Boyfriend by Christmas, the debut novel by Jenny Stallard, is about one woman's race to find a man in time for Christmas - based on Stallard's column for the Metro newspaper. The synopsis says: "It's bad enough to be perpetually single, without also being the dating journalist for a major lifestyle website. And Genie Havisham has just been set her toughest deadline yet: find a boyfriend by Christmas or find a new job. Determined not to end the year alone and jobless, Genie sets out to find where all the eligible bachelors in London have been hiding, using whatever means possible. But among the terrible dates, one night stands and the unexpected return of her 'supposedly reformed' ex-boyfriend, could Genie have overlooked what's been right under her nose all along?" Boyfriend by Christmas is out in November 2015.
