SOMEONE SPECIAL by Sheila O'Flanagan is an enthralling novel about families, friends and finding love that should not be missed by readers of Veronica Henry and Marian Keyes.

Romy Kilkenny loves her life in Australia - she has her dream job, a fun lifestyle, and best friend Keith who understands her better than anyone. Best of all, she couldn't be further from her family. But when a phone call summons her home at short notice, Romy's world is turned upside down.

Romy has never fitted in, and with Keith too far away to give comfort, she feels like more of an outsider than ever. She also worries that the accidental half-kiss with Keith at the airport may have lost her the greatest friend she's ever had. What on earth has Romy let herself in for?

This book is genial. It goes in depth to the heart and soul of every character. You know what everyone is thinking and feeling. There is not one paragraph in this book that is boring or useless. I was hooked from beginning to end. It was my first read by Sheila O'Flanagan but definitely not my last. Loved it!

Pretty predictable storyline. The 'misunderstood' daughter returns home to nurse the mother she didn't get along with (for a variety of reasons); feels that she's not respected by her step-siblings. Much personal growth is experienced. A light, but enjoyable read.
