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.
Clara is a strong character, but almost to the point where she lets her pride get in the way of her own potential and happiness. Even with her terrible experience with her ex, she allows her brother to treat her just as horrible. Danny is from humble beginnings but almost jaded from his journey to success. He is sweet and very willing to tell it like it is. There was an echo in the audio version.
Very well done story of how addiction affects relationships and lives. I wanted to shake Clara for helping her alcoholic brother again and again. So much so that she risked health and a relationship with Danny but this story is so true and it happens so much. A beautiful story of Love and things that should be the most important to us. I received a complimentary audio and I am voluntarily giving a review.
