Good friends. True love. And all the signs of the zodiac. Those of you who enjoy David Nicholls, Marian Keyes and Jojo Moyes are going to love Minnie Darke and her brilliant, feel-good romantic comedy. In Star Crossed, Justine Carmichael (Sagittarius, aspiring journo and sceptic), bumps into her teenage crush Nick Jordan (Aquarius, struggling actor and true believer) by chance. Or is it?

She discovers Nick relies on the astrology column published in the magazine where she works, and makes a few adjustments to the Aquarius horoscope, thinking it may help her love life.
