"An engrossing read – wonderful.” Maeve Binchy
"Erin Kaye…gave up a career in finance to write, and that, along with her different background, gives her a breadth that many other popular writers here don't have – and makes her one of the best."
- Ann Dunne, Irish Independent Review
“Fresh, funny, utterly absorbing right from the first page and quite unlike anything else out there, Second Time Round is an absolutely must-read for anyone who'd ever thought that it was too late for love. Erin Kaye writes with wisdom, warmth and a lovely lightness of touch you'll adore. Be warned though; it's definitely a stay-up-till-all-hours- to-finish-it book!” Claudia Carroll
A story of family tensions in a small-town rocked by the antics of a cougar.
A heart-warming tale of love in the face of family and friendship, perfect for fans of Cathy Kelly and Maeve Binchy.
Divorcee Jennifer Irwin has it all – a successful interior design business and two loving children. But as her 45th birthday approaches and her children prepare to start their own lives, Jennifer is left feeling lonely in her empty nest.
That’s when she meets Ben Crawford – a man 16 years her junior – as their attraction heightens, Jennifer realises what she’s been missing. But mindful that the small-town Ballyfergus residents would never approve, they conduct their affair in secret.
But a secret is never a secret for long…
As the affair surfaces, Jennifer encounters opposition from friends and family, especially her daughter Lucy. Enraged by her mother’s relationship, Lucy seeks comfort in the arms of charismatic but troubled, Oren. Jennifer knows that Oren is not the man he seems, but can she convince her daughter of that?
And with everything going against them, can Jennifer and Ben’s love survive? Or will she risk losing her daughter to be with the man she loves?
