    1. I have read every one of Roisin Meaney's books to my knowledge and enjoyed them all. "Two Fridays in April" was no exception. Meaney's style is so readable, her characters real, warm, flawed and well developed and the story flows along at a pace that I am always sucked in from page one. Can't wait for the next book, which, as luck would have it, is out in a few weeks!Find more reviews and bookish fun at princessandpen

    3. Once started I devoured this book and couldn't put it down.A really enjoyable drama with lots going on with each character separated and together.Really liked the way you got the story from the 4 main characters own perspectives, Daphne, Isobel, Mo and Una, all suffering in their own way with the loss of Finn a year ago.Some little twists and turns thrown in there and you have a great wee read.

    5. Review also posted on my blog here: gobookyourselffo/2015/0Thanks to Hachette Ireland for the review copy Roisin does it again! Another brilliant read full of wonderful characters!Two Fridays In the same month. but what a difference a year can make. It's the second of April and its Una's birthday but no one feels like celebrating. Why? Because its also a year to the day since Una's dad was knocked from his bike and killed.Since then nothings been the same. A rift has been created in the family. [...]

    6. This is one of the best novels I have read in 2017. Roisin Meaney has become one of my favorite Irish authors. Her characterization is impeccable, her writing is beautiful, and her plot is addictive. Every time I had to stop reading, my hands were itching to get back to the novel. You have two main characters, Daphne and Una. There are also two secondary characters, Isobel and Mo. This is where Meaney shines. All of the characters were extremely flawed, but extremely lovable as well. Daphne cloc [...]

    7. Good readThe book was good, abit slow but I got in to it eventually. I would try another by the author.

    8. Absolutely lovelyAnother fan read from Roisin. Believable and likeable characters and storylines. Loved it. Can't wait to choose the next read.

    9. A surprisingly beautiful storyBeautifully written, this is a sad story that rises to an extremely happy ending - I thoroughly enjoyed the journey!

    10. This was a superbly written book by Meaney. I loved how the story highlighted how much one man's death can affect the people left behind. The story is told from the alternating perspectives of the four ladies, and I liked how certain imagery linked all of their stories together without too much repetitive overlap. Daphne is a very likeable character, her love for Finn is evident throughout. Una is also a very admirable girl, despite her naivety at times, she inspires the others to move on from t [...]

    11. I devoured this book in a few days - thanks to a Hachette promotion. I found the story beautifully balanced, and really enjoyed the way the different threads of the stories were woven together with such an accomplished touch. I also relished the perspectives of each character - telling their own story from a naturally biased perspective.

    12. Thought provokingThis is my first book by this author. I found it to be well written, and it kept my interest. The characters are thought out and I liked them. Will read more of her books!!

    13. Roisin Meaney again delivers an amazing read, I loved this book so much from page 1 it grabs you , I cried buckets and laughed out loud . Well done to the genius that is Roisin x

    14. Enjoyable read by a writer with finely tuned insight. I might though have preferred to finish it off in my own head ,and done without the final chapter

    15. loved this book by Roisin Meaney it is the first of her books that I have read.Look forward to reading some more of her books.
