CHARLIE REGAN'S LIFE ISN'T GOING FORWARD, SO SHE'S DECIDED TO GO BACK. 'A gorgeous exploration of the messy and fragile nature of friendship and all the many forms of love, as well as of the primal need we all have to belong' IRISH TIMES * 'A perfect page-turner. I loved it' DOLLY ALDERTON * 'Wonderful' MARIAN KEYES * After a tough few years floundering around the British film industry, experimenting with amateur pornography and watching her father's health rapidly decline, Charlie and her best friend Laura journey to her ancestral home of Clipim, an island off the west coast of Ireland. She knows this could be the last chance to connect with her dad's history before she loses him. But when the girls arrive, Charlie begins to question both her difficult relationship with Laura and her father's childhood stories. Before long, she's embroiled in a devastating conspiracy that's been sixty years in the making . . . and it's up to her to reveal the truth. 'One of the most intelligent, well observed depictions of lust, loss, envy, betrayal, friendship and love that I've ever read' DAISY BUCHANAN 'A moving and extremely funny look at family, roots and the myth of Irishness' THE i, ESSENTIAL SUMMER READS 'Witty, tender and insightful . . . O'Donoghue is a perceptive, clever writer' GUARDIAN 'A darkly humorous, keenly observed blend of millennial drift and murder mystery from a razor-sharp writer' RED

'So brilliant . . . It couldn't really be more timely . . . I highly recommend it' DOLLY ALDERTON 'I loved it. The writing is whipsmart and so witty' MARIAN KEYES Jane Peters is an adrift twenty-something by day, and a world-weary agony aunt by night. But when an office party goes too far, Jane dissolves into the high-stakes world of being the Other Woman: a role she has the right advice for, but not the smarts to follow through on. What starts out as a drunken mistake quickly unravels as Jane discovers that sex and power go hand-in-hand, and that it's hard to keep your head when you've become someone else's dirty little secret. And soon, her friendships, her sanity and even her life are put into jeopardy... 'Sharp, pithy and engaging' IRISH TIMES 'Brilliant' ELLE 'Deeply relatable and darkly comic . . . It'll have you nodding with familiarity, thinking, laughing - and crying - as you race towards the end' GRAZIA 'A future classic' JANE CASEY AN Post Irish Book Awards Shortlisted - Sunday Independent Newcomer of the Year
