Kort biografi
Cathy Kelly was born 12 September 1966 in Belfast, Northern Ireland, but raised in Dublin.

Cathy initially worked for thirteen years as a newspaper journalist with a national Irish Sunday newspaper, where she worked in news, features, along with spending time as an agony aunt and the paper’s film critic. However, her overwhelming love was always fiction and she published her first international bestseller, Woman To Woman, in 1997. She did not become a full-time writer until she had written another two books, and finally decided to leave the world of journalism in 2001, moving to HarperCollins Publishers at the same time. Her trademark is warm story-telling and she consistently tops the bestseller lists around the world with books which deal with themes ranging from relationships and marriage to depression and loss, but always with an uplifting message and strong female characters at the heart.

Cathy also has a passionate interest in children’s rights and is an ambassador for UNICEF Ireland. Her role for UNICEF is a Global Parent, which means raising funds and awareness for children orphaned by or living with HIV/AIDs.

Cathy lives with her husband, John, their twin sons, Dylan and Murray, and their three dogs in Enniskerry, Co Wicklow.

Not as satisfying as Maeve Binchey.

The story had the potential to be a good one, with two likeable and different main characters who both want the same job as a magazine features editor in Dublin.

But there's far too much detail about clothes, appearance and food, and the story moves to the characters' new romantic interludes. Characters change motivations and even some personality traits with some rapidity. The male characters are mostly caricatured, one-dimensional and unrealistic.

I kept reading, sometimes quite compulsively, but overall it was a disappointing book which, a tad ironically, would have benefited from a lot of editing. Not, in my opinion, one of this author's best.

The book features three youngish women, each with problems. One longs for a baby, but with no success. One has two toddlers but is stressed by working full-time in a high-powered office. The third, fresh from college, wants to reform her parents' hotel but nobody else in the family will listen to her.

It was quite confusing at first as the chapters introducing these women were long, and they had nothing to do with each other, other than living in the same town. There's a lot of introspection and talking, and the catalyst for change feels a bit 'deus ex machina'.

I kept reading with mild interest in the stories, but none of the characters grabbed me. Not as good, in my opinion, as others I have read by this author.
