"Zara Keane has used her Irish roots to write a story in contemporary Ireland that is fun, smart, and has the reader so hooked you don't want to put the book down until you've read every last word." -- Madelyn Hill at According to Maddy
"Love and Shenanigans was an absolute gem, the rare novel with a fantastic storyline, brilliant character development, sharp humor and erotic sex, putting it on my VERY short re-read list. I absolutely cannot wait for the next two books in this series!" -- The Romance Reviews (Top Pick)
"I really liked the writing, it was crisp and clean with an easy flow to it. Funny moments alternated with more emotional and romantic ones, making it a joy to read." -- MaggieReadsRom on Goodreads
"This was such a fun read, I enjoyed every minute of it." -- A Crazy Vermonter's Book Reviews
"I rarely find an author who combines all of my favorite things in one book: quirky comedy, fascinating characters, romantic moments, and a delicious setting. Zara Keane's BALLYBEG series brings Irish small town romance to life in all its charming glory. I'm already addicted to this adorable cast of characters." -- Penny Watson, bestselling author of APPLES SHOULD BE RED
From the Author
While my Ballybeg is fictional, its geography is based on the towns ofCobh, Kinsale, and Clonakilty in County Cork. All the other places Isend my characters in this book and the other books in the series arereal--Cork City, Doolin, the Burren, Lisdoonvarna, Blarney, Galway,Dublin, and so on.Ireland and the Irish are steeped in a unique history and culture and Iusethese aspects to flavor my stories.
As a writer, I love playing with popular romance tropes and giving them my own spin. For example, Love and Shenanigans is my Vegas-wedding-with-a-Celtic-twist. Love and Blarney is my marriage-in-trouble story, and Love and Leprechauns is an enemies-to-lovers romance.
