By Melanie Murphy
The warm, sparkling first novel from Melanie Murphy, author of non-fiction bestseller Fully Functioning Human (Almost) is full of heart, humour and magic.
Erin is about to turn thirty and her life is definitely not where she thought it would be. She hates her job, she's jealous of her perfect flatmate and she has just called off her wedding. She's trying (sort of) to make a fresh start and get things 'on track' finally, but where to begin?
A trip home to Ireland to celebrate her birthday with her beloved grandmother is a welcome distraction, but
what she's not prepared for is the gift she receives: a secret family heirloom that will change everything.
There are so many questions that have been keeping Erin from moving forward. Should she have married Dan? Would she be happier if she lost weight? Was turning down her dream job the giant mistake she's always feared it was? And now she might have a way to find the answers, and a clear path to the life she's always dreamed of.
But as Erin gets caught up in one 'if only' after another, is she missing out on all the things her real, present-day life is offering her?
If Only, the wonderful debut novel by Melanie Murphy is full of heart, humour, second chances, and a sprinkle of magic.
