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…




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
