Ex teacher Annie is on a serious downward spiral after losing her college sweetheart, her job and possibly her mind. But despite fleeing to the wilds of Kerry in Ireland to mend her broken heart, she soon finds herself entangled with two very different Mr. Wrongs. Mart a washed up soap star falls off his barstool into her arms. While Scott a hip American photographer seems intent on embarrassing her and becomes the nemesis she loves to hate. But it is the arrival of Philo a former college “frenemy” now remade as a social climbing glamazon and married to one of Ireland’s richest men that forces Annie to face some home truths. Can she sort out who really is that “certain someone”?
“A Certain Someone” is a sharply observed romantic comedy featuring a bruised heroine trying to find love beyond the clichés of hearts and flowers.
“I really enjoyed this book. Annie is a great character, funny and self deprecating and on a serious losing streak but determined and brave. After she loses herboyfriend and her job, she slinks home to Ireland with her tail between her legs
only to find herself caught up in village life and romantic intrigue in Kerry. So far so rom com but what makes this book stand out is the lively writing and the no holds barred insights into post Celtic Tiger Ireland. Annie’s deadly rival, the
ghastly nouveau riche Philomena Crotty is a comic monster to rival Lady Catherine de Burgh in her condescension and control freakery” – Amazon Reviewer
