Sisters of Willow House by Susanne O’Leary @bookouture #bookreview

Happy Sunday all!

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend! It is still pretty hot here but I heard a rumor it’s supposed to cool down next week! Excited to share with you today my review for this delightful story that made me laugh! Thank you Noelle for my invitation to the tour!🌳

My Thoughts

Susanne O’Leary wisked me away to the Irish shore with this heartwarming story. This is the second book in the Sandy Cove series but it can absolutely be read as a standalone. Roisin and her husband have not been getting along. SO when he purchases a camper van it is the final straw and they decide to take a break of sorts. While hubby is off traveling about the country Roisin heads to willow house to help her sister Maeve with the renovations. While in Sandy Cove Roisin becomes friendly with a man named Declan and….

This was an entertaining and engaging story that kept me invested in these sisters lives throughout. I loved both the sisters and I especially love the bond between them. The setting was gorgeous, another place I really want to visit. There were times in this book I was slightly frustrated with Roisin. I was really worried about some of the choices she might make and sometimes she was a tad bit hypocritical. A perfect summer read filled with amazing characters, a lovely setting, and an ending guaranteed to make you smile.

About the Book

A heart-warming novel about the bond between sisters, set along Ireland’s windswept shores, where romance beckons and secrets unfold…

Roisin McKenna and her husband Cian are taking time apart. Unsure of what she wants, Roisin’s prayers are answered when she receives a call from her sister Maeve who is desperate for her help.

Roisin heads to Sandy Cove to help Maeve restore their aunt’s gorgeous tumbledown mansion Willow House and soon all she has time to focus on are its crumbling walls. Despite a shocking announcement from Maeve and hidden secrets in the house’s rafters, Roisin begins to feel a sense of self she’s been missing for years.

The ties that bind Roisin to her husband seem to be unfurling in the Irish wind, when she unexpectedly stumbles into a mysterious man on the beach. Suddenly, she’s swept up in the idea of another life she could lead…

The restoration may have brought the sisters back together, but as a storm rolls over the coast Roisin feels sure she must make a choice. Will her time at Willow House teach her the precious lessons she needs to return home or has the cove called to her in ways she’d never imagined it could?
