Overview

The Blow-In (The Tipperary Series, #1) by Susanne O'Leary

Romance can lurk where you least expect it. Even in the depths of the Irish countryside.

Political reporter Finola McGee is not the romantic type. She leads with her chin, shoots from the hip and takes no prisoners. When living on the edge loses its appeal, she escapes Dublin to run the local newspaper in a small Tipperary town. An easy job, friendly neighbours, lovely countryside and fresh air - what's not to like?

But the rural bliss doesn't last longer than a weekend. Finola soon finds herself mixed up in a hornet's nest of conspiracies. And when Hollywood rides into town, a certain heartthrob adds a further twist to an already complicated romance...

A timely piece that exposes some of today's critical issues, done in a way that jar's the reader with sense and sensibility, and enveloped in a story of hope, compassion and love.

I really enjoyed this book that had a great mystery and twisty romance. Filona is a charming hero who comes across as a real down to earth and gutsy lady with plenty of smarts. The pace is fast and never slows down. While there are some sexy parts they are done well. Can't wait to read the next book in this series.

I really enjoyed the first half of the book, The Blow-In by Susanne O'Leary. Finola McGee is a strong female character who stands for justice and quits her work as a reporter because of all the corruption she had been reporting on. She moves to the country to become the editor of a small town paper. When she tries to find out why the previous editor left in a rush, she is warned that as a blow-in (newcomer)  she should keep her nose to herself. There is potential romance between Finola and two other characters: Colin, the world-famous actor, and Rory, a local farmer. As she tries to sort out her feelings toward each, Finola probes into the reason for the previous editor's departure and finds politics, corruption, and bullying. At that point, the story fizzles. The romantic scenes are bland; Colin's and Rory's character fall flat, the mystery is resolved too simplistically, and the ending feels rushed. I was disappointed. Too bad, it had great promise.

The characters were easy to identify with. I like strong women stories!
