Carrie Nolan is devastated when she is dumped by Kevin Mulvey after more than a decade without even a backwards glance! On reflection, she has sacrificed her own long term happiness establishing their critically acclaimed Dublin restaurant and pandering to his excessive ego.
Meanwhile Kevin can’t believe his luck. Valentina, their new waitress is a stunner, the kind of girl that turns heads when she walks in a room and surprise, surprise she has chosen him! He is living the dream!
Carrie seeks solace from a circle of mismatched friends who need her as much as she needs them. Jane, who struggles to run the pub on the opposite side of the street, Luke, who has stopped drifting while his father settles in a nearby nursing home and Teddy, a dog who asks for nothing more than the chance to stay by Carrie’s side.
With Christmas just around the corner, all is not quite as it seems and a catastrophic sequence of events leads to the unthinkable…
How far do you need to fall before you learn the true value of family and friends? And is it ever too late to start again…
I love this author’s books and I was delighted to see that she had a new book coming out and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a copy!
I loved the plot for the story and the characterisation made it a really special read, the characters were well developed and the author completely brought them to life. I loved the setting and the whole thing worked together so well. There was nothing in the book I disliked, it was fabulous from cover to cover!
Another brilliant 5 star read for me from this author, it was a complete treat to read and one I will be very highly recommending – I loved it!!
