Synopsis

The lives of four very different women have been shaped—and battered—by one charming man. . . .

Ireland's debonair politician Paddy de Courcy—the "John F. Kennedy Jr. of Dublin"—has captured tabloid headlines and the imagination of his country with his charm and charisma. But the crushed hearts he's left behind him reveal more about his character than his winning, votegetting smile. Lola, Grace, Marnie, and Alicia have all suffered from his selfishness and cruelty. But with Paddy's political star ascending, the time is finally ripe for redemption . . . and perhaps a bit of revenge.

I was expecting a breezy summer chick lit novel. What I got was so much more and I was not disappointed.

The Bookbag

Lola's story added a real element of humour to the book which was welcome relief from the tragedy and sorrow of Marnie's story which was a very powerful and humbling read.

Curious Book Fans

Interleaved with the stories of the four lead characters are short vignettes of domestic violence, although in each case we don’t know who the victims or the perpetrators are until nearly the end of the book.
