A tender and funny novel with a colorful cast of characters.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Magic is most certainly in the air in County Cork, Ireland, home to Joseph Corrigan and Joseph Feehan, the eccentric creators of the world famous Coolarney Blue Cheese. The beginning of the novel finds the elderly Corrie and Fee steeped in worry about the absence of successors to their traditionally run cheese empire. Fate sends them Corrie's long-lost granddaughter, Abbey, on the run from her philandering, emotionally abusive husband, and Kit Stephens, a former investment guru whose Irish secretary suggested he take a holiday at the cheese farm and dry out from a budding alcohol abuse problem. Although Kit and Abbey literally feel electricity between them when they first meet, their raw emotional wounds leave them reluctant to consider that they might have just found true love. Heather O'Neill's depictions of the wacky characters in this charming debut are all terrific, but her portrayals of Corrie and Fee are truly exceptional. Highly recommended for all collections.-Beth Farrell, Portage Cty. Dist. Lib., OH Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
