In the tradition of Maeve Binchy, Ms. Meaney spins a tale of Irish village life. Our principal focus is Hannah Robinson, who has just opened a cupcake shop AND been dumped by her boyfriend.

But Hannah is not the only one we’ll meet in tiny Clongarvin. Other folks include:

• Adam, Hannah’s best friend, who has fallen for a musician,
• Leah, the woman who “stole” Hannah’s boyfriend, Patrick, and
• Alice, the friend of Hannah’s mother, who is dealing with a spouse and his substance abuse.

All of the women’s emotional tales evoke bitter and sweet feelings. This was not as cupcake-focused as I wanted it to be, but it was still a decent diversion.
