Title: This Model Life Author: Andrew O'Connor Genre: Dublin (Ireland) Publisher: Poolbeg Press Release Date: 2005-01-01 Pages: 663

This book was given to me as I work in the world of Irish PR, not quite as glitzy as the one portrayed in this book, but familiar nonetheless.

Title: Love Hurts Author: Linda Kavanagh Genre: Ireland Publisher: Poolbeg Press Release Date: Jan 1 2004 Pages: 504

The cover of this book is deceptive. It would lead me to believe that this book was just another standard chick lit novel but it isn’t, it’s much more.
