'Utterly irresistible and joyful - the perfect summer read!' bestselling author, Faith Hogan
'A gorgeous story of friendship, community and starting over' Jessica Redland
Dreams can come true, you just have to believe...
After 10 years in London, working in a stressful City firm, Liv O’Neill returns home to Sandycove, a picturesque seaside village, just outside Dublin to care for her mother after a fall.
Whilst Liv reconnects with friends and family, she is amazed by Sandycove’s thriving community spirit with its artisan shops, delis and cafes - it’s not quite the place she left behind.
As village life begins to creep under her skin, Liv is forced to confront the things that drove her away.
Can Liv balance her past, present and future and find her own happy place?
And will a handsome young doctor help her make a decision about the life she really wants?
Suddenly her old life in London begins to seem extremely unappealing and Liv is forced to use her family’s past in order to forge a brand new future.
From the Publisher
I have always wanted to tell stories and somehow – miraculously! I have found myself lucky enough to explore the lives of others in my novels. All of them are set in the part of Ireland where I live – beautiful south Dublin from Dun Laoghaire to the villages of Sandycove and Dalkey. They are bustling communities, full of characters and houses facing the sea.
My characters are women struggling to make a life that works for them. As we know, life is rarely plain sailing and I will always deal with the more challenging situations – the kind that have the power to force us to change tack but ultimately the kind we learn and grow from.
Balanced with that is buckets of Irish charm and humour because none of us can survive without having a bit of fun. There is always a love story but it has to be the very best kind, the one worth waiting for, that you barely dared to dream about.
I really hope you enjoy my books and I am thrilled with how many people seem to enjoy them.
Lots of love Siân xxx
