Once, Twice, Three Times An Aisling By Emer McLysaght and Sarah Breen
The fabulous Aisling is back for a third time with the latest book by Emer McLysaght and Sarah Breen called ‘Once, Twice, Three Times An Aisling’.
Aisling is thirty, flirty and frazzled. But – just when she should finally be feeling all grown-up – she’s floundering. Because when you’re recovering from a broken heart as well as struggling to keep your café as sizzling as your award-winning sausages, it’s hard to feel you’ve really made it as an adult. Which is just the moment for the unexpected to strike and complicate everything. Now is not the time for a delicious new man to show up, her best friend to demand the hen do of the century and a surprise celebrity appearance. But Aisling, never one to worry about having too much on her plate, rolls up her sleeves: she’s got this. Until she discovers that being a proper grown-up means you can’t do everything. Sometimes you will let someone down. But will it be those she loves, or herself?
Aisling is back with a bang and I have to admit, the latest book is my favourite series. Again the writing duo have created a magnificent story filled with empathy, charm and humour that made for delicious reading. Our favourite Irish lass is back and this time it’s all about being the perfect bridesmaid to her best friend, catering for a secret celebrity wedding as well as trying to move on with her broken heart and face her 30th birthday. But in true Aisling style, she puts everyone before herself to make sure that everyone has their perfect day.
I’ve always found Aisling to be one of the most relatable characters that I’ve had the joy of reading in a while. Like every woman, she’s terrified of turning 30 as she hasn’t achieved the same as everyone else and is pressure from society, with everyone settling down around her. She’s kind with a huge heart and a sensible mind, but she genuinely makes me laugh out loud with her wit and the dialogue throughout.
An Irish heartwarming tale at its very finest, ‘Once, Twice, Three Times An Aisling’ is filled with warmth, Irish charm and a bittersweet ending that really leaves that reader on the edge of their seat. This book is well worthy of its recent Irish Books Awards nomination for Book of the Year and is a fantastic return to everyone’s favourite Irish protagonist
