From the New York Times bestselling author of The Blueberry Lane series comes a new trio of romances featuring the Haven triplets!
"Burr indeed. One long brrr down my spine happened while reading Katy Regnery's latest installment of her series." --Melanie Moreland, New York Times bestselling author
Tierney Haven and Burr O'Leary come from completely different worlds…
…but there's a reason they say "opposites attract."
Bookish Tierney Haven has always preferred places to people, and she especially loves the peace and quiet of Moonstone Manor, an estate museum located in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, where she is head docent, chief historian and live-in caretaker. The very last thing she expects to find on the doorstep at midnight is bruised and bloodied stranger, Burr O'Leary, in desperate need of her help.
Against her better judgement and at the risk of her brothers' wrath, Tierney offers Burr sanctuary at Moonstone Manor, and nurses him back to health, surprised to discover that the dashing, enigmatic stranger loves the history and peace of Moonstone as much as she. But Burr has a dark history, and those who hurt him will stop at nothing to eliminate him...placing Tierney in grave danger until he is well enough to find them first.

5 Star Review Smiling Irish (The Summerhaven Trio #2) by Katy Regnery This is Tierney Haven and Burr Brian O’Leary’s story and I now have a new book boyfriend. Burr Brian O’Leary (just his name gives me tingles) is an alpha man through and through and oh how I want a Burr in my life. This was one of those books that grabbed me from the start and never let me go; what a terrific read Smiling Irish was. Tierney, the only girl in the Summerhaven triplets is a woman who prefers to remain in the background unlike her brothers. When Burr pounds on her door in the middle of the night, injured and delirious, she knows that he is in trouble and despite her misgivings immediately dives in to help. . What Tierney does not realise is that his appearance will change her life forever. I fell hard and fast for Burr O’Leary, there was just something about him that ticked all the boxes for me and then some. The chemistry between Tierney and Burr was smoking and the build up and danger had me on the edge of my seat. As I have come to expect from a book by Katy Regnery, the writing was outstanding, the camaraderie and relationships that Tierney has with her family was realistic and heart warming. Smiling Irish was a beautifully written, romantic story and all in all this made for a great read that I highly recommend; bring on the final book in The Summerhaven Trio.
Tierney has been a recluse pretty much her whole life. Other than her family she lives life alone. When an injured stranger forces himself into her home things quickly begin to change. Burr is in hiding from a Boston gang that he’s been gathering information on as a undercover cop. Suddenly his cover is blown and everyone around him is in danger as they hunt him down. Realizing that Tierney opened a door for them to find her he rushes to protect her with all that he has. I love a protective alpha hero and a sweet, sassy, innocent heroine. This couple had so much working against them and yet through it all their relationship blossomed. This had so much heart to it with deep emotions and sincere struggles that were not contrived. The angst level ratchets up pretty high the last part of the book but not due to conflict between the couple but because of outside forces. It just about broke my heart in two to watch them battle for their happy ever after. I enjoyed this one even more than book one! It felt a bit longer but was still a smooth solid read. The chemistry between the hero and heroine wasn’t forced and it steadily grew. The heat level is low and there’s pretty much no real sexual contact until the last 20% of the story. The main secondary characters did not play much of a role but the ending did set us up for the next book.
5 Stars! Katy Regnery never ceases to amaze me. Everytime I pick up one of her books I love it. There is no exception here. Smiling Irish was a near perfect read! A story of opposites attract, family, bravery and love, I was captivated from the very first page! Tierney blossomed because of Burr. Burr discovered what he was missing. There was danger and romance and love. I couldn't read fast enough! Plus, we get to see Rory and Ian again, as well as, Brittany. Smiling Irish is sexy, sweet perfection!
I received a free copy through the author in exchange for an honest and unbiased review/opinion. 3.5 stars — This one started off really strong, I was loving how Tierney and Burr met and how their relationship developed. But somewhere along the way, my mood changed and it became harder to concentrate on this book. I’m not convinced it was the book in this case, more like I was just too distracted. It had all the makings of another hit by Ms. Regnery for me, so I guess I’ll have to reread it later to see how I really feel. I had a hard time turning off my brain and just getting into the flow of this one… I kept noticing tiny little continuity errors, or I kept wondering about the STUPIDEST stuff, like what clothes was Burr wearing while he stayed with Tierney? How did he pay for things? Where did he live while undercover? Why didn’t Tierney’s brothers freak out when her phone was broken? What happened with the Vet? See? Seriously stupid stuff. I feel like this always happens to me, where I start a book one day and everything is AWESOME, and then I go to bed, and I wake up as Mr. Hyde, and everything is different. NOTHING CHANGED! GAH! I HATE IT! And this has stopped being a review and more just a rant at my brain. ANYWAYS. Tierney was a very interesting character. I really liked her, but I didn’t love her as I was expecting. She had all the makings of a heroine that I would completely fall for: quiet, introverted, a bit of a loner, but sassy. So I’m not sure what happened. I think sometimes her emotions caught me off guard or something…like something didn’t quite fit. But I can’t pinpoint it, so it could just be my mood. But OMG, I loved how sassy she was! Her little barbs here and there made me grin, I cheered during the spatula scene and with Burr’s Dad! I loved that she was this mix of withdrawn but when pushed, she was strong. I almost wanted a bit more with her brothers, b/c I really loved their interactions in the first book, but we did still get some. Burr was a bit of a contradiction for me. I felt like he started off one way and kind of morphed into something else. But I don’t think that actually happened, I think he was just adjusting to being able to be himself again, you know? Not having to be on guard all the time. He ended up being pretty sensitive, and sweet, and I felt for what he was going through as his life went into an upheaval. It was actually kind of an interesting storyline, and I loved what Ms. Regnery did with it (although I seriously have so many questions). I LOVED the sweet romance and connection between Tierney and Burr, and I really felt their feelings and butterflies. But for some reason I wasn’t all in on the steamy chemistry…don’t know why, it just didn’t hit me in the tummy as I was expecting. And I will admit that for some reason their boneheadedness at the end bothered me more than usual. I couldn’t believe how long it took them to figure shiznit out, and how someone else basically had to do it for them. It’s a typical romance storyline, but for some reason it irked me this time. See? Now that looks negative. But it wasn’t! There were so many adorable interactions, and interesting plot elements… I just had a hard time personally, but the things I loved I really loved, you know? I will say I am super excited to read Ian’s story…I have some theories there, but not sure how those will play out.
You know how there are those stories that you read and you never want them to end? The ones you cannot wait to find out how it ends while simultaneously never wanting it to. As you watch the page numbers quickly pass by you start to panic a little because you know this beautiful and heartwarming love story is soon going to be over. Well, Smiling Irish is undeniably one of those books. From the moment Tierney and Burr meet on that dark, stormy night, they grasped ahold of my heart, leaving me in exactly that predicament. Though their meeting wasn’t typical, the soul altering connection they shared was penned in such an absolutely magical and breathtakingly beautiful way as only Katy Regnery can do. I’m certain I have written this in prior reviews but this author’s innate ability to outdo herself novel after novel is nothing less that astonishing. The wonderful characters she creates and the stories of romance she gives us always leave me emotional and my heart full of contentment, happiness and love upon turning of the final page. I am completely in love with Tierney and Burr as well as all of the amazing characters throughout this series. Story after story Ms. Regnery never fails to reach the depths of my soul completely filling it with heartwarming romance, passion and love.
Once again Katy Regnery excites and delights me with her brand-new world of the Haven Triplets. Readers are served up a huge helping of small-town romance at its very best. Ms. Regnery is my 'go-to' when I am looking for that perfect HEA to get lost in for a few hours to escape. Oh my did I get served... And lemme tell you, we all want a little Burr in our lives. Katy's male characters are always swoon worthy. But add in a huge dash of overprotectiveness mixed in with male vulnerability and I am SOLD ! We meet Tierney in Fighting Irish as the slightly 'nerdish' yet sassy female triplet. I knew she had a fire in her that readers had yet to uncover. Ms. Regnery didn't disappoint. She's reserved but no doormat when holding her own to the big, bad Burr. There is a a bit of mystery on how it will all unfold from the start of a 'dark, stormy night'. Never fear, although bumps on the way, story gets delivered without any unnecessary over the top angst. If you can't tell already, I recommend this story! It's one of those delights that you can count on why we all fall in love with romance. 5 out of 5 stars
Smiling Irish goes in a direction, not many Regnery novels dare to tread. From the promise of romance to the shadows of danger, Tierney and Burr take a detour into darkness, before they find their way back into the light. Tierney finds out how brave she can be, when she risks everything to help a stranger in need. The mystery of Burr takes her on an adventure she never saw coming, but strengthens her in ways she could never have imagined. Suspense, romance and adventure lead to a one of kind thrill ride.
