Patricia Scanlan is one of the few chick-lit authors I read, and I think this is one of her best books. (It's the sequel to her "Promises, Promises", but I read this one first.)

It's 1969 in Dublin, and things are going all sorts of wrong for Chris Wallace, womanising shit extraordinaire. His wife, Suzy, finds out about the affair he's having with her best friend, Alexandra, and throws him out of the house. Alexandra doesn't actually like him (or anyone, really; she's what they had in mind when t

Mirror, Mirror is the story of two women who have had enough and are about to get even with Chris Wallace.
Chris Wallace was an accomplished liar. Suzy Wallace knew her husband Chris was having an affair.
Alexandra Johnston was one woman who wouldn't dance to his tune,she would just use him as long as ut suited her.
Ellen Munroe, let Chris think that his emotionally abusive behaviour was perfectly acceptable. After seven years of emotional turmoil, Ellen final

Recommends it for: Everyone. Excellent feel good read. Comedy, family trials and tribulations.
Recommended to Julie by: Both books of set on offer at WorldBooks
Brilliant end to a two part saga!!!

This is a the second of a two part story so it's really a must to read Promises Promises first. I had not heard of Patricia Scanlan before and really bought the set of two books because they were on special offer but this author should be at the top of the bestseller lists because I was really pleasantly surprised at the quality of her writing. It's a family story where a girl falls for a rotter and, for a time, things seem to go his way and he comes up smellin

This was a long story but well worth it. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Whilst I really enjoyed this book - I wasn't sure why it was set in 1969/1970?? I thought it was going to have a 'present day' ending, but it didn't.

I liked how the women were connected to Chris, and how he got his comeuppance!! It was only when I was halfway through that I realised there was a book that was written before this, oops

Need more stars to give this lady. Bought this book, only half way through part one. And it didn't disappoint, a fitting end to an amazing duology. You feel an inner guilty pleasure to see Chris get his cumuppance. I just couldn't put down this series, housework was abandoned. Can't wait for another PS book, bring on the genius.

Recommends it for: Hippolein
I bought this book for a fellow BC-member, who had it on his wishlist. Since it is not really my kind of book, I decided not to read it before sending it on.

This book overextended the author's talents. It seemed like she tired to fit in too many story lines & consequently, some were ignored. NB: Promises, Promises in the UK.

Extremely enjoyable, a little over descriptive in places but a number of laugh out loud and fist pumping moments.
