My Rating: 4 Stars
Tara O'Rourke is visiting Sandy Cove from New York City to write an article and take phots of the hidden gem there in Ireland. Wild Rose Bay is a beautiful, nearly hidden location with a lot to offer. An extra bonus is that Tara is staying with her twin Kate, which gives the sisters extra bonding time.
Kate is not too keen on the exposure that Tara's article could create, as it could bring in too many tourists and upset the gentle beauty that the little village offers. Tara soon discovers an even deeper hidden gem that lends itself to the twins family background. Meanwhile, she meets Kate's friend, Mick O'Dwyer. Despite Kate and Mick's concern about Tara's intentions, she soon embarks on an adventure that will affect her life in ways she could not have expected.
An old farmhouse, one is great need of repair, soon becomes a big distraction in Tara's plans, but at the same time brings her closer to Mick, and ultimately Kate. There is one other player in this unfolding drama, and Tara's very future soon becomes tied up with her past.
What a lovely story that brings family history with the beauty that surrounds Tara and the others. I loved reading this gentle telling in this effective series by Susanne O'Leary. While this book certainly could do well as a standalone, the stories are loosely interconnected, which brings great continuity to this gorgeous series. Both the characters and the backdrop of Wild Rose Bay and Sandy Cove are quite lovely. I loved Tara and what she brought to this already enjoyable series. I do look forward to any additional stories set in this beautiful locale.
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
