The Brightest Star in the Sky by Marian Keyes
June the first, a bright summer’s evening, a Monday. I’ve been flying over the streets and houses of Dublin and now, finally, I’m here.
Lucy Sullivan is Getting Married by Marian Keyes
When Meredia reminded me that the four of us from the office were due to visit a fortune-teller the following Monday, my stomach lurched slightly with shock.

Let us know your thoughts.
I really enjoyed the Right Sort of Man and have the next two books on reserve at the library. This mystery series is about a marriage bureau in London post World War 2 run by two likeable women, each with troubles in their past.The two Marian Keyes books were interesting, books recommended by my sister. I don’t read a lot of contemporary fiction and as these are very popular, it was interesting to see what must touch a chord with readers. They both are ultimately warmhearted stories with a range of modern characters and they do deal with some very serious topics. I was quite surprised with how waffly they were in parts and I ended up skimming sections, especially in Lucy Sullivan is Getting Married. I think readers might be a lot more forgiving that other writers and, especially, the editors I know.
