Product description

Review

Really enjoyable... will keep you guessing right up until the end (Heat (on THINGS WE NEVER SAY))

A very warm and touching book... deserves to be a bestseller (Woman's Way [on BETTER TOGETHER))

Entertains, surprises and provokes (Irish Independent (on ALL FOR YOU))

Romantic and charming, this is a real must-read (Closer (on STAND BY ME))

A big, touching book sure to delight O'Flanagan fans (Daily Mail (on THE PERFECT MAN))

O'Flanagan's lightness of touch and gentle characterisations have produced another fine read; an ideal addition to that summer holiday (Sunday Express (on HOW WILL I KNOW?))

Hugely enjoyable (Best (on ANYONE BUT HIM)) --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Book Description

From Sheila O'Flanagan, the Number One bestselling author of Someone Special and Things We Never Say, comes an unputdownable, heart-searching new novel for every woman who still remembers her first love...

Review: I struggled with this book a little bit. I enjoyed it when I was reading it but It really didn't stick with me and I didn't feel driven to pick it back up again after I'd out it down. I think the premise behind the story is an interesting one, but not much is done with it really. There are some interesting relationships and some interesting friendships but I didn't find any of them sticking in my head and didn't particularly want to find out more about any of them. I just feel a bit like nothing happened in this book, I suppose. Quite clearly things did happen but I feel like it could have been written a lot more dramatically.

Carlotta was an interesting character. I found her very difficult to like. She was pretty indecisive and yet selfish at the same time. She starts off the book with a bang, a big presentation, she is very much career driven and successful and yet she looses this passion and drive somewhere along the course of the novel. I really didn't like her fiancé and couldn't see how they got together in the first place, they didn't seem compatible and the other love interest in the story had been a childhood sweetheart but now I couldn't see how he was going to fit into Carlotta's life. Her best friend is also fairly dislikalble although she does make Carlotta see sense in the end and so I am grateful for that.

There are some interesting scenes in the book, Carlotta does go through a stage where she rediscovers her drive for work and sorts her life out a bit but these are peppered with little anecdotes that I don't think really gave anything towards the storyline. I enjoyed the ending but just wished the book could've been a little more like the ending rather than sort of meandering it's way there via a series of linked events and semi-interesting flashbacks. This book wasn't really for me but wouldn't stop me picking up another book by this author again.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Carlotta , or Lottie or Carly depending on who she is with is a career driven woman working as a consultant at a high powered firm in Dublin.

She is engaged to Chris, an eye surgeon, they are getting married in a few months, but chris's mother dorothea hates lottie.

Lottie is sent on a business trip to seville, where quite by chance she literally walks into the childhood love of her life Luke Evans.

She ends up spening a day and night with him in seville just having fun, drinking and dancing, the following morning he takes her to the train station and when she is about to leave he kisses her and lotties world is suddenly changed forever.

I dont want to say more because it will spoil the book for you, but i can tell you that after reading the negative reviews others had left i took this out into the garden on a gorgeous sunny september day and started reading, 5 hours later as i turned the final page, i realised my garden was freezing cold and i had not put the book down.

Really spoke to me for some reason, however i did not like the ending, the author made a big deal in the prior pages about lottie being independent and stubborn and not needing anyone and she then writes that ending? As a femininist it didnt sit right with me, and i personally would of changed it, however it does not detract from my score because i thoroughly enjoyed it.

By Marand TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 30 Jan. 2017
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
It is a very long time since I read a book this bad. This is the first novel by Sheila Flanagan I have read, and it will be the last, notwithstanding that I have another one on my kindle, which I bought on the basis of the blurb. The blurb of 'If You Were Me' sounded good too but I was getting irritated by page two and fifty pages in was seriously considering giving up (something I very rarely do). By page 136 I could take no more of the tedious, mindless drivel and there were still another 350 pages to go.

I was bored by the endless and utterly pointless detail e.g. a description of a suitcase - who cares? Equally, there is a description of various homes to various characters, referencing locations which is irrelevant to the majority of readers who will know nothing about the residential districts of Dublin. Even going to the shops for a bottle of milk comes with a lengthy aside about milk not coming in bottles. Do we really need to know that a sensor light comes on in a hallway? None of this irrelevant detail added anything but verbiage. I rapidly came to the conclusion that the author is incapable of using one word where one hundred will do and that there is nothing so minute, so banal, so mundane that she can't leave it out. I can't believe the editor didn't take the scissors to all this tedious & irrelevant detail.

The characters were totally unbelievable too. Vapid Carlotta as some high-flying management consultant is beyond ridiculous; she is by turns silly and pathetic with no decision-making skills to speak of. The plot wasn't convincing either, based on a coincidence that just wasn't believable.
