Like Emma I found myself leaving Ireland to live in the uk with my kids. Away from my family and everything I know I found myself insecure at times so I did feel for Emma.
Great storyline. Looking forward to reading more from this author.
Thanks goes to net galley for providing a copy in exchange do an honest review.
Once I started reading this book I realised that it was from a series of four, this being the latest book. This however did not take away my enjoyment of the book, and if there was going to be another story in this series I would like to read it.
This is a story about Emma and James, they have two small children and move from Ireland to London for James' job. He is the coach of ...more

Enjoyable book , predictable plot. A husband caught flirting multiple times, a wife worried about getting old and getting into mid-life crisis, two kids who wants a young sexy girl as a nanny.The moment Emma hired Claire I knew where the action is going to lead and eventually the end of it.
On the other hand , the book is easy to read and I really liked Moriarty's writing style. My favorite character remains Barbara because she was the only one who was interesting and who actually animated the...more

This is the forth book about Emma and James however each one can be read as a standalone. Previous books covered their battle with infertility, an adoption journey, the stress of parenting two young children. And now in this one they face yet another uphea ...more

It was also strange that all the characters are dull, flat and whine a lot up until p242 (in my paperback copy) whe ...more
The book is about Emma who moves with her family to London for her husband's new job. The whole family encounters quite a lot of difficulties when they try to settle in and suddenly things start to get worse.
I was really intrigued by the story although I expected a slightly different outcome. I also moved to a foreign country and know what kind of problems are connected with such a decision - this made the book even more interesting for me.

First of all, I suprisingly really like Sineads writing style, because I sometimes have problems with it in other contemporary books, - it is light and nimble.
Mad About You is about Emma and her family, when they moved to London because James has new job there. They have little bit a hard time get used to new place, new people and new challenges. And when they become slightly acclimatized, then there occur strange texts from number ...more
From the beginning I warmed to Emma, she seemed very down to earth, and I absolutely sympathised with her during her move to London, the fear of not making new friends, and what she was going to do about getting a ...more
After university, she went to live in Paris and then London. It was at the age of thirty, while wo ...more
