This is the fourth book by Keyes about the Walsh sisters – a wonderfully dysfunctional family of 5 young women and their loving but odd parents. Anna Walsh must return to her family in Ireland to recover from a disfiguring car accident, but she can’t wait to get back to her life in New York as a PR person for Candy Grrrl cosmetics. But when she gets home, Anna can’t figure out why her husband Aiden isn’t returning any of her messages. Anna’s mum and her scary, beautiful sister Helen are a hoot. Anna’s work for Candy Grrrl also provides a lot of comic relief – Anna is forced to wear “quirky” outfits to work (terrible hats, purses shaped like unpurse like things, pink fishnets) when what she longs for is a charcoal suit. This book is a perfect blend of heartbreak and hilarity. (submitted by GH)

Keyes is such a great storyteller. This book was humorous, I loved the characters, got sucked in and couldn't put it down.

A friend recommended this author as being light and amusing. It was ... dealing with a tough subject but with many laugh-out-loud moments. Enjoyed ... looking forward to reading more from this author!

Loved it! Marian Keyes books are NOT the usual chick-lit offerings, they're so much deeper, so well written, and always engaging. This is definitely my favourite by this wonderful author.

This book was amazing, and had the power to bring you to tears and laugh out loud at the same time. It was very moving, and I highly recommend it.

This is an excellent book. The characters are very real, quirky and fun. The book has some really good twists - and feels very real.
