Meet Julie Quinn, Madison Ave. climber and soon to be Mrs. Bradley Scholer, the drop-dead genius behind those daring Voguespreads. Like her bestie, Kate, Julie is the quintessential New Yorker: bright, bold, and hell bent on the future, and now, on the eve of her 30th birthday, she's this close to being home in every sense of the word. Her parents, god rest them, would be proud. But life never plays straight.
Just as Julie's about to cash in on her dreams, she looses everything--her career, her fiancé, even her faith in the future. Hope finds its way to her in the folds of a letter from Ireland. Julie's grandmother--a woman she's never met--has named her in her will. She must travel to the Aran Islands to uncover the future that lies in her family's past. In this comic romance, Julie rediscovers what it means to say "I love you." A guest in her estranged (and embittered) aunt's home, she finds herself embroiled in island drama and a creeping affection for the resident heart-throb, the scruffy country vet Michael Reilly. Torn between her old life in New York and the pull of her ancestral home, Julie must ask herself What if home is a place I've never been?
This book was sweet, a bit too sweet for me. The first half of the book has the main character’s whole world falling apart, all of it happening on one day…haven’t read that one before.
She then spends a little time on an Irish island where all the people are either insulting her or saying things to her that she doesn’t understand. But surprisingly she falls in love with everybody and saves the Island from ruin.
Her love interest knows her for about five minutes, then declares his love, they kiss, then….fade to black.
My biggest problem with this story is that the first half of it was inner dialogue which is not something I like.
This book is perfect for a Grandma who likes good, wholesome, clean romance and no fecking (I’m not swearing Mum, honest) to be seen. It just didn’t work for me, but it may be perfect for you.
