Stella Rosencourt is an event planner in Savannah. She is strong, independent, but most of all she's kind and considerate. She works with the wealthy people of Savannah, and even though they can be total dicks to her, she doesn't let it get to her. So when she is tasked to help plan the second St. Patrick's Day party for the mayor's uptight and snooty wife, she does everything that is asked of her. Even if it's all ridiculous. That is until someone shows her what true Irish traditions and St. Patrick's Day are like.
Enter Padraig MacNamara. The foul-mouthed, tatted-up Irishman whom Stella can't stand. And he can't stand her either.
When Stella has an incident on the street and needs the help of the Irish hottie, he calls her names and leaves her to help herself. Instead of brushing it off like she normally does, Stella stands up for herself, and she ends up getting to know the real reason why Padraig can't stand her. As much as she tries to keep hating him, the kindness and consideration she has for others forces her to see him in a different light.
Much like Stella, I hated Padraig at first. He was a straight up dick. His hatred for one of Stella's clients had him thinking she was the same. But when he takes the time to get to know her, he sees who she really is.
Aside from Stella and Padraig's relationship, I loved the secondary characters as well. Kerry, Stella's assistant, is the kind of friend we all want. Luca, the owner of the Jaded Lily tattoo parlor, is sarcastic and funny and a good friend to Padraig. Moira, Padraig's mom, was my favorite. Her love for her son is amazing. She is kind and caring, and she accepts Stella from the moment they meet. And I could hear both her and Padraig's accents in my head and I loved it.
The setting was depicted perfectly. I've never been to Savannah, but I could see every street, shop, or park that is described in my head. Jameson did an incredible job showing us the city, rather than just telling us where Stella lived. From the fountain in Forsyth Park to the alley behind Wet Willies bar, I felt like I was there, experiencing everything alongside Stella and Padraig.
I loved this book so much and I'm sad that it ended so soon. I can't wait to see what happens in the next installment of this series and I really hope it includes Stella and Padraig.
This iss a book with a gorgeous setting, a strong heroine, and an Irish hero. What more could you want?
But to Proper Irish... The main female character, Stella, is a strong, independent woman, who is relatable in so many ways. She stands up for what she believes. She is kind, and considerate, but not willing to let people push her around (at least, not for long). At first, I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about Padraig, because he was kind of an ass, but I quickly grew to love his character too, as the reason for his behavior was revealed. His heritage means so much to him, as does letting the people of Savannah know what a St. Patrick’s Day celebration should really portray. Padraig and Stella work together to do just that (with the help of some important people in their lives and despite some backlash from others). On a side note, I could totally hear Padraig’s Irish accent in my mind, through the authors words, and I totally loved that too!
I enjoyed this quick story as I have everything else from Ms. Jameson. She has a way of telling a story that keeps the reader engaged and looking for more. I also love that the “extras” are so much a part of the story that as a reader, I can’t help but want more of them as well.
The setting of this story is critical to the storyline in a way that few authors do, and even though I’ve never visited Savannah I now feel like I could be a seasoned tourist.
Proper Irish was incredible, a quick but fun read. What I loved most were the characters - from the two main characters to the supporting cast, they were all well developed and had their own quirks. Padraig stole the show for me though. Yeah, he comes off as an arrogant jerk, but once Stella gets to know him, so do the readers. And I'm betting it was impossible for anyone to not swoon and fall into this gorgeous man's arms.
