Description

The brand new audiobook from the best-selling author of The Break and The Woman Who Stole My Life.

They're a glamorous family, the Caseys. Johnny Casey, his two brothers Ed and Liam, their beautiful, talented wives and all their kids spend a lot of time together - birthday parties, anniversary celebrations, weekends away. And they're a happy family. Johnny's wife, Jessie - who has the most money - insists on it. 

Under the surface, though, conditions are murkier. While some people clash, other people like each other far too much.... Everything stays under control until Ed's wife Cara, gets concussion and can't keep her thoughts to herself. One careless remark at Johnny's birthday party, with the entire family present, starts Cara spilling out all their secrets. In the subsequent unravelling, every one of the adults finds themselves wondering if it's time - finally - to grow up?

Hm...

I like Marian Keyes in interviews and youtube videos and really enjoyed some of her previous books, so I have been looking forward to this one for a while. Now that I am finished after seventeen hours I am left with very mixed feelings. I don’t want to give spoilers, so I won’t elaborate on my disappointment, but, oh well, I didn’t like the ending of the one relationship I cared about and found some excessively elaborate descriptions and character arcs really dissatisfying. That said, the book is an easy listen and the many hours pass quickly.

Marian never disappoints

As always, listening to Marian was like having a comforting chat with an old friend. This audiobook helped get me through some of the horrendous anxiety of lockdown. Thanks Marian. Your die-hard fan always.

Very disappointing

I tried and tried to finish this book but just couldn't - and after many attempts and re-listening to chapter I still don't know what the point of it was. It was so disconnected and very hard to get into any single part of it with any interest. Don't waste your credits.

Love this book

I'm a big fan of Marion Keyes. She's added a few serious themes to this book, as well as the usual comedy. She's narrated herself.

She did it again!

I have been a Marian Keyes fan since a fellow backpacker gave me Lucy Sullivan is getting married in London in 2000. I have read every book since and buy it without even reading what it’s about. So you know I’m a fan and this might be biased. I discovered Audible only 3 years ago when my son was born. So this was my first MK book on Audible - and read by the author. I LOVED IT. I might never get to Ireland to have lunch with the Keyes family but this felt very close!

Charming, so human and so funny

I am a longtime fan of Marian Keyes’ books but this last one is a “cherry on the top”. Fabulous characters, plot, dialogue and insight from the characters themselves. Best of all was Keyes’ own narration and I’m still laughing from her accent and narration of the ill-fated murder mystery hotel owners!

Love it

I love that Marian read it herself... As always, the characters are so well described and I feel like I am watching a movie. I had to listen to the beginning a few times because of the number of characters but absolutely loved it once I got it... It needs a sequence... I want to know what happened to Liam...

A surrogate family after a few minutes

Everything that makes a Marian Keyes: a great story out the ordinary. Characters that grow on you after a few sentences, plus depth, wit and warmth. Bonus, I love her as the narrator. To me it made the whole book even more grounded, personal and relatable.

Great book - need a new narrator

I loved the story and the way it is written makes you fall in love with each character little by little.
However I could not stand being able to hear the narrator stop and swallow, this made me cringe and I finished the book but would not hear it again, I also found she did not stop enough between paragraph where point of view shifted making it difficult to follow.

Great

Marion Keyes has an amazing voice to listen to.
Her comment about the menopause in the acknowledgements perfect.
