#BookReview #AKeeper by Graham Norton

A Keeper

The truth drifts out to sea, riding the waves out of sight. And then the tide turns.

A Keeper is the second novel from the best loved broadcaster Graham Norton. Following on from his debut novel Holding, which was a commercial and critical success, Graham Norton set his mind to writing book two. It is described as a ‘compelling new novel confirming Graham Norton’s status as a fresh, literary voice, bringing his clear-eyed understanding of human nature and its darkest flaws.’

Just published with Hodder and Stoughton, I was delighted to receive a signed copy of A Keeper at an event with Graham Norton which was recently hosted by Easons and Rick O’ Shea at The Cork Opera House.

Please do read on for my thoughts…

The Thought Book 2 


Today I have something a little different for you all with an extract from The Thought Book 2 by Jay Mullings.

His books feature thought-provoking content, aimed at combating the negative self-defeating dialogue we all sometimes practice.

Both Jay Mullings books in this series are written with a strong message of encouragement for others to help develop their self-belief, and pursue their own dreams.

#BookReview In The Court’s Hands by @FionaGartland @PoolbegBooks

In The Court’s Hands

“If it had rained on the 25th of April at least one woman would not have died. Not that I bear any responsibility for that. Nothing I did intentionally caused anyone’s death – though the fact remains, people did die”
