The final instalment of Summer Flings – a fun, flirty and laugh out loud rom com series of short stories.

Miserable, lonely and broken hearted, Ciara returns to Dublin on a mission to sort out her life. A job is at the top of the list but a visit to the doctor has surprising repercussions.

She refuses to drift apart from her friends now that real life has begun, struggles to fit new relationships into her life and still has to deal with everything else fate throws her way.

But even Ciara should know that there’s always something a little bit special to be found at the end of the rainbow…

The ideal summer treat for those relaxing days soaking up the sun!

Deliver Us to Dublin… With Care is the final instalment in what has been a brilliant summer series by Aimee Duffy. We’ve been brought plenty of laughs, romance and drama and in Dublin, after the fascinating way Flirting in Florence ended, there was a lot to be wrapped up. Having been with Ciara, Elle and Gem on their whole road trip journey, I really feel like I’ll miss the characters but I thought the culmination to the series did their stories justice.

This novella is written in a slightly different format to the previous six, with quite a lot of it being set in emails between the girls. I enjoyed the change in style but would have preferred a little less of the emails and more things actually unfolding in the story. There was a moment where I thought things fell a little flat because we were being told a series of things happening without much chance for a reaction. I did really like how the emails gave us a different insight into the characters emotions though and seeing Aimee still building Ciara, Elle and Gem’s personalities even in the final part of the series was really interesting to read.

The main focus in this book was on Ciara. Back in Dublin, I was intrigued by how things were going to turn out for her and whether she’d get any of the life she hoped for – her friendships and future had been a big talking point throughout the series and of course, I wanted to see if she got her HEA too! It wasn’t the all too typical predictable finish to a series – there were one or two things which took me by surprise and Aimee excels again in her character development and just great writing. I’m sad to see the series end but looking forward to more from this author who definitely has a new fan in me :)
