Overview

"one of the most enjoyable books I have read in ages, I really could not put it down" (Woman’s Way 2004, review of print edition)
"Daly is a good storyteller and depicts life at home and the world of business equally well" (Irish Independent 2005)

Senior executive Maeve Larkin loses her childminder, just as she is finalising a major merger at work. Everyone at work is relying on her to make a huge success of the deal but her husband Fintan just wants her to spend more time with the family.

Maybe fate is forcing her to choose between the job she loves and the children she adores. But Maeve suspects she would go crazy at home.

So when Fintan decides to take time off to be a stay-at-home dad, is it guilt that pushes Maeve to work even longer hours or is it her suspicion that her job is in danger?

Then ex-boyfriend James reappears, driving a wedge between Maeve and Fintan. Now Maeve's finally balanced life is looking decidedly shaky...

All Shook Up-
A novel about the working parents in Celtic Tiger Dublin. A story of love, careers, trust and family. Can Fintan adapt to being a house-husband and can Maeve keep conflict at work or will it inevitably spill home and into her marriage? A novel that asks the question- can you have it all, or is there always a price to be paid?

Meet the Author

Although I qualified and worked as a pharmacist, I started writing during a career break after my second child was born.
My first book, "All Shook Up" was published in 2004 by Poolbeg Press, and "Charlotte's Way" and "A French Affair" followed in 2005 and 2006.
I have only just got around to converting them to e-books for readers who didn't get a chance to read them when they were in print.
