    • If you’re going to get involved with men in the town of Dromord, they might as well be Mannions – and Sara is involved with them up to her neck.

      She’s married to Daddy Mannion, 20 years her senior and runs the town. But her first love is his estranged son, Doggy Mannion, a recluse living in the woods. Then there’s the younger brother, Martin Mannion, a small-town Lothario and yes, Sara has just got involved with him too. As a result of this tangled web, the Mannion men have been set at each other, their long truce cannot hold, will we get through the next few days without bloodshed?
