Ever since legwarmers were cool, best friends Tara, Katherine, and Fintan have survived small-town ennui, big-city heartbreak, and endless giddy nights out on the town. But now that they've graduated to their slightly more serious thirties, only Fintan has what can honestly be called a "love life." With Tara struggling daily with her eternal diet—and her dreadful, penny-pinching boyfriend—and Katherine keeping her single existence as organized as her drawer full of matching bra and panty sets, it seems they'll never locate the exit door out of the "last chance saloon." But it's always when you are least ready for change that fate insists on one. And when catastrophe inevitably follows crisis, the lives of three best friends are sure to change in unexpected ways ... and not necessarily for the worse. You devoured the hilarious antics of Claire in Watermelon. You laughed 'til you cried in Lucy Sullivan Is Getting Married. You took a vacation gone mad in Rachel's Holiday. You flew away with Margaret—good girl gone bad—in Angels. You got a peek inside the cutthroat world of women's fashion magazines in Sushi for Beginners. Now, raise your glass to Tara, Katherine, and Fintan in Last Chance Saloon.

Maybe it's because I keep thinking that the ending of the book will unexpectedly change. I fell in love with the main characters in this b...
Three friends who have been together since forever in Ireland now live in Ireland and have to deal with their complicated love lives.
No, this is not great literature. It isn't perfect, it may not even the one of the best Marian Keyes books. What it is is funny, gentle, sweet and relatively calm - exactly what I've been needing to read. In typical Keyes fashion, the characters are all terrible flawed and all the more likeable for ...
I like Marian Keyes. I think it's the Irish Accent. This book was grand, as she'd say. Entertaining and in no way thought provoking. Sometimes i need a bit of that.
I'm just not a fan of Marian Keyes, I am finding out. This is the second book by her that I've read and I haven't really liked either.
