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?

Male narrator isn't good at women's voices! 😥

A Great story line but narrator isn't good at doing all characters especially women's voices!

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.

Wonderful story excellent narration

Claron and Rhea are such a good match. While it takes a lot for them to finally accept their attraction, once they do it is just so right. I loved getting to know the O’Rifcan clan and cannot wait to delve into the rest of the series.

The narrator did an excellent job portraying all the different characters and their unique accents. I enjoyed listening to the book.

Heartwarming

Claron is a heartwarming clean romance. I’m new to the author and thoroughly enjoyed her writing style and her descriptions of the setting are beautifully detailed. Her characters are interesting, realistic, and seem like old friends by the end of the book. I enjoyed the leisurely pace of the storyline and can’t wait to read the next of this series. The narrator has a soothing and gave a fabulous performance. His dialects lended authenticity to each character.

Good Story & Narration

Rhea comes to .ireland for the love of her grandfather and to heal. Finding the O’Rifcan family and them loving her, especially Claron. Heartbreak and trust was needed before true love. Good Irish story, the setting and the people. Enjoyable narration, given audio for my voluntary review and my honest opinion

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.

Nails on a chalk board

I literally could not bear to listen to this narrator try to do an Irish accent, it’s probably the worst I’ve ever heard and could not get passed the first chapter. I will not be getting anymore of this series if it’s the same person narrating!

I enjoyed the narration of Alex Black

Rhea is running from a boyfriend who betrayed her, and Claron, who has also suffered from heartbreak.
The story takes us Ireland and its gorgeous country side.

The O'Rifcan family felt so warm and inviting, that it made me want to visit their B & B.

A wonderful clean romance.

Sweet Romance

This was a good story but I had a hard time staying focused on it. I feel like I got details or inner dialog I didn’t need, I would have liked more interaction between characters. The narration was just ok for me. There were no heated scenes in this book. The characters were great. I enjoyed them being in Ireland. 🎧Audiobook Obsession

Sweetheart romantic

I really liked this book , I’m more of a bit hotter romance fan but I thought I’d give this a try, very glad I did. I love Claron and his whole family! Narration was great for the men but lacked for the female voices. Still did not take from the story .
