Welcome back to Book Club Thursday! We hope you're having a wonderful Thanksgiving and are happy that you've decided to spend some time with us!
The Cousins O'Dwyer Trilogy, Book #1
With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends. Ireland - County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors' blood and magic have flowed through generations and where her destiny awaits.
Iona arrives in Ireland with nothing but her Nan's directions, an unfailingly optimistic attitude, and an innate talent with horses. Not far from the luxurious castle where she is spending a week, she finds her cousins, Branna and Connor O'Dwyer. And since family is family, they invite her into their home and their lives. When Iona lands a job at the local stables, she meets the owner, Boyle McGrath. Cowboy, pirate, wild tribal horsemen, he's three of her biggest fantasy weaknesses all in one big, bold package.
Iona realizes that here she can make a home for herself and live her life as she wants, even if that means falling head over heels for Boyle. But nothing is as it seems. An ancient evil has wound its way around Iona's family tree and must be defeated. Family and friends will fight with each other and for each other to keep the promise of hope-and love-alive.
I've been a fan of Nora since she was writing categories. I would be hard pressed to find a book of her's that I didn't like. Some more then others, but pretty much I've enjoyed them all and always found them well written. She's a wonderful, talented author that has the ability to take you on a adventure between the pages of her books. I'm so sad that I can't say the same for Dark Witch. I often felt lost while reading it and more then once checked the cover to see what the story was about. It took so long to get to the point. I did enjoy her characters, in fact that was the only thing that reminded me of a Nora book. I would be hard pressed to read another O'Dwyer story. I will try her next series with the hopes that its more like the Nora I love to read. Happy Thanksgiving!
