About the Book
Twenty-something Aisling – that’s pronounced Ashling – is the sensible sort.
She wears kitten heels for the sake of her arches.
And a great night out is knowing the immersion heater at home is securely switched off.
In other words, country girl Aisling likes to play it safe in the big city.
But that hasn’t helped get her man John to hurry up and pop the question.
Throwing caution to the wind an impatient Aisling tries to encourage him, only for her whole life to come crashing down.
Now no umbrella, electric blanket, nor sensibly sized heel can save her.
What’s a complete Aisling to do?
With thanks to the publisher for the copy received. Sometimes a humorous, life warming novel is just what I need and Aisling delivered everything. She is a country girl, the daughter of a farmer who is successful in her job in the city. Some good friends, both in the city and at home and she is in a long-term relationship with her boyfriend. But she wants to be married and he doesn’t. When they go their separate ways, Aisling sees a side to life that she didn’t expect to. She discovers that you can go on holiday without military planning, you can go out for a drink during the week and occasionally have to park without a permit.
She is a lovely character and I can’t think of a think to dislike about her. Devoted to her family, a stickler for routine and cleanliness. Leaving the lights on in an unoccupied room is terrible and she is devoted to the points that different food has in her slimming club. Her observations on different people combined with a sweet naiveté was just lovely. There is humour, her observation on her father’s obsession with buying things on special offer that he doesn’t need from a well-known supermarket and also sadness when she has to deal with loss.
I would love to meet Aisling again, she seems like a nice person to know.
