The series follows Aisling, a country gal trying to navigate life in Dublin. Since the release of the first instalment, the books have become the bestselling fiction titles published in Ireland this century.
Authors Emer and Sarah said, "Who knew Aisling had this much go in her?! We are so thrilled the people of Ireland and beyond have taken her into their hearts.
"We have such great plans for her (and the rest of the gang), so to be able to dedicate two more books to their stories is a dream come true".
In the new book, Aisling is set to turn 30 and has a thriving business with her café BallyGoBrunch. Aisling is then faced with some difficult choices when a mysterious American visitor, the return of her brother Paul, and her ex-boyfriend John are thrown into the mix.
Senior commissioning editor at Gill Books Conor Nagle said, "No other books have so genuinely captured the modern Irish woman – warm and funny, hardworking and sincere, and firmly rooted in her community, family and friends."
"Once, Twice, Three Times an Aisling promises more of what we have all come to love about the life of Ireland’s No 1 Aisling, and we are thrilled that Aisling’s story is set to continue in books four and five."
The third instalment of the series will be released on September 12.
