If only

Livre

Edité par Hachette Books Ireland - 2019

Erin est sur le point d’avoir trente ans et sa vie n’est certainement pas là où elle pensait qu’elle serait. Elle déteste son travail, elle est jalouse de son colocataire parfait - et elle vient d’annuler son mariage. Un voyage à la maison en Irlande pour célébrer son anniversaire avec sa grand-mère bien-aimée est exactement ce dont Erin a besoin, et elle a passé des jours à se préparer à annoncer ses fiançailles brisées. Ce à quoi ’elle n’est pas préparée, c’est le don qu’elle reçoit : un héritage familial secret qui va tout changer. Serait-ce la réponse dont Erin était à la recherche - la clé d'une vie heureuse? Seul le temps nous le dira…
Erin is about to turn thirty and her life is definitely not where she thought it would be. She hates her job, she's jealous of her perfect flatmate - and she has just called off her wedding. A trip home to Ireland to celebrate her birthday with her beloved grandmother is exactly what Erin needs, and she's spent days preparing herself to break the news about her broken engagement. What she's not prepared for is the gift she receives: a secret family heirloom that will change everything. Could this be the answer Erin has been looking for - the key to the happy life she's always dreamed of? Only time will tell...

  • a summer read, nothing more, nothing less 2/5

    2.5 stars This is a summer read, nothing more, nothing less. It's not my kind of read whatsoever so this review is worth what it's worth... And for what it's worth (and what I remember of it), it felt a lot like Georgia Nicholson's diaries 15 years older. Except the extreme bitchiness isn't cute anymore. To be perfectly honest I hated the main character, a self pitying child she was ! and soooo jealous and full of clichés. She had me roll my eyes at least a dozen times. But you have to give this much to Melanie she went out of her way to depict a main protagonist in all her flaws. I did enjoy the Irishness of it all, A LOT (pretty much the only reason I stuck to it till the end). I also thought the characters were all pretty interesting (except Erin, she just pissed me off) even though none were given as much layering as I'd have liked to see (let's face it the book would have been much too long had there been more layers to the characters). And i liked how the thoughts were intertwined in the story (though there were a loooooot and somewhat irrelevant at times). I was a little annoyed at the obvious and somewhat rushed ending (it's a bit too easy) and felt a little let down : I wish the whole "if only" thingamajig had been further exploited. Anyway, definitely not my type of read.
