Life is perfect for Anna Walsh. She has the "Best Job in the World" as a PR exec for a top-selling urban beauty brand, a lovely apartment in New York, and a perfect husband — the love of her life, Aidan Maddox. Until the morning she wakes up in her mammy's living room in Dublin with her face in stitches, a dislocated knee, and completely smashed-up hands — and no memory of how she got there. While her mammy plays nursemaid, Anna tries to get better and keeps wondering why Aidan won't return her phone calls or emails.
Recuperating from her injuries, a mystified Anna returns to Manhattan. Slowly beginning to remember what happened, she sets off on a search to find Aidan — a hilarious quest involving lilies (she can't stop smelling them), psychics, mediums, and anyone there who can promise her a reunion with her beloved...
I really enjoyed this book. Anna's struggles, the emotional and physical pain, really brought her to life, and her struggles and conflicts. I wish that we'd find out that Aidan was dead a bit earlier, but all in all, this was a really good book that I enjoyed.
Some of the things that Anna did, like the weekly Sunday meetings, or her birthday party, or being on the phone with the psychic, it was really funny. She was a great character, put in a horrible situation, and I really felt for her pain, and her fun, too, when she could almost breath through her husband's death.
All in all, a really good book that I loved, so you guys should check it out!
