She’s back! The literary heroine of 2017 returns for another slice of romance, heartbreak and adventure. Pure notions, really. Hotly anticipated sequel to the literary debut of 2017

Popular Fiction Book of the Year Winner - AN POST IRISH BOOK AWARDS 2018

Aisling is 29 and she's still a complete Aisling. After a tough year, things between herself and John are back on track, and life with Sadhbh and Elaine in their notiony Dublin apartment is more craic than ever. With John back in her life and a wedding to look forward to, Aisling is feeling pretty optimistic.

In fact, things are looking up for almost everyone: Mammy is beginning to feel a little stronger after the Daddy calamity, Majella has found love in the arms of a mysterious stranger, and Ballygobbard is a’buzz with new development. But trouble’s brewing in Dublin, and before she knows it, Ais is on the road home, towing some awkward questions in her wake…

Can she give up the sophistication of brunch and unlimited Pinot Greej?

Will she and Mammy kill each other living back under the same roof?

And where does that leave her and John?

When a girls' trip to Vegas gives Aisling some unexpected confidence, she decides it's time to grab Ballygobbard by the horns. Throw in a surprise engagement, a very public brawl, new friends and nasty foes, maybe BGB is just what Aisling needs to discover she's stronger than she ever imagined.

'Hilariously funny, but often very moving too. Aisling is the real Voice of Ireland.'  John Boyne
