Carlene Rivers is many things. Dutiful, reliable, kind. Lucky? Not so much. At thirty, shes living a stifling existence in Cleveland, Ohio. Then one day, Carlene buys a raffle ticket. The prize: a pub on the west coast of Ireland. Carlene is stunned when she wins. Everyone else is stunned when she actually goes. As soon as she arrives in Ballybeog, Carlene is smitten not just by the towns beguiling mix of ancient and modern, but by the welcome she receives. In this small town near Galway Bay, strife is no stranger, strangers are family, and no one is ever too busy for a cup of tea or a pint. And though her new job presents challengesfrom a meddling neighbor to the pubs colorful regularsthere are compensations galore. Like the freedom to sing, joke, and tell stories, and in doing so, find her own voice. And in her flirtation with Ronan McBride, the pubs charming, reckless former owner, she just may find the freedom to follow where impulse leads and trust her heartand her luckfor the very first time . . . Guaranteed to become one of the books on your shelf that youll want to read again. The Free Lance-Star A fun, quirky read. Publishers Weekly

A cute diversion. A light contemporary romance, just a bit of mystery. Fun characters, and I kept hearing the dialogue in Irish accents. Definitely makes me want to go to Ireland. Photo is from a brewery in Black Mountain, NC that was within walking distance of our vacation cottage last summer.

An impulse buy of an Kindle deal. I hope the story is as good as the cover is pretty. I‘d like to go there!

I saw a #stpatricksday reading list and the first thing I thought was this book should be on it. It was a fun, quirky, contemporary romance with a hint of a mystery. The dialogue and wit charmed me and reminded me of all the time I spent in Ireland.
