Not my favourite Keyes novel, but a fun read nonetheless. The main problem is that it takes the book quite a while to reach cohesion. The individual storylines of the three women - Lisa, Ashling, and Clodah (who no one ever seems to call "Princess" - are mildly interesting, but until they actually start interacting with eachother and with others, the story doesn't really hold together. Once it does, though, it picks up speed. The book description is a little bit misleading, as there's certainly no bonding between the three of them and not much bonding between the two of them, plus the end result is that some un-bonding actually occurs.

I liked this book much more than I expected - the characters are sweet and real, and I ended up quite fond of most of them!

I picked this book up on a recommendation and for the life of me I just couldn't get into it. I read the first 100 pages or so and it just didn't do it for me. Although I've heard great reviews about this author, she just wasn't for me.

Lisa Edwards

This Prada-wearing magazine editor thinks her life is over when her "fabulous" new job turns out to be a deportation to Dublin to launch Colleen magazine. The only saving grace is that her friends aren't there to witness her downward spiral. Might her new boss, the disheveled and moody Jack Devine, save her from a fate worse than hell?

Ashling Kennedy

Ashling, Colleen's assistant editor, is an award-winning worrier, increasingly aware that something fundamental is missing from her life -- apart from a boyfriend and a waistline.

Clodagh "Princess" Kelly

Ashling's best friend, Clodagh, lives the domestic dream in a suburban castle. So why, lately, has she had the recurring urge to kiss a frog -- or sleep with a frog, if truth be told? As these three women search for love, success, and happiness, they will discover that if you let things simmer under the surface for too long, sooner or later they'll boil over.

Discover the Keyes to a Great Read!
