Book Description

Times are hard in the village of Lissamore on Ireland's West Coast. So it's lucky that free-spirited Cat Gallagher knows a thing or two about breaking and entering. When her beloved houseboat burns down she finds herself eyeing up the abandoned Villa which seems to suit her purposes admirably. But when a mystery buyer turns up, Cat is in a quandary.

She needs money, a roof over her head and for the first time in her life Cat needs a helping hand...Rio Kinsella is also in a predicament. She is in possession of a secret that has the potential to transform not only her own life, but the lives of those dearest to her. Before long, Rio finds herself lost in a labyrinth of lies, deceit and good intentions gone wrong. Can the two women find a way through their problems?

That Gallagher Girl takes us back to the wonderful world of Lissamore with another heart-warming tale filled with a wonderful cast of characters. Full of tears and laughter it is the perfect read for fans of Cathy Kelly and Maeve Binchy.

      Comments about That Gallagher Girl:

      Characters in this book are obviously carried over from previous books from this author however this was the first one I had read. Still a very enjoyable light read in its own right and left me thinking I might seek out the other books before it.

              Received as a free book, so happy to get a novel that is out of my usual genre, but when you reach only the second page and the main character says "Yikes", that's where the novel ended for me.
              Not believable dialogue unless you are Enid Blyton and it is 1950.
              Sorry but couldn't read any further.

                    I felt the character catgirl was far fetched and I didn't identify with her at all.

Marian Keyes Praise for Kate Thompson: 'Sublimely addictive' MARIAN KEYES 'Warm, witty, sexy and compulsively readable' CATHY KELLY 'A warm and witty read' CLOSER 'Irresistible' DEIRDRE PURCELL 'Kate Thompson has come up trumps with this rollercoaster of a story.

RTE GUIDE PRAISE FOR THE O'HARA AFFAIR: 'A lovely country yarn.' Irish Sunday Independent 'An inspiring read, would recommend to anyone looking for a good laugh and a good cry all rolled into one.' Closer Magazine 'A charming novel which is both refreshing and entertaining.' Ulster Tatler 'A good read.' Irish Independent 'A refreshing read; it is modern, irreverent at times and witty.'
