I can’t believe how long it is since I last featured one of my favourite writers, Sheila O’Flanagan, here on Linda’s Book Bag. Then I helped reveal the cover of her novel, Christmas With You. Also on the blog Sheila previously told me all about her inspiration for another of her books My Mother’s Secret in a guest post that you can read here. I reviewed My Mother’s Secret here. With Sheila’s latest book Her Husband’s Mistake out in paperback on 5th March, I’m delighted to have a copy on my TBR waiting to be read.
I’m absolutely thrilled to be staying in with Sheila today to hear all about Her Husband’s Mistake and I’d like to thank Anne at Random Things Tours for inviting me to participate in these launch celebrations.
Staying in with Sheila O’Flanagan
Welcome back to Linda’s Book Bag, Sheila. Thank you for agreeing to stay in with me. I’m sure I know, but tell me, which of your books have you brought along to share this evening and why have you chosen it?
Her Husband’s Mistake. It’s my latest book and I’m still very close to the characters so they come everywhere with me.
I can imagine it’s hard to shake off characters when you’ve been writing about them for so long. What can we expect from an evening in with Her Husband’s Mistake?
You’ll travel around Ireland with Roxy who has taken over her late father’s business as a chauffeur. She meets lots of different people in her job and all of them impact in her life in some way. She also has plenty of time to think , which she needs to do as her marriage is crumbling, she has two kids to consider and she’s worried about her recently widowed mum who’s acting strangely.
Now I’m intrigued. I’m so pleased to have a copy of Her Husband’s Mistake waiting to be read.
What else have you brought along and why have you brought it?
I’ve brought my iPad so that I can update my Insta feed with pix of our night in! Because Roxy has learned to use Insta in her job, I’ve started to use it too. It’s a much cheerier place than a lot of social media and I’ve really got into taking photos even though I’ve never been much of a snapper in the past. My own feed seems to be dominated by shoes and cocktails!!! Presumably we’re going to have some of the latter, so they’ll be a perfect fit.
That sounds like a plan to me! I’m rather fond of a Mai Tai. If I open up my Insta account maybe you can show me how to use it as I haven’t a clue! Thanks so much for staying in with me Sheila. Let me pass you a Margarita whilst I tell everyone a bit more about Her Husband’s Mistake.
Her Husband’s Mistake
Dave’s made a BIG mistake. What’s Roxy going to do about it? The riveting new novel from No. 1 bestselling author Sheila O’Flanagan. Perfect for readers of Marian Keyes and Amanda Prowse.
Roxy’s marriage has always been rock solid.
After twenty years, and with two carefree kids, she and Dave are still the perfect couple.
Until the day she comes home unexpectedly, and finds Dave in bed with their attractive, single neighbour.
Suddenly Roxy isn’t sure about anything – her past, the business she’s taken over from her dad, or what her family’s future might be. She’s spent so long caring about everyone else that she’s forgotten what she actually wants. But something has changed. And Roxy has a decision to make.
Whether it’s with Dave, or without him, it’s time for Roxy to start living for herself…
Her Husband’s Mistake that is available for purchase through the publisher links here.
