Pleasant book, bit slow in places and I felt maybecould have been done with the characters and one small gripe of mine would be the amount of padding in the the book, they padded all over their houses, does nobody walk around any Overall enjoyable read though. A great yarn about the residents of an Irish street where everyone knows everyone s business, but in the nicest possible way.

the ticket is missing, and with tensions running high and secrets abounding, will the residents of the Terrace be able to portray their street on camera as it once was And will their friendships survive the upheaval of the search for the ticket I loved how the residents of the Terrace genuinely cared for each other, it is rare to see in today s society and it should be celebrated I liked how Maggie held them all together, she was like a true Irish Mammy and looked after them all, often to the detriment of herself i adored Marco, he was an amazing character and there was never a dull moment with him around There were a number of twists in this plot, and I always judge how good a book is by whether I can guess the twists before they are revealed In this case I didn t, they were unpredictable and made this book a real page turner I m on my way out to buy Any Dream Will Do right now, I need to readby Maria Duffy Originally reviewed at ve known Maria from Twitter for almost a

reviewed at ve known Maria from Twitter for almost a year so when she asked me if I wanted to read her book, I was over the moon She s absolutely lovely and hilarious and I couldn t wait to read The Terrace But and saying it makes me cringe so bad I want to hide behind my desk in utter embarrassment no matter how much I wanted to love this book, I just didn t I couldn t I loved the idea of the missing ticket and this mystery element in the story but the book as a whole just wasn t for me.What I did like about the novel, apart from the story of the missing lottery ticket, is its characters I love the fact that they re ordinary people just like us, which makes them easily relatable for us readers I found Marco in particular really adorable and someone who actually reminded me of a friend of mine he was definitely my favourite character and he put a smile on my face every time I picked the book up.What really bugged me, though, and what eventually put me off as ridiculous as it will sound was the author s overuse of names and exclamation marks I know it s important to differentiate the two orspeakers in a dialogue but when it s clear who is speaking to whom I don t think it s necessary to use people s names in every single sentence I know there are people who do talk like that in real life but most of us don t and it s both unnecessary and slightly annoying after a while As for exclamation marks, I ve seen this overuse in a few other books and I just don t get it I mean, using them in a dialogue or at the end of a sentence which expresses enthusiasm or surprise is one thing and it s totally fine But closing almost every chapter with it and using it in sentences where you don t need them at all makes the text at least for a weird grammar freak like me a bit awkward And as much as I didn t want to let it affect me or bother me and as much as I tried to concentrate on the plot only, this false enthusiasm or bad editing was starting to give me a headache Mind you, I ve checked every single review onand Goodreads and no one mentioned it or the overuse of names so it might be just me, I don t know But it did put me off and this is why, despite the fact that the story was interesting, I m only giving this book 3 stars.I really wanted to love this book I really did But it wasn t for me, unfortunately I don t know if it s because I ve been readingserious books lately and I m just not in the mood for something light like this or if it s something else I might have to give it another try in the summer and see what I think then Having read Maria Duffy s d but
