The Importance of Being Aisling

The Importance of Being Aisling


Penguin presents the audiobook edition of The Importance of Being Aisling by Emer McLysaght and Sarah Breen, read by Amy McAllister.

Meet Aisling.
She's a country girl learning to love the city sophistication of unlimited Pinot Greej and brunch, though smashed avocado still mystifies her. She can plan anything, from Secret Santa for her ungrateful colleagues to a hen party for not one but two brides.
But even Aisling is thrown off course when her job and relationship suddenly go up in smoke.
Life in the city was supposed to be glamorous and grown-up, but all at once she's heading home to live with her mother. (Not without a detour to Vegas first - she's unemployed and single, not dead.)
But between making new friends and rivals, and finding her eye caught by a very handsome but very unavailable new man, going home is full of surprises. Could small town life actually hold the answers Aisling is missing?

People can't get enough of Aisling:

'The year's funniest book to date' Hello

'Will have you shedding a tear as well as laughing your socks off' Fabulous
