'This book is like chatting with a friend over a cup of tea - full of gossip and speculation, and all the things that make life interesting. (...) This touching and intricate story will give back as much as you put in.'
'This is a feelgood book you won't be able to put down.'
Praise for Roisin Meaney
As sweet a tale as the cupcakes Hannah Robinson sells in her shop . . . Meaney weaves wonderful, feelgood tale of a consistently high standard. And that standard rises with each book she writes.
Her best book so far. Repeatedly and deservedly likened to Maeve Binchy, she is a master of her craft and a gifted storyteller. She has outdone herself with a skilful plot, memorable characters and the ability to leave the reader wanting more. The cleverly written plot-within-a-plot gives an interesting twist to this absorbing book. If you are a Binchy fan, I would highly recommend you get to know Meaney too.
'The Last Week of May is a highly engaging and heartwarming tale populated with warm and loveable characters. Roisin Meaney's gentle storytelling is reminiscent of that of Maeve Binchy. I truly adored the book and devoured it within a few short hours.'
'Keenly observed and beautifully told. Lots of writers are compared to Binchy but Meaney really is ... Buy it now and put it in the beach bag.'
'With writing reminiscent of Maeve Binchy's, Meaney is carving out a niche for herself in this crowded market.'
The plot will draw you in; and there is both laughter and tears along the way. Meaney is an accomplished storyteller.
A heart-warming story . . . that readers are bound to devour
