Wild Irish Heart - 5 Stars
I was complaining the other day to a couple of friends about how everything I’d read lately was just ok, in desperation I turned to my Kindle TBR list and opened my free copy of Wild Irish Heart, bless you Tricia O’Malley, finally something beautifully written and so capitvating I went out and purchased the boxed set as soon as I was done.
A beautiful love story with a wee bit of magic and faith thrown in. I loved the interwoven connections between the generations of women and their ancestors. There was a moment or two, or three when I wanted to grab Flynn by the collar and shake some sense into him, but he came around in the end.
Wild Irish Eyes - 5 Stars
I loved Cait and Shanes story. I can’t imagine how difficult it would be to travel through life hearing the thoughts of those around you, where would you go for silence? Although each book stands alone there is a beautiful weaving of the lives of the decendents of Grace and it was great to spend time with the other ladies.
Again Shane is a little too proud at times and needs to be put in his place, but underneath is a heart of Gold and Cait is just the one to set him straight.
Wild Irish Soul - 5 Stars
My favorite of all the books by far. I loved the progression through this series and each story gets a wee bit more “Irish” as we go along. I fell in love with Aislinn and the beautiful way Ms. O’Malley had of using her words to paint a picture in your mind, I cried and cried again.
MINI SPOILER ALERT
Aislinn says to Baird at one point that she can “look” at a scene and later recreate it through memory but it doesn’t have the same impact as when she sits in nature in paints what she sees. That she paints what she “feels” not just the view. These scenes were so eloquently written that I could also feel that emotion in the scenes she wove with her words.
Again we have a strong female lead character and a hero who’s a little stubborn and needs as swift kick in the seat of his pants, definetly a familiar pattern in each story, however the male characters are still likeable, if a little frustrating at times.
Wild Irish Rebel - 5 Stars
Morgan has had a very difficult life, it’s beautiful to watch her pulled out of her shell by her “family” of Grace sisters. Patrick is pretty open to the gifts that the women have after having worked for Cait and growing up in the Cove. Still he is put to the test and even he has some growing up and learning to do.
Again I cried and cried again, I was pulled into the story and could feel the pain and isolation that Morgan had grown up with and how difficult it was for her to accept the help and friendship of others. My heart ached for her as she re-lived the terrible things that had happened to her as a child. In the end she was forced to make a life changing decision to save someone she loved, the consequences could take away all that she had finally found, a home, love and friends.
By the end of the book I couldn’t wait for more and went out and bought the rest of the series.
