This was a perfectly fine story, it was missing something, they were in the French Riviera basically all the description we got was that it was hot, in Northern Ireland it was damp and rainey(groundbreaking that is) and in England it was cool and rainey. There wasn't a very complicated mystery, also covered was the breakdown of the the main characters marriage ten years earlier. I wish there was more physical descriptions of everything but otherwise a solid 3 star rating.

Predictable soapy tosh is it supposed to be chick lit or a thriller? Either way it doesn't work.

This book came to my attention because someone thought I had written it. It’s set around the North Coast of Ireland (where I live and all my books are set) and I wasn’t aware that anyone else had given any more than a passing reference to the North Coast in their novels, but then I heard about Roisin McAuley.

The story focuses on a woman who used to be a detective in Ballymoney, but has now left that behind and become a solicitor. While on holiday in France she comes across a man who may or may n

Roisin McAuley's writing has been compared to Maeve Binchy, I do see some similarities, maybe it's because they are both Irish? They certainly do have some things in common, the main thing being the ease at which the reader is drawn into the story.

Meeting Point is a romantic suspense story. Solicitor and single mum Claire is holidaying in France with her best friend and their two sons. The story opens as Claire is forced to dive into a ditch to avoid being knocked down by a sports car on a quiet

This novel is a pleasant mix of detective and romance themes. The heroine Claire, is unsettled after her marriage breakup and her change of career from the police force to solicitor. She is obviously an attractive 40 year old woman looking for peace and answers both personally for herself and her son, and professionally. She finds the answers only to lose them again as she lurches on making quick unfounded assumptions only some of which turn out to be correct.
I enjoyed the book, found it interes

I really enjoyed reading this novel, there were times I was super frustrated with the main character with not being daring enough but the twist ending was pretty shocking to me. I didn't ever feel the need to look ahead, and it was nice to see a single mother in a story that involved murder mystery. The lead character is both strong and vulnerable which was very interesting.

Well, as an avid Agatha Christie reader, I often annoyed by modern mysteries. This one didn't feel like a mystery as much as an unhappy woman with problem. Never fear though, she figures out who did and manages to find a happily ever after.

I really enjoyed this book....an interesting mix of romance and a murder mystery with no gory details of either. An easy read with several twists and turns in the plot....even my hoped-for conclusion had an unexpected twist.

For the type of book it is, I found it an enjoyable read without too many annoying scenes where I was thinking, "Only an idiot would do that!"

Hmm, wavering between 3 and 4 stars here, but this was a clever story with lots of threads nicely tied up at the end. Perhaps some of the characters a bit cliched, hence not a whole-hearted 4 stars.

A quick read, Meeting Point is the perfect book to unwind with on a rainy weekend. Though the mystery was not convoluted, the writing style was simple.

A great suspense read. Did he or didn't he? Will she or won't she? Kept me hooked to the end. (I started it on Feb. 6th.)

Niet het beste boek van deze schrijfster. Komt traag op gang, personages niet al te goed uitgewerkt, wordt saai om te lezen.
Heb andere boeken van haar gelezen die veel beter waren.
