I felt that I could hear the Irish brogue throughout the book, and I loved that. That manner of speaking is so different than American slang and I thoroughly appreciated hearing the characters speak in my head. It was positively lovely.
There is quite a bit happening in this piece, from Rachel's breakup to her road trip to finding new love (not so much a spoiler since you could guess by the title it involves romance) to happiness (again, same thing) to unexpected danger at the last minute. I won't give away the details, since everyone deserves a chance to read for themselves. Just know that it's twisty and curvy--just like life.
If you love intense description, this is definitely the book for you. I found the often-occurring detail a bit too tedious and often found myself skimming; interesting in everyday life, yes, but a bit heavy for fun reading. However, come for Rachel--positively messy and relentlessly open to who she might really be.
