I’ve often heard that Claudia Carroll writes like Marian Keyes and Cecelia Ahern but felt doubtful that anybody could live up to the masters of Irish Chic Lit fiction. All She Ever Wished For was therefore a pleasant surprise. Witty, warm and just like cuddling up in your favourite chair with a cup of tea on a winters evening. I devoured it.
The story follows two characters. Tessa is about to get married when she is unexpectedly called for jury service a few weeks before the big day. Kate is a celebrity wife estranged from her husband and facing the media’s discern.
The story is full of warm romance, unexpected turns and delightful turns of events. It’s an addictivly fast paced novel considering it’s genre as it dabbles in a sensational court case and the world of crime fiction.
Thoroughly enjoyable and definitely an author I’ll be reading again!
