"I loved Life Drawing for Beginners. From the start, I was caught up by the characters and increasingly intrigued as the threads of their lives entwine. Like the life drawing class in which they meet, we come to see them in their bare and poignant beauty. Roisin Meaney perfectly times her revelations to keep us glued to the page. This is a charming, fast-paced book that stays with the reader for a very long time."―Barbara Delinsky, New York Times bestselling author of ESCAPE
"SEMI-SWEET is wise, witty, and wonderful. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. It's going to sell like cupcakes."―Debbie Macomber, #1 New York Times bestselling author
"Roisin Meaney serves up a tale as charming and delicious as a homemade cupcake. Hannah, the main character, is endearing, funny, insecure, and unforgettable. I savored every bit of this romantic and deeply true novel, right up to the surprising ending."―Susan Wiggs
"Fans of Maeve Binchy will love Roisin Meaney. Semi-Sweet is an endearing, insightful story of self-discovery, empowerment, love, and yes, most deliciously, cupcakes..."―Erica Bauermeister, author of THE SCHOOL OF ESSENTIAL INGREDIENTS
"A heartwarming tale about the yearning for love, the search for happiness and the importance of friendship--all served up with tea and cupcakes."―Lisa Verge Higgins, author of THE PROPER CARE AND MAINTENANCE OF FRIENDSHIP
"With writing reminiscent of Maeve Binchy's, Meaney is carving out a niche for herself in this crowded market."―Irish Examiner
"Repeatedly and deservedly likened to Maeve Binchy, she is a master of her craft and a gifted storyteller. She has outdone herself with a skillful plot, memorable characters and the ability to leave the reader wanting more. If you are a Binchy fan, I would highly recommend you get to know Meaney too."―Irish Independent
