Format: Paperback
I'm an American who reaches overseas to grab books by Patricia Scanlan after finding Francesca's Party at a B&B in Shannon last summer. Mirror Mirror, the sequel to Promises Promises, follows Ellen Munroe, Chris Wallace, Miriam, Emma, Stephanie, Julie Ann, and a plethora of other lively characters through the opening of The Deli, Stephanie's acquaintance with her father's kin, and Ellen's "coming of age" where Chris is concerned. I finished the book seconds ago and already I'm scouring Amazon for more. Does that tell you anyting? It should! Her books are a fun read. As with the others I've read, this one is going right over to my mom, who's been urging me to finish it.

Mirror, Mirror is a continuation of the book Promises, Promises and continues following the lives of three women; Miriam, Ellen and Emma all of whom are entwined within the Monroe family. It explores each womans trials and tribulations of family life and battling their fears, while realizing their dreams at the same time. A completely enthralling book. It was extremely hard to put it down once I started reading it.

This sequel to "Promises Promises" was even more enjoyable than the first book. It was mostly about the women in the story getting revenge for past and present insults by the bad boy in the story. Fast moving and well written, I was really sorry when it ended.

Format: Paperback
This is a the second of a two part story so it's really a must to read Promises Promises first. I had not heard of Patricia Scanlan before and really bought the set of two books because they were on special offer but this author should be at the top of the bestseller lists because I was really pleasantly surprised at the quality of her writing. It's a family story where a girl falls for a rotter and, for a time, things seem to go his way and he comes up smelling of roses every time. In the second book his run of luck runs out and everything seems to go wrong for him at the same time. This is a wonderfully healing read if you have gone through a bad relationship and/or divorce and many things said and done in the book were uncannily similar to my own experience! The charaters are so lifelike, for example, the mother-in-law who is a big noise at the Townswomen's Guild who wonders how she will show her face there again after all the scandal that has befallen her family. It is such a heart-warming story with a few comic episodes,it really does make you look back at your own divorce/split and makes it easier to get through, the revenge episodes made me think YES! This story is so life-like and so enjoyable, I couldn't put it down, it's perfect holiday reading. Patricia Scanlan's writing is so clever because she does different scenes from different characters' point of view, for example one moment she would have me thinking, poor Ellen, Chris is such a rotter then in the following interlude she would write from Chris' point of view and describe his confusion about his feelings so next thing I would feel sympathy for Chris and be able to understand why he had been acting as he had. One of my all time great reads, a brilliant saga. Now I have gone on to read all Patricia Scanlan's books, I have really enjoyed them all but this saga is something special.
