Blurb from back of book

 

The Devlin sisters rely on each other – but some things are just too painful to share, even when your sisters are your best friends …

Mum-of-four Julie thought that if her family had more money, life would be easier. But now that they’ve inherited a fortune, her problems are only starting.

Lawyer Louise is used to having life go exactly as she wants it to. So accepting that she cannot control everything in her world is beyond her.

And former model Sophie can just about cope with getting older – that’s until her ex-husband finds a younger model.

All three women think that some battles are best fought alone. Maybe they need to think again …

 

My Review

 

I love my crime and thriller novels, but I also like my chick lit. And this book is the perfect chick lit for a nice light read that leaves you feeling warm inside.

This is the 10th book by Sinead Moriarty but the first one of hers that I have read. I have heard that it’s a second book, carry on from another book of Sinead’s, but I never knew this while reading it and you definitely don’t have to read the one before this to enjoy it, it’s a great stand alone too.

It tell’s the story of three sisters – Julie, Louise and Sophie. each chapter takes the view point from each sister, which I really liked. Julie and her husband, Harry have 4 boys, 3 of them are 9 year old triplets and they have just inherited a big sum of money from Harry’s auntie. Louise is a strong independent business women with a 4 year old child, Clara, who she finds out she as Aspergers and has to learn to cope that her daughter wont live the life Louise had planned for her. And Sophie is a divorcee with a 9 year old daughter and finding it hard to live with the fact the her ex-husband is now with a younger model who is now pregnant and who her daughter idolises.

This was a great read and really heart felt tale of 3 sisters who were at first ashamed and scared of admitting to each other how they really felt. But they finally realize that no one is perfect and that they will always have each other.

4/5 stars – I’ll be reading more from this author

 

About the Author

From Goodreads:

Sinéad was born and raised in Dublin where she grew up surrounded by books. Her mother is an author of children’s books. Growing up, Sinead says she was inspired by watching her mother writing at the kitchen table and then being published. From that moment on, her childhood dream was to write a novel.

After university, she went to live in Paris and then London. It was at the age of thirty, while working as a journalist in London that she began to write creatively in her spare time – after work, at lunch times … and, truth be told, during work hours.

After a couple of years toying with ideas, she joined a creative writing group and began to write The Baby Trail. The bitter-sweet comedy of a couple struggling to conceive hit a nerve in publishing circles. It was snapped up by Penguin Publishing in the UK and Ireland and has, to date, been translated into twenty languages.

Since writing The Baby Trail, Sinead has moved back to Dublin where she lives with her husband, two sons and baby girl.
