Praise for Clare Dowling: 'Sparkling and witty...a great beach read (Irish Tatler)
Commercial fiction at its most entertaining (Marian Keyes, nominating EXPECTING EMILY as one of her favourite books of 2001)
Very warm, very funny...witty and refreshingly honest (Irish World)
What sets this apart is the quality of the writing. It is great fun, a great read (RTE)
Dowling has an adept touch for light and warm-hearted women's fiction. She has a likeable tone and warm, funny characters and is similar in style to Marian Keyes... wonderfully entertaining (Sunday Tribune)
A hilarious, honest and warm story about modern marriage and divorceSee all Product description

This is a slightly odd mix of light chick-lit with something emotionally deeper at its heart. Henry starts off as a fascinating character but sadly descends into something far more familiar (and an extremely bad poet too!). Jackie is the classic chick-lit heroine, needy, emotionally rash, vulnerable etc etc. The sub-plots of her Irish family were dull and distracting, and the ending clearly predictable. Sadly Dowling shows the promise of writing something far mature around the Henry character but instead settles for the commercial and easy. This could have been so much better than it is.
It only just missed out on five stars because I felt the writing was a bit rushed at times. Still well worth a read x
It's very well written, with cracking dailogue and I would highly recommend any books by this excellent author.
