From the author of Semi-Sweet comes a delightful new novel about the art of friendship, love, and (still) life.
When Audrey Matthews offers an evening class in life drawing, all she's looking for is a little extra pocket money and something to fill her Tuesday nights. So she hires a model and recruits five students - each of whom have their own reason for being there. For Zarek, a Polish immigrant, the class is a welcome distraction and a place to escape his dull cafe job and noisy roommate. Then there's the handsome, mysterious James who has moved to the small town of Carrickbawn looking for a new start for himself and his daughter. He's vowed to keep to himself, but then his interest in Jackie, the class model and single mom, takes a more personal turn. While Audrey has just fallen in love -- with the adorable puppy in the window of the local pet shop. Will she be put off by the store's brusque owner or does she find out that his bark is worse than his bite? As the weeks pass, it becomes clear to the members of the drawing class that their fellow students aren't exactly who they seem...

About the Author:

Roisin Meaney was born in Listowel, Co Kerry, Ireland. She has lived in the US, Canada, Africa, and Europe. In 2002, Roisin won the Tivoli Write a Bestseller competition with her first novel, The Daisy Picker, which was subsequently followed by Putting Out Stars. Roisin is currently based in Limerick. LIFE DRAWING FOR BEGINNERS is her seventh book.

Review:

"I loved Life Drawing for Beginners. From the start, I was caught up by the characters and increasingly intrigued as the threads of their lives entwine. Like the life drawing class in which they meet, we come to see them in their bare and poignant beauty. Roisin Meaney perfectly times her revelations to keep us glued to the page. This is a charming, fast-paced book that stays with the reader for a very long time." (Barbara Delinsky, New York Times bestselling author of ESCAPE)

"SEMI-SWEET is wise, witty, and wonderful. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. It's going to sell like cupcakes." (Debbie Macomber, #1 New York Times bestselling author)

"Roisin Meaney serves up a tale as charming and delicious as a homemade cupcake. Hannah, the main character, is endearing, funny, insecure, and unforgettable. I savored every bit of this romantic and deeply true novel, right up to the surprising ending." (Susan Wiggs)

"Fans of Maeve Binchy will love Roisin Meaney. Semi-Sweet is an endearing, insightful story of self-discovery, empowerment, love, and yes, most deliciously, cupcakes..." (Erica Bauermeister, author of THE SCHOOL OF ESSENTIAL INGREDIENTS)

"A heartwarming tale about the yearning for love, the search for happiness and the importance of friendship--all served up with tea and cupcakes." (Lisa Verge Higgins, author of THE PROPER CARE AND MAINTENANCE OF FRIENDSHIP)

"With writing reminiscent of Maeve Binchy's, Meaney is carving out a niche for herself in this crowded market." (Irish Examiner 2008-01-00)

"Repeatedly and deservedly likened to Maeve Binchy, she is a master of her craft and a gifted storyteller. She has outdone herself with a skillful plot, memorable characters and the ability to leave the reader wanting more. If you are a Binchy fan, I would highly recommend you get to know Meaney too." (Irish Independent 2009-01-00)
