    Couldn't put it down

    The book was not what I expected but it was a fun read and a look at the Irish Fair Folk legends. Once into it I couldn't put it down.

    Definitely worthwhile!

    Beautifully and charmingly writen, well paced, and never dull. Just enough supernatural for a fantasy fan, but certainly not in an esoteric manner that detracts from a sweet love story.

    Too Fae

    Started out interesting and then turned Fae - not my cup of tea. Should have been classified as fantasy, not romance

    not what I expected

    I enjoyed this story, though not what I expected or ever read, but after reading it, I also enjoyed reading the follow up book, Snow comes to Hawks Folly.

    Nice, light romance

    Charming, clean and well-written story of the Irish Fair Folk in the US.
