A nice piece of Chick Lit about a Dublin woman who escapes her tragic life by getting drunk and getting on a bus to Limerick. She gets off the bus at Kilbrody and reinvents herself finding a new job, new love and new perspective. ( )

A young woman from the city, overcome by the joint effects of a bum-romance and more than one too many drinks, wakes to find herself adopted by the locals. A funny, contemporary novel set in the Irish countryside that also manages to deal intelligently with the themes of alcoholism and bereavement. A nice companion to McLynn’s excellent Leo Street mystery series.

Really enjoyed reading this book told through a range of characters. The story unfolds initially through Charlie, who runs Finn's pub in Kilbrody when a woman arrives in his pub off a bus with no idea of how she got there or who she is. She's been on the Dublin bus and it isn't until the wicked bus driver returns back on the route a few days later that all is revealed. We also meet a range of characters who tell their story such as Joyce and Tom Long as well as their daughter Cathy who form a big part of the narrative. Ozzy O'Reilly keeps a watchful eye on the community through his binoculars and we find out the goings on through him. Eventually we find out everything about the woman on the bus and a wonderful story continually unfolds as she settles into the Kilbrody community. A lovely read and I can see why the blurb refers to Marian Keyes and Maeve Binchy. Overall, a funny yet moving love story set amongst some wonderful scenery. ( )

An enjoyable read about a woman who is trying to find out her true feelings about love and life. She finds herself in a small rural community where everyone living there has their own demons that they need to lay to rest. The author brings the many characters personalities to life - an enjoyable, light hearted read. ( )
