It all started with a bottle of Baileys that was a year out of date but I drank it anyway . . . One minute, well, Friday night, you're in a long-term if long-distance relationship with the perfect Shane. The next, Saturday morning, you're waking up in bed with the mother of all hangovers . . . and Bernard O'Malley, newest member of the I.T. department. Another entry on the list of things you can't forgive yourself for. The worst is Spain. What you did there. And what happened to your brother. Ever since then, life has slowly spiralled out of control.You dust yourself down, have a cigarette and pull on your stiletto boots. But you know that something's got to give. You just hope it's not the zip on your skinny jeans . . .
A hilarious and touching debut with an unforgettable heroine whom every reader will identify with

'This laugh out loud page-turner is full of characters you long to know . . . This delicious debut cannot fail to enchant the young, and the young at heart.' * Irish Examiner * 'A touching story of a flawed but loveable heroine' * U magazine * 'Debut poignant chick-lit with bite, a charming heroine, addictive style, and a sensitive plot full of guilt, misunderstandings and lots of heart. Nice one' * Bookseller * Move over Marian, it's Ciara . . . impressive and highly entertaining [with] one of the most authentic female characters I've read in women's fiction for a long time . . . lots of biting humour and a darker side beneath the laughs. * Irish Independent Review * Perfect pace and plenty of banter help Geraghty's debut hit the right balance between hilariously funny and poignant . . . accessible and charming. * Image, Ireland * 'Hilarious . . . But there's death and guilt, too, in this sometimes dark, tear-jerking novel' **** * Company * So funny and so much fun, it's impossible to believe it's Geraghty's first . . . Warm , moving and hilarious. * Evening Herald, Ireland * 'I loved this . . . it's warm, funny and made me cry (a couple of times). It is also really well written . . . Perfect for a summer's day with not much else on since you'll want to read it in one sitting' * Sara Lawrence, Daily Mail *
