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.
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
A touching, tender, often funny story about love in all its messy, uncertain glory . . . with a hero who will find a place in your heart.―Julie Cohen on NOW THAT I'VE FOUND YOU

About the author
Top reviews from other countries
The story begins with a bank robbery and as each character narrates their own views of the bank robbery, as a reader I was able to understand how a horrible moment in time can change the lives of a few people, what made these characters special was how different they were to each other, and how the bank robbery changed each of them forever. The first main character for me was Martha who was not only coping with the bank robbery but also the addiction to alcohol and I really do admire how the author brought this across and I fully understood how and why Martha had this addiction but it took a bank robbery to awaken her senses to the world around her and the one man she only every loved. The man she loved just happened to be the Detective who was investigating the bank robbery and it was great to read how this duo really connected with each other, and Martha's one-liners were so funny at times even when they were not to be. These are only two of the characters, there are a few more which really add to the storyline and their personalities really added to the storyline.
This is Now written by Ciara Geraghty is one excellent read which I am happy to recommend.
