Reach for the Stars

A novel by


'Absolutely fantastic!... I cannot recommend this book enough!!' Stardust Book Reviews, 5 stars

When Evelyn Dooley married her high-school sweetheart, James, she thought she was set for life. Now she's twenty-eight, single, and fleeing to Dublin from her hometown to avoid the gossip surrounding their break-up. And all because of a test-your-relationship board game.

This was not in her five-year plan.

Then a chance encounter with gorgeous musician Danny leads to an unlikely friendship, and soon the pair are running music nights together in one of the oldest pubs in Dublin. For the first time Evelyn is following her dreams rather than someone else's - and sparks are beginning to fly between her and Danny...

But when her savings run out and home beckons, Evelyn has to choose. The safe, comfortable life she left behind, or a new adventure with Danny? Will Evelyn flee back to the familiarity of her ex, or reach for the stars and take a leap into the unknown?

A laugh-out-loud, feel-good story of friendship, second chances, and romance, perfect for fans of Mhairi McFarlane, Lindsey Kelk and Marian Keyes.

This book was previously published as Reach for the Stars.
