All Shook Up
Daly is a good storyteller and depicts life at home and the world of business equally well. (She)..easily brings the readers through the difficult highs and lows as Maeve weaves her way through a difficult period at work and attempts to keep her marriage intact.(Irish Independent)
What I liked about the book is the believability factor, Daly's characters could be any Joan or Joe Soap. When she writes about Maeve's workplace she really sounds like she knows what she's talking about. Whether well done research or based on personal experience, it is a good trait and one that too many modern authors fall down on. (Bibliofemme.ie)
Catherine Daly has a gift for capturing ‘real-life’ dialogue…one of the most enjoyable books I have read in ages, I really could not put it down. (Woman’s Way)
…explores with great maturity the crisis facing many young couples trying to juggle kids and a career. (Evening Herald)
An intelligent read for the modern working mum. (Sunday World)
Her characters are believable and her storyline is just gripping enough without being over the top.
Watch out for Daly, she could very well be the next Maeve Binchy. (Bibliofemme)
...a heartwarming family tale about discovery, love, longing and friendship...(In Dublin)
...Fast becoming an author to be reckoned with..
...brilliant attention to detail and a friendship story that everyone will relate to.
...Catherine Daly has definitely delivered a great book once again. (Woman's Way)
A French Affair
Daly has a good storytelling voice with a talent for shaping a story. Set in the Dordogne region of France, A French Affair has it all (Sunday Independent)
This book grabbed me straight away. I loved reading this novel and would definitely recommend it... Beautifully evocative descriptions of the Dordogne...(Woman's Way)
