Publisher's Summary

Tossing her belongings into a suitcase and escaping heartbreak seemed like the best idea for Rhea Conners. She’d simply travel across the ocean to visit her grandfather in Ireland and heal. Then she’d come back. Simple. But what she doesn’t expect is to find solace and healing in the form of the O’Rifcan family and one member in particular: Claron.  

Claron enjoyed his life farming the land his grandparents gifted him. He lived his life quietly and contentedly, until Rhea arrived. He’d steered clear of relationships and entanglements since his last heartbreak, but something about Roland’s granddaughter twists him up inside. Something about Rhea has him rethinking his life of solitude. 

Two hearts. One chance. Can Rhea and Claron overcome past hurt to make a new beginning?

Heartwarming story based in Ireland

This is a beautifully told story about Rhea, who is running from a boyfriend who betrayed her, and Claron, who has also suffered from heartbreak. The romance takes longer to develop than in most books, but I enjoyed the beautifully described setting of Ireland with a wonderful family dynamic. The narrator did a great job with the Irish accent!

An Irish Family Romance

I will not summarize this story because it was already given in the description of this book and I do not want to give any of the plot away. The purpose of this review was to give potential readers information to make an informed decision about reading/listening to this book.

What I enjoyed:

• This story caught my attention immediately.
• The descriptions of locations and emotions were well done, easy to visualize, and to feel. I felt a part of the scenes.
• The O'Rifcan family felt so warm and inviting, that it made me want to visit their B & B.
• This story made me want to take a trip to Ireland.
• The friendship and love that developed between Rhea and Claron developed at a reasonable rate in a believable way.
• The narrator did an excellent job in differentiating the various characters' voices.
• This was a clean story.

I requested a free audiobook from the author. My review was voluntary and my opinions were my own. I will be listening to or reading more books by this author. I will also keep a lookout for books narrated by Alex Black.

A Sweet Romance with a Sweet Ending

A sweet romance based on love and not lust, this story and the narration of it, had me feeling as though I was listening to a Hallmark movie. The author took her time creating memorable characters and the narrator did his part to make sure each and every one of them came alive. If you are currently saddened by Droughtlander, this is certainly the audio book to pick up.

Clean romance located in Ireland

Story: 4.5 stars

A wonderful love story about two people who have experienced the heartbreak of being cheated on and (eventually) find their own strength and then each other.

Narration: 3 stars

I’m torn about Mr. Black’s narration. I like the Irish accent, but have no idea how authentic it sounds, I’ll leave it to other listeners to debate that. But what lost him a star in my rating system was his women’s voices. Both moms sound screechy and all the younger women sound like sultry valley-girls. The cadence with which these younger women deliver their lines feels off. The male voices are excellent and the one female voice I enjoyed was Claron’s granny, so I know he can do lovely female voices. Anyway, he was a solid narrator and I’d be happy to listen to more of his acting.

Clean, cute

This was a really cute story. I loved listening to it. The narrator really bugged me at first when he did the girl voices, but I got used to it. He did a good job with the Irish dialogue (at least I think). All in all I enjoyed listening to it.

Abrupt ending

An interesting story with potential, but the ending was so abrupt, I wondered if the file had not fully downloaded. Narrator did ok, but the accent was more Scots than Irish.
