Last Chance Saloon by Marian Keyes
Book Description'I'm in the Last Chance Saloon. In my decrepit, thirty-one-year-old state, I'd probably never get another man'. Tara, Katherine and Fenton have been best friends since they were teenagers. Now in their early thirties, they've been living it up in London for ten years. But what have they got to show for it? Sure, Tara's got her boyfriend - but she loves retail therapy so much more. Katherine, on the other hand, is a serial singleton whose neatness fetish won't let a man mess up her life. And Fenton? Well, Fenton has everything. Until he gets ill and he has to ask himself: what have you got if you haven't got your health? All three are drinking in the last chance saloon and they're about to discover that if you don't change your life, life has a way of changing you...

Rachel's Holiday, Paperback (August 2012)» View all books by Marian Keyes
Rachel Walsh has a pair of size 8 feet and such a fondness for recreational drugs that her family has forked out the cash for a spell in Cloisters - Dublin's answer to the Betty Ford Clinic. She's only agreed to her incarceration because she's heard that rehab is wall-to-wall jacuzzis, and it's about time she had a holiday.
UK Kirkus Review » From the author of the bestselling Rachel's Holiday, this book is a monster of laugh from page one. Take three friends from Knockavoy, County Clare: food-obsessed Tara, meticulous Katherine and club-crazy Fintan. Speed them through to the age of 31 and life in Camden Town, London. Add Liv, the Amazon-like Swede, and Sandro, Fintan's little Latin lover, then throw in Joe and Lorcan and you have a recipe for mayhem. This is the world of the LCT - the Last Chance Trendy. A hot-headed, warm-hearted read, awash with humour and pathos, the value of friendship and the desire to find true love in the shadow of the millennium. (Kirkus UK)
US Kirkus Review » In the "Bridget Jones "tradition, young singles in London conquer self-esteem problems before finding true love: a witty if predictable fourth novel from Keyes ("Lucy Sullivan is Getting Married", 1999 etc.). Katherine, Tara, and Fintan moved to London together from their small Irish hometown and have remained best friends into their early '30s, even though they seem to have little in common. Overly self-controlled Katherine comes across as an Ice Queen. In fact, that's her less-than-flattering nickname at the advertising firm where she is an accountant. When a fellow worker gently flirts with her, Katherine is so afraid of her own feelings that she accuses him of sexual harassment. Tara is Katherine's opposite: desperate for affection, she clings to her boyfriend Thomas despite his consistently rude and unpleasant behavior. Softhearted Tara also eats compulsively. (Keyes perfectly captures the overweight overeater's mindset.) Only Fintan, who is gay and in the fashion industry, natch, has found happiness and true love with Sandro, "the Italian Pony" (he's too small to be a stallion). Then Fintan becomes seriously ill. It's not AIDS, but with a cancer that requires intensive chemotherapy. Fintan's mother and brothers arrive from Ireland and stay in Katherine's apartment, disrupting her perfect order, while Thomas refuses even to accompany Tara to the hospital. Possibly near death's door, Fintan exacts promises from his friends to bring some happiness into their lives. He wants Tara to dump the awful Thomas and Katherine to take a chance with her office suitor, the charming and genuinely nice Joe Roth. Meanwhile, their very sophisticated Swedish friend Liv falls madly in love with Fintan's very unsophisticated older brother Milo, a farmer who has never seen an escalator until now. Will Tara leave Thomas and get back to a size eight? Will Katherine cheat herself out of her big chance for romantic happiness? Will Fintan recover? Will Milo move back to the farm? No surprises, but a pleasant read. (Kirkus Reviews)
