The past is never over …
Jack Stewart thought he’d put the past behind him. On the surface, he has everything – success, money, a big house and he is never short of an attractive woman by his side, but a tragic road accident shatters his world.

Raised as an Irish Traveller, Luke Kiernan hasn’t had it easy, and when he wakes in a Dublin hospital to find the man he’s hated since childhood at his bedside, he’s hungry for revenge.

Two very different worlds collide, bringing new dangers, exposing past deceits, and unearthing dark family secrets buried long ago. But from tragedy springs the promise of a fresh start with two women who are intent on helping Jack and Luke mend their lives.

Can new love heal old wounds, or are some scars there for good?

I’ll admit up front that I love stories either set in Ireland or with Irish characters and that was one of the reasons I opted to read and review this book. And I wasn’t disappointed because this was a fun read from beginning to end.

The author(actually there are two of them) did a wonderful job drawing me into the tale and keeping my interest throughout. A couple of times I thought I’d sit down and read for fifteen or twenty minutes and when I looked at the clock almost an hour had passed because I was anxious to know what happened next.

Every single character is well drawn and come across as real people. I especially liked Luke from the minute he was introduced. My heart ached for him at times and I was hoping they’d give him the happiest of endings for all the hardship he’d been through, not only in the story, but in his life leading up to the point where the story begins.

Dialogue was another thing I really enjoyed. It sounded like real people talking and not a word was wasted on anything that wasn’t necessary for you to know. And of course, setting won me over and I felt like I do was in Ireland…and England too.

This is Isabella Connor’s first book and I hope it won’t be the last because I eagerly await the next story.

If you’re looking for a great book to finish out your summer reading, I recommend this one to you.
