Miracles in Wild Rose Bay by Susanne O’Leary / #Review #BooksOnTour @bookouture @susl

Sandy Cove Book 6

Arriving in Sandy Cove to views of the shimmering ocean, Tara O’Rourke is excited to get to work. She’s been sent from New York City to take photos of Ireland for a travel magazine, and she knows the perfect area to visit: the mysterious, picturesque Wild Rose Bay.

Staying in her sister Kate’s sweet little cottage, the long nights and beach strolls inspire Tara. But Kate isn’t pleased with Tara’s assignment: she doesn’t want the untouched beauty of the area spoiled by tourists. And when Tara ignores Kate and heads out on her own, she encounters more opposition from Kate’s handsome friend Mick O’Dwyer.

Despite their differences, Tara soon finds herself captivated by Mick, and as he helps her research the area, they uncover a tumbledown farmhouse that holds a secret about Tara’s family. Soon Tara is forced to make a choice: should she give up her story and the career she’s always wanted, or the man and the country she’s falling in love with?

Review

Time to fly to Ireland and to be welcomed by the people of the lovely Sandy Cove where the author has another cracking story in store for us.

In the previous book we saw Kate arriving and … No, I am not going to tell you what happened in case you did not read that one yet. 😉

This time it’s Tara we are ‘stalking’ and see how she deals with all the ups and downs life throws at her.

The author makes me long to visit this part of Ireland once again with her descriptions of the beautiful country side and the sea views. How does not want to fall asleep while the sea sings you a lullaby? Who does not want to be able to run down a few steps to reach a private beach? Who does not want to find The One? I think a lot of us do and I, for sure, am one of them. 😊

A very enjoyable read, just like the rest of the series. 5 stars

Go raibh maith agat

Silent Ridge by Gregg Olsen / #Review #BooksOnTour @bookouture @Gregg_Olsen

:

Detective Megan Carpenter #3

One bath wall is a mural of a brilliant-yellow sunflower. The theme carries over to the shower curtains, but the yellow vinyl is spattered with red blotches. Propped against the mirror is a South Kitsap High School photo of a teenaged girl.

Detective Megan Carpenter is no stranger to horrifying crime scenes, but when she arrives at the home of a woman whose body has been brutalized, Megan is shocked to discover that she knows the victim. Monique Delmont helped Megan when she was in danger years ago. And the killer has left a disturbing calling card… two laminated photographs of a sixteen-year-old high school girl – Megan.

Someone is taunting her in the worst way possible and Megan is convinced she knows who is responsible. She just has to find him.

With the help of her new partner, Deputy Ronnie Marsh, Megan begins to unravel the clues that will lead them to the killer including links to three female murder cases from nearly twenty years ago – one of which was Monique’s daughter.

But to protect those closest to her, Megan must continue to hide the dark truth of her past, even if that means lying to her team about her connection to Monique.

When two photographs of a teenage Megan are found at her boyfriend’s place in Snow Creek, she knows the killer is circling and ready to strike again.

Can she get to him before he finds her? And will she pay the ultimate price for trying to keep her terrifying past buried?

Review

Detective Megan Carpenter is back with a vengeance. Oh, maybe I should not say this but I love Megan. She lies through her teeth, she is not very good in obeying orders, she is cold blooded, but she has a heart of gold even if she would deny it if you would say it in her face. Her only goal is to protect and bring justice, but in her own way.

It seems though she has found her equal in her partner. She is not as easily deceived as you would think at first sight and maybe that’s just what Megan needs.

I also admire Sheriff Tony for all the trust he puts in his detectives. I really like him too.

To make a long story short, it’s a great series that makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up constantly and I love it.

I can’t wait for the next book. 5 stars

Thank you, Gregg Olsen and Bookouture

Promises at Indigo Bay by Ellyn Oaksmith / #Review #BooksOnTour @bookouture @ellynoaksmith 

Blue Hills #2

Our life together meant more to me than he could possibly imagine. I just wanted another night. I thought I knew what was coming. A proposal. If only it had been that simple.

Things are finally working out for Stella Gallagher. Unlucky in love and faced with limited options in her small town, she was beginning to give up on romance altogether, until mysterious Italian Paolo Gentillo moved to Chelan…

Paolo is smart, kind, gorgeous and, most importantly, they’re completely obsessed with each other: Stella has finally found her match. Everything would be perfect, except there are things she hasn’t told Paolo—she doesn’t know how he’s going to feel about her when he finds out about her past…

So when Paolo proposes, Stella panics: it’s way too soon. She wants to be with him, but suddenly they’re talking about forever. He doesn’t even know the real her, she’s scared to face up to her secret, and she’s never felt so alone. Is the damage from her past going to threaten her chance at a perfect future?

Review

Book 2 of this series and I adored it. I really enjoyed the first one, but this one even entertained me more.

There were still some devastating revelations, but there was a lot of humour too. Some funny little things that made me smirk and some sad ones that broke my heart AND a scene that made my eyes well up and my heart melt. Great ingredients mixed into a wonderful story.

The author has created some characters you want to hug, others you would like to slap.

Deal with the bad times and live your life to the fullest is an important message I will keep in mind.

I loved the views over Lake Chelan and Lake I-am-not-telling, because we are going on a trip.

My advice : sit back and enjoy this fabulous book.  You will not regret it, believe me.

I hope I will meet up with these lovely people again soon. In the meantime, the countdown has started. 5 stars.

Memories of Wild Rose Bay by Susanne O’Leary / #Review #BooksOnTour @bookouture @susl

 

 

Sandy Cove Book 5

When Kate O’Rourke takes up a temporary position as a doctor in Sandy Cove, she hopes spending time in the place where her father was from will help her find herself again. Ever since his passing she has felt lost, but she imagines the calming sound of the sea on the Irish coast will allow her to heal.

Kate immediately feels at home in the old surgery, and as she takes walks beside the camellia bushes along Wild Rose Bay and meets every resident in the tiny village, she feels like this is where she’s meant to be. And when she’s told about local healer Cormac O’Shea, she’s excited to learn even more about the history of the area, and meet the man who every woman in town says is so charming.

But Kate quickly realises that she and Cormac have different ideas about how their patients should be treated. Kate is efficient and well-organised, whilst Cormac is wild and spontaneous, passionate about his ancestors’ reliance on Irish healing. And their differences cause more sparks than Kate is prepared to admit.

Just as Kate and Cormac begin to understand one another, Kate’s old life threatens to call her away from Sandy Cove forever. And she is finally forced to decide what life she wants to lead, and what kind of person she wants to be…

 

 

Review

We are back in Sandy Cove, Kerry. I was lucky enough to be a guest there 4 times before and it’s great to be welcomed back for the 5th time and hopefully many times more.

In this book the people we have got to know in the previous stories are not in the foreground but they have given up their spot to some new faces.

Can healers really heal with their potions and lotions or should we put our trust solely in the hands of ‘normal’ doctors? Can both see eye to eye and join forces or are they too stuck in their own points of view?

They say love can conquer all, but can it work for Kate and Cormac?

This is a great story about how your life can change direction and about being accepted in the heart of a small village.

Once again the author describes the beautiful views and I hope one day I will be able to see them with my own eyes. 5 stars.

Thank you, Susanne O’Leary and Bookouture

Summer at Orchard House by Ellyn Oaksmith / #Review #BooksOnTour @bookouture @ellynoaksmith 

 

 

Blue Hills #1

The Alvarez sisters have grown up and moved away—but now their dad is in crisis, the family business is collapsing and it’s time to go home to Lake Chelan.

Carmen Alvarez is the reliable one. When her vulnerable father’s livelihood is threatened, she’s the person her sisters call. Abandoning her job in Seattle, Carmen races home to the family vineyard her dad built up from nothing to set things straight. But soon she’s fallen back in love with the dusty sage hills, the turquoise blue lake, the fragrant June orchards… Maybe she’s not just home for the summer?

Standing in the way of Carmen’s happiness is one very attractive obstacle: new neighbor Evan Hollister, who’s after her dad’s land. He’s arrogant, entitled and spoiled—everything Carmen hates—and she is all set to have a bit of fun driving him out of town so things can get back to normal. She isn’t ready for their relationship to get complicated…

But Evan is the least of Carmen’s worries. The business is falling apart and it starts to look like Carmen might lose much more than just her pride: employees have quit, the bank keeps calling and everything her father worked so hard for is slipping away. As she is pushed to breaking point, Carmen will learn that her true family are the people who will see her through the worst of times, and that love can be found in the most unlikely of places.

 

 

Review

What a great start to a new series. The author introduces us to the Alvarez sisters who bundle their forces when their legacy is on the brink.

What would you do when a rich man would pay big money to buy your family’s business? Would you sit down and bow or would you fight with everything you have in you even if you are afraid that you will not be able to reach your goal?

What would be more important to you: giving in to the feelings you start having for that man or would the focus remain on the business? Maybe it’s time to figure out a way to have both…

I could feel the warmth on my skin, smell the dusty earth and the sun kissed grapes and wished I had a clear blue lake to dive into too.

A lovely heartwarming summer story on a winery that made me snigger and made me hold my breath. I am very curious to find out what will happen next. 5 stars.

Thank you, Ellyn Oaksmith and Bookouture

Water’s Edge by Gregg Olsen / #Review #BooksOnTour @bookouture @Gregg_Olsen

 

 

Detective Megan Carpenter #2

The young woman’s body is lying with her arms stretched out to each side. Her lips slightly parted. Her face untouched by injury and her hair spread around her head like a fan. A redhead. Just like the others.

When the body of Leann Truitt is found in a secluded cove in Mystery Bay, Detective Megan Carpenter is one of the first on the scene. The victim has tell-tale marks on her wrists, ankles and neck where she has been bound. But that’s not all. Next to Leann’s body lies a puzzling clue – an unusual symbol scratched into a rock. 

With rookie Deputy Ronnie Marsh under her wing and the investigation underway, Megan starts to receive disturbing messages. Someone knows about her traumatic past. They know what she did. 

Determined to stay focussed, Megan soon makes a chilling link between Leann’s brutal killing and the unsolved murder cases of two other women – all redheads with the same marks on their bodies, the same symbol carvings found at the crime scenes, and most shockingly, all had been pregnant. 

The killer stalks his prey, kidnapping and torturing them in a very exact and methodical pattern. And he is not finished yet… 

When the body of another woman is found bearing a striking resemblance to the other victims, Megan must crack the clues fast if she is to catch the twisted soul before they strike again.

Megan might be closing in on the killer, but someone is watching her every move. Can Megan hide the secrets of her past threatening to destroy her future? And can she protect herself and Ronnie before they both find themselves in terrible danger?

 

 

Review

Megan Carpenter is one tough cookie. She is the queen of ruthlessness when it comes to culprits, but she fights with all she has for ‘her’ victims.

Playing by the rules? Well, yes but not very often. She makes her own rules, she twists the truth every once in a while (ahum 😉 ), but she always does it for a good cause : giving the killers she believes they deserve.

I just love the way the author has created her character. She is made out of steel on the outside, but very damaged on the inside and that what has made her who she is today. I just cannot resist opening my heart to her.

The author has a great writing style that makes it impossible to put the book down. He also adds some humour in it. It’s fun to read what Megan says, but also what she thinks at the same time. It made me snigger rather often. 🙂

What more can I say? It’s an great book by a great author. I am looking forward to new adventures and to more details being revealed from the past of the main character. 5 stars

Daughters of Wild Rose Bay by Susanne O’Leary / #Review #BooksOnTour @bookouture @susl

 

 

 

Sandy Cove #4

Jasmine Delon feels completely lost: having just broken up with the man she thought was the love of her life, all she knows is that she can’t face living alone in her empty apartment in Paris.

When she turns up at her mother’s curiosity shop, nestled in Sandy Cove in Ireland, she hopes time with Sally will help heal her broken heart. Walks along the rugged coastline and nights under endless stars immediately make her feel at peace, and then she meets Aiden, a handsome chef in town, and sparks fly between them.

But a lot has changed since Jasmine last saw her mother. Sally is happier than ever with a charming new man in her life and Jasmine’s not sure where she fits in. Then she’s told about the ruins of an old village in a place nearby called Wild Rose Bay. The locals say it holds secrets about her mother’s side of the family…

Is delving into their history the thing that can bring Jasmine and Sally back together or will it drive them further apart? And is Jasmine brave enough to give in to the call of the Irish sea for another chance at love?

 

 

Review

About four months ago I had to leave Sandy Cove with a heavy heart. After having read the stories of Maeve, Roisin, Phil and Cordelia it’s great to be back and be able to curl up with a new book taking place in the cosy and warm seaside village.

When you had your heart broken, you want to leave everything behind for a while and take the time to heal. You want nothing to do with the past and the memories are too painful. You can try to hide but closure is what you need to move forward.

Time to have a bit of fun and maybe a chance to find love again, but are you looking for it with the right person…

The author introduces us to a few new kids on the block, but we reconnect with some of the old gang too. 

Love is all around, just the way Wet Wet Wet sang it so beautifully. Lovely story. I can’t wait to go back again for new adventures. 4 stars.

Thank you, Susanne O’Leary and Bookouture

Snow Creek – Gregg Olsen / #Review #BooksOnTour @bookouture @Gregg_Olsen

 

 

Detective Megan Carpenter #1

Footprints were scattered about like fallen leaves. She looked down into the ravine, and once more her lungs filled with fear. A body, blackened and motionless lay splayed out in the bushes.

Detective Megan Carpenter is no stranger to evil. Escaping the horrors of her old life, she’s vowed never to let anyone hurt her or those she loves ever again. Joining the small police force in Jefferson County’s Port Townsend, Megan is determined to get every victim of a crime the justice they deserve.

So when Ruth Turner walks into the Sheriff’s office claiming her sister Ida Watson has been missing for over a month, Megan’s instincts tell her that she needs to do more than just file a report.

Arriving at a secluded farmhouse in the hills above Snow Creek, she finds Ida’s teenage children alone and frightened.

Then a few days later, close to the Watsons’ home, the blackened body of a woman is discovered in an abandoned pickup truck.

Megan must unravel the disturbing secrets of the isolated Snow Creek community if she is to catch the killer.

But Megan has dark secrets of her own too…

Hidden in the back of her closet is a box of tapes containing every single recording of her therapy sessions with Doctor Albright over thirteen years ago. As Megan begins to play the tapes, she’s taken straight back to her terrifying childhood, back to the time she was a kid called Rylee, fighting to survive.

Can Megan finally confront the past she’s spent years trying to block out and will listening to her own painful story help her solve the complex case she is now entangled in?

 

 

My Review

OMG this book was soooo my cup of tea. The author has filled the story with some serious twisted minds and that’s the way I like them. 🙂

It’s the first book in a new series. This not only means that we have to try and figure out who is the mastermind behind the murders, but we have the pleasure of meeting a new main character we will get to know little by little. 

Megan certainly is a very intriguing person. I am really looking forward to find out what’s in her past and future.

This was quite a complicated case, but  oh so good. Things happen and there does not seem to be any connection, right…?

The short chapters add to the pace of the book and the author slips in a few little quips that put a smile on my face.

Brilliant, just briilliant. 5 stars

Dreams of Willow House – Susanne O’Leary / #Review #BooksOnTour @bookouture @susl

 

 

Sandy Cove Book 3

Cordelia Mirafiore has never truly felt at home in South Florida, so when she’s unexpectedly called to the reading of a long-lost relative’s will in Ireland, she’s hopeful that escaping to Willow House to meet her family might help her to figure out who she really is…

As soon as Cordelia reaches Sandy Cove, the views of the blue ocean and stunning coastline around her provide a sense of calm she has never felt before. She meets her cousins Maeve and Roisin, who welcome her with open arms, finds herself drawn to a handsome man who is also an outsider in town, and feels an instant spark.

But the rest of the McKenna family aren’t so willing to accept Cordelia, or even believe that she’s family. When they learn that Cordelia is to inherit a third of Willow House, she is forced to prove who she is. All she has are old parish records and a battered box of family photographs, but they lead her to secrets she may not want to uncover.

Can Cordelia find the courage to face her family’s past? Can she trust the mysterious man who has swept her off her feet? Or will the lies told for generations force her to leave Sandy Cove forever?

 

 

My review

I cannot believe it’s already part 3! They say that time flies when you are having fun and it’s true. I am most certainly having a lot of fun reading this series.

The author always combines drama and happiness in the most delightful way. You just have to keep on reading and reading and read a bit more. When you have finished it, you wish you already had the next part handy as well.

I have never been in Ireland, but the way this part of the country is described only makes me want to go there even more.

This story is about family, love and unraveling devastating secrets, but will the outcome bring everybody together or create a rift between them? 5 stars.

Thank you, Susanne O’Leary and Bookouture

Sisters of Willow House – Susanne O’Leary / #Review #BooksOnTour @bookouture @susl

 

Sandy Cove #2

Roisin McKenna and her husband Cian are taking time apart. Unsure of what she wants, Roisin’s prayers are answered when she receives a call from her sister Maeve who is desperate for her help.

Roisin heads to Sandy Cove to help Maeve restore their aunt’s gorgeous tumbledown mansion Willow House and soon all she has time to focus on are its crumbling walls. Despite a shocking announcement from Maeve and hidden secrets in the house’s rafters, Roisin begins to feel a sense of self she’s been missing for years.

The ties that bind Roisin to her husband seem to be unfurling in the Irish wind, when she unexpectedly stumbles into a mysterious man on the beach. Suddenly, she’s swept up in the idea of another life she could lead…

The restoration may have brought the sisters back together, but as a storm rolls over the coast Roisin feels sure she must make a choice. Will her time at Willow House teach her the precious lessons she needs to return home or has the cove called to her in ways she’d never imagined it could?

 

 

My review

I thoroughly enjoyed the first book where the author tells Maeve’s story. In this one the focus is on Maeve’s sister Roisin.

Everybody’s life changes through the years. It can be in your professional or private life or in both at the same time. Is it a bad thing? Of course not because finally you can do what you always wanted to but could not find the time for. And now time is on your side and you don’t seem to find your feet.

You do not want to do something your heart is not into just to please someone else and vice versa. Why not do somehing on your own then? Is that a bad thing? Of course not. It gives you the chance to find out what you really want to do next.

There is a saying : When there are no photos, it did not happen, but does is necessarily mean that it happend when there are photos …???

The bottom line is clear : true love conquers all!

The author wrote, once again, a very entertaining story. 5 stars.

Thank you, Susanne O’Leary, Bookouture and Netgalley.

When she is not scaling the mountains of said counties (including MacGillycuddy’s Reeks, featured in Full Irish), or keeping fit in the local gym, she keeps writing, producing a book every six months.
