LoveReading View on Bright Lights and Promises

As Mrs Doyle in Father Ted Pauline McLynn made us roll around laughing and as a novelist she has the same gift. This is a comedy, family drama and romantic novel all rolled in to one told with warmth and wit and perfect to settle down with on a cold winter evening.

Bright Lights and Promises Synopsis

It's not easy being the mother of a twelve-year-old boy who's in love with his babysitter and having trouble at school. Nor are matters helped by the unexpected arrival of an elderly mother who's suddenly footloose and fancy free. At least Susie feels secure at Arland & Shaw, London's leading theatrical agency, where her clients love her almost as much as they love themselves. But then the man who broke her heart comes back into her life and she's forced to ask herself whether she was right to leave him all those years ago. Or is the man for her waiting in the wings elsewhere...?
