As the election gathers momentum, it turns out that Jenny has more than one skeleton in her closet and Dev is working overtime to try to keep them there.
And suddenly Jenny isn’t sure what she wants anymore …

Praise for The Disengagement Ring
******
Moves along at lightning pace...
Evening Echo
'An entertaining tale of intrigue, romance and family ties set between Dublin, West Cork and Italy. Perfect escapism for the Heat-reading generation
Irish Independent
'Pop it in your suitcase, or curl up on the couch with it on a lazy Saturday afternoon'
RTE Guide
Humour crackling on every page . . .fans of Marian Keyes and Sophie Kinsella will love Girl in a Spin with its funny twists and turns. Delightfully escapist, it would ... easily translate to the big screen . . . As with her first novel, The Disengagement Ring, Murphy has turned a good idea into a great read.
Irish Independent
Girl In A Spin is fast-paced escapism which does what it promises on the cover - transports readers out of their daily lives.
