  • Perfect Beach Read

    Thank you NetGalley, Faith Hogan and Aria & Aries for the ARC of The Ladies’ Midnight Swimming Club. This is my personal review. The story is about three women who are all at different places in their lives. Each have issues in their lives they are dealing with and they get together at a beautiful location to overcome the issues. It is a beautiful story so beautifully written showing the life changes they can deal with when they have friends and family to lean on for the strength to overcome these life’s changes. This book is an excellent choice for a book club to read.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Wonderful

    What a lovely surprise to read a very engaging book, which kept me wanting to know what happens next, without making it too obvious either. The great way that the chapters were titled from each person's point of view was very enlightening and the points of view were from very different perspectives...male and female, young and older. I loved the characters so much. The story was so intriguing and had lots of humour whilst keeping you wondering the outcomes of the various character journeys. Set in a place I would love to visit...the details sounded so beautiful. A wonderful read from beginning to end that I couldn't put down. Ms Hogan has a way of creating loveable, incredible characters and make you want to really invest in their story. A fabulous tale with some surprising twists that keep you flicking the pages.

  • A Sheer, Unadulterated Delight!

    A superb read! Friendship, family and secrets .. this has them all. When Elizabeth's husband dies, she discovers he has left her with momentous debts. The only person she can tell is her friend Jo who calls her daughter in the hope she can help. When Lucy returns home, all three women become firm friends and life changes are on the horizon for each of them - some bigger than others. Swimming in the Irish Sea at midnight proves to be an invigorating experience, leading onto the idea to turn it into a community fundraiser. Will it work? I've read Faith Hogan's books from the very beginning and have simply adored everything single one, and her latest sees a new maturity in her writing, showing the experience she has gained. This is a simply beautiful read, encompassing the difficulties which many of us get foisted upon us in life but it is told in such an uplifting way. I loved everything about it; the characters are beautifully and creatively drawn, the story draws the reader in and the writing makes us really care about it all. This is a novel which will appeal to all ages and leave everyone with the feeling that they have been privileged to share a part of these women's lives. A sheer, unadulterated delight from start to finish earns this one all five sparkling stars and my highest recommendation.

  • A heart-warming tear-jerker

    A feel-good, moving, emotion-filled story placed in a sea-side village in Western Ireland. Three women, all very close but all in different phases of their lives. Jo, the spunky elderly woman and mother to Lucy, whose life is about to be turned upside down. Lucy, a doctor and a recently divorced single-mother, looking for a new lease on life adventures to her hometown before hoping to send much needed time with her son Niall. Elizabeth, with a recently deceased husband who provided a loveless marriage and mountains of debt on his passing, tries to find her way with help from Jo and Lucy. Throw in the new addition to the town, Dan, and you have quite the story that ends with making your heart swell and yours eyes water. The characters in and their stories were relatable; we all know people who are like these people or maybe we see ourselves in them. Bits and pieces were a bit predictable, but that didn't take away from the greatness of the story. This is the first book I've read by Faith Hogan, but I am now very interested in reading more from her!
