Allegra Casey travels from Cape Cod to Sandy Cove in Ireland after she finds a ring in the sand while at the beach. She has three weeks to find out who the ring belonged to. Allegra knew to go to Ireland because of the inscription on the ring. With only so much time before she heads back to America, Allegra starts looking for clues.
The ring's inscription, one that is barely legible, is what led Allegra to Ireland. Two names seem very likely - Davina and Sean. In short order, Allegra is certain that the ring belonged to Davina Courtney, thus her trip to Ireland. Davina has recently passed away, but apparently she still has relatives in Ireland. The fact that the ring was found in America but seems to have originated in Ireland really raises Allegra's curiosity, and she takes on the role of a sleuth.
While in Ireland, Allegra meets Max Courtney-Smythe, the great-nephew of Davina. While they work together trying to locate who Sean might have been, both Allegra and Max find that they are quite drawn to one another and a romance soon begins to bloom. However, they live thousands of miles apart, and with only three weeks for Allegra to spend in Ireland, a happy future between them hardly seems likely.
I enjoyed the gorgeous setting, the drama and the characters, and these include the recurring characters from previous books in this series. Also, there is one individual who might offset Allegra's genuine intent of handing the ring to the proper owner, thus a bit of intrigue is part of this story.
While this book could be read as a standalone novel, if you are a reader that enjoys continuity, do not hesitate to read the three previous books in this lovely series, The Lost Girls of Ireland, The Lost Secret of Ireland and The Lost Promise of Ireland. Each story in this series is truly endearing and these books are sure to leave any reader with a warm feeling.
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
