Book 2 in series


Four people. Four messy lives. One night that changes everything …

Emily is obsessed with ending her father’s new relationship – but is blind to the fact that her own is far from perfect.

Dominic has spent so long making other people happy that he’s hardly noticed he’s not happy himself.

Helen has loved the same man, unrequitedly, for ten years. Now she may have to face up to the fact that he will never be hers.

Alex has always played the field – but when he finally meets a girl he wants to commit to, she is just out of his reach.

At a midsummer wedding party, the bonds that tie the four friends together begin to unravel and show them that, sometimes, the sensible choice is not always the right one.

A modern retelling of Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream and second novel in the 21st Century Bard series.

Available as an eBook and in paperback from all good bookshops and online stores.

Customer Reviews


  1. “Ill met by moonlight, proud Titania”. Thus says Oberon in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. I didn’t read the blurb before I read the book (I trust Chic Lit implicitly!) and was delighted to discover my friends from the magical forest of Shakespeare!

    I loved the characters and how they blended with their literary counterparts. It was a beautifully tangled plot – the Bard would have been pleased!

    The scenes on Midsummer Night were brilliantly described and the “magic” cleverly integrated. Was impressed with the way all the minor characters were tied in with the action of the main characters.. Although I did feel like chasing Emily a few times!

    This is my first Alison May book and I am looking forward to reading her others.
