The Blurb

One woman’s hilarious and fascinating quest to expose the truth behind fraudulent Twitter profiles: romance scammers beware, you have met your match!

Online romance fraud is a problem across the globe. It causes financial and emotional devastation, yet many people refuse to take it seriously. This is the story of one middle-aged woman in a cardigan determined to understand this growing phenomenon. 

No other woman has had so many online romances – from Keanu Reeves to Brad Pitt to Prince William – and Becky Holmes is a favourite among peacekeeping soldiers and oil rig workers who desperately need iTunes vouchers. By winding up scammers and investigating the truth behind their profiles, Becky shines a revealing, revolting and hilarious light on a very shady corner of the internet. 

Featuring first-hand accounts of victims, examples of scripts used by fraudsters, a look into the psychology of fraud and of course plenty of Becky’s hysterical interactions with scammers, this is a must-read for anyone who needs a reminder that Keanu Reeves is NOT in love with them.

The Review

With a title like Keanu Reeves is Not in Love with You you would expect this to be a really funny comedic novel about the perils of online fraud and Becky Holmes definitely delivered on that front. There were moments of this book that I laughed out loud. Becky Holmes really has got the funniest comebacks. 

The best way I can describe this book is a bit of a sad sandwich. When you are holding your stomach giggling Becky Holmes blindsides you with the harsh realities by showing you the true devastation with real life stories.

Keanu Reeves is Not in Love with You is a funny book with a serious message and is definitely worth a read.
