Book Review: What Happened That Night by Sheila O’Flanagan

January 18, 2019 Book review 1 ★★★★★

What Happened That Night by Sheila O’Flanagan is my second book by this author this week, and I had forgotten what lovely reads her books are. This one features a jewellery designer and her passion for her work was hugely inspiring.

When Lola Fitzpatrick catches the eye of Philip Warren, she's new to Dublin and loving it. He's used to getting what he wants...and she can't resist him. Until one night he forces her to make an impossible choice.

If she'd known then what she knows now, everything might have been different.


Lola's daughter Bey has inherited her mother's impulsive streak and it takes her down dangerous paths.

Then one night she too finds herself in front of a man she loves, with impossible choices of her own to make.

For both women, what happened that night changes everything. For better. For worse. For ever.

BOOKLOVE Page-Turner swoon! Well Written

My thoughts on What Happened That Night by Sheila O’Flanagan:

Bey has family issues to work through, and man issues as none of her men last longer than a jar of coffee! I found her to be such a believable, authentic and loveable character.  Her journey is a fun and challenging one to follow, and I literally couldn’t put the book down as I wanted to know what would happen next.

We also get her mother’s story.  Getting that insight was great, as it showed us how Bey developed strengths and where her weaknesses stemmed from.  I loved Lola too, and how she always tried to do her best for her daughter.

I’ve been feeling a little down lately, and this book has made me stop wallowing and search for what my own passions are. And to start focusing on them again.  Bey was so inspiring as she knew what she wanted in life, and never settled for less than her dreams.

I love when a book is uplifting and stimulating. And these characters embody strength and power, especially the power that comes from recognising the error of your own ways and moving on from that
