Anyone who's a fan of Maeve Binchy will love this author!
A follow on from the novel "A Taste for It", this book follows the trials and tribulations of an Irish girl holidaying in Australia and the people she meets along the way. I'll say no more

This wasn't the best book that i have ever read, but oh how i enjoyed it!

The story follows Eva, a failed artist who has a break in Australia from her job in her uncle's delicatessen because of an ended romance and some rather large questions she has to answer; and Joseph, who is a successful business man on a business trip in Australia, questioning whether he's really living `The Dream'. Their paths intercept and they are swept up in an unusual, frustrating romance where the truth feels like it might break them apart.

From page one of this book, i was hooked. The story was lighthearted, romantic and yet kept me on edge. I couldn't read it fast enough - a definite page turner. It was refreshing to not read something completely predictable (i mean, the gist of it might be but there are some books that you just know every twist and turn that's going to happen, like every twist and turn). And Monica writes really well. It was really nice to read a book where you aren't faulting the author on their writing skills. I might sound like i am being really bias here, however these are the reasons why she is one of my favourite authors. I knew i could rely on her for a great read. And what's more she has her more in depth books if you want some more hardcore emotion and then she has her lighthearted books, which was just what i needed. I read this in less than a day, and it's not like The Lord of The Rings but it wasn't ridiculously short either (forty chapters).

There were some sexual references, however i didn't find them too much. They got to the line and then didn't cross it (another reason why i like Monica McInerney).

I do admit that the story was frustrating at times - at one point i exclaimed, "Just tell the truth already!" however it didn't go past the point where you couldn't handle it anymore. Almost, but not quite.

I would definitely recommend this book if you are looking for a funny, lighthearted romance.

There is something about most Monica McInerney novels that hooks me in from the first page. This one is no exception. It could be the humour with which she deals with relationships or the fact that most of us can identify with her characters' situations, but she weaves plots and characters seamlessly into a whole.

As soon as I started to read I knew that I liked Eva. Even though I quickly realised what was going to happen, I just had to keep going and really did not want it to end.
Lovely!
