‘I loved it!’ Marian Keyes

‘Laugh-out-loud funny, sharp as a tack and compulsively readable … I loved it.’ Louise O’Neill

‘Astutely observed, whip-smart and very, very funny.’ Sarah Breen

‘Laugh-out-loud hilarious … White’s pages fizz with earthy wit and [Marian] Keyes fans will definitely find plenty to enjoy here’ Sunday Independent

If you could go back and follow the road not taken … would you?

For thirty-somethings Lindy, Ailbhe and Roe, the move to new, hyper-polished, luxury housing development Monteray Valley feels like slow death by Netflix, neighbourhood Whatsapp groups and Saturday nights in. The potential for exciting new possibilities seems to be withering faster than you can say ‘postnatal dryness’ as the women’s lives are consumed by other halves and domestic obligations.

Lindy’s realising that her ambitions have been hijacked by her son’s career. He’s eleven.

Meanwhile, despite years of self-sabotage, Ailbhe ‘has it all’: a successful business, a husband, a baby. If only having it all didn’t also include having a fairly colossal secret.

Then there’s Roe who is busy trying for a baby — a risky business when you’re not sure you want one.

Compiling a snag list to send to their builder sees the new friends contemplating their own personal snag lists — their regrets and unfulfilled dreams – and inspires a business idea that’s about to see life in Monteray Valley get a lot more interesting.

Getting a second chance to carpe diem is irresistible, but can do-overs ever really work? And will revisiting past regrets threaten the lives they’ve made now?
