I normally prefer mysteries, but this is a refreshing change of pace. I highly recommend this book for anyone. There is no mystery or deep plot to work through, but there are several conflict resolutions that are brought to a satisfactory conclusion. I doubt that such dramatic character changes could be brought about in so short a period of time, but this is a compelling story that keeps the reader engaged to the end.
From the beginning, you will find yourself among a small tour group of diverse travelers on a tour through the gorgeous Irish country side. The concept provides the background for the reader to become part of the action. The descriptions of each character and their personality was clearly done and their stories intermingle with authenticity. I felt like I was truly along for the ride and could easily picture each traveler and their situation. This is one of the rare books that you keep reading 'just one more page or chapter' even after you've promised yourself you had to stop and get some sleep. I didn't want this tour to end, I wanted it to go on and on. The end came all too soon, however, not because of the length of the book but rather because I just hated for it to end. I highly recommend this book. 5 stars and a hurrah the shout out to the author.
For me this was a change of pace novel. One to cleanse my reading palate. The only thing that bothered me somewhat was the way this Irish writer[?] wrote the dialogue for the Americans. Every now then she would lapse and use phrases that were not American, but the novel was so sweet that I forgot about these lapses. All in all a quaint and cozy novel.
So, did it fulfill my hopes? Maybe, a little. At first I thought the characters a bit too formulae, but as I got into it, I realized that was so true. The passengers were a really mixed bag of personalities; typical of our trips. I enjoyed seeing the interaction of the passengers with each other and Conor. He had the right amount of friendliness and concern, without "playing favorites" or getting too close to any of them. I really did want the book to continue to find out what happened with everyone, since they, obviously, all had a story to continue.
The itinerary itself was not too clear since they seemed to bounce around and not really "flow" from place to place, however it allowed the passengers to have their own stories within the main story.
One thing that I found confusing was the use of Irish names and words, which did add colour, but didn't have adequate pronunciation or definition. Some of the names were spelled in the Irish and then given the pronunciation, but not all. And going from the Irish spelling ie: Siobha'n to the pronunciation "Shove on" wasn't carried through the entire story. That caused me to get hung up on more than one occasion. I was familiar with some of the Irish words only because our tour guide in Ireland, told us what they meant.
Overall, it was a good story with a nice ending and if Conor had another trip in another book, or these characters had more adventures, I'd read it.
