Be Careful What You Wish For
From the author of THREE WISE MEN, a wise, funny and uplifiting novel of women, men, love and friendship.
Have you ever had a secret you couldn't even tell your very best friend?
Molly and Helen have been friends for ever – well, since university in Dublin. Now in their thirties, they have successful careers, go everywhere together, share everything – or so it seems.
Outgoing Molly is wistfully thinking it would be nice to meet a man who'd make her want to bolt to the altar at breakneck speed, when she finds herself juggling two. There's Fionn, her renegade ex, returned from a failed marriage to woo her (to Helen's disapproval), and gorgeous Georgie who runs the local off-licence.
Helen, meanwhile, is steadfastly against long term relationships. So Molly is astonished when Helen confides that she's fallen in love with someone she shouldn't have, so head-over-heels that resistance is futile – but she won't tell Molly who it is.
‘a smartly-observed entertaining examination of friendship, flirting and sex in the capital city’ Irish Independent
‘ A tale of flirting and friendship with an original, if slightly disturbing, twist’ COMPANY
