To make matters more complicated Angelique is Franco Rossini’s niece. Rossini, with whom Ryan is contracted, is one of the most influential of film producers with connections that are decidedly dodgy. An old friend of Ryan’s, Dermot Finnegan, makes an appearance on the island, ostensibly as captain of the planned Life Boat station. Returning to the island after an absence of many years, Erin Brennan causes a stir amongst the residents. All is not as it seems in this tiny corner of Ireland; there are shocks, sadness and romance in store, not to mention surprises, drama, intrigue and conspiracy.
It was lovely to get reacquainted with the residents, old and new, of Innishmahon, not to mention the island itself, and catch up with the community dynamics. Again, the sense of place is tangible, the descriptions evocative. I like how each character is relevant to the story, and develops as the story progresses. All are well drawn, realistic, colourful and individual. Dialogue and characterisation, as previously, are excellent. There was a scene in the first book which brought tears to my eyes and there’s another in this one. Thankfully it doesn’t end in the same way.
The characters have their imperfections but, in the main, are warm-hearted and engaging. Apart from Marianne and Ryan, I especially like the MacReady sisters. The story unfolds wonderfully, building on the previous book with skilful writing and an absorbing plot with some happy endings, others not so much. A fabulous read and the best part about being late to a series is having the next book ready and waiting when one is finished.
A Change of Heart continues to follow the fortunes and lives of the residents in a small picturesque Irish village. All the old favourites from A Hollow Heart are there, Marianne, Ryan and Miss MacReady to name a few, along with one or two new ones. Dear faithful little Monty is part of the second book too which is delightful as he is such a fun and amusing addition to the human characters.
It is an adventure and a romance all rolled into one so would appeal to readers from both genres. I found myself, as with A Hollow Heart, not able to put this book down as there seemed to be so much going on all the time and I just couldn't find a good place to stop reading!
A Change of Heart is just as visually pleasing as the first book and the new characters jump out of the page at you. I can't tell you why, towards the end of the book, I gasped out loud because it would spoil the story, but believe me, emotions were running high!
The moment you begin reading this book you are surrounded by the people, sights and sounds from within it, leaving your own reality somewhere on the distant horizon. This is the perfect book to curl up with and relax away from the stresses and strains of everyday life.
I can't wait for the next book in the series.
On top of the vital repairs to the only bridge to the island, which was washed away in a storm, there are now plans to have a Life Boat station on the island too. Dermot Finnegan takes the role of Life Boat Captain as a disguise for some undercover police work which he has signed up for.
For a tiny island off of the Irish coast it certainly draws everyone's attention. Superstar actress Angelique de Marcos arrives in a whirl of glamour to challenge Ryan for custody of their son. Erin Brennan is also returning to the island after a long period of absence and she too has her own secret agenda.
Throw in to the mix a Halloween Hooley, robbery, freedom fighters and some brand new relatives, it all has journalist Marianne Coltrane at breaking point, but letting the Emerald Isle work its magic, gives more than one person a second chance.
Romance, Ireland and great characters at their best, I can't wait for the third book in the series.
