Novels with an Irish setting? Bring it on!
This is the last book in the trilogy and I can say I enjoyed all the books immensely. Book 1 is The Girl in the Castle, Book 2 is The Daughters of Ireland and The Secret of the Irish Castle wraps it all up neatly. Perfect ending if you ask me.
The author does a good job of recapping things from previous books so you’re not lost if you haven’t read the other two books in quite a while. That being said, you need to read these in order for the character development to make sense.
We continue with the story of Kitty Deverill , Bridie Doyle and Jack O’Leary. Lots of scenes with the fun characters Harry Deverill, Boysie and Celia. There are ulterior motives for assisting one another with exposing Bride’s husband the faux Count – Rosetta wants to help her friend while Grace is helping so she can get back in Michael’s good graces and his bed.
There are times it’s a soap opera or Facebook drama but if you are a fan of the series, what a page turner. It’s always nice to be an armchair traveler and visit Ireland.
There were a few food items mentioned but it’s the usual tea, scones, biscuits, cake and fish. For a fancy dinner salmon mousse, roasted duck and pheasant were served.
I received a copy of this lovely book from LibraryThing. All opinions are my own. A+
