Full House

United Kingdom Book Cover

Full House by Maeve Binchy is charming short story.  Dee Nolan is a wife, mother, and partner in J.D. Contract Cleaners.  Josie is Dee’s partner in the business.  After a day working cleaning homes and offices, Dee gets to come home to her loving husband and three grown up children.  Dee thought when her children grew up, they would move out of the house.  Unfortunately, all her children are currently living at home.  Rosie is married to Ronan?? But they are experiencing troubles (a lot of fighting) and Rosie moved back home.  Helen is a teacher and still living at home.  Anthony is a musician, cares only about music, and still lives at home.  Dee does the cooking, shopping, cleaning, and laundry.  The children do not pay rent.  Dee comes home after a hard day of working and is greeted with a messy house and people asking what is for dinner.  One day Dee comes home and she can tell something is wrong with her husband, Liam.  Dee finds out that Liam has been laid off.  Liam is an electrician for Mash Macken, a builder.  It is a rough economy and people are not building.  Dee states that the children will have to help.  When Helen, Rosie, and Anthony are told about the situation, they do not believe it is fair that they have to pay to live at home.  Dee does not know what she did wrong when raising her children, but she is going to fix it.

Dee comes up with a plan and slowly executes it.  Full House is an appealing story.  I give Full House 5 out of 5 stars.  Full House was enjoyable to read, interesting, engaging, and a nice moral.  Maeve Binchy did it again!  I will certainly miss her books.

I received a complimentary copy of Full House from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.  The review and opinions expressed are strictly my own.

I am currently reading The Mystic Witch by Mark All.  I just got two books today that I cannot wait to read:  Moon Bayou by J.R. Rain and Night School:  Endgame by C. J. Daugherty.  I will write reviews of them soon!  Have a great evening!  Arrow is on tonight (if I can hear it over my neighbor's music!  A band rehearses across the street every Wednesday).  Take care and Happy Reading!
