Emer McLysaght and Sarah Breen will no doubt delight their many fans across the country with this, the third book in their phenomenally successful Aisling series. The sharply observant duo have been hovering around the top of the Irish bestseller list since their debut, Oh My God, What a Complete Aisling!, hit the shelves in 2018.

Once, Twice, Three Times an Aisling continues their self-effacing heroine’s journey as she negotiates her life and times in her home town of Ballygobbard on the cusp of her 30th birthday.
