This is a lovely romance where two people who have lived through trauma learn to live for themselves again. It takes Maggie a while longer to recognize that she still carries scars from her husband's death, but Colin is patient, a lovely man, and waits (and hopes) for her to recognize that running can also be running away.
I didn't realize this is the fourth book in the series, but I didn't need the others as this stands alone. It's a fairly quick read and very satisfying.
“I’m definitely lusty for hot, slightly older Irishmen. Especially the surly, quiet ones with magic fingers.”
Recently divorced and settling into life as a single dad to three teenagers on the verge of adulthood who no longer need him quite so much, Colin is coming to terms with how his life has changed but, rather than embracing it, he sees himself as boring and over the hill. Until he meets American travel writer, Maggie Spencer who reignites the spark in him he thought had fizzled out long ago.
“Whenever I’m with you, I don’t feel old. I don’t feel weary, or done. I feel alive.”
Jennifer Gracen has taken pretty much all I love to find in characters, woven them together and created two people who compliment each other in the best of ways. Despite harbouring her own pain, Maggie is bouncy and full of life, always planning her next adventure, whilst Colin is quieter, more contemplative and to a degree is settling: Dublin is his home, his kids are his heart, and whilst his earlier life decisions were understandable, he deserved more than a loveless marriage—he deserves love and laughter with a woman who appreciates him for the wonderful man he is.
“You brought me back to life again.”
As the story unfolds Maggie and Colin unleash the passion in one another in every sense of the word and although I found them a little too agreeable and polite at times, they were strong couple who truly deserve a HEA. And I can’t not mention Colin’s daughter, Roisin—I loved her honest wise words and complete support for her dad. If you’re looking for heartfelt, engaging and sexy romance with just the right sprinkling of angst and which takes you on beautiful journey around the Emerald Isle into Europe and the US, then you won’t regret grabbing this.
Maggie is a traveler, a nomad, a wanderer. She doesn't really have a home, she doesn't have roots. She thinks it's because she's a free spirit, but it's really because she's running from the pain of her husband's tragic death, even years after. When she meets Colin in Dublin, where she's set to write another of her travel articles, the last thing she expects is to meet the man who will make her feel again. The last thing Colin expects is to meet a spunky American woman who will make HIM feel, too, after having finally shed the marriage he shackled himself to for so many years.
His teen children have urged him to start over, to make a new life for himself, but he just can't, or more accurately, hasn't. But, when he meets Maggie and forms first a friendship with her, then something more, he finally realizes that he is capable of moving on. But, how can it be that he finally meets a breath of fresh air, and it's a woman who will be gone shortly? A woman who rarely stays in the same place for long? A woman who's still running after all these years.
I love that Love in Dublin isn't a gorgeous fairytale. No, Colin and Maggie have a realistic relationship with realistic problems and realistic personalities who don't all the sudden tie up all their problems with a nice, shiny bow. No, they accept each other and their new relationship for what it is, for what they each are. Of course, there's an HEA, but it's a hard won HEA and even then it's not one of those sappy, unrealistic ones. No, it's as realistic as it is sweet and it's in the same tone as the rest of Colin and Maggie's relationship - realistic, heartfelt and really beautiful. If Love in Dublin is what this series is like then I am all set on reading the whole series now because it's made me a true fan of Colin and Maggie and Colin's whole clan.
