Summary

Meet Patrick Cooper - desperately down on his luck and head-over-heels in unrequited love with his best friend, Bridget. 

Meet Bridget's sister, Emma Donovan - eternally single maker-of-cakes for many a happy couple, whilst never making it down the aisle herself.

Emma has four younger sisters, all of whom are married or getting married, and an Italian mother who can’t understand what is ‘wrong’ with her eldest daughter, who seems to be stranded on the shelf. Despairing of her own ability to find a suitable husband, Emma agrees to be part of a compatibility project to get married at first sight. 

Meanwhile Cooper is struggling to get over his crush on Bridget and seems destined to stay firmly on the shelf too. Perhaps it’s time his fate was taken out of his hands.... 

Is happily-ever-after just about daring to take a chance, or do you need some extra magic to make love last?

Join Beth Moran, Cooper and the Donovan sisters on this life-affirming and uplifting tale of love, family, friendship and risking it all for happiness.

Beautiful characters, disappointing outcome

Beautiful story, perfect narration
Was so looking forward to got through every chapter and so hopeful for the outcome but thoroughly disappointed by the end.
Felt like the author was in a rush to finish the book and chose the obvious and easy way

best book yet

loved the story loved the characters and especially loved the coverage of M E.such a poorly understood disorder.but not by this author.a senstive anr realastic portrayal of how this invisible disease affects not just the patient,but the whole family .And seamlessly weaved into the story.thanks so much ,this should raise recognition of this disorder and its tenacious effects on peoples carers and their and their families livex

Refreshing

A story about a strong loving family and five sisters and their relationships with the men in their lives and each other. A sweet story about a young man in love with one sister and marrying another in a research project and their discoveries they all make about themselves and each other along the way. Great narration too. I hope Beth Moran writes even more books with the same soul and familial bonds as this one.
