REVIEW: Smiling Irish by Katy Regnery

REVIEW: Smiling Irish by Katy Regnery

I absolutely loved this story. With a little bit of suspense and a romance that kind of comes out of nowhere Smiling Irish was sweet with just the right amount of angst. Throw in some danger and I'm hooked. Once I picked this up I didn't put it down until it was done. Tierney is every bit the sweet, one would say a bit of a nerd, but she does have a bit of bite to her that I loved. Burr is the complete opposite in every way imaginable, he screams danger. The beginning of this story starts off with some intensity when Burr basically bulldozes his way into her life. As the story unfolds you can start to feel the chemistry between them but there are definitely some obstacles in the way here and that makes for a suspenseful read. My heart literally pounding full of angst at certain moments in this book. Absolutely a fan of this series. And OMG I can't wait for Ian's book.

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 her doorstep in the middle of the night 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.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013. Twenty-five books later, Katy claims authorship of the multititled New York Times and USA Today bestselling Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other standalone novels and novellas. Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, became a New York Times E-book bestseller. In 2016, Katy signed a print-only agreement with Spencer Hill Press. As a result, her Blueberry Lane paperback books will now be distributed to brick-and-mortar bookstores all over the United States. Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.
