Out of the Blue by Gretta Mulrooney

After inheriting her grandmother’s cottage in Cork, Liv leaves London to clear her head and think things through while her husband goes to a clinic to try to get his alcoholism under control. She unexpectedly runs into her first love, Aidan, who is now living near her grandmother’s little town, and sparks fly.

Out of the Blue is a horrible book. Most of the characters are incredibly selfish and think it is no big deal to have an affair. There are three affairs in the book and they all ruin lives, but that doesn’t seem to be much of an issue to participants. It’s like if you are unhappy in your marriage, feel free to step out on your husband or wife. As if the terrible plot wasn’t enough, the writing is sometimes hard to follow due to tense and incredibly boring and slow much of the time. The end is ridiculous and abrupt like the author had no idea how to actually write an ending to a book. I most definitely do not recommend reading this book.
