too. You will laugh your proverbial socks off.
I loved this and give it 5 stars. Mary

5.0 out of 5 stars A most enjoyable read 12 Jun 2012

I basically read the first book, told Steve I liked it via Twitter and was recommended this one (by him). Well it was a very amusing read and I finished it very quickly. Withour giving away to much, I did particularly enjoy the gay bar scene. Would recommend to anyone else who is considering purchasing this.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a great read!! 12 Aug 2012
By Monica

I was looking for a Sevilla guide since I am going there for a few days in October and I came across this novel.

I must say I didn't like the cover that much but since it was was pretty cheap I read the book cover, and within seconds i was hitting the "buy now" button.

Having been a flatsharing student in a new city myself, I immediately fell in love with the book characters: Andy, food-stealing-Johan "el Sueco", and lovely Maggie.

It was the first book I read by Steve Carter but definitely not the last. I love the way he writes. I swear while I was reading I could picture and hear Maria screaming with her strong Sevillan accent :-)

5/5 stars to this book because it was beautifully written, funny and romantic but it also touched serious topics such as aids.

I think i'll have tapas for lunch and plan my trip to Seville.
Well done Steve Carter!

Really enjoyed reading this book. The characters were all so good and I couldn't wait to get to the next chapter to see what they were all up to. It was a light hearted story with lots of amusing parts. I haven't read any of the authors books before but I will look out for more now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun read 31 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I downloaded this when it was a freebie, but only just got round to reading it!

I thought this was a great fun holiday read, and I loved the characters, think you could see what was going to happen, but was enjoyable getting there!

I actually read this before the 'cava' book, and found a few connections x

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it and didn't want it to end! 28 May 2013
By Loru
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was one of the wittiest and most original books I've read in a long time. Given that I read a lot, I find many books are written to the same formula. This book however, is wholly original in both its content, setting and characters. Just when you think you have the characters all worked out, they surprise you with more depth and grow with each page turned.

The book provides an intuitive observation into the lives and loves of characters who both enchant and amuse in their quest to find their utopia of all things important to them. The writer provides this in a way that is believable yet captivating without any over romanticising.

I can't wait for the next novel!

I felt the sun on my skin, it was if I was in Seville. Very easy read very likeable. If you want to disconnect for a little a bit this is is a great way of doing it. I will try to buy his first book as I did really enjoy this one.
