The O’Hara Affair

By Kate Thompson

If only real life was like the movies…

Fleur O’Farrell seems to have the perfect life.
Living in the idyllic village of Lissamore on Ireland’s West Coast, she has her own vintage clothes business as well as her very own Mr. Big. But when she starts to proffer anonymous advice via the internet to a young girl with a tangled love-life, Fleur’s big heart leads to big trouble, as this act of kindness uncovers a darker side to her charmed life…

Similarly, newly-wed Dervla Vaughn appears to be living the dream. However, with husband Christian working away more often than he’s at home, there’s trouble in paradise. Left alone to care for her demanding mother-in-law, Dervla wonders how her once-enviable life changed beyond all recognition… Surely married life should be blissful, not stressful?

Meanwhile, the once-sleepy Lissamore is now a whirlwind of activity as the The O’Hara Affair is filmed in its picturesque surroundings. And with many locals being seduced by the glamour of the movies, who knows what could happen…

Take a trip to heavenly Lissamore in this warm, witty read that will pull at the heartstrings.
