Publisher's Summary

A strong minded Irishwoman pursuing her dream. A disillusioned businessman ready to retire. Can two determined people separated by years and miles find true love at the end of an Irish rainbow?

Prepare for romance and fun with the third book in the home-flipping series brought to you by USA Today bestselling author Josie Riviera.

Irishwoman Kathleen Kelly wants to renovate her new tea house in America to a sparkling shine, enticing droves of customers to Roses, NC. But the project quickly takes a turn for the worse when her hard work falls flat.

Rob Taylor knows a thing or two about running a business. He’s built Rob’s Marvelous Muffins into a thriving business catering to hundreds of customers.
 

With Rob in Miami and Kathleen in Roses, a May-December romance isn’t a part of Kathleen’s carefully laid-out plans. Besides, they’ve both admitted to each other how unlucky they are in love. Better to leave romance out of the picture and stick to friendship and hard work.

Kathleen has no choice but to face what she is most afraid of...commitment.

And it will take more than hot tea and marvelous muffins to bridge the gap between them.
 

From USA Today bestselling author Josie Riviera comes a heartwarming sweet romance about Irish grit, with a good deal of decorating and old-fashioned renovating thrown in.

And don't miss Josie Riviera's other sweet Irish romance, Oh Danny Boy.

Fun and interesting

1-800-IRELAND is a sweet and clean romance with characters out of the norm. I love that Rob isn’t the typical young, buff, hero. The storyline is interesting and is nicely paced, keeping me engaged. The narrator does a fabulous job and I enjoyed the lilt for the Irish characters.

Wonderful Story & Narration🎧 Sweet & Delightful!

I thoroughly enjoyed this sweet and delightful romance, it is well written with interesting storylines that are captivating from start to end. The characters are likable and easy to relate to, I adored Kathleen, she is strong willed and independent, I admired her courage to up and leave her country and all she knows to follow her dreams of opening a tea house in the US and to do so on her own. Her realtor and friend knows someone who can give advice, Rob Taylor, a successful baker and businessman who owns several Muffin Shops in Florida. He agrees to come visit and see if he could assist Kathleen in any way. The two hit it off right away, he offers some great advice and more. I loved who everything plays out in this book, Josie Riviera fit a lot of story into her novella sized book, the story is well plotted and flows naturally. There is never a dull moment, with plenty of drama, a touch of angst, some great heartfelt moments and the start of a sweet romance. Josie Riviera, thank you for this wonderful story.

Anthea Hallett-Ybarra is a terrific narrator & voice artist. She brings the characters to life giving each their own voice and personality. She does a great job portraying the characters, capturing and projecting their emotions into her performance. She is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for this great listen🎧

Sweet Romance

This is a sweet, clean romance. A true Irish woman, Kathleen, is a determined woman. Rob is 15yrs older but falls for her. Question is does the age difference make a difference in them getting together? And there is an Irish man that tries to swoop in & take over. I love the narrator's use of Irish when she reads Kathleen's words. I received a free copy from the author. This is my voluntary opinion.

A sweet May/December romance

This was a very sweet book! I had a hard time with the narration at first, but it didn’t detract from the storyline. I will say this was the first of the series I have listened to- and I wish I had read or listened to others first. I was a bit lost on some of the characters. I will read the first two then revise my review.
1-800-IRELAND is a book about an Irish woman opening a tea house in a small town in America. Her Realtor has someone she wants to set her up with as soon as she meets her! I must say- after listening to this book I want to live in Roses! What a lovely place.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

Sweet, with a pinch of Irish

I lovee Josies sweet romances and this one was not an exception. It was sweet, clean, emotional and excelently performed. The plot was well done and very realistic and relatable.
Personally, for the first half of the book I loved both characters, but as story progressed my dislike for Kathleen has started and grew till the end of the story. In my opinion she did not deserve Rob or his sweet affection and deviotion.

Sweet romance!

There is nothing better than knowing a listen is going to ease your tension and let you fall in love. Josie Riviera's books do this for me every time. This is the wonderful story of Kathleen, who decides she would like to fulfill her dream of opening a tea house in the United States. It's a big decision moving from Ireland to North Carolina, but with the help of her friend Rob, she is secure in her decision. Rob is a little older than Kathleen, and as a successful entrepreneur is ready to help. But what these two find is far more than business. Both have past hurts, so will their budding relationship flourish? There is a little plot twist in this too, which gives the relationship a little boost! It's sweet, fun, and flirty. I loved that the characters were a little more mature and it wasn't their first go round in life. It gives the story depth and a realistic feel. And as with all of RIviera's books, the food is amazing!

Narration by the talented Anthea Hallett-Ybarra gives us an authentic Irish feeling. Her accent brings this story to life and gives us that lilt of happiness. She quickly can change her voices with ease and has the story flowing. I enjoyed her performance and will definitely be looking out for more of her.
