What reviewers said:An original voice, a modern tale, and above all, an unputdownable read. (Michael Scott, RTE’s Book Presenter “Open House”)
The characters are flawless and deal superbly with the emotional conflicts of modern day life. There is something in this novel that everyone can relate to and the only thing that’s hard to believe is that this is Tracy Culleton’s debut novel. (Woman’s Way Magazine)
This is an amazing book from a first-time writer. It is a gripping story that deals with a difficult topic in a sensitive and moving way. A real page turner that will have you hooked from start to finish. It wil have you in tears. READ IT IF … You’re looking for a read you can’t put down. (Woman’s Way magazine, again)
- Tracy Culleton’s first book is a gem; well written and tackling [a thorny topic] with a sensitivity well beyond her writing experience. This woman knows how to write. I expected chick-lit but I was wrong! (Evening Herald Newspaper)
- This debut from Tracy Culleton is a gritty read that doesn’t shy away from real life issues […]. It’s obvious why Tracy was the winner of Poolbeg’s Open House ’Write a Bestseller’ competition. (Sunday World Newspaper)
- This is an extraordinarily impressive first novel. … I couldn’t put this book down. I wandered through airports oblivious to my surroundings, and the flight to Athens was gone in a flash. This is the best book I’ve read from the Poolbeg stable since the launch of Marian Keyes in 1995. (Books Ireland Magazine)
- When I started reading [Looking Good] I was immediately impressed by the high quality of Culleton’s writing. Culleton’s roller coaster plot constantly suprises, yet it never feels forced. It’s not easy to have a character facing such a dilemma … and Culleton handles it all with consummate skill. She writes in the first person but the other characters are equally well drawn and believable. She doesn’t clutter the book with unnecessary characters either. All have lives and stories of their own to add authenticity to the whole. That the book is simply unputdownable as well as beautifully written is a bonus. I read it on a plane and it kept me gripped through a night I’d intended to sleep through. (Irish Examiner newspaper)
