Three years later Geogia is a teenager full of questions about boys and love. Claire decides that she can't really answer her question properly and so decides to start dating again for research to help her daughter. What she didn't expect was to enjoy socialising and getting her life back together without Bill.
This book is Sheila O'Flannigan at her best. The book dealt with this subject in a sensitive but also a lighthearted way. I really would recommend this book to anyone, you really will enjoy it.
Overall the book is a good for the beach when you have plenty of time to just sit and read.
But, the writing was good, I cared about the young mother and her fears, although she was maybe a bit wimpish for me. Of course, I didn't lose my husband at thirty-four or so, it is easier to hero-worship someone taken in their prime and I really didn't think the disclosure of his injuries near the end added anything to the story. There were some humorous moments, and the teenager was drawn very well. All in all, it was worth reading and I would try another by this author. A bit deeper than a Katie Fforde, but not in the same class as a Joanna Trollope on Annie Sanders.
That said, it’s a light and easy read, though it’s certainly not top notch O’Flanagan. She’s written better stories. The problems for me were the rather irritating perfection of the dead husband, as I simply didn’t believe they were soulmates from the age of 14 and our heroine never needed to explain things to him as he was so in tune with her. Harrumph! It all sounds very unlikely to me. I also didn’t really get any spark between the heroine and her new potential boyfriend. Yes, they get together in the end (after a fashion), as you’d expect in a romance novel, but I wasn’t that bothered about them.
I was far more gripped by the story of Eavan, the best friend, and her husband, and how they deal with living with alcoholism and redundancy. It was far more interesting, and with a better plot line. I also loved Claire's daughter, Georgia, and felt she deserved her own stand-alone novel for sure. The scene where she’s far more aware of dating etiquette than her mother was expertly done.
So, all in all, not vintage O’Flanagan but, as I say, it’s easy reading.
