Lifesaving for Beginners Paperback – Jan. 22 2013
Purchase options and add-ons
Kat Kavanagh is not in love. She has lots of friends, an ordinary job, and she never ever thinks about her past.
This is Kat's story. None of it is true.
Milo McIntyre loves his mam, the peanut-butter-and-banana muffins at the Funky Banana café, and the lifesaving class he does after school. He never thinks about his future, until the day it changes forever.
This is Milo's story. All of it is true.
And then there is the other story. The one with a twist of fate which somehow brings together a boy from Brighton and a woman in Dublin, and uncovers the truth once and for all.
This is the story that's just about to begin . . .
'Heart-breaking and funny, poignant and life affirming. It is a story of fate and family, and shows you are never too old or young to start lifesaving.'―www.novelicious.com on LIFESAVING FOR BEGINNERS
'Hilarious . . . But there's death and guilt, too, in this sometimes dark, tear-jerking novel' ****―Company on SAVING GRACE
Sad, funny and wise―Marie Claire on FINDING MR FLOOD
Move over Marian, it's Ciara . . . impressive and highly entertaining [with] one of the most authentic female characters I've read in women's fiction for a long time . . . lots of biting humour and a darker side beneath the laughs.―Irish Independent on SAVING GRACE
Made me laugh and cry and sometimes both at the same time. A very emotional read that I just could not put down.―www.debrasbookcafe.blogspot.co.uk on LIFESAVING FOR BEGINNERS
I love Ciara Geraghty's easy style of writing and how she manages to create such a beautiful warm and moving storyline.―www.reabookreviews.blogspot.co.uk on LIFESAVING FOR BEGINNERS
I just can't get over how charming this book was. It was a delight to read―www.chicklitcentral.com on FINDING MR FLOOD
Definitely her best yet . . . What is so fabulous about this emotional, very readable book is the way it's told through the contrasting voices of Kat and Milo . . . Clever, poignant and absorbing―Fabulous magazine on LIFESAVING FOR BEGINNERS
Beautifully written―Image on LIFESAVING FOR BEGINNERS
A beautifully written, somewhat whimsical and very encouraging tale about grabbing hold of life's reins, breaking away from the monotony of a dull routine and following your dreams . . . emotional, joyous . . . I adored it.―Daily Mail on FINDING MR FLOOD
A beautifully written story that offers vivid, believable characters who will stay with you long after the final page―Press Association on LIFESAVING FOR BEGINNERS
'Spectacular . . . LIFESAVING FOR BEGINNERS is a novel that needs to be seen and needs to be read. It not only has a beautiful, simplistic cover, but it also has a beautiful inside too, with two characters who you really feel you know . . . I really do recommend you pick up this book.'―www.chicklitreviewsandnews.com

The characters are well written and why I didn't want the story to end. I'd really like to have Milo and Ed as part of my family. They both deserve a follow up book. Please!
A great read, highly recommended. Can't wait for the next one.
