If a straightforward, light, romantic read is what you are after then this will fit the bill perfectly. A couple meet, fall in love and marry in New York within a week and then return to their native Dublin and the shocked friends and family who think this is a holiday romance gone a step too far. Doubts and fears all rise to the surface after the initial wave of euphoric love…..will it all work out in the end? Read and find out.

If you like Sheila O'Flanagan you might also like to read books by Cathy Kelly, Marian Keyes and Clare Dowling.


Too Good To Be True by Sheila O'Flanagan

When Carey Browne decides it's time for a holiday and flies into New York City - one of her favourite shopping destinations - she knows she'll have a good time. What she doesn't know is that she's about to have the biggest adventure of her life. Within days she's met and married Ben Russell, and a week later they're heading back together to Dublin, where they both live, to share the happy news with family and friends.

Except not everyone's thrilled. And not everyone's convinced this is really more than a holiday romance. Carey and Ben are about to discover whether they've found the kind of love that can survive a blast of reality...


'A great read for anyone who has ever been in love - as well as for those still waiting to find it' * Liverpool Echo * 'Leaves you guessing right up to the very last page... Written with her usual sensitivity and sparkling wit, Too Good To Be True is possibly Ms O'Flanagan's best one yet' * Irish Independent *'
