Overview

Mick and Kate thought they were falling in love. Kate hadn't been just the girl next door. She'd been Mick's life, and he hers. When an unforeseen force draws them apart they're left with wounds that refuse to heal. Now, ten years on, Mick's father's will should have been straightforward, except his addendum was like ice water in Mick's face. It's essential that Mick and Kate work together to save his family's farm. Mick doesn't count on his new manager being accused of murder, and Kate doesn't expect a dangerously seductive woman from Dublin to claim Mick is the father of her child.

Kate and Mick have loved each other their entire life even during the last 10 years that they have been apart. Their thoughts have often wandered to one another and always with affection and some regret over the love they shared and mysteriously lost. When they are reunited after Mick's father's death the passion and desire that existed in the blush of youth comes roaring back and they are barely able to contain the emotions churning inside. Yet Kate is strong in her conviction that she wants nothing less than love and is rooted in her home town making it clear that she does not see life through the eyes of a love struck child any longer. But the reunion takes a jolt to both Kate and Mick when during the reading of the will Mick discovers that he must keep the family farm or lose it to Kate. All Mick wants is to go back to Dublin and live out his life and not stay on the farm in this blip of a town in Ireland and with his back against the wall what will he do, stay on the farm or go back to the city. Then a backup plan presents itself in the hiring of a manager to run the farm for him so he can return to his life in the big city and coincidence brings such a man into his life. But the man Mick hires only seems stable to him while everyone else fears this man is up to no good and there is something not right about the whole situation. After Mick leaves Kate feels the deep loss of him being gone and tries to move on with her life but still her thoughts always veer back to Mick and the life they could have. Kate also hates the man who is managing the land who she believe is not fulfilling his part of the assigned duties and he is mistreating her beloved dog Molly. She pleads repeatedly with Mick to return home but he baulks until a horrific tragedy happens that shocks Mick and then knows it is time to pack up and head home immediately. Again when Mick and Kate are reunited the sparks start to fly and this time there is nothing that will make them part, or is there? It turns out to be a someone not a something that is trying to stop this bliss they are experiencing and this person has a shocking surprise for both Mick and Kate. Will the torment and torture of this relationship come to a smooth conclusion or is it really over this time and will Kate throw in the towel and say enough already. You need to read the book to find out that answer. Wonderful story with just enough drama to stir the pot, a touch of tortured past to keep you guessing and more than enough relationship drama with Mick and Kate to make the reader keep hoping. They are wonderful characters whose relationship is explained over time which heightens your interest in knowing more about them and why things are they way they are between them and seriously can they overcome these problems. Quite fetching but there is a bit of sadness that will touch your heart so be prepared for that! Mary Gramlich is The Reading Reviewer located at www.marygramlich.com

This is a great book, especially if you like Ireland. The author obviously knows the country well and has the knack of putting the reader right there with Kate and Mick. Very enjoyable read.
