Summary

Sheila O'Flanagan's best seller If You Were Me will make listeners wonder: what would I do if my first love came back into my life? A must-listen if you enjoy the novels of Veronica Henry and Catherine Alliott.

You're engaged to a great man. You're on a countdown to your wedding day. You stopped thinking about your first love a long time ago. But what if one unexpected, forbidden kiss were to throw your life upside down?

Carlotta O'Keefe suddenly finds herself wondering if the girl she was would recognise the woman she has become. She thought she was living a charmed life. But what if she's got it all wrong? What if her past is meant to be her future?

long winded

This book would have been so much better if it had a faster pace and a few less words. There is nothing worse than when there is just too much detail. Set the scene but cut out the boring bits please. It has put me off buying another one of her books. Narration was ok.

Nice story

Enjoyed this even though the pace was rather slow. Performance was excellent as with the others. Would recommend for a holiday.

Another brilliant Sheila O'Flannigan story

Don't know how she does it but she does, and brilliantly.
Another fabulous Irish saga to lose yourself in. I loved it!
All her stories just seem so plausible and this is no exception. Heroines with all the flaws of us mere mortals, with just the hint of humour.

Dull and repetitive

There are times when a light listen is what's required, so I downloaded this. It turned out to by deeply disappointing on every level other than the narration ~ wouldn't recommend.

Good solid story

I enjoyed this book and all the references to Spain.

Worth a listen. It's a good chick lit book.
