Hannah Robinson is just about to open the doors to her new shop Cupcakes on the Corner when out of the blue her boyfriend Patrick announces that he's leaving her for another woman. Faced with starting a business on her own, Hannah begins to wonder if her life-long dream has just turned into a nightmare.
So her best friend Adam sets his birthday as a deadline - seven months to make her shop a success, or walk away from it all. And as Hannah immerses herself in early-morning icing, she soon discovers that she's too busy to think about Patrick and his now pregnant girlfriend . . . or to notice an increasingly regular customer who has recently developed a sweet tooth for all things cupcake . . .
But while Hannah is slowly piecing her life back together, family friend Alice's is falling apart. Her husband Tom's drinking is getting out of control and things are about to get a whole lot worse.
As the seven-month milestone approaches, Hannah must decide her future. And while she's figuring out what's really important, it becomes clear to everyone that happiness in life, and in love, is all in the making.
Why buy from World of Books
Our excellent value books literally don't cost the earth
Her best book so far. Repeatedly and deservedly likened to Maeve Binchy, she is a master of her craft and a gifted storyteller. She has outdone herself with a skilful plot, memorable characters and the ability to leave the reader wanting more. The cleverly written plot-within-a-plot gives an interesting twist to this absorbing book. If you are a Binchy fan, I would highly recommend you get to know Meaney too. * Irish Independent * 'The Last Week of May is a highly engaging and heartwarming tale populated with warm and loveable characters. Roisin Meaney's gentle storytelling is reminiscent of that of Maeve Binchy. I truly adored the book and devoured it within a few short hours.' * Melissa Hill * 'Keenly observed and beautifully told. Lots of writers are compared to Binchy but Meaney really is ... Buy it now and put it in the beach bag.' * Irish Independent Review * 'With writing reminiscent of Maeve Binchy's, Meaney is carving out a niche for herself in this crowded market.' * Irish Examiner * The plot will draw you in; and there is both laughter and tears along the way. Meaney is an accomplished storyteller. * Books Ireland * A heart-warming story . . . that readers are bound to devour * Irish Independent *
