About this item

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.


"I had so much fun reading your first 21st century Bard novel, (now called) 'Sweet Nothing' that I jumped on this one as soon as I saw it listed. Kudos for another intelligent reinterpretation of one of Shakespeare’s plays in contemporary England."
-Jayne, Dear Author

"I read this book in one sitting - in fact I delayed doing other things because I had to read more. This is an excellent story of contemporary love which culminates in a midsummer ball with all the characters in fairy costume, some strange punch and a hypnotist in the crowd."
-Anne, Annie's Book Corner

"And as for the writing - it really sparkles, gentle humor, a little slapstick along the way, and the odd very unexpected tear in the eye. Wonderful stuff - don't overlook this one whatever you do, you'll be missing a few hours of unadulterated fun and enjoyment - I really loved it."
-Anne, Being Anne

"I really enjoyed the changes that Alison May adopted for this story, particularly that of the relationships between the four lovers are, and how they play out throughout the course of the novel... This perfectly fits the category of Romantic Comedy, and I enjoyed every second of it. 5 Stars!"
Sorcha O'Dowd, Old Victorian Quill

"What a delightful retelling of the Bard’s tale in a modern day setting... There is plenty to love in Midsummer Dreams so your next step should be to go read it for yourself and enjoy."
