Publisher's Summary

When Evelyn Dooley married her high school sweetheart James, she thought she was set for life. Now she’s 28, single, and fleeing to Dublin from her hometown to avoid the gossip surrounding their breakup...all because of a test-your-relationship board game. 

This was not in her five-year plan. Then, a chance encounter with gorgeous musician, Danny, leads to an unlikely friendship, and soon the pair are running music nights together in one of the oldest pubs in Dublin. For the first time, Evelyn is following her dreams rather than someone else’s - and sparks are beginning to fly between her and Danny. 

But when her savings run out and home beckons, Evelyn has to choose between the safe, comfortable life she left behind and a new adventure with Danny. Will Evelyn flee back to the familiarity of her ex or take a leap into the unknown? 

A laugh-out-loud, feel-good story of friendship, second chances and romance that’s perfect for fans of Mhairi McFarlane, Lindsey Kelk and Marian Keyes. The printed version of this audiobook was previously published as Reach for the Stars.

surprisingly enjoyable

This was a book club selection (not picked or voted in by me) and I'm not into romance novels but I loved it! Probably because it's not a romance novel (not how I perceive them anyway, overly hot and steamy). I also tend to not like more modern authors because they seem to have cookie cutter stories where they check off every damn special interest group so everyone can feel good about themselves championing "inclusion". Bleah. The moderns also have unrealistic characters that are beyond good or beyond bad with nothing in between. I felt the characters and story was pretty believable here and nothing cookie cutter about it. A fun story without a ton of predictability and eye rolling on the reader's part.

Fun Romantic Comedy

I loved this book. It was wonderful to escape from the usual book club picks. The audible performance was very well done. The beautiful Irish accents were lovely to hear, and sounded much better than they do in my head. The story moves at a quick pace yet provides plenty of detail and back story. The setting is an important character all its own and the author developed and included it so well. This is the perfect book to take with you on vacation.

Such a sweet story!

This was a sweet story full of hope and encouragement. It shows how much more there is to having a fulfilling life if we break out of our comfort zones even in the midst of personal fears and failure.

The most sickly sweet thing I've ever red...

I'm not sure what makes this book so very... non-exiting... things do happen there, and the narrator is ok... but all the "deep philosophy" and the thoughts of the heroine are pure cliches and at the end it feels like you have been force-fed with syrup...
