Welcome Patricia Caliskan as they share their Great Pick Up Line from Awful by Comparison.
Take it away Patricia!


We looked at each other, and I knew it was finally, definitely, over.

‘Now that I’m here, knowing how quickly you’ve moved on, I agree, Jennifer. I must have been mad…’

I watched as he walked over to a waiting yellow taxi, quickly pulling away from the kerb with my heart held hostage on the backseat.

Awful by Comparison by Patricia Caliskan

Bridget Jones meets Love Actually – Holly Kinsella.

Receiving five star reviews, Awful by Comparison (Endeavour Press) is a hilariously funny and wonderfully observed romcom hailed as Bridget Jones meets Love Actually.

Jennifer Taylor is home for the holidays – and the foreseeable future – as she loses her job, apartment and boyfriend, one month before Christmas. Her sister, Lara, a beautiful NYC-based model, is also coming home – to announce a whirlwind engagement to a rich hotelier.

But when an anonymous blog hits the headlines, the sisters find themselves at the centre of a dark secret which will change their family forever.

Will Jennifer ever learn to live in the shadow of her sister’s success – preferably with a full-time job and a drawer full of matching underwear?
Can Lara ever find happiness in a world where appearances can be deceptive, and men usually are?

Sisters, friends and finances – sometimes a girl feels Awful By Comparison.

Oh oh, that sounded ominous. Good-bye to one and hello to another.

Love the side of a story about two sisters.
