Several years ago I was at a writing event in Leicester and met the lovely Adrienne Vaughan. She gave me a beautiful paperback of the third part of this series and it has been waiting for me to get to it ever since. Now, because I’m not completely crazy I obviously had to start at the beginning of the series. So here we are with a series of reviews.
I’ll say right from the start that this is a super Irish-American series to disappear into, which is exactly what I’ve done this summer. It’s not a fast paced adventure story but we start with Marianne Coltrane’s life as an award-winning journalist whose love life is far from perfect because even when she gets it right, it goes wrong. No spoilers here.
She escapes to the remote Irish isle of Innishmahon to recover with her gorgeous dog, Monty. Here she starts to find her place in the world with the islanders that surround her and she also meets Ryan O’Gorman, Hollywood superstar actor, who’s also recovering from relationship issues. While neither are looking for anything romantic Innishmahon weaves it’s magic and they can’t help being drawn to each other.
The writing is excellent and if you’re looking for a terrific saga to lose yourself in then I can recommend this one.
