In association with The Pat Kenny Show on Newstalk 106-108fm

The Pat Kenny Show on Newstalk 106-108 FM partners with the Eason Book Club to help us select our Book of the Month. Each month, Pat and his panel which is made up of Claudia Carroll, Stefanie Preissner and Keith Walsh pick the Eason Book of the Month from a shortlist of four books compiled by the Eason book team. In the last week of every month the panel will return to discuss the book on air and engage in a lively debate on the characters and themes of the chosen book.

You Love Me by Caroline Kepnes

You Love Me by Caroline Kepnes

Joe Goldberg is done with cities, done with the muck and the posers, done with Love. Now, he's saying hello to nature, to simple pleasures on a cosy island in the Pacific Northwest. For the first time in a long time, he can just breathe.

He gets a job at the local library – he does know a thing or two about books – and that's where he meets her: Mary Kay DiMarco. Librarian. Joe won't meddle, he will not obsess. He'll win her the old fashioned way... by providing a shoulder to cry on, a helping hand. Over time, they'll both heal their wounds and begin their happily ever after in this sleepy town.

The trouble is... Mary Kay already has a life. She's a mother. She's a friend. She's... busy.

True love can only triumph if both people are willing to make room for the real thing. Joe cleared his decks. He's ready. And hopefully, with his encouragement and undying support, Mary Kay will do the right thing and make room for him.

The Summer Job by Lizzy Dent

The Summer Job by Lizzy Dent

Warning: this is not your typical rom com. Have you ever imagined running away from your life? Well Birdy Finch didn't just imagine it. She did it. Which might've been an error. And the life she's run into? Her best friend, Heather's. The only problem is, she hasn't told Heather.

Actually there are a few other problems... Can Birdy carry off a summer pretending to be her best friend (who incidentally is a world-class wine expert)? And can she stop herself from falling for the first man she's ever actually liked (but who thinks she's someone else)?

If you're looking to replace that Fleabag sized hole in your life, look no further: you'll laugh at her, you'll cringe with her but ultimately you'll fall in love with Birdy Finch. For fans of The Flat Share, this is a rom com like you've never seen before, The Summer Job is the hottest read this summer.
