Publisher's Summary

From the author of the number one best sellers The Women Who Ran Away and The Missing Wife.

At the first wedding, there's a shock.

The second wedding is unexpected.

By the third, Delphie thinks nothing could surprise her. But she's wrong....

Delphie is enjoying her brother's wedding. Her surprise last-minute Plus One has stunned her family - and it's also stopped any of them asking again why she's still single. But when she sees all the missed calls that evening, she knows it can't be good news. And she's right. 

Delphie has been living her best life, loving her job, her friends, her no-strings relationships and her dream house by the sea. Now she has to question everything she believed about who she is and what she wants. Is her mum right - is it time to settle down? Or does she want to keep on trying to have it all? 

Each wedding of a glorious summer brings a new surprise. And as everything Delphie thought she had is threatened, she has the chance to reshape her future....

Not one of her best

Argh read like a self absorbed teenage diary. I love Sheila o’flanagan but this was not one of her normal types or styles of writing.

Enjoyable, easy read but had potential to be more

I did enjoy this book and loved Delphie, however I felt like the storyline could've gone in so many more exciting directions! Maybe it could've been revealed that Conrad was murdered and there was a conspiracy behind it involving Bianca and Justin. I felt like Delphie had so much more to give but she kind of just existed for the most part. I understand it simply wasn't that kind of novel and was more about relationships, but the story definitely had the potential. Nevertheless, this was my first Shelia O'Flanagan book and I wont' hesitate to read another.

Enjoyable, easy listen

Goos story. All very neat and perfect. Interesting take on romance and marriage outside ‘normal’. Enjoyable if a little predictable.

Tedious, try hard storyline

O’Flanagan tries so hard to be ‘woke’ in this novel that it ends up missing the mark
For obscure reasons she spends ages describing really humdrum events in excessive detail, often derailing the storyline and not adding to the sense of the characters involved at all
In this book, the main character is able to rationally see all sides of every conflict and has no desire for revenge or experiences true anger at all!
The final commentary is very preachy about the rights of women to remain single and this reader was left wishing there had been a romance fiction happy ending.
Real world characters have multiple layers of emotions.It is very open minded that the author included a lesbian wedding, condoned an affair between a middle aged married man and a much younger woman, wrote in casual sex (that was out of character for the main protagonist) and underlined women’s rights in the workplace and to be proud of being tall(!) - but none of it was believable or actually entertaining
O’Flanagan should go back to her previous style of writing human stories that deal with real emotions
McMahon gave her usual excellent performance in narrating the story
