Sharon Owens
Genre: Fiction
Published: 2005
Personal Rating: 3/5
Yearly Count: 62

Daniel and Penny Stanley own and live above Muldoon's Tea Rooms in Belfast, Ireland. Their lives and the regulars of Muldoon's are revealed - both the good and the bad.

My first attempt at listening to this book didn't make it past the first CD. I thought I'd give it another try and I was successful, but was surprised as to much of the content. My interest in finding out the resolutions to all the characters' dilemmas became the focus of getting through the book. It wasn't the characters themselves that held my attention. Quirky characters are usually intriguing to me, but many of these people had no morals. That shut down my ability to get emotionally involved with them. I gave it a 3/5 because I liked how Owens weaved all the characters together without being blatant, otherwise it would have been in the 2's.


  1. At least you finished! I gave up after 80 pages. My review can be found here.

  2. Les ~ :) This turned out to be nothing like what I expected. The cover is deceiving.


Thank you for taking the time to comment. :)

I hope you have a great day and ...
Happy Reading!
