Description of this Book

Distance makes no difference to love... Cassie Fitzgerald and her gran have returned to Ireland's Finfarran peninsula from a holiday in Resolve, the little American town where generations of Finfarran's emigrants have settled. When Cassie persuades librarian Hanna Casey to set up a transatlantic book club on Skype, new links are forged between readers in Finfarran and their friends and relations across the ocean. But, as the book club settles down to its choice of a classic detective novel, secrets from the members' past emerge, exposing old conflicts and love affairs. And, as Cassie learns more about her gentle granny's own family secrets, how will the truths she uncovers affect her dream of finding true love?
