About The Book


'One of Scanlan's great strengths is her gift for writing fully rounded characters, and this is Scanlan at her very best' Irish Independent

The City Girls are back!

As City Girl, Devlin Delaney’s iconic gym and spa prepares to mark a big anniversary, her best friends, Caroline and Maggie are looking forward to a fabulous party where they can all put their problems behind them and celebrate.

Devlin’s past has returned to haunt her, with a shocking revelation. But she’s strong and her beloved Luke has her back.

Caroline is facing up to issues she’s long suppressed, with the help of a man who’s becoming more than a friend. Will happiness finally be hers?

Maggie’s family is driving her mad. Her ex, Terry, and their daughter don’t get on, and she’s made an alarming discovery about her elderly mother’s financial affairs. She wants to run far, away.

Sparks are going to fly, and some people are going to get a lot more than they bargained for!

Once a City Girl, a City Girl Forever. Nothing will stop their celebration . . . or will it?

Praise for City Girls Forever:

‘I LOVE this book. There is a real sense of these wise women who are dealing with life, the menopause, their careers and being in charge of their own mental health and yet having great friends. I think it's Patricia Scanlan's strongest book ever!’ Cathy Kelly

‘I BAWLED, roared laughing and was on the edge of my seat. It's a masterclass in storytelling - so many strands!! Patricia Scanlan is at the absolutely top of her game. Readers are in for such a treat, Scanlan has returned our girls to us and they are as loveable and as relatable as they ever were’ Ciara Geraghty

‘It felt like I’d just bumped into such great old friends… ones I haven’t seen since school and have missed SO much, and am desperately wanting to know everything that’s happened to them… I was in book heaven’ Caroline Grace-Cassidy
