A Mystic Cove Novel #1
An oldie from 2014, I was looking for something Irish to read in honor of the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day when I stumbled upon Tricia O’Malley’s Wild Irish Heart. Another “new to me” author was my first experience with O’Malley’s work, and it was a nice light read for a Friday night. I enjoyed the storyline but felt it could’ve been so much more. There was so much here the writer could have expanded upon, but if you are looking for a quick Irish Romance to get you ready for St. Patty’s Day, then look no further. This story is full of beautiful Irish imagery, love, and magic.
The story starts in Boston with Keelin and her mother, a character I don’t understand, but when Keelin receives a book and a cryptic message from her grandmother, she quickly changes her plans and goes off to a small Irish village called Mystic Cove. There she discovers more of her “abilities” and the secrets in the town. There was a lot of rich history and folklore I wished the writer would’ve expanded upon, such as why Keelin and Flynn both dream of the other before they meet. I thought the author did an excellent job combing Irish folklore and Keelin’s abilities into a modern tale. The sexual attraction was quick, but the Cove has some influence there.
“The sea was a tempestuous woman, roughly angry one day, silkily soothing another. No other natural phenomenon reflected their moods as deeply as the sea. It was beauty. It was wrath. It was everything.”― Tricia O’Malley, Wild Irish Heart
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Tricia O’Malley, comes a romance series set on the rocky shores of Ireland. It is time…An ancient book, a power untouched, and a heart unloved lead Keelin O’Brien from her graduate studies in Boston to a small village on the coast of Southern Ireland. Determined to unearth the secrets lying hidden in the enchanted waters of the cove, Keelin has little time for a surly Irishman who infuriates her during the day and haunts her fantasies at night. Inexplicably drawn to the woman who has stepped from his dreams and into his world, Flynn fights a stubborn battle against his increasing attraction for Keelin. Forces unknown have better plans for the two. Only the secrets of the cove can show Keelin who she really is, the beauty of her mysterious power, and a love that will break the bounds of what she knows.
