The Last Week of May: The Number One Bestseller

THE NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER — a warm engrossing tale of friendship and new beginnings …

‘Like chatting with a good friend over a cup of tea’ Irish Mail on Sunday

May O’Callaghan has decided that life’s too short and she’s decided to throw in the towel in her predictable nine-to-five job. Now what?

As May fits into her new life we meet her friend Pam and her husband Jack – but why is Pam terrified to tell Jack that she’s pregnant?

And then there’s Denis and Bernard, May’s next-door neighbours, going about their business oblivious to the deadly threat that lurks close by.

There’s Paddy, who lives on his own yet never seems to be at home.

And Paul, three doors up, willing to risk everything for an affair with Carmel, the young teacher who has yet to learn that there’s a price to pay for having something that shouldn’t be yours.

But what May can’t figure out is who gave her the beautiful shell necklace and was it really meant for her?

On this one particular week, all is about to change for the inhabitants of Kilpatrick and May discovers that while only love can break your heart, only love can put it back together.

Reviews

'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.'
