Publisher's Summary

This pot of gold could hold more than they bargained for...

Grand. Just grand. Clara Donovan's failure to keep her brother from going off the rails - again - is a public spectacle. Including a handsome stranger who puts down his guitar case to help her talk Seamus down from Farthing's tallest bridge. 

Everything about Danny Brady reminds Clara how many times she swore she'll never again be that pathetic, weak woman who got taken in by a good-looking man. Especially when, the next day, she walks into a new coffee shop in her little Irish town and discovers Danny's secret.

Danny didn't lie - technically - about his coffee shop chain. He's just tired of women going after him for his wealth. Clara is a graceful, fiercely loyal, non-Irish Irish damsel in distress, a combination that tugs at his heart. A heart that's spent its share of time in pieces.

Danny has never hesitated to go after what he wants, but melting Clara's defenses will take more than hot tea and charm. He'll have to prove he's made of stronger stuff - even when her past threatens to tear her carefully reconstructed world to shreds.

Love this story.

I really enjoyed the audible version of this story which I loved when I read it.
Josie Rivera writes amazing stories with a lot of substance and well thought out characters as well as every scene.
Her narrator for this audible book was amazing with her Irish accent.
I found myself listening to the whole story all at one time just like when I read it all in one sitting.
It's that good.
There is definitely potential for more stories to make this a series. I hope that happens.
I highly recommend you get this audible and the book to read.

Great Read

Oh Danny Boy was a great read by Josie Riviera. Clara Donovan has done everything she can to keep her brother from going off the rails again. Unfortunately her failure becomes a public spectacle. During all this, a handsome stranger puts down his guitar case to help her talk her brother down from the bridge. Danny Brady reminds Clara about how she swore she won't be a pathetic or weak woman again. The next day, she walks into a new coffee shop and discovers Danny's secret, he owns the coffee shop. It may take all Danny has to melt Clara's defenses. I really enjoyed reading this book and can't wait to read more by the author.

Oh Danny Boy

I think the story can resonate with a lot of people since a lot of the basic circumstances are some of the things most common for a lot of people. Perhaps not entirely the same, of course, but the desperation to help family and whatnots. Having the ebook first and reading it before listening actually gave me more appreciation to the story. I loved reading the story and was pleasantly delighted on how it came more into life with the audiobook.

Enchanting!

This is slightly difficult for me to review, only because the character of Danny disappoints me through much of the book. Je does redeem himself, but not until after he has done a lot of damage. Clara is trying to talk her brother Seamus, off the bridge and back to safety. He lost his wife and has given himself over to drugs and alcohol to numb the pain. Danny sees Clara as she tries everything possible to save him and is immediately taken with her strength and love. It takes everything she has to keep an eye on Seamus and to make sure he's not gambling, drinking or getting into trouble. Danny is a billionaire and nothing like the young man who grew up with his demons. He owns a string of high-end coffee shops throughout the world and has plans to take his company to the United States. As Danny and Clara become close, there's a cloud hanging over their romance. Danny's computer is hacked, money is stolen and he reacts terribly. First of all, he blames Seamus for taking the money to support his habits and, because she has made so many excuses for Seamus's behavior, he turns on Clara! His treatment of her is unforgivable, accusing her of stealing the money, and I was hoping he'd have to grovel much more than he did to win Clara back; however, he did make the grand gesture and it made for a wonderful ending. 
Jodie Kearns does a wonderful job with the narration and the only thing that wasn't exceptional was the tinny sound throughout the book. I can highly recommend this book and audiobook!

I really enjoyed listening to this story. It had all the feels: friendship, love, regrets, divorce, adoption and family. Sweet, clean romance. Josie Riviera knocked another one out of the park. Jodie Kearns does a fabulous job narrating & bringing the characters to life.

Irish Inspiration

I was given a free copy of this Audiobook In exchange for an honest review. Clara has her hands full with her family problems, some very serious, and she has to work very hard to make ends meet. Danny is very successful, but has a very serious family situation too. When they meet under stressful circumstances will they be in each other's future? Will they be able to mend their past problems as well as their current ones for a wonderful future that includes forgiveness? I loved the Irish and coffee shop setting. The subject of addiction and it's consequences is a very timely one that touches almost every family and is dealt with in this book in a realistic manor. Definitely recommend.

Over the Rainbow

This book was magical and the narrator was wonderful. You actually felt like you were in the small Irish town of Farthing. Clara Donovan has had enough trouble in her life, because of men and here she was again. Her brother was standing on the highest bridge, drunk and ready to jump. A stranger, Danny Brady comes to their aid and between the two of them, get Seamus down. His business card is given to Clara in case she needs anything else. What he neglected to tell Clara is the card is from his chain of coffee shops. She finds out by accident when her and her sister go there. She is tired of lies, but agrees to hear him out. A friendship is started, but will be tested. Follow their journey for that pot of gold.

A poignant story of an Irish “ lad and an almost Irish lass”

This is a very touching story of a man who overcame a devastating childhood and is on his way to becoming a billionaire. It is also story of addiction, prejudging, acceptance, forgiveness, and the wiles of romance.
The story begins with an attempted suicide, then proceeds with a girl untrusting of men. She has made her own mistakes and is determined to not make more. She is a stubborn, extraordinary woman who has a bad habit of jumping to conclusions. It also centers on a man who is confident and self- driven. He is untrusting of close relationships. Little did each expect to be put together through the actions of another.
The characters are portrayed very well, as are the background scenes. It is easy to feel a part of the story. The Title and Cover image are chosen well.
There are some unexpected twists which adds to the story’s appeal.
The performance of narrator, Jodie Kearns, would have been excellent if she had chosen a better place to record. The hollow echo sound, caused by the location she was in, was quite annoying and distracting .

If you love Ireland...

What a fun rags to riches story. The tale of not only surviving hardships but becoming strong because of them. Love and loyalty as well as learning to trust again after falling from a manipulative loveless relationship. Throw in Irish terms and endearments and you have a perfectly lovely story to get lost in.
The reader did a good job with the slangs and terms as well as keeping you in an Irish mindset without going so far as to make the the story hard to listen to with a heavy brogue.
