Novel of the Week - Breakfast at Darcy’s by Ali McNamara

                       

I admit I have a problem when it comes to book’s titles…every book that has “breakfast” or “Tiffany” in it, automatically catches my attention.

It happened with “Something at Tiffany’s” by Melissa Hill and after have hated almost ¾ of the book I promised myself not to fall again for a book only because I love Tiffany…The only exception I made was for Breakfast at Darcy’s by Ali McNamara. It doesn’t have anything to do with Breakfast at Tiffany’s by Truman Capote and here’s the plot:

Darcy McCall is a beauty and health editor for a female magazine in London, but her parents were Irish. She’s devastated when her beloved aunt Molly died and that’s not the only news…Aunt Molly left her Tara, an island in the North side of Ireland. At first, Darcy doesn’t know what to do with that island, she loves London!! But then she decided to go there, mainly because when she found herself fired, without a penny and aunt Molly left her a little fortune, but Darcy can have it only after having spent a year on Tara and making it a place where people want to go to spent some time in the nature without any tecnologies…

Darcy has to go there with a bunch of people and thye have to be 15 or more for the entire year.  
She goes back in Ireland and start casting people who wants to live on Tara. Her best friend and roommate Roxie went with her and also Niall Kearney, Darcy’s Irish lawyer. She also finds Conor, a confident and charming boy and Dermot, an Irish stubborn man, who will be the fact totum when it comes of plumbing and house problems. Darcy has quite an hard time dealing with her new life: no more high heel shoes and designers clothes, but boots and hard outside work.
There will be also incredible revelations and discoveries, heart problems and Darcy will understand than she only thought she knew aunt Molly.

This novel is sparkling, full of sense of humor and hilarious conversations. I didn't understand the "breakfast" of the title, but it's a good novel anyway!
Ali McNamara did an awesome job! 

My vote : 7 / 10
