I asked Caroline to tell me her favourite Irish Fiction read:  I have also read this, and loved it.  Ciara is another fab Irish fiction author on the bookshelves of Bleach House Library...



"Ciara Geraghty's Saving Grace was the first book by an Irish author that when I finished I whooped and clapped!! 
On my own in bed for ages!! This book was the reason I attempted to write.
I adore her books and her unique take on simple characters making them special and unique. Ciara's characters live with you for a long time after the last page."

Here is the blurb for Caroline's latest release,  'Already Taken'

Kate Walsh is a proud Dublin Ringsender. A contented, committed loner who lives with Flashdance, the movie, playing in her head. The situation with her sister Ciara is worsening but at long last she has moved out and is ridding herself of her Da and memories of her fractured childhood. 

She has also left what she calls the “brown world of employment” and has created a colourful new job for herself, as an ‘Event Companion’ (definitely not an ‘escort’!). 

One day she could save enough money to find her mother and simply ask, ‘How could you?’ 

Hugh Clover knows he’s on the verge of a nervous breakdown. It was the one aspect of the job he thought he could handle better than most but it turned out he couldn’t. He escapes from London to Dublin to get a sense of her. To punish himself for his horrific mistake. He feels at ease when he walks through her life. Where she grew up. What she liked to do. What she was. What he took away. 

Two people who need to trust, to find each other. Two people who need to take responsibility for the life that is to come, not the one that has been already taken. 

With its gutsy humorous heroine and unflinching look at life’s traumas and unexpected joys, this novel pulls you into its world and holds you to the last page.
