Meet the women of Delaney Square . . .

Cassie has spent her married life doing everything right - making sure her children have the perfect life, being a devoted wife and a dutiful daughter-in-law. Although it's left her so exhausted that 'wine o'clock' comes a little earlier each afternoon . . .

Her sister Coco runs a vintage dress shop and has shied away from commitment over the years. Coco believes men complicate things, and she's got enough to contend with. Until a face from her past returns.

Watching over them is grandmother Pearl, tucked away in her little house in Delaney Square. But something is keeping her awake at night. Was she right to do what she did all those years ago?

And then there's Elsa, the polished face of daytime TV, who's battled demons of her own in the past and come out on top. Now Elsa faces one final fight - but it will require more bravery than anything which has come before.

My shop full of lovely stuff was next to a second hand book shop and the owner's lady friend explained to me what "Chick Lit" was. Until this time I hadn't a clue what it is. This, dear readers, is Chick Lit.

It isn't often I want to write to an author and say "Please expand on the following characters and give them a whole book of their own". Yes, I know real life isn't so neat that everything ends up tickety boo. I know that nice people don't end up with things neatly falling into place after a few rough patches. Just the same there is something especially warm and lovely about these feel good books.

I seriously wonder if the crop of Irish writers in this genre have not improved tourism and even people moving to Ireland, just on strength of their books. I've been to Ireland a few times, and I have to say it rained heavily for most of the times I was there so I can't say I saw the beautiful landscape. One trip was with my extremely eccentric aunt, who though partly of Irish decent, was very vocally explaining the whole trip about how the Irish never appreciated the British dragging them out of the Dark Ages. My next trip when Ireland had just adopted the Euro and a friend was working in Dublin was just as stressful. A 5 minute drive into Dublin city on a Sunday morning turned into a nightmare car trip along a number of arterial roads as my friend constantly lost her way back to her home.

Read all of this writers books, I guarantee it will make you feel good. By the way, does anyone read these reviews? I rather wonder why I take the time to have my say, why I talk to myself as I am doing.

Moved to tears (and I hardly ever cry reading books) by the situation of two grown-up girls meeting up with their long lost mother.

Compelling storyline.

Not the greatest writer in the technical sense, but the story and characters make up for it. Sometimes transitions and plot development are quite abrupt; numerous spelling and grammatical errors - wrong characters' names mentioned....could use a better editing job.
