Marianne Coltrane is an award winning, investigative journalist. She uses her journalist skills to do good, to campaign for justice and to expose wrong doing wherever and whenever she can.
When Marianne goes through a series of tragic events in her personal life, in a short space of time, she decides to take a break from work and to go to recuperate and reflect to the west of Ireland to the quiet remote Island of Innishmahon.
But the peace and quiet she is looking for in Innishmahon is soon shattered when she has an unpleasant meeting with actor Ryan O’Gorman, having just landed the major role of his career; he too is looking for escape and a quiet break away from journalists. So Ryan is convinced Marianne has followed him to get a story.
Finding Ryan to be both ignorant and arrogant she does not want to have anything to do with him. But when he comes to her rescue and then circumstances keep on throwing this unlikely couple together could life have other plans for Marianne?
This book is not only a romantic love story but it is also full of adventure and packed with drama. Sometimes it can be a little too much when a lot of tragic events happen in one book, but I found the way this book is written it just leaves you wanting to read more, and it makes you really care about the leading character Marianne. It gives good background to the character too. I really liked the wonderful cast of characters of the Island of Innishmahon, which added to the interest of the story. There is never a dull moment in this book making it a lively and action packed read. I am looking forward to reading more books in this series.
