Connections – Sheila O’Flanagan

30 Oct


Synopsis – In this enchanting collection of warm, poignant and romantic interlinked short stories Sheila O’Flanagan transports her readers to the Caribbean island resort of White Sands, where visitors arrive hoping their dreams will come true – which they sometimes do.

In touching, poignant and delicious tales of life by the ocean, Sheila introduces some of the most likeable and interesting characters she’s created. There’s Tara, who’s arrived with the man she wants to marry only to find that a rejected lover is planning to get in the way; Grainne, who’s been sent with her husband by their children to celebrate their anniversary, and who thinks the time has come to move on. Rudy’s on an idyllic break with his young son which is set for an unexpected ending; and Isobel – of ISOBEL’S WEDDING – discovers her ex-lover Nico might be staying just next door. Romance is very much alive in the hot Caribbean nights…

My thoughts – This book is almost a collection of short stories about the various guests staying at the White Sands hotel. It’s quite simular to the film Love Actually with all the different caracters, however the caracters werent so interlinking as what they are in the film. It’s a chick lit book, with lots of romance. I did skip the part about isobel as it is a follow up book to Isobels wedding that is on my TBR pile and i didnt want to spoil it, so i will go back to the chapter once i have read the other book.
I thought that this book was a highly enjoyable read, once i had got into the book i couldn’t put it down. it is easy to get into and pick up when it is put down. i would highly recommend this book to anyone that hasn’t read this yet. I warmed to all the charaters, especially the ones that i didnt think i would. there were lots of twists and turns to the various stories that kept me guessing til the end of each chapter. i would love to read more about the charaters if their was any follow up books. I already have some books by this author on my TBR pile and i would love to read more as this book was so enjoyable.
