Publisher's Summary

The lives of four very different women have been shaped - and battered - by one charming man…

Ireland's debonair politician Paddy de Courcy - the "John F. Kennedy Jr. of Dublin" - has captured tabloid headlines and the imagination of his country with his charm and charisma. But the crushed hearts he's left behind him reveal more about his character than his winning, vote-getting smile. Lola, Grace, Marnie, and Alicia have all suffered from his selfishness and cruelty. But with Paddy's political star ascending, the time is finally ripe for redemption…and perhaps a bit of revenge.

    "My favourite Marian Keyes book"

    A wonderful, funny, heart-wrenching story with a cast of characters that end up feeling like dear friends. I highly recommend this book.

    Story
    "I just don't get it"

    What is with the crazy shorthand way of speaking in the first four chapters? It's so very annoying to listen to. Has Lola never heard of using a preposition? A pronoun? What was the author thinking? Example, "Just goes show looks aren't everything", or "Is quite large size but will see what can do."

    And, I've only listened to the first four chapters, but toward of the end of the fourth chapter, all of a sudden the narration changes from the first to the third person. And it seems to be a totally different story.

    Toward the end of the fourth chapter Lola is talking with Noel about helping him "track down clothes in difficult to find sizes", and in mid-sentence, it changes to a discussion in the third person with totally different characters. I kept going back, thinking there was some sort of problem with my computer.

    Is this an error with the Audible version? Or is it supposed to make no sense?

    Highly recommend you not waste your credits.
