About the Book :

Dev, a young British-Asian writer in London, is suddenly informed by his live-in girlfriend, Jo, that she’s pregnant. His reaction is to take off for Munich, leaving a note for Jo on the telephone table. What he tells her is that he urgently needs to recover a couple of old manuscripts from his ex-girlfriend, Heidi. What he doesn’t say is that although Heidi left him years ago, he has never stopped hoping for a second chance with her. But shortly after their meeting, Heidi disappears without a trace, and her furious mother places the blame entirely on Dev. Unfortunately, the only person who can help Dev to try and find her is the infuriating Rodrigo, the man Heidi left him for!

Together, Heidi’s two ex-boyfriends set off, squabbling all the time, in pursuit of their former lover. But as their journey progresses, it becomes apparent that each is nursing tender dreams of his own. Neither of them has quite figured out what he will do if and when they do find Heidi, and they haven’t even reckoned with the possibility of there being a third man on the scene. Their disaster-ridden journey leads them into adventures halfway around the world, but they never seem to get any closer to their goal. Meanwhile, there is a price to pay for dropping everything at home and taking off.

Two men thrown together, who could not be more different, but want the same woman equally badly. They will risk everything to reach her. This is their story.
