Publisher's Summary

A Montana Sky Series Boxed Set by Debra Holland, New York Times and USA Today Best-Selling Author

In 1895, three sisters leave Ireland for life in Sweetwater Springs, Montana.

Book One: A Valentine's Choice Book Two: An Irish Blessing Book Three: A Rolling Stone

A Valentine's Choice

Bridget O'Donnell left Ireland, dragging along her reluctant twin sister, Alana, to create a better life in the new world. The sisters travel to Sweetwater Springs, Montana, intending to live with their uncle's family. Upon arrival, their plans are derailed by news of their aunt's illness.

James Whitson, a cowboy on the Thompson ranch, is in town to drop off a letter at the train station. When he meets the twins, he's immediately smitten with Bridget. Hearing their dilemma, he offers to drive the sisters to the ranch to stay with their cousin who's married one of the other cowboys.

Also visiting the ranch is horse breeder Patrick Gallagher. Bridget is attracted to Patrick for his dark, handsome looks and magnificent black stallion but is also drawn to down-to-earth James for his kindness and understanding.

Valentine's Day is coming, and soon Bridget will have to choose between her two suitors.

An Irish Blessing

Healer Alana O'Donnell travels to her uncle's home on the prairie outside of Sweetwater Springs to nurse her ailing aunt, leaving her twin, Bridget, behind at the Thompson ranch.

After Bridget rejected his marriage proposal, horse rancher Patrick Gallagher visits Alana, thinking one twin would probably be as good as the other. But Alana's already in love with the man she left behind in Ireland.

An attack by outlaws leads to a second chance at love. But only if they can overcome the hurts of the past and open their hearts again.

A Rolling Stone

Abandoned by the father of her illegitimate baby and pretending to be a widow, Catriona O'Donnell leaves Ireland to find her twin sisters in America. She intends to put her wild past behind her and, once united with her sisters, establish roots and make a home for her unwanted child.

Moss Callahan has a bad case of wanderlust, drifting from job to job on a quest for new horizons and interesting adventures. On the point of moving on from Sweetwater Springs, Montana, he encounters Catriona, who faints into his arms, forcing him to return to the Thompson ranch.

Moss feels responsible for the beautiful widow and her baby, and his attraction to her grows. But his wooing won't be easy, for Catriona is bitter and wants nothing to do with men, especially handsome rascals who won't settle down.

childish read

I felt she was more geared to a childish audience. The story and the narrator, all in all, was not a quality Historical Romance.

Narrator should have had a better Irish accent

The story was great, but throughout all 3 books the narrator's lack of a good Irish accent made me cringe. 3 Irish stories and they don't hire a narrator who can do the accent right?

The pleasure of hearing a book

Debra Holland has written a wonderful trilogy around three sisters who immigrated after tyhe death of their parents. Book one begins with Bridgette and Alana arriving in Sweetwater Springs [in a snowstorm] going to visit with their Uncle Rory. They run into James Whlitson a ranch hand on the Thompson ranch, who has just rode with the children to school, and stops by the train station to pick up the mail for the ranch. when he hers her ulncle's name he tells them that their aunt is sick with influenza and offers to take them to the ranch to visit with their cousin, who has just married another ranch hand. The book follows the romance of Bridgette and James. Book two follows Alana. She has gone to her uncle's house to nurse her aunt. Of course she also meets a wonderful man and we follow her romance. In book three their sister Catriona has followed them to America and when she finds out that her sisters are about to be married she tries to think of a way to stop the weddings. These are good books and I love having them in one bundle so I could listen to them in order and not have to wait months, forgetting some parts.

Great family series

What made the experience of listening to The Irish Sisters Trilogy the most enjoyable?

Their Irish accent. And their history.

Irish sisters come to American for new lives

Sweet stories

I thought the 3 stories were really sweet, although not a lot of drama, but still good stories. The Irish voices were not real good from the performer, but was still able to follow the stories. I enjoyed this trilogy. I think Bridget's story was my favorite of the 3.

I could not even get past the third chapter.

awful awful awful performance! The voices were so terrible I could not even get through three chapters. Very sad that I wasted a credit on this terrible terrible book! This narrator should never ever be allowed to narrate anything! Terrible!

Historical romance 3 in 1

Would you listen to The Irish Sisters Trilogy again? Why?

Yes, I would listen to these stories again. the theee sisters were different and each story was touching.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Irish Sisters Trilogy?

One of the memorable moments for the stories are the talk of indoor plumbing. And while the various children are not key in these stories, a few still make appearances and they always delight me.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Things happen fast in the old west with single women.

The Irish Sisters trilogy by Debra Holland

A Valentine's Choice by Debra Holland
A lovely historical novella. Love at first sight or just practical arrangements in the old west when women were not plentiful? I say love and this author portrays those feelings in the hero and heroine in this story. Instant attraction. So lovely.
I was touched by the valentine creating kitchen scene. Sweet.
The use of “old fashioned” words like copperplate is perfect for the genre.

An Irish Blessing by Debra Holland
What started out as practical in Patrick's eyes, “one twin being as good as another” to marry, soon turns into protectiveness, admiration and then love.
This love story has a lot of depth. Both Patrick and Alana have been rejected in the past. They have to learn how to get past the rejection and live up to their current relationships.
What's especially fun is well-off Patrick doing household work like laundry and washing windows and acknowledging that perhaps women should be able to vote and perhaps even running the government.

A touching and thoughtful historical romance.
Plus indoor plumbing is a huge selling point to Alana. I have to agree.
And weirdly, this is the first time I want to look ahead fifty years or a couple of generations to find out what historical impact this couple had on changing patterns in society.

A Rolling Stone by Debra Holland
Sweet historical romance. This is the third in a trilogy which is also part of the Sweetwater Springs, Mystic Sky series.
The third sister travels to Montana thinking the three will live together and make their own family. Surprised to walk in on the weddings of her two sisters, she must make alternate decisions. And although she has given up in men, she finds Moss Callahan quite charming.

I didn't like Catriona initially. She seemed self centered and vain. At one point she actually thinks to herself that she doesn't want to marry a "poor" cowboy. It actually took the hero Moss to put her behavior in perspective. She was grieving for her mother and felt left out to of the twins close connection. She certainly grew emotionally in the story and the fact that she helps with all the chores redeems her a bit.
In the end it's a sweet romance that leaves you contented with the "happily ever after".
