Life’s What You Make it by Sian O’Gorman

I’m so delighted to be part of the tour for this wonderful book. Thanks so much to Rachel’s Random Resources for the copy of the book and invitation to be part of the tour.

Dreams can come true, you just have to believe…

All new from Irish bestselling author Sian O’Gorman

After 10 years in London, working in a stressful City firm, Liv O’Neill returns home to Sandycove, a picturesque seaside village, just outside Dublin to care for her mother after a fall.

Whilst Liv reconnects with friends and family, she is amazed by Sandycove’s thriving community spirit with its artisan shops, delis and cafes – it’s not quite the place she left behind.

As village life begins to creep under her skin, Liv is forced to confront the things that drove her away.

Can Liv balance her past, present and future and find her own happy place?

And will a handsome young doctor help her make a decision about the life she really wants?

Suddenly her old life in London begins to seem extremely unappealing and Liv is forced to use her family’s past in order to forge a brand new future.

My Review:

I love this author’s books and I was really looking forward to reading this one.

It’s set in the beautiful village of Sandycove, and it’s really refreshing to read a book set in a genuine location. I could picture the setting so well.

The characters are wonderful and I really liked Liv. She’s very kind and caring, but has lost a bit of her self-confidence while living in London. She returns home to Sandycove to help her mum out, and finds her old, sparkling self start to return.

As she finds herself drawn back into the local community, I was swept along and drawn into the story.

A charming and enjoyable page-turner, I just loved every minute of this gorgeous book. Highly recommended.
