I loved it. The characters have been captured so well and it just feels so like Mike Bullen’s creation. Harrington has understood the characters exceptionally well, and I loved taking the journey with them. Their voices ring out from every page, and I love the fact that I learnt more about them and their journey. Harrington should be very proud – it really is fabulous!

The author has captured the essence of the characters so very well that they appear uninterrupted in the imagination and continue as if there had never been any sort of lull in the story. As always, the characters made me laugh out loud and yet, they also made me a little bit sad, but such is the nature of the Cold Feet phenomenon, there’s always a clever mix of light and shade which is continued in this novel.

Irish author Carmel Harrington was asked to bridge the gap from the original storyline to the current one, in her novel Cold Feet: The Missing Years. New characters are introduced alongside the original ones, adding a dimension to the heart-warming humour. From Manchester to Belfast and back, the novel spans a year of tears, laughter and friendship in true Cold Feet style. Harrington has captured the characters’ colloquialisms, personalities and group dynamic. An immensely enjoyable companion to the TV show.
I had a fantastic time reading th[is] book . . . It really felt like it could have been the next series of Cold Feet in its original run . . . The Lost Years is a fantastic adaptation that keeps the essence of everything that made Cold Feet, Cold Feet and for fans of the show, it is a must-read.

This book retains the charm . . . [It] was like catching up with old friends and I couldn’t put [it] down . . . Good job, Carmel. It’s not easy to take on such much-loved characters and continue it on whilst staying true to their personalities but you pulled it off. Any chance of another one?
