Well I have to say smugly it was a very satisfying read and I enjoyed every last second of it. It is the last in the trilogy and this author just keeps getting better!
It took me a while to remember all the characters that played throughout the series but once that was achieved I just flew through it. The book deals with true to life events, the recession, marriage seperation, death, teenage anorexia and of course love.
I really looked forward to coming home after work and curling up with a coff...more

Patricia Scanlan has now released the final part of her trilogy entitled Love & Marriage. The first two books were Forgive and Forget released in 2008 and Happy Ever After released in 2009.

We again meet the same characters and their daily struggles. Bryan and Debbie are now newly married and feeling the pinch financially. Their marriage is already looking uncertain and as things get harder Bryan tends to bury his head in the sand even more.

I've really enjoyed this trilogy and this book in particular as it continued the stories of the Adams, Davenport and Baxter families and developed their links to each other. I don't know if there are any more books in this series planned but I would definitely read them if there is. The characters were well developed and you wanted everything to turn out well for them (apart from the nasty ones of course). All in all a very enjoyable read that had me hooked.

Having read the other 2 books in this set, I was happy to get my hands on this book. I really could not wait to find out what was happening to the characters lives. I feel it wrapped up the characters well, and I enjoyed it. I can always rely on a Patricia Scanlan book, for a cosy comfortable read, and this did not disappoint. Recommended.

Em Segredos do Teu Olhar temos o final desta trilogia em que acompanhamos várias famílias, cada uma com os seus problemas e as suas divergências, mas que se encontram ligadas de alguma forma. Neste livro acompanhamos os problemas que já vinham de trás e ainda mais alguns ligados à recessão que se viu na Irlanda há uns anos atrás.
A pouco e pouco vão-se resolvendo problemas, vão-se criando pontes e relacionamentos entre pessoas e onde não é possível que isso acontece há ruptura. Felizmente a rupt...more
I enjoyed this book more than the second in the series, but I found that it was quite dragged out but not about the enjoyable parts of the plot, more about the depressing financial sitatuations (it was as if she was trying to name as many companies etc. who had shares fall as possible) and I found half of Judith's storyline completely irrelevant (a chapter about her going to visit a therapist whom she finds completely unhelpful and ridiculous - did not move the plot along at all). However the la...more

Great bit of family life reading...
This wasn't my favourite of the books in the trilogy- but it was a great read. It was nice to catch up with the characters and see the storylines tied up. It deals with extended families and different ralationships.

Patricia Scanlan is one of my favourite authors and looking forward to picking up the other two waiting for me.
This book is a continuation of Patricia’s last book and the conclusion
of the series.
When I got to grips with this book, I did enjoy it, however there were
so many Characters, I had trouble remembering which is which, It was a
very long book, so I was glad to get to the end.
Apesar de toda a série ser interessante (ainda que não arrebatadora) este livro foi um excelente desfecho.
O cruzar no final de todas as personagens e o "felizes para sempre" que se aguardava foi bonito.
Vou continuar a ler esta autora.
Last in the series and a very good ending.. all the characters had a conclusion so your not left asking for more..
Hope this author will now bring out a new series just as good...
Have read all the books in this series. This was a good ending. Enjoyed very much - great characters that I had gotten to care about over three books. Good to sit down and relax with.

Not my usual read- but nothing else in the house. Despite myself I did enjoy it- I don't realise it was part three of a trilogy- stood on its own two feet though.
Para mim o terceiro livro salvou a série!

A minha opinião:
Pure fluff, but I love her books. You can zip through them in a couple days, and they're just happy and fun.
loved this book it tied up all the loose ends great characters. this author is at her best
Nice, easy read. Read it in just over 3 hours during travel so made the time go fast!,
good catch with the characters! keep it up!
A pleasant read about family life.
