Publisher's Summary

Sheila O'Flanagan's best seller If You Were Me will make listeners wonder: what would I do if my first love came back into my life? A must-listen if you enjoy the novels of Veronica Henry and Catherine Alliott.

You're engaged to a great man. You're on a countdown to your wedding day. You stopped thinking about your first love a long time ago. But what if one unexpected, forbidden kiss were to throw your life upside down?

Carlotta O'Keefe suddenly finds herself wondering if the girl she was would recognise the woman she has become. She thought she was living a charmed life. But what if she's got it all wrong? What if her past is meant to be her future?

Teenage angst never really leaves us...

The love, heartbreak, determination and endless cycle of trying to find where she fits, lets the lead character get under your skin and allows you to empathise. Totally worth your time to listen.

It held so much promise...

Story: It held so much promise... but it disappoint in the end. I found the story was ok. A few things that just didn't make this book to 4 stars for me. 1) I can understand that the author wants to keep some kind of suspense and not reveal everything at the start but my god it took forever to actually tell us what happened between Carlotta and Luke all this time ago and there was no reason to keep it from the readers for so long, it didn't bring anything 'wow' into the plot. 2) who in their right mind don't ask someone who disappeared one night, never to be seen, what the heck happened? 3) the female role of Carlotta was not as feminist as she should have been, considering how she was portrayed as a whole. She was weak and stupid. I don't understand the appeal of female characters depicted like that. Why on earth would she not tell her 'best' friend of the chauvinistic colleague of hers at the start of her friends relationship with him. Of course when she did tell him it was too late. AND what sealed the deal for me was the ending when she has decided her career is more important to her, to drop the important meeting to stay with the 'guy'. DISAPPOINTING. Ideal ending would be to have it all: Fast forward a week, she has gone to the meeting, he has followed her to Dublin and bam! happy ending. No I don't recommend this book. We can do better female characters authors, please. Performance: Aofie is THE BEST narrator ever. *****5 stars easily.

long winded

This book would have been so much better if it had a faster pace and a few less words. There is nothing worse than when there is just too much detail. Set the scene but cut out the boring bits please. It has put me off buying another one of her books. Narration was ok.

Enjoyed this even though the pace was rather slow. Performance was excellent as with the others. Would recommend for a holiday.

Another brilliant Sheila O'Flannigan story

Don't know how she does it but she does, and brilliantly.
Another fabulous Irish saga to lose yourself in. I loved it!
All her stories just seem so plausible and this is no exception. Heroines with all the flaws of us mere mortals, with just the hint of humour.
