Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. McGary (Jewels of the Madonna) brings elements of the supernatural into this smashing romantic suspense novel. After her mother's death, Rylie Powell travels to Ireland seeking the father who abandoned her. She finds Dermot O'Shea, whose name is on her birth certificate, but he seems too old to be her father. Worse, Rylie feels an instant attraction to Dermot's son, Donovan. When the police charge Dermot with arms dealing and aiding Irish terrorists, Donovan must reluctantly use his wild sight, which enables him to connect with ghosts of the past, to clear his father's name and solve the mysteries of his mother's disappearance and Rylie's parentage. McGary never shortchanges the sizzling romance between Rylie and Donovan as she weaves in ancient legend and recent murders, building to a dramatic, memorable conclusion. (Oct.)

From Booklist

Haunted by visions of Druid priests and Celtic warriors, Donovan O’Shea left home in Northern Ireland and immigrated to America. With his father ill, he returns to help sell the family property and pub, and now, to his dismay, the “sight” has returned. He inherited the talent from his long-lost mother, who told him to keep it a secret, and he has. He is soon involved in the archaeological excavation on his family’s land and meets American Rylie Powell. Her father walked out on the family when she was a toddler, and she now believes that Donovan’s father is also hers. Donovan knows in his heart this cannot be true as the attraction between them is palpable. In between checking out DNA tests and family histories. the two become involved with murders past and present stemming from the Troubles, a quest that requires Donovan’s gift. Northern Ireland’s violent past combined with supernatural elements add an intriguing twist to this modern love story. --Patty Engelmann

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The Wild Sight by Loucinda McGary is a tale consisting of everything you could possibly want from Ireland. A romance, cozy mystery, paranormal all wrapped up into one nice neat package that will entertain you from the first page to the very end. A dapper dashing hero ensnared in intrigue, murder, and hauntings from past and the present must prove himself to all and theirs.

Donovan O'Shea is about as handsome as they come, smart, pleasant and he has the Sight. Plagued from his early years with this gift, his imaginary friends were really true in his eyes. A gift inherited from his Mum, little did he know that it would be the bane of his existence as the years moved on. Donovan is about as Irish as you can get and has a lilting brogue that will caress you like a lover's kiss.

Rylie Powell is a sensually beautiful American in search of her roots of heritage. A woman on a mission, she is bound and determined to find the father she hasn't seen since she was five years old. Rylie has two weeks with little but a birth certificate and a photo to go on but luckily for her she has patience.

Poor Donovan having left Ireland for the States years prior is once again in his homeland and having to face the demons of his past. His da's property is part of an archaeological dig with items being found that date back to the Romans. As Donovan prepares to sell the property that once belonged to his family, an unlikely discovery of a body halts everything. As if that's not bad enough, he is suddenly plagued with a woman who claims to be his half sister. A persistent, luscious American woman that instantly stirs his blood to the boiling point. Talk about Luck of The Irish!!

This story was an amazing journey and adventure to Ireland written by first time author Loucinda McGary that I won't soon forget. Romance, mystery and paranormal genres are used together to create a book of magic and intrigue from beginning to end.

An Irish lad trying to forget his 'gift' and an American girl trying to find her father are brought together in a small town in Ireland. As Rylie trys to locate her father, Donovan must use his clairvoyant ability, called "The Sight", to stir up old family secrets that may have been better off being left buried. The twists and turns of the mystery of their family legacy grows as people start turning up dead. The chemistry between Rylie and Donovan is intense it is hard for them to ignore, but would they have to fight these desires if they find they are related? A climatic ending finds Rylie her answers, but Donovan finds things he wasn't expecting to find.

I truly loved this book!! I wasn't sure what to expect with it being a first time author, but the book swept me away to Ireland and had me at the end of the book WAY too soon! It has the perfect mix of genres that doesn't over do it on too much romance or mystery. The author seemed to have done her research on Irish history and lore to be come up with "The Sight" that Donovan had and how it mixed in with the landscape of the story.

I would recommend this book to my friends to read...you can easily read it within a couple days.

Donovan O'Shea has run from his clairvoyance gift. In his eyes, it's a curse. His father's illness has brought him back to Ireland and smack dab in the middle of an archaeological dig where a body is discovered. To add to matters, an American, Rylie Powell, shows up claiming to be his half-sister. He's positive that they aren't related, but she is equally positive his father is hers.

The part that I had serious trouble with was the early attraction between Rylie and Donovan. They were kissing and making out before the DNA was collected. Sure Donovan was sure they weren't related, but wonder if he was wrong? And Rylie, she was sure he was her half-brother. Ewe! That was something I couldn't get passed. Even though the mystery of Donovan's mother and her death was well played out and the paranormal flavor added spice to the plot, Rylie and Donovan's early attraction tainted the remainder of the story for me.

Rylie Powell travels from the US to Ireland in search of her biological father. The information gathered by a private investigator hired by Rylie indicates that the man she is looking for owns a pub in a small town. When Rylie arrives she finds that the man she believes to be her father is now in a nursing home and the pub is being managed by his son, Donovan O'Shea.

Donovan doesn't for one moment believe that Rylie is his half sister, but he agrees to help her with her search. The two are very attracted to each other and the situation becomes even more complicated when a body is found on some property owned by Donovan's family. Donovan has been blessed/cursed with the "Sight", which is kind of a sixth sense with a time travel element and is drawn into the investigation because of his "gift". As Donovan and Rylie cope with their growing attraction and the question of her paternity, they become embroiled in some dangerous family secrets that threaten to put both of their lives in danger.

I'm on the fence about this one. While I liked the concept, it just didn't make for compelling reading. The story started strong then seemed to lose focus, finally picking up some steam in the last quarter or so. I did think that the author did a great job of describing the setting, making the Irish countryside come alive - very vivid and nicely drawn. Rylie and Donovan were well developed characters but their romance was tainted (for me) by the fact that their attraction started when Rylie firmly believed that they shared the same father. I don't know about anyone else, but I don't care how hot a guy is, if I believed we shared some DNA I'm pretty sure I could keep my libido in check!

Finally, the parts of the story dealing with Donovan's "gift" just felt a little awkward.
