Too good to be true by Sheilah O'Flanagan
Carey and Ben meet on a transatlantic flight between Ireland and New York. Carey invites Ben to a party, they fall in love and rush off to Vegas to get married. A few days later, they jet back to Dublin and that is where things fall apart. Everybody is shocked at their marriage, Bens on - off girlfriend is determined to win him back and they find that things are just not quite the same in real life.
I love Sheila O'Flanagans books and have read quite a few. I have been reading quite a few heavy books lately, so this was really light and refreshing which was what I needed, and I did really enjoy it. However, this particular book I didn't feel was the best of her books. Although there were some funny bits it was not nearly as funny as it could have been. Also, it did drag on quite a bit during the middle of the book. The two main characters were also a bit frustrating, once they returned to Dublin both carried on as if they never got married and expected the other one to be happy with it, particularly when things started falling apart. Also, they never talked about anything, just packed things in.
If you are looking for a light, funny, easy read this book is definitely for you!
