This is the 3rd book of the 'born in' trilogy set in Ireland. It's my favorite of the 3 followed closely by Born in Ice (probably because these are my favorite 2 of the 3 sisters!).Shannon is the stepsister they found out about and she just discovers her 'father' wasn't her 'real' father on her mother's death bed then right after the funeral the private investigator shows up at her door with the news that her'family' is looking for her. So she heads off to Ireland not really wanting to or knowing why but being very independent she has a hard time with the decision to give up her career and stay for someone she loves and who loves her or going back to her career and continuing to climb the ladder. She also struggles with continuing to use her gift for painting/art in the advertising world or the artistic world as well a being scrappy enough to hold her own against her sisters' mother a total you-know-what! tough girl yet soft hearted.

A talented graphic artist, Shanon Bodine's life turned upside down when she traveled to Ireland to meet the family she never knew she had. And amid the lush landscape, she discovered the possibility of a love that was meant to be.

This book is apart of a trilogy. I have not read the other two which are Born in Fire and Born in Ice. But they are on my list as a must to read later on.

This book was so passionate and exciting. A bit of mysticism in this one. I truly enjoyed the ending to this trilogy.

Graphic Artist Shannon Bodine has worked hard to get to the top of the corporate ladder. But her world is shaken when she learns that she was the result of her mother's secret relationship with Thomas Concannon. She also learns that she has two sisters living in Ireland who have been searching for her. Shannon soon travels to County Clare to meet Maggie, Brianna and their families. Getting to know them is a slow and awkward process, but meeting their next door neighbor makes the trip easier. Murphy Muldoon is a hardworking farmer who loves the land. But one look at Shannon and he knows he has met the woman of his dreams.

This is a very satisfying ending to Nora Roberts' Concannon Sisters trilogy. I loved Shannon's relationship with her sisters, especially Maggie. I also enjoyed Murphy's confidence that Shannon was the woman for him. My only problem was the past life story which didn't work for me. My rating: 4.5 Stars.

Nora Roberts writes in a way that makes one feel they know the people she is writing about. You share the feelings of those people. I enjoyed all three of the books in this series. LaVerne

This was my favorite of Nora Roberts series! These stories were highly romantic and beautifully written. I will miss the characters... they almost became like family. 5 stars on all 3.
