The Lost Girls of Ireland (Sandy Cove #7) by Susanne O’Leary

57124945. sy475

This book is listed as the seventh in a series, but it does not feel necessary to understand the people. I picked this up, having never visited Sandy Cove before, and it did not bother me.
The story begins with a woman finding out that she is in dire straits and has to abandon a carefully constructed life to set out on her own, as well as support her daughter. The relationship between mother and daughter was straightforward, had a believable number of ups and downs, and was probably the most entertaining thing for me since neither expected the other to rise up to the challenge the way they end up doing!.
In the new seaside town of Ireland that they find themselves in, society is tight-knit, and news travels fast. We have a wide range of supporting characters (who probably had/will have their own instalment in the series) who add to the colour. The love story was not bad, but I almost would not have missed it if it hadn’t been there.
I found some interactions between our leading lady and other people in town a little abrupt. On the whole, I liked the book, the different world and everything that that entails. I would recommend it as a quick read to anyone who enjoys reading this genre.
I received an ARC thanks to NetGalley and the publishers, but the review is entirely based on my own reading experience.
