RIP
Haven't read any of her books myself, but they seem to be quite good from what I've heard.
On with their heads! I'm the clown prince of fools
if you don't get the joke it's your loss
Love and laughter you see are the new currency
'cause greed's coinage is not worth a toss

Exile yourself to the unforgiving continent of Wraeclast!

Not my sort of writer but she was a great ambassador for Ireland and a good journalist .
RIP :(

I have read a few of her books when my sister gave me two..... bit "pulp" but then when you need to rest the brain, after all we cant read classics and all the heavy stuff all the time.. .. not as bad as Mills and Boon but not a bad read when you want some light romance.

RIP Maeve.
