The Perfect Man
By Sheila O'Flanagan
Sheila O'Flanagan was a No. 1 Sunday Times paperback bestseller in the UK and a No. 1 Irish Times bestseller in Ireland with her most recent novel, SOMEONE SPECIAL. The repackage of her titles and transfer to hardback launch have helped to consolidate her position amongst the cream of women's fiction writers
From a bestselling brand author comes a captivating novel about family ties, romance and leaving the past behind
Two very different sisters, Mia (still in love with Alejo, the married father of her daughter) and Britt (the ice maiden, who has ironically written a romantic bestseller), join a luxury honeymoon cruise in the Caribbean where Britt is the guest lecturer. Also on board are recently widowed Leo, still reeling from the discovery of his wife's betrayal just before her death, and Steve, a ship's officer who's soon looking for more than a holiday romance with Mia. Can Steve replace Alejo and is there any chance that Britt and Leo can see that they really should get together? When the characters head for home - Mia to Spain, the others to Dublin - it seems that all romantic options are off, especially as Leo rashly got engaged to glamorous, man-eating Pippin while at sea. But love has a way of triumphing in Sheila O'Flanagan's novels, even if it takes till the very last page...
Sheila O'Flanagan pursued a very successful career in banking, foreign exchange dealing and treasury management before becoming a full-time writer based in Dublin. She also writes a regular column for the Irish Times and in her spare time plays competitive badminton.
