The Irish Cottage: Finding Elizabeth by Juliet Gauvin Book Summary

A story about losing your way and finding your life. Book 1 of 3.

Elizabeth Lara built a perfect life as San Francisco’s top divorce attorney, but when she loses her great-aunt Mags, the woman who raised her, she boards a plane and leaves it all behind.

The Irish shores welcome her as she learns a shocking truth, kept secret for thirty-five years. Devastated and now alone in the world, Beth tries to find peace in a beautiful cottage by Lough Rhiannon, but peace isn’t what fate had in mind. Almost as soon as she arrives, Beth’s solitary retreat into the magic wilds of Ireland is interrupted by Connor Bannon. A man with light brown hair, ice blue eyes and a secret of his own. He’s gorgeous, grieving, and completely unexpected.

With the help of Mags’ letters, the colorful townspeople of Dingle, and Connor, Elizabeth might just find a way back to the girl she lost long ago and become the woman she always wanted to be.

A Note From Jules:

Be forewarned you might not want to start this book late at night—several readers have reported “gobbling it up” and going on to the next book immediately. This book is literary women’s fiction, it is not a traditional romance, per se.

It’s a trilogy, not a standalone. All three books are vital to the story: The Irish Cottage, The London Flat, and The Paris Apartment. That being said, I’ve found that traditional romance readers are VERY happy at the end of London. So take a ride with me, first to Ireland and then the world.

“If you enjoy Nora Roberts, you’ll like Juliet Gauvin. The Irish Cottage is a fresh take on women’s literary fiction, sometimes light and scrumptious and other times quite profound in its observations on life, love and loss.”

“A book that conveys the true feelings of Ireland when you visit…it’s a bit of a romance, history, travel, and mystery neatly tied into a book well worth reading.”

“It will give you the feels—only the good ones!”

The Irish Cottage: Finding Elizabeth is an international women’s literary fiction romance novel with three books in the novel series. Other themes include: romance literary fiction, women’s sagas, love stories, and second chances at life.

EDITORIAL REVIEWS

"I started this book and couldn't put it down. It brought me to Ireland and I never wanted to leave." -Amazon Reviewer
"There is so much to love in this, the first in the [The Irish Heart] Series...I wanted to look out my cottage window and see a Lough of my own and the pub was just asking me to come visit...This story pulled me in from the very first page and I'd highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys contemporary romance, stories of starting over, or romances set in other countries." -Goodreads

“I laughed, I cried, I hoped & dreamed. The series was beautifully told through poignant letters. A keeper of the heart.” -Amazon Reviewer

"Great book! Elizabeth embodies strength and determination as well as compassion and forgiveness. The Irish Cottage combines the fairytale of Ireland with the real life struggles we all face." -Amazon Reviewer

"I bought the book yesterday and couldn't put it down. Very romantic, very sexy, with a heroine who can save her own bacon...and the wounded, hunky hero--be still my heart." -Goodreads

INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR
Q: How did you come up with The Irish Cottage?
Jules: Well the story came together in pieces. I love Ireland, I've always been attracted to the country, the people, the music, the dancing. I've spent time traveling the country so I knew I wanted to set the book there. And then the character of Elizabeth was based on a lot of the experiences I had when I was in law in San Francisco. When I was immersed in that world--it was a very dark time, and I really did lose my way--like Elizabeth. I even let long-time relationships die because I was in such a dark place, it was difficult to see anything past my own nose. So yeah, I knew I wanted my heroine to be a "recovering attorney" and I knew that I wanted her to have this great love affair in Ireland that would open her up to the truly great possibilities life has to offer.

Q: And what about Connor Bannon? Is he based on anyone?
Jules: Ummm...he might be an amalgamation of several people, but I think I'll refrain from commenting further--have to keep some of it to myself, don't I?

Q: Why did you elect to write literary women's fiction as opposed to traditional contemporary romance?
Jules: I knew I wanted to write in the literary women's fiction space because writing a story where the heroine's evolution is paramount--not just her relationship with Connor--is what really gets me, drives me--I love those types of stories. I like writing herstory--women's lives and journeys are so complex--I wanted to write a series that included a great love story, but didn't sacrifice the heroine's journey in any way. It's about Elizabeth finding her way--we all need to find our way. Sometimes people help with that, but ultimately each of us has to find our own path...and we all need love too.
 

Q: Why London and then Paris?
Jules: I lived in London for a time--I love it so much. It's one of the best cities on the planet, really. When I closed my eyes and thought about where Elizabeth's journey would take her I knew London would be next. And Paris--I lived in Lyon for a time as well and I've spent a lot of time in Paris so it seemed only natural for the final book to be set there. I also set certain things in motion in The Irish Cottage that make it impossible to end anywhere else--I knew I wanted to end it in France. Plus, Elizabeth has a major sweet tooth, like me, and Paris has the most amazing dessert masters in the world. I spent many hours pouring over the websites of my favorites and discovering some new ones. Those were the hardest and best research nights--I'm nocturnal, I write at night--and pouring over the websites of my favorite masters was heaven and hell. I wanted to get on a plane already. My sugar intake definitely went up while I was writing The Paris Apartment--and my waistline with it.

Heartwarming and healing journey of discoveyThis book kept me turning the pages just to discover more about the characters and the well-woven mysteries from both of their lives. Although neither one is healthy emotionally, their difficult paths and similar struggles help to strengthen their bond on their journey to healing. Their intellectual chemistry and attraction to each other is fun to witness through the wise cracking banter and the deeper moments of connection through confidences disclosed. This lovely book expresses the beauty and humor of Ireland while contrasting its cultures and traditions thru the eyes, curiosities and preconceptions of a strong and beautiful American woman seeking personal identity and contentment. This novel has more depth of character and colorful story-telling than most novels of its kind. Best of all, the characters’ stories continue in a series of two more books, further exploring whether their personal journeys will end blissfully together or on much different paths. I do recommend this book as it causes the reader to reflect on their own choices and life direction along the way..Score: 5/5

Every chapter held a part of my beautiful holidays to the most amazing countryside, Fungi the dolphin I visited even got a mention. Great story telling, couldn't put it down, now to start the other two books, London and Paris, I'm Sure they won't disappoint. Read it you won't be disappointed..Score: 5/5

Great read.The characters, while obviously privileged, have some complicated histories which gradually are revealed. How much further will they unravel? A lovely Irish setting..Score: 5/5

The Irish CottageWell! my first attempt at ipad reading books. Am so glad to find a story I just couldn't put away. Such smooth, palatable & interesting way of describing every detail, but not too much you want to skip a few pages. One pet hate is objectionable swear words in this otherwise beaut book. If you soak up every tiny detail about Stephen, there's no reason to describe women's anatomy so blatantly when he was attempting to shoot her. I knew instantly the creep he was portraying, yet there was a shattered person inside, suffering. Yet gave you five stars, and an avid follower now. Thank you..Score: 5/5

Just couldn’t get into itWas initially attracted to the Irish theme but even the Irish references couldn’t save this story for me. Tried to persist due to other reviews but I just couldn’t connect with any of the characters. Gave up halfway through. Too many other books out there to read..Score: 2/5

Enjoyable, undemandingIf you want to read the sort of book that you would pick up in an airport to devour in a few days on holiday, that would entertain you but not ask you to think too hard about plot or characters, then this is a good one to choose. I read it quickly, on tea and lunch breaks at work, a few chapters in the evening at home, and I did enjoy it. However, great literature it is not - but then who wants to always read great literature ? One thing that annoys me though are number of 'typos' in this book, does no one ever proof read their work any more ? Phone instead of phobe, weary instead of wary, bare instead of bear, and those are only the ones I can think of immediately - such a shame to leave them in when they could have been easily fixed..Score: 4/5
