Not if journalist Grace has anything to do with it. Grace knew Paddy a long time ago. But why can't she forget him? Grace's sister, Marnie, might have the answer but she also has issues with the past. Her family is wonderful but they can't take away memories of her first love: a certain Paddy de Courcy. What will it take for Marnie to be able to move on?
And what of the future Mrs de Courcy? Alicia is determined to be the perfect politician's wife. But does she know the real Paddy de Courcy?
Four very different women. One awfully charming man. And the dark secret that binds them all....

Irritating to listen to I’m 2 chapters in and done
Probably just not my cup of tea or caught me on a bad day, but I can’t listen any more, the story is repetitive, and so lame, the style of writing ; a kind of clipped shorthand doesn’t work with narration for me.
I’ll be returning it for a refund

I was not amused.
Oh dear this really didn't suit me at all. What a waste of money. Bits of it were interesting - but they were few and far between. I didn't like the diary style of writing, or at least not one that needed an entry every few minutes. The Marnie story was just plain boring. Perhaps I would have enjoyed an abridged version more, but I usually enjoy long books, and normally love Marian Keyes work which I find amusing and upbeat in the main. Apart from the diary, it was hard to see where Paddy fitted in. Altogether a depressing book. Not my sort of thing sadly.

Amazing, thoroughly brilliant.
Absolutely amazing stuff. I could hardly believe how much I enjoyed this book. The narration was lively and enjoyable (adorable accents) and the story itself was brilliant. I really do enjoy Marian Keyes' portrayal of strong, smart and yet flawed women. I think that much of her brilliance lies in her ability to pull her reader in with humour, and then deliver her sucker punch. I also liked that it was a big fat long unabridged book - totally creditworthy! :)
