Summary

Ash O’Halloran knows she should be having the time of her life. She’s blonde, 29, single and self-supporting. So, shouldn’t she be out every night, swilling Chardonnay and falling in love? Or, if she isn’t, at least having a great time moaning about it with her best friends?

The trouble is, Ash likes things as they are. And she doesn’t do impulsive. However, Ash begins to wonder if being Miss Self-Contained-and-Secure might also mean missing out….

Slow, dull, gave up

Not sure who this book is aimed at? Certainly an older audience than me (approaching 40). I found myself yelling ‘who cares?!’ to
to narrator every 5 minutes as the lead character just churned out more and more boring and unimportant information, about what she’d eaten for lunch for example. I gave up at chapter 5.

Ruined

I love Sheila O'flannagans books but this was is being ruined by someone who sounds about 80

Narrator not right.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would although the narrator who was excellent spoiled it for me because having a more mature voice meant that the characters, apparently aged mainly in their twenties and thirties sounded like mid to late forties. So that made it a different type of story.

What about Frances Tomelty’s performance did you like?

She is an excellent narrator with great expression but as above, her mature voice gave the story line a different angle

Any additional comments?

I am never sure what I am going to 'get' when I purchase a Sheila O'Flanagan book so I am wary of trying another

boring... predictable.. ending let it down. would

a tediously predictable, boring storyline... unrelatable characters. would NOT recommend unless you suffer insomnia which would no doubt be Cured!

My Favourite Goodbye

I love Sheila's books but this one took so long to get into I have tried several times and now after 3 hours it is getting a bit better. I have all her audio books however I doubt I will buy any more because I am frustrated that at the beginning of every chapter in this book the author reads a recipe. It is incredibly
annoying in every one of her books there is this bit at the beginning of a chapter the theme could be horoscopes or whatever but I fast forward thru this bit. Over the course of a long book this annoying feature
every 20 minutes or so has finally got to me and I will look for another author.
