...A great read for a pre-St. Patrick's Day feast, plus, a couple of other books by this author!
This pot of gold could hold more than they bargained for...
Grand. Just grand. Clara Donovan's failure to keep her brother from going off the rails - again - is a public spectacle. Including a handsome stranger who puts down his guitar case to help her talk Seamus down from Farthing's tallest bridge.
Everything about Danny Brady reminds Clara how many times she swore she'll never again be that pathetic, weak woman who got taken in by a good-looking man. Especially when, the next day, she walks into a new coffee shop in her little Irish town and discovers Danny's secret.
Danny didn't lie - technically - about his coffee shop chain. He's just tired of women going after him for his wealth. Clara is a graceful, fiercely loyal, non-Irish Irish damsel in distress, a combination that tugs at his heart. A heart that's spent its share of time in pieces.
Danny has never hesitated to go after what he wants, but melting Clara's defenses will take more than hot tea and charm. He'll have to prove he's made of stronger stuff - even when her past threatens to tear her carefully reconstructed world to shreds.
Review by LAWonder10:
This is a very touching story of a man who overcame a devastating childhood and is on his way to becoming a billionaire. It is also story of addiction, prejudging, acceptance, forgiveness, and the wiles of romance.
The story begins with an attempted suicide, then proceeds with a girl untrusting of men. She has made her own mistakes and is determined to not make more. She is a stubborn, extraordinary woman who has a bad habit of jumping to conclusions. It also centers on a man who is confident and self- driven. He is untrusting of close relationships. Little did each expect to be put together through the actions of another.
The characters are portrayed very well, as are the background scenes. It is easy to feel a part of the story. The Title and Cover image are chosen well.
There are some unexpected twists which adds to the story’s appeal.
The performance of narrator, Jodie Kearns, would have been excellent if she had chosen a better place to record. The hollow echo sound, caused by the location she was in, was quite annoying and distracting .
I offer a Four and a Half Stars rating for this audiobook.
This audiobook was gifted me with no pressure, whatsoever, for a positive review. This is my honest review.
