Fans of Maeve Binchy will love the number-one best seller Roisin Meaney and this heartwarming story of love, friendship and fate set on Roone, a small island off the west coast of Ireland....

Nell Mulcahy grew up on the island, so when the old stone cottage by the edge of the sea went up for sale, the decision to move back from Dublin was easy. 

But when Nell decides to rent out her cottage for the summer to help raise money her forthcoming wedding to Tim, she's unprepared for what's about to happen....

As she welcomes holiday-makers to her cottage, Nell must face some truths: about her upcoming wedding to Tim and her friendship with his brother, James. 

And, meanwhile, her father delivers some astounding news which leaves Nell, her mother and the island reeling. 

But will Nell make it down the aisle? 

One thing's for sure, it's a summer on the island that nobody will ever forget.

First Time reader of Roisin Meaney

My first book by this reader and it certainly won’t be my last. I didn’t want it to end but I did also I loved this book. The story wasbeautiful .Roone was beautiful. I want live there with those wonderfully warm people with the soft Irish lilt My only complaint was also stated by a previous reader, it was sometimes hard to distinguish who was talking because everyone sounds the same. Having said that the narrator did read it beautifully with her soft easy to listen to voice. I would highly recommend.

Very sweet Irish romance.

Words that make you homesick for a place you’ve never lived and for people you have never met. A wonderful story of love lost and found. Reminds me of a young Maeve B. Hopeful and well told stories with great character development. All tied up with a neat bow.

Only challenge with audio book was knowing who was speaking what line. Narrator was great but reading dialog for males and females and all characters must have been a challenge that she met well but...not a deal breaker. Would listen again :)

Narration was awful! Story great.

The book and story were lovely and light hearted. Made me want to visit the island of Roon!
Nothing too heavy, just simple escapism.

The narration was all wrong, punctuation was ignored and generally made listening very difficult.

Can’t understand the need for OTT weddings!

I nearly didn’t keep reading as the first part was about wedding preparation and the importance of it being spectacular and costly.
However the characters and the island made the story so much better and kept me reading.
The setting was lovely.
Island living is not for everyone though.
If you want to be unnoticed- forget it.
