Publisher's Summary

Aisling is 28, and she’s a complete...Aisling. She lives at home in Ballygobbard (or Ballygobackwards, as some gas tickets call it) with her parents and commutes to her good job at PensionsPlus in Dublin. Aisling goes out every Saturday night with her best friend, Majella, who is a bit of a hames (she’s lost two phones already this year - Aisling has never lost a phone). They love hoofing into the Coors Light if they’re 'Out' or the vodka and Diet Cokes if they’re 'Out Out'. 

Aisling spends two nights a week at her boyfriend John’s. He’s from down home and was kiss number 17 at her 21st. But Aisling wants more. She wants the ring on her finger. She wants the hen with the willy straws. She wants out of her parents’ house, although she’d miss Mammy turning on the electric blanket like clockwork and Daddy taking her car 'out for a spin' and bringing it back full of petrol. 

When a week in Tenerife with John doesn’t end with the expected engagement, Aisling calls a halt to things, and soon she has surprised herself and everyone else by agreeing to move into a three-bed in Portobello with stylish Sadhbh from HR and her friend, the mysterious Elaine. Newly single and relocated to the big city, life is about to change utterly for this wonderful, strong, surprising and funny girl, who just happens to be a complete Aisling.

Very Irish and funny

Narrator was Irish and was really great! It was a bit like an Irish Bridget Jones!

Funny and observant, but very cliched at times

A good story that doesn’t necessarily take the path you expected. Funny and sad at times. Observant, but cliched and quite stereotyped characters in places. Great narration.

A great listen

This book is fab!

I usually find a sole narrator quite monotonous but Amy McAllister is superb at bringing the different characters to life.

The story keeps you interested throughout and has a good combination of humour and substance.

I would definitely recommend it!

OMG - absolutely loved it!

this book surprised me, wasn't a book I'd have picked but was my Book Club selection. I'm from Ireland so it resonated a lot with me as Aishling is SOOO country Irish! I laughed and cried no end reading it - a tonic!

My favourite book in a long time.

A great story well written and made come to life on Audible appropriately with an Irish accent. Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant, when’s the sequel due?
