Most of the female protagonists are returning to the Dublin of their youth after finding success elsewhere: a former maid comes back to meet the son she gave up for adoption; a faded movie starlet's luck takes a strangely positive turn; a nun looks for a man to sleep with. Seven authors, including Maeve Binchy, Clare Boylan, Anne Haverty and Deirdre Purcell, each contribute a chapter describing the adventures of different guests in the hotel, but none is attributed, so it's up to the reader to guess who wrote what.

I do not know what I expected. I had never heard of the book nor of the first book at Finbar's Hotel. Maeve Binchy's and Kate Riordan's novels are absorbing reading, so I thought "Fine, I'll read this."

First the ladies at Finbar's were definitely individuals--all of them dysfunctional, but they were winners in every tale. The book dealt with problems that were not specifically everyday problems, but they were familiar and modern. However,the resolutions to their problems were unusual and laughable. The endings always moved me to be ready to read the next story.

I liked the way continuity was maintained by insertions of details rather than studied incidents that interrupted the story.

The ladies were fallible, like all of us. I laughed at the lady who did not know what to do with the computer, so she typed the same characters constantly. I often think in a few years with technology changing so rapidly I will be sitting with the newest phone or Ipad or notebook, not having the faintest idea how to use it. I will have to consult my six-year-old grandson.

I recommend the book because it is a pleasure to read. I could relate to the characters, and I liked them.

This is a sometimes touching, sometimes funny story of one night in the nouveau chic Finbar's Hotel of Dublin. You will meet a woman getting impregnated by her best friend's husband, a career woman and her crazy father, a bride-to-be who gets the ultimate revenge on an old boyfriend who did her wrong, a nun looking for love in a most unorthodox manner, a mother reunited with the son she gave up for adoption, a woman who follows her husband to find out if he's cheating on her, and an aging actress who wants to recapture the past. Their paths all cross on one night at this hotel.
I chose the book because I am a big fan of Maeve Binchy and she wrote one of the chapters. Guessing which author wrote which chapter becomes a guessing game for the reader familiar with these authors.
This is not as good as Binchy's own novels, but definitely enjoyable and worth your time.

But not great. I enjoyed the stories but found some a bit predictable. The concept was good.....different stories intermeshed, all taking place in the confines of different rooms of a refurbished old hotel in the city of Dublin. A good book if you are traveling or like something light to read in a couple of days.

I found the stories somewhat odd and disappointing. I think it is ridiculous that they don't tell which author wrote which story. If I knew I could then buy other works by the authors of the stories I did like.

i really think it is a sad representation of author's!!

By Maeve Binchy and excellent read and I am a huge fan. Was suprised to find books available that I had not seen before.

This is a book. It's hard to rate a book on here. In middle of reading it. It is fine so far and the book is in good condition.
Binchey was quality - the other two - not worth the read. Thanks anyway for the great service in delivering the book.
