Lara has always had an overactive imagination, but now the spirit of her great aunt Sadie has appeared to make one last request: she must find a missing necklace. Lara's got enough problems of her own: her start-up company is floundering and she's just been dumped. But perhaps Sadie's ghost could also be the answer to Lara's problems?

It took me a little while to get into this as, for me, the narrator's voice wasn't strong enough. However as the story grew this became less of an issue. The relationship between the two main characters is funny, frustrating and moving, especially when it came to an end. A really good read.

Lola has every reason to be interested in who Paddy de Courcy is marrying - because although she's his girlfriend, she definitely isn't the bride. Heartbroken, she flees the city for a cottage by the sea. But will her retreat prove as idyllic as she hopes? Not if journalist Grace has anything to do with it. Grace knew Paddy a long time ago. But why can't she forget him?

Not typical Marain Keyes - but brilliant

I usually love Marain Keyes books I must admit thst I had tried to read the actual book with little success. I had found Lola's "voice" irritating. However I am so glad I got the audio book. The story hits all emotions and I had sympathy for all characters and was desperate to hear all of their stories. The twists and turns meant I was never quite sure what was going to happen next. There were laugh our loud moments as well as a few tears. It is most definitely not a typical Marian Keyes book - but is still an avid read.

1957, and Lewis Aldridge is travelling back to his home in the South of England. He is straight out of jail and nineteen years old. His return will trigger the implosion not just of his family, but of a whole community. A decade earlier, his father's homecoming casts a different shape. The war is over and Gilbert has recently been demobbed. He reverts easily to suburban life - cocktails at six thirty, church on Sundays - but his wife and young son resist the stuffy routine. Lewis and his mother escape to the woods for picnics, just as they did in wartime days. Nobody is surprised that Gilbert's wife counters convention, but they are all shocked when, after one of their jaunts, Lewis comes back without her.

It took me a little while to get into this book but once I was in there was no coming out! The book is brilliantly read and the characters completely come to life. There were times when I found myself yelling at them I was so involved. The events happen over 9 years and the era is caught beautifully in the narration and descriptions. I really recommend this book.

I haven't been a fan of the shopaholic series but thought I'd give it a try. The hours flew by! The story was addictive and funny. A fantastic book.
