The Woman Who Stole My Life - Marian Keyes

Stella Sweeney is a woman with a bit of a story to tell.  Just returned from New York to her native Dublin, we get to hear how much her life has changed in the past few years.  After a devastating illness, she decides to leave her marriage and job to take on new opportunities.

It was a bit of a mixed bag this book.  Certainly funnier and more realistic that the last couple of Marian Keyes books, it wasn't quite the amusement that her first few books were, but that is the same of many other authors too.  I did enjoy the hospital half of the book, but felt a bit rushed through the second part.

Anyways it was a good holiday read, easy to pick up and enjoy and I do hope she carries on writing.  4/5
