'With a cast of characters who are both likeable (if flawed) and believable, this is a lovely mix of romance, heartbreak, angst and ultimately happy endings'

Praise for Ciara Geraghty

Move over Marian, it's Ciara . . . impressive and highly entertaining [with] one of the most authentic female characters I've read in women's fiction for a long time . . . lots of biting humour and a darker side beneath the laughs.
<i>Irish Independent Review</i>
'This laugh out loud page-turner is full of characters you long to know . . . This delicious debut cannot fail to enchant the young, and the young at heart.'
<i>Irish Examiner</i>
'A touching story of a flawed but loveable heroine'
<i>U</i> magazine
Witty, sharp and intelligent . . . a great way to switch off at the end of the day
RTE Guide
Quirky characters, heart-rending turnarounds and an ending that's far from traditional
