Publisher's Summary

There are so many stories hidden behind closed doors....

It's late at night, and the rain is pouring down on the Dublin city streets. A mother is grieving for her dead child. She stands silently outside the home of the teenage boy she believes responsible. She watches....

In a kitchen on the same square, a girl waits anxiously for her mum to come home. She knows exactly where she is, but she knows she cannot reach her.

A few doors down, and a widow sits alone in her room. She has just delivered a bombshell to her family during dinner, and her life is about to change forever.

And an aspiring theatre director has just moved in to a flat across the street. Her landlord is absent, but there are already things about him that don't quite add up....

Welcome to Primrose Square.

Not for me!

I purchased this because Aoife McMahon is one of my favourite narrators, and also because many negative reviews highlight that the story focuses on relationships and dialogue within them without an exciting direction. I enjoy many books like that. However, it turns out this one is not for me. It’s really chic lit that tries to be more (but fails) with one (out of three) family’s story. Also, Aoife who usually does a splendid job, really fell down on the Florida accent. I kept going for about 2/3 but I’m bored and don’t really care what happens so I am returned it.

Nice, easy listening/reading but lacks ending IMO

I really enjoyed this book: I listened to it with gusto and really enjoyed the story. I found the ending somewhat underwhelming but it didn’t take away from the pleasure of getting to know the characters and their stories.

Woman’s own story

Easy listening stir, thought at one point it had just got good,sadly not. Glad when it was finished. Could have been good though if everyone wasn’t ‘lovely’ and all lived happily ever after.

Time well spent in Primrose Square

I enjoyed my visit to Primrose Square, all characters really came alive and with them a wide range of emotions. It's definitely a book to curl up with, once you start.... its addictive!
