‘It’s the book we all need right now’ Sarah Pinborough

‘Warm, funny, thrilling’ Emma Gannon

‘Unputdownable’ Jennifer Saint

‘Holy s***’ Gillian McAllister

‘Breathtakingly good’ Josie Silver

This isn’t a love story. This is Impossible.⁠

Nick: Failed writer. Failed husband. Dog owner.⁠

Bee: Serial dater. Dress maker. Pringles enthusiast.⁠ 

One day, their paths cross over a misdirected email. The connection is instant, electric. They feel like they’ve known each other all their lives.⁠

While Nick buys a new suit, and gets his courage up, Bee steps away from her desk, and sets off to meet him at a London train station. With their happily-ever-after nearly in hand, what happens next is incredible and threatens to separate them forever.

Think you know how the rest of the story goes? They did too . . .⁠

But this is a story with more twists than most. This is Impossible.⁠


Holy s***. This book. I loved everything about it. The zingy dialogue, the romance, the suspense. The alternate history . . . It’s a love story of the greatest kind. Gillian McAllister

Some books become cultural touchstones that people bond over for years, like One Day or The Time Traveller’s Wife. You remember where you were when you read them, and how you felt. Impossible is one of those books. Laura Pearson

What an absolute joy of a book! I completely fell in love with Bee and Nick and their impossible situation. Witty, engaging and so emotionally resonant, IMPOSSIBLE is the book we all need right now! Sarah Pinborough

It is amazing, NEVER EVER EVER IN MY LIFE HAVE I WISHED I’D WRITTEN A BOOK SO MUCH. I am BAWLING. Bawling. An actual masterpiece. There will not be a book I love more in 2022. Anstey Harris

An absolutely addictive read . . . I was swept away by Bee and Nick’s impossible love story and I was utterly hooked from the start. Genuinely unputdownable. Jennifer Saint

I have DEVOURED Impossible and I’m going to go as far as to say I think it’s one of the best rom coms I have ever read. It’s so funny, so original, so beautifully mad – I am seething with envy that I didn’t write it myself. Sophie Cousens

It is indeed amazing. It has twisted my brain – in a good way – and made me wonder how much of it could be true. Ingenious and beautifully executed. Jill Mansell

My mind is officially blown . . . What a book! Breathtakingly original, clever and unputdownable. Still thinking about it! A work of total genius. Sarah J Harris

It knocked my socks off! Such a ridiculously clever, hilarious read with characters so real, I’ll never forget them. One of the best, most original love stories I ever read. Jessica Ryn

Fun, heartbreaking, and eminently readable all at once. Bee and Nick’s emails are witty and romantic, while their supporting characters are entertaining in both worlds. Lotz manages to combine romance and science fiction into a book that will produce laughter and tears…A thought-provoking and clever genre-bending blend of romance and science fiction. Kirkus

Lotz perfectly balances the heavy with the light, and creates a feeling of genuine connection between her protagonists. The eccentric side characters and strong humor meshes nicely with the earnest, tender romance. The result is simply delightful. Publishers Weekly

Clever, unexpected, and delightfully twisted—in other words, the perfect love story. The Impossible Us is built on brilliant concept that pushes at the boundaries of convention—and the laws of physics. I loved it in this dimension, and if there are versions of me in alternate dimensions, I’m sure they loved it, too. Margarita Montimore

A ripping clever story with so much damn heart. I loved it. Lauren Beukes

“An utterly delightful epistolary romance….The Impossible Us is that rare ‘I laughed, I cried’ book.” The New York Times
