A light read
Breakfast at Darcy's was an enjoyable light novel. I purchased this after reading Ali McNamara's other novel from "Notting Hill to New York Actually" which I really enjoyed. The setting for this novel on a remote island off the coast of Ireland is different. I found the story interesting but felt there could have been more detail on the roles the people coming to live on the island were going to play. There were areas for instance, Darcy going to buy chocolate at the shop, what shop? In the planning for the island settlement there had been no mention of the shop. I would have preferred a bit more detail, however having said that I really enjoyed the book it was light and a bit different.
I loved the way the author bought the characters to life I felt you really got to know and like them.
I couldn't compare it with other chic lit novels this was not your usual romance more of an light interesting story with a touch of romance.
Beth Chalmer's performance was fine. I have not heard her other performances.
I am not sure this title was the right one. I feel it implies Darcy may have run a cafe or something. What else to call it? I do not know.

Such a scenic novel!
The novel was very well written. I like the descriptions of the country. Divine.
I have not heard any of Beth Chalmers books before but having said that she was an enjoyable voice.
