Ever wished you could trade your life in for a better one?
One day, sitting in traffic, married Dublin mum Stella Sweeney attempts a simple good deed. When the result is a terrible car accident, she meets a handsome with a Range Rover who wants her number – no, for insurance purposes – and in this meeting a seed is born which will change Stella’s life forever. What happens next will take Stella thousands of miles from her old life, turning an ordinary woman into a superstar and, along the way, wrenching her whole family apart . . .Was meeting Mr Range Rover destiny or karma? Should she be grateful or just hopping mad? And can Stella grab a chance at real, honest-to-goodness happiness now it finally seems within her reach?
I absolutely love a Marian Keyes book. They’re good for the soul. I mainly read thrillers and in general I don’t really like romantic, comedic books. I make an exception for Marian Keyes! I absolutely loved the sense of humour throughout this book. I love reading Irish authors because they speak the same as I do, have the same humour and I can really engage in their writing. I’m hoping Marian will somehow fit “gomie” into her next book 😂 the story of this was just lovely. I adored Stella. I was really rooting for her the whole way through and wanted to give her husband a good kick up the whole when it came to his treatment of her. Her kids were quirky for sure and Jeffrey could be just mean. I liked her whole family dynamic though. Her sister, Karen, was a bit domineering and Stella was definitely much more of a people pleaser but I liked how as the book went on you could see her speaking up for herself a bit more. Honestly, I only have one Marian Keyes left on my shelf that I haven’t read (Last Chance Saloon) and I’m holding out reading it so I don’t have none of her books to read! Would definitely recommend this, such a well written book. Easy 5/5. @marian_keyes
