The O’Hara Affair

By Kate Thompson

If only real life was like the movies…

In the idyllic village of Lissamore on the West Coast of Ireland, flirty Fleur O’Farrell has what seems to be a perfect life. She has the savoir-faire, the wardrobe, and her very own Mr. Big. But Fleur also has a big heart, which leads to big trouble.

When she meets a young girl whose love-life is a mess, Fleur finds herself proffering advice anonymously, via the internet. And there Fleur uncovers a dark side to her bright life upon which she’d really rather not turn the spotlight…

Meanwhile, Dervla Vaughn (nee Kinsella) also appears to be living the dream. However, with her husband working away more often than he’s at home, life suddenly doesn’t seem so rosy: especially when compared with the upwardly mobile career of Dervla’s sister Río, who has access all areas on The O’Hara Affair – a movie based on the life of Scarlett O’Hara’s Irish family, currently being filmed in Lissamore.

Left to take care of a mother-in-law suffering from dementia, and with her once-enviable life now a thing of shreds and patches, Dervla soldiers on, but realises that things have spiralled out of control when her thoughts begin to turn murderous…

Join The Kinsella Sisters once again, along with a host of new characters, as they prove that sometimes even the most perfect of lives can be anything but easy…
