  • Chloe
    Irish sisters Rio and Dervla haven’t spoken for many years, and neither is particularly bothered by this as they live very separate and different lives. However, the death of their father Frank reunites the pair, and they both regret the time spent apart.Rio lives in picturesque Lissamore with her grown up son Finn and takes any job she can get her hands on. Dervla is a successful estate agent and loves the single high-life. They befriend their...

    Even though it was a little slow to start and there are numerous tautologies that grated on my nerves (uber, Jo Malone) I thoroughly enjoyed this.I am quite familiar with this part of the world (the west of Ireland) and I felt the work described it beautifully.A truly lovely piece of chick-lit.
  • Jessica Hammer
    Lovely and moderately unpredictable story of 2 estranged sisters and the small town that they revolve around. Family, loss, humor and lots of gorgeous Irish countryside imagery.
  • Lucy McLaurin
    I found myself really enjoying this book. It was a breath of fresh air and lovely and girly. Loveable characters with lives that I need to know more about! I did curse you Ms Thompson when I found I need to read the next book (or two) to find out more about the girls! But no worries - both books found and purchased!

Following a feud of many years, the two sisters are reconciled on the death of their father. From then on, their lives intertwine as Dervla co...

    Jill Mansell, Katie Fforde, Patricia Scanlan, Freya North - when Amazon says these were other authors bought by people who bought this one, you know really how it's going to be. It's a thoroughly comfortable read - nice characters (the bohemian sister, the prissy estate agent sister, the film star ex-lover, the millionaire with the stuck up daughter...) and a lovely Irish west coast setting. I enjoyed it well enough, ideal for a light read during...

    Clearly the first of several books (like some of her other books) and I found the ending unresolved to due this. However, well written with interesting characters, although it'll take some major reworking for Izzy to redeem herself!
  • Lynda Atkinson
    I loved this book it’s a real page turner. A summer read that I could not put it down.
  • Natalie
