As an avid Sheila O'Flanagan fan I was extremely disappointed with this book. It was far too long and to be honest I found it
really boring - not a great story line and a bad ending. For the first time ever I found myself skimming over the pages as I
couldn't wait to get to the end of the book. Not up to her usual brilliant standards ......Hopefully her next book will have her back at the top of the Best Sellers list where she belongs.

I have read every one of Sheila O'Flanagan's books and have enjoyed every single one of them. This seemed like a different type of book, and with a subject matter that many can empathise with. Deanna Ryan is a character that takes a while to connect with. After the initial first few chapters are read, you begin to get an idea of the bigger picture in the lives of the Ryan women. Lainey on the other hand is a wonderful character that you instantly love. She is the very successful weather presenter, as well as being a hopeless romantic. How the two women are mother and daughter is a mystery in the beginning of the book.

However, as you read on, you learn a little about Lainey's current life, the decisions she makes and the hopes that she has for herself. Alongside this element of the story, we see the build up and history of Deanna's life and the story that led to Lainey being brought up by her Grandmother Madeleine. The mixture of past and present was cleverly done and everything builds up to create the full picture.

The romantic element of the story is actually not that important in the grand scheme of things as the main focus is on the family element. Deanna was a hard character to get to know, she seemed intent on being only good at one thing and that was women's rights. As I read on I found myself disliking her even more, but thankfully as I neared the middle I started to see the reasoning behind her actions.

The book is featured in two main settings, one being Ireland where Lainey lives and works and the other being California, which is where Deanna lives. I loved the switch between the two places as it kept it interesting. I began to feel more involved in the story as you realise there is a lot more than meets the eye to the story of Lainey and Deanna's life.

This was my first Sheila O'Flanagan and I thought the synopsis sounded very good. The front cover is very pretty and attracted me to the book.

It was a real struggle to get into - I just don't care about weather that much! I also thought all the men who were supposed to be irresistable, had bad names (Ken, Ron, Dennis?) I very nearly gave up as in the first 50 pages nothing happens. I decided to keep going and see if it got better.

It does. I found myself getting more into it and really liking the main character, Lainey. It was nice how the book went from the present day and to the past. I was very interested to find out about Lainey's dad and all the mystery surrounding him (I didn't guess what it might be).

The issues I had with the book were that I couldn't stand Deanna. She was just a pain and incredibly selfish. I didn't have any problem with her feminist attitude but I don't think it came over very well - it just seemed to be her forcing it onto the other characters and the reader. At times I wasn't sure where we were or what time it was. This gave the book a somewhat disorientated feel. Also, there were a few mistakes in the book - at one point she tells Shay she isn't working the next day but then phones Ken the next day, on her break from work?! Things like that really annoy me.

I read the book quite quickly and I quite liked the ending. I think O'Flanagan wanted to show us that Lainey had come a long way and she didn't need to tie it all up for the reader.

An ok read but nothing fantastic. I've heard this isn't her best work so I will try another of her novels just to see.

This is the first Sheila O'Flanagan I ever read. It will also be the last. I found it really dull and I didn't like any of the characters so I didn't care what happened to them.

The main character, Lainey, is a meteorologist who is obsessed with the weather and talks about it incessantly - even in bed with her boyfriend. The only thing she really thinks about, apart from the weather, is getting married. She seems to consider marrying every man she meets.
Her estranged mother, Deanna, is a humourless, belligerent feminist who delivers a lecture on women's issues every time she opens her mouth.
I really didn't want to spend any time with either of these women but I skim-read to the end of the book just to see if it got any better. It didn't. Lainey keeps droning on about the weather all the way through and her mother keeps haranguing everyone about feminism - even seeing her own mother baking is enough to set her off on a rant at one point.
The whole thing is very tedious and nothing really happens. The ending is so underwhelming I thought the author must have hit her word count target and just stopped writing. I also found the little weather factoids at the beginning of each chapter meaningless and irritating.
What most baffled me about this book was the fact that it was a number one bestseller. I can only suppose that Sheila O'Flanagan has a lot of loyal fans by now who will read anything she writes but I don't think she'll be picking up any new ones with this drivel.
Finally a safety warning. I know no chicklit book is complete at the moment without cupcakes having their part in the story but it really isn't a good idea to give them to a diabetic.
