In order to break a centuries-old spell that keeps him from his true love, Carrick, Prince of Faeries, must help pub-owners Aidan, Darcy and Shawn Gallagher fall in love. In Jewels of the Sun, the first step of Carrick's plan was completed when Aidan married Jude Murray. Now Carrick has turned to Shawn, a handsome daydreamer who spends his days composing music in his head while cooking for the pub. The faerie prince hopes to match Shawn with Brenna O'Toole, a fiery-haired carpenter with a longtime secret crush on Shawn. The problem is that Shawn is perfectly happy as a single man; he informs Carrick that he will have nothing to do with his plan. But, as anyone familiar with Irish lore will tell you, mere mortals don't stand a chance against the whims of the faeries.
Second in the Irish Trilogy featuring the Gallagher Siblings. This one didn't captivate me the way 'Jewels of the Sun' did, but it was a good read nonetheless. I finished it in a few hours time, so it obviously wasn't a bore! Looking forward to reading the final book in this trilogy 'Heart of the Sea' and seeing what happens with the 3rd Gallagher sibling, Darcy.
Pragmatic Brenna O'Toole has been in love with Shawn Gallagher for years. But Shawn is oblivious to Brenna's feelings, spending his days composing music in his head while cooking at his family's pub.
I really liked both of these characters and was rooting for them to get together. Even though Shawn's live and let live attitude would probably drive me nuts, he seems perfect for the very serious Brenna. My rating: 4 Stars.
I liked the book very much. I liked the was Brenna always said what was on her mind. She and Shawn really complimented each other. I'm glade it's part of a series.
#1 in Irish trilogy. Roberts evokes a land filled with magic, music, and myth and captures the secret dreams and enduring passions of 3 extraordinary siblings.
