This story features the second Gallagher, Shawn, who is a musician, composer, cook, and dreamer and Brenna O'Toole. Shawn moved into Faery Cottage,with it's resident ghost, when Jude moved into the main Gallagher residence. Brenna O'Toole is the family friend and has grown up with the Gallaghers. She has always harbored a love for Shawn, and decides to do something about it in her usual pushy way. Their relationship changes drastically, and Carrick, Prince of the Faeries, is actively involved in getting them to resolve their differences into love. Brenna, of course, pushes Shawn too far, but he finally reveals some backbone and everything is worked out at the end.
This is a wonderful, warm and sometimes funny story, with the beauty of Ireland and the Irish lovingly portrayed. I personally liked Jewels of the Sun a little more than this one, as Brenna's character rubbed me wrong, overall the characters were pure Nora Roberts magic.
Well worth the wait! I hope Heart of the Sea comes out soon.
Here, Shawn Gallagher, the cook for the Gallagher pub, writes songs and idly lives with little thought to the future, or to his lifelong friend Brenna.
Brenna, however, has been giving thought to Shawn for a long time. In fact, she wants more then the friendship they've had all along and lets him know it, much to Shawn's shock.
Carrick, Prince of the Faeries, encourages Shawn in hopes that this romance will make it for the 2 out of 3 that he needs in order to get his own happy ending.
We get to revisit Aidan and Jude from Jewels of the Sun, and Shawn's sister Darcy, who is scheduled for her own romance in Heart of the Sea, the last Gallagher book.
I absolutely loved this book, reading a "sibling" book by Nora is just about the most fun there is. Her characters are well drawn, her heroines strong, her heroes nurturing. She's done it again!
In this tale, we get Shawn Gallagher's story. Shawn, the 2nd Gallagher son, is a musician and a dreamer by nature, and a cook in the family's pub by profession. Perfectly content with his life as it is, Shawn has no plans to make any major changes -- which includes any long-lasting romantic entanglements or making a career off his brilliant music.
Mary Brenna O'Toole has been Shawn's sister Darcy's best friend since childhood, and they've seen each other almost every day as far back as either can remember. Brenna's feelings for Shawn have been leaning toward the romantic for some time now, and as Brenna is a "doer" and not a dreamer, she decides to act upon them.
"Tears of the Moon" is a wonderful, romantic tale of the changes that inevitably take place when lifelong friends become lovers. There are conflicts of heart and mind, fear of losing the comfortable, easy relationship already in place, and yet great anticipation that things could be even better. It's also about accepting love that's offered, flaws and all. Shawn and Brenna take their sweet time accepting each other, which makes the book a deliciously fast read as you race through to get to the point where they DO accept each other.
Last but not least, the other star of this book is Ireland itself, and as I've said in previous reviews, Ms. Roberts ought to receive kickbacks from the Irish tourism board. I certainly can't wait to travel there and go hunting off the beaten path for a charming village like Ardmore, where the cliffs meet the sea and there's always a friendly face to greet you in the local pub.
I'm eagerly awaiting Darcy's story in "Heart of the Sea". I expect she'll get her man. :)
