The Wild Irish Sea

A windswept tale of love and magic

Take two cups of magical Celtic legends, a half a cup of suspense and danger, a cup of hot romance, add quarter cup of the sixth sense, and a quarter cup of wild Irish landscape and people and you have Loucinda McGary’s latest treat to devour. A tasty treat it is. A wonderful concoction of magic and romantic suspense.

Wild Irish Sea grabs you from the beginning and doesn’t let you go until the finale.

Cindy doesn’t rush the romance, as many do, but does stir in the natural effects of danger and attraction to hold together a good romance. There’s plenty of conflict and distrust to overcome for Kevin and Amber to have their Happy ever after.

Kevin is a man with deep scars from loss; he’s dark, moody, and reclusive. Being a police inspector, he has been trained to see facts not whimsy and certainly not telepathic abilities.

Amber is a ray of sunshine in Kevin’s life. She too has faced scars, but hasn’t let it close her off. She has a deep attachment to her brother, and the mutual ability to hear him and feel him. When she arrives on Kevin’s doorstep, she is exhausted, barely able to put together a coherent sentence. She is a woman of strong inner guards. She has to cope with Kevin’s disbelief, a community hiding the truth of smuggling and willing to sabotage her efforts to find her brother. She also has to deal with the added enhancement Ireland has on her abilities. People can’t really read minds, human or animal, or can they?

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I read many for review, but this was a joy rather than a job. Well paced, has a good strong romance, factual legends to enhance the tight suspense. Well done.
