This is Now
By Ciara Geraghty
Honest and wise, poignant and warm, this is completely absorbing storytelling for fans of Marian Keyes and Jojo Moyes.
An ordinary day. An ordinary bank. An ordinary street in an ordinary town. Nothing ever happens, until, one day, a shocking robbery turns life upside down for five people:
Cillian, a police detective,
Martha, the woman he thought was the life of his life,
Tobias, who came to Ireland after WWII and now lies in a coma, shot in the bank robbery,
Roman, the young Polish teenager who is suspected of pulling the trigger
and his mother Rosa, the cleaner, who dreamed of a better life for herself and her son . . .
. . . and things will never be ordinary again.
Ciara Geraghty's writing has that rare ability to make you laugh out loud as well as cry. She combines tangled human relationships with humour, romance and warmth to create something truly special.
Ciara Geraghty is the author of five previous novels, SAVING GRACE, BECOMING SCARLETT, FINDING MR FLOOD, LIFESAVING FOR BEGINNERS and NOW THAT I'VE FOUND YOU, which was shortlisted for the RNA Contemporary Romantic Novel Award in 2015. She lives in Dublin with her husband, three children and dog.

I'm so pleased to have found Ciara! What a wonderful book - I loved it. I thought it had such heart and depth, and the characters were so real. I genuinely didn't want it to end. — Lucy Diamond on NOW THAT I'VE FOUND YOU
A smart, realistic and gritty love story . . . You will feel all the feelings - we can't remember the last time we rooted for two characters quite as much. Geraghty also deals very sensitively with mental health problems, and goes out of her way not to paint the other halves in the broken relationships as "baddies" . . . A romantic story with its feet firmly planted in the grittiness of real life. — Heat on NOW THAT I'VE FOUND YOU
Ciara Geraghty is a superb writer . . . She's the Irish Jojo Moyes, of Me Before You fame. Like Moyes, her books are meticulously researched, beautifully written, and infused with warmth, humour and human understanding. — Irish Examiner
My favourite author does it again in this superbly written perceptive, poignant novel that makes you laugh and cry! Oh, I envy you the read of this. Treat yourself to a brilliant book! — Patricia Scanlan on NOW THAT I'VE FOUND YOU
