'Missing Pieces of Sophie McCarthy' - BM Carroll (*click to buy)

Sophie McCarthy is known for her determination, ambition and brilliance. She's tough, but only because she wants to get the best out of people.

Aidan Ryan is strong, honourable, and a family man. He's tough too; the army requires it.
Now Sophie's life is in ruins and Aidan is responsible. Her family wants to see him pay for what he did. His family is just as devastated.

Aidan's prepared to sacrifice everything - including his marriage and his child - to fix the mess he's made.
But Sophie, who is facing a lifetime of pain, is darker and much more complicated than she first appeared . . .

Ber Carroll was born in Blarney, a small village in Ireland. The third child of six, reading was her favourite pastime (and still is!). Ber moved to Sydney in 1995 and spent her early career working in finance. Her work colleagues were speechless when she revealed that she had written a novel that was soon to be published. Ber now writes full time and is the author of eight novels, including Once Lost, Worlds Apart and Less Than Perfect. The Missing Pieces of Sophie McCarthy is her first book published under the name B M Carroll.
