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.
