Once, Twice, Three Times an Aisling

book | Fiction | Sep 2019

Aisling’s turning 30, and she’s still a complete Aisling.

Business is booming at her café BallyGoBrunch, her best friend Majella is expecting the hen of the century, while Aisling is in the throes of a fling with the handsome and mannerly blow-in James Matthews. Life is all go.

When the big birthday hits, Aisling is faced with a huge surprise and an unexpected decision.

Throw in a hapless wedding planner, a mysterious American visitor, the unexpected return of her brother Paul, not to mention her ex John’s face around every corner, and Aisling’s got an awful lot on her plate.

When doubts, worries and an unfortunate clash threaten to get the better of her, Aisling needs to dig deep to see if she has enough strength and inspirational quotes to make it through.

‘Everyone in Ireland was reading Oh My God, What a Complete Aisling this Christmas and I got thoroughly swept up in the hype, devouring it in a couple of sittings. It’s been called “An Irish Bridget Jones” – and that should give you an idea of what you’re dealing with. It’s sweet and it’s funny and it’s moving.’ LYNN ENRIGHT, THE POOL

‘A loving ode to a certain type of Irish woman that’s hilarious, comforting and warm. A hot water bottle of a book, if you will.’ THE DAILY EDGE

‘Funny and touching … we fell in love with the heroine of Oh My God, What a Complete Aisling, about a small-town girl in Dublin.’ GOOD HOUSEKEEPING
