The Irish Cottage: Finding Elizabeth

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
“It was like a drug that I couldn’t get enough of. The Irish Cottage started it all and now that I have finished all three, I’m starting all over.” -Amazon Reviewer

"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 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.

- The Irish cottage3 star

Positives: Beautiful descriptions of country side and special places. Loved the food descriptions and the colorful characters. Negatives: the sex was MUCH to graphic. It’s like watching porn, yuck. Didn’t any of the friends work? Seems all they did was drink and eat at the pubs. Where did they get the money? Didn’t any of them have kids? Sorry for the negatives.

- Great Read5 star

I loved this book. I anxiously awaited the next letter to see what it would reveal about Beth’s past. I am so excited to see what will happen next in her journey. This is a fabulous book that keeps your interest.

- The Irish Cottage5 star

I truly enjoyed this book and what it had to say about people and their past. No one knows about another person unless it is shared. All of us need to be more gentle an kind to others and not be so quick to judge. It would make for a better world.

Juliet Gauvin has written an amazing thought provoking story! I was immediately drawn into the journey. I cried, l laughed, I lived through this story right along with the well developed characters.

- The Irish Cottage5 star

Loved it. Wonderful, complex character development kept me guessing and loving Elizabeth and Conner and all their friends.

- Wonderful escape4 star

What drew me to this book was that the setting was in Ireland. It’s an easy read in that you are immediately drawn in by the character descriptions. I love the strong female protagonist but mostly I love where the book took me. I felt as though I were right there in this lovely little cottage and every other place and/or event the character visited. I purchased book two and look forward to that journey too!

- Travel to Ireland and a great love, who could ask for more!5 star

Loved it! Having never traveled to Ireland, this book created a need in me to go there. The love story with all it’s poignancy and angst unfolded to make a great read and a hunger to know the rest of the story. I’m moving on to London in the next book!

- The Irish Cottage5 star

What an awesome book!! I was sorry to finish it. Can’t wait to read the next one to see what happens. Thank you for such a well written story.

- Amazing!5 star

Wonderful read

- A GEM!5 star

I LOVE reading. Primarily books set somewhere in Europe, with an element of history thrown in. Because I don’t get a lot of time to read, it is PRECIOUS, delicious time when I do. So I am hesitant & skeptical when it comes to committing to a new read. It needs to be WORTH IT. I have a series of national best sellers behind me & was longing for my next treasured story, so the bar was high. I came across The Irish Cottage whilst browsing the free options. In all honesty, the cover design didn’t have me convinced, but what’s that old adage...? ;) I am SO glad I looked into it further & even more ecstatic that there are 2 more in the series! I was literally giddy to read this story & cannot wait to dive into the next. THANK YOU for sharing these exquisite stories with us!

- The Irish cottage5 star

This was truly a splendid book! It changed my life. To choose joy,feel alive,& love without worrying about the pain that might happen. Amazing author! The writing just flowed all the way from beginning to end! Highly recommend.

- Finding Yourself5 star

I totally loved this story! It was so exciting and heartwarming as each day helped the character find herself. Couldn't stop reading and realized I learned a lot about myself. It's like a guide to how we need to find our true selves. Can't wait to start the next book! Thanks for a true delightful read!!

- The Irish Cottage5 star

Great story that had me hooked from the start. From the Irish countryside, the mystique of the aunt's letters to her relationship with Conner. Fast moving and charming!

- Excellent Insightful Book5 star

This book is more than just a standard romance novel. It is a journey through a woman’s awakening to what her life should be. I actually found myself wishing there would be a book about Mags as she is such a full colorful character even deceased in this book! Looking forward to Beth’s adventures & continued discoveries in London!!

- Excellent Book!5 star

This trilogy was extremely enjoyable!! I would highly recommend it!!

- Very good read !!!5 star

I loved how this book takes you through the main character’s process of emotions and life’s journeys, with a sense of lighthearted freedom and true inner strengths. I don’t usually leave reviews , just stars without explanation, but I can honestly say “ I couldn’t put it down “ I really enjoyed it and can’t wait to read the next....

- Beautiful5 star

This series was absolutely phenomenal, full of wonderful twists and turns and love and tears and most of all, the biggest reminder to live each day. Grateful for the author

- Vicarious Read5 star

I loved the storyline, twists, and romance. It made me step back and think about what makes me happy and who I am today. I can’t wait to keep reading the series to see what else Beth discovers about her life and about herself. I vicariously lived through Beth’s travels. Ireland is on my bucket list.

- The Irish cottage.5 star

I loved how the author helped Connor and Beth help each other rise above their darkness. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series to see what will become of their relationship

- The Irish Cottage: Finding Elizabeth5 star

Loved it! With one exception, that of the dinner party part with Connor’s friends was a bit over the top on using his wealth and hang up of his father.

- Love these books5 star

I read all three of this series in less than a week! I was so disappointed to come to the end of the last one! You are a literary genius. Please keep on writing..Carol

- The Irish Cottage5 star

A marvelous romantic story. I downloaded this as a free book and happily bought the next two in the series! The characters have lots of depth. I am mesmerized by Jules’s ability to tell a story. Nora Roberts was my favorite author for series reading in the past, but Juliet Gauvin is my new favorite.

- The Irish Cottage4 star

It was a page turning book! Enjoyed it very much:)

- The Irish Cottage5 star

I am a broken person right now, and haven’t been able to read anything enjoyable for some time. I recently lost my 28 year old daughter, following a 2 year battle with breast cancer. I’ve been given a bunch of self-help books about dealing with grief, but I haven't been able to bring myself to open one. I know I’ll just bawl, uncontrollably. I don’t really have a safe place or time to do that. So, the way I happened upon this book, was as a free download while I was visiting my son and his young family in another state. I took a book on the airplane, never opened it, and accidentally left it in the seat-back pocket. I lived in England for 3 years, where my daughter was born in the late 80s, so I enjoy stories set in the country in the UK. THIS one did not disappoint. I fell in love with the characters, and I cried with them in the dark if my return flight home. I felt like they helped me, in some small way, get in touch with my inner pain and that it is OK. I can’t tell you how healing (HOPEFULLY, eventually) this story has been for me. A nitpicker for details, I only detected maybe two writing errors (Erin form of a word, could be just typos), which is so refreshing!! I can’t wait to read book 2!!

- The Irish Cottage5 star

A lovely read. I enjoyed touching life from the viewpoint of a grown woman but with flashes back to a younger time and glimpses ahead to the end of the road. What do our 'memories' really tell us? And what action (or inaction) might we someday regret? Thank you!

- Such a good read5 star

I’ve been reading this book on my way to and from work and I love it. It’s a good light read that keeps you wanting to come back. Highly recommend this! Especially if you enjoy romantic novels based in Ireland!

- A Love Story5 star

What I loved about this story was that while the main characters felt an almost immediate attraction, it didn’t take the entire book for them to act upon it. We were there for the entire ride. The author made it very easy to picture the settings. Also, she gave some nice places to visit if you ever get to Ireland. I enjoyed this book and can’t wait to read the next book!

- The Irish Cottage: Finding Elizabeth5 star

Enjoyed this book. Did not want to put it down. Looking forward to reading the series.

- Fun read!5 star

I really enjoyed the Irish Cottage. The characters were interesting in their flawed and intense interactions. Connor and Beth’s story kept me turning the pages to see what would happen next in their relationship. The setting in Ireland was intriguing and the descriptions of the customs and towns enjoyable. If you want a fun and interesting read grab this book and enjoy the adventure, heartache and romance!

Loved the book. The characters are real and have become dear friends. Can’t wait to read The London Flat to see if gorgeous Connor comes back.

- Thrilling story5 star

I have enjoyed your book, I have had a lot of interesting things in my life. I didn't find out about it until my middle 70's. I hope to be able to buy your other book later. I am bedridden and I keep my income back in case I ever have to be in a nursing home. I hope to find out if I can have my back repaired next week. I have metal in my back and had to have a special test to find out if I was strong enough. I was married 57 years before my husband passed 12-05-14. A lot of stories from those years. Thanks for such a good story. Marjorie Leatherwood

I just finished this series and wow, every thing that I had written down like “hmm I wonder what he meant by that gesture” or “I wonder if she is going to come back to that later” she answered beautifully. The only thing that I assumed would come from this series is another series focusing on Audre’s love life. I thought Audre would end up with Killian. Will you make another series on them?

- The Irish Cottage5 star

A very well written story with characters that become real. A story that touches us all as we travel this life; sometimes in touch with our true selves but most often not. We search to find our own true selves and those events where we really feel at peace and connected; as we follow the adventures of Lizzie and Connor. Looking forward to books two and three!

Would have loved to have known a real life Mags!

- Finding oneself5 star

I truly enjoyed reading The Irish Cottage. I too spent time on a life journey to find myself. Now I’m waiting to meet my Connor lol. I have trouble sleeping through the night so when that happened I read your book and always fell back to sleep when loving thoughts. That was so refreshing. Thanks again and I look forward to reading The London Flat. Blessings Connie

Excellent romance, adventure novel. I enjoyed the storyline of a strong and yet conflicted woman who learns how to deal with her childhood troubles and move forward in life in a positive way.

I enjoyed reading this book and will continue to read the series. The characters were real and the writers excellent portrayal made you feel you knew them. I think we all lose a bit of ourselves along life’s journey and it is enthralling to think we can find those things we lost.

Excellent book I couldn’t put it down until it was finished. It brought back memories of some wonderful characters I met in Ireland last fall.

- Not a happy ever after4 star

But a good read. I generally stay well clear of romance stories, they're just too much like fairy tales. But I enjoyed the Irish Cottage. Good characters, well paced, a little more humour injected into the story would be nice, maybe in another book about Beth.

- Irish Cottage5 star

Excellent book reflects the characters involved so well. Liz needs to stop being afraid

This is a well written story of lost love, finding oneself and the journey of love and life. This is a must read. I can't wait to read the second book in this series.

- Been looking for a story like this...5 star

Written to make you question your own life choices and what be braving can mean in a partnership. I couldn't put it down. Love the quirkiness and raw emotion in the characters and the ode to Ireland.

- Irish Cottage4 star

The Irish Cottage had good character development and a good sense of adventure that brings in an audience.

- The Irish Cottage5 star

I loved this book. I couldn't put it down. I usually read action and mystery books. This one may have touched the romantic in me.

- The Irish Cottage5 star

I highly recommend this gem! After spending the last few years recovering from a debilitating illness, I have tried reading numerous titles but couldn't find anything to keep my interest until this book. I found the characters very relatable; the storyline captivating; and I found myself getting lost in the book forgetting about my own world for a while. I can't wait to read the next book in this series, and hopefully find more by this author!

- The Irish Cottage5 star

The Irish Cottage is a totally captivating book that you will not want to put down! It is romantic, adventurous and suspenseful. The storyline is well thought out and the book is well written. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to be swept away! I absolutely loved this book and the writers knack for making the whole world disappear while I was reading. Well done!

Is kind of reminded me of a Eat Pray Love but with an Irish love affair and more to come... loved reading it and can't wait to read the next one.

- The Irish Cottage5 star

I really enjoyed this novel. I am at the stage now when I like to read gentle books and don't need to be scared to death, I just want to be entertained. This story did just that, thank you. I shall certainly read other books by this author.

- The Irish Cottage: Finding Elizabeth4 star

This was an enjoyable relaxing read, good for a summer day or even for a winter day if you have a nice fire to sit by. Although it wasn't hugely surprising as the story unfolded, it did have its colourful scenes. All in all it was a pleasant romance.

- The Irish Cottage: Finding Elizabeth4 star

This is a very good book. Although the main character is a 35 year old lawyer, it's a sort of coming of age/finding ones' self/love story all rolled into one. The characters are well rounded; the location, Ireland, is beautifully described; the story, well told! I'm looking forward to loading the other 2 books in this trilogy, so I can learn what awaits Elizabeth on her self awareness adventure.

- The irish cottage4 star

Easy fun book to read interesting characters

- The Irish Cottage...Finding Elizabeth5 star

I loved this book...rich characters, moving story line and written so that the reader is drawn into the imagery of Ireland. Imagine my disappointment to come to the end only to discover that there is no end, only two more books in a series to bring the story line to a conclusion. I hate when an author does that without adequate warning at the beginning of the book that this is part of a trilogy. In order to finish I will need to buy 2 more books. Since I don't plan to do that I will be left wondering why the entire story couldn't have been condensed into a longer book so I only had to buy one book. Disappointing.

- Such a great read!5 star

I stumbled upon this book quite by accident but what a happy accident it was! Engaging characters, lovely place setting, all around a good read. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

- The Irish Cottage4 star

I enjoyed your book very much, I am used to going to my local library for books and received the ebook email, chose your book first because of the title (my husband if Irish decent) and also downloaded the London Flat which I will read very soon. I wasn't sure what kind of books could be found on this library but I am very pleased with the experience and will get more and won't worry about paying a little for these ebooks. I will keep your name close so that I can find others written by you! Thank you for this nice story☃

I really enjoyed this book, a bit raunchy at times but a beautiful love story that left me smiling every time I picked it up and put it down. Look forward to reading more from the author

- The Irish Cottage : Finding Elizabeth5 star

A lovely, well written tale of love, anguish and adventure.

- The Irish cottage5 star

Really good read, would like to read following book, the London flat but is quite dear and can't afford it

- The Irish Cottage5 star

I really enjoyed this book. It was full of intrigue right to the end as well as having plenty of highs and lows and romance. I like a book I can't wait to turn the page to see what happened next. This book did that for me. Well done

- Enjoyable, undemanding4 star

If 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.

- The Irish Cottage5 star

Really enjoyed the story . Kept you totally fixed and very hard to put down . Highly recommend this to anyone . Can't wait to start next book .

- Not what I expected5 star

This book and the author is amazing. Not what I expected at all! A must read!

- The Irish Cottage5 star

A wonderful, romantic ride that caught me just at the right time! A great sexy read with content!

- The Irish Cottage4 star

Creative romance with enough twists and turns to make you want more. Lucky for the reader, it looks like there are 2 more adventures for Beth/Lizzie and the reader.

- The Irish Cottage5 star

Loved it. Full of real issues faced in complications families always bring. Love Ireland and have been most places mentioned so that enhanced the story for me. Personally If i could change one thing, I could do with less graphic relationship scenes, but otherwise I enjoyed the book and probably will buy the next.

- The Irish cottage5 star

This was a great read....and sexy......you felt every move by these words written. I’ll read the London flat when it’s $1.99.... Annie

- A fun read4 star

Interesting characters, a nice setting, a good read with a healthy dose of romance

- The Irish Cottage5 star

I enjoyed this book so much that it was hard not to devour it at one setting...but life interrupts and couldn’t wait to pick it up at days end! The characters of Connor and Lara fit perfectly together. The descriptions of settings and locale were superb and I felt as if I was there. Excellent storytelling!

- Love this book5 star

Jules is an excellent writer. Here use of words forms beautiful scenes, as well is conveying the emotion of the characters. I read romance novels for years, and stopped because it was all so fake. Jules, thank you for showing the real complexities of life, that not everything is as it appears on the surface, and.....for using condoms in erotica!!!!!!

- The Irish Cottage5 star

I found this book on accident and was intrigued just by the title. After many years of genealogical research, Irish and English films and TV series and a DNA test, I found out the I am 49% Irish, hence the interest. I read this in one setting, I just couldn’t put it down! Laughing through certain parts, I could see this playing out in my minds eye, such as the film “PS, I Love You”. I loved it, guess it’s on to London now...

- ♥♥♥5 star

I absolutely LOVED this book!! I connected with the main character and her love as well. I've always wanted to run away to Ireland and find myself. Can't wait to read more from this series!

- The Irish Cottage5 star

Loved it. Great story from first page. Couldn't wait to read the next part.

- Lazy Sunday Read4 star

An easy book to relax with, the descriptions make you feel like you are there. An atypical ending, enough to keep you wanting more. This book came up in a search for books “like Nora Roberts”; the author has a style of her own, and did not disappoint. I’m off to read the next one in the series!

- The Irish Cottage3 star

The mystery of this story pulled me in quickly. I was initially unaware that it was a trilogy which I would have continued had it not been for the explicit, unrealistic sex scenes. Now I will not continue reading Mags' remaining letters or learn what happens in the life of her niece. Excellent writing can create passion and desire in a story without needing to plunge into what my very liberal and progressive friend calls "bodice-ripper mentality".

- Wonderful story5 star

I enjoyed this book so much I bought the second one. I NEVER buy the next book in a series. I get online books from bookbub, read the first one and done, on the cheap, never intending to buy the second one. Thank you for a wonderful story, already reading The London Flat.

- Great book5 star

Kept in entertained. I can wait to read the next book the series

- Great Read5 star

Very well written. Kept my interest. Can’t wait to read the next!

- Very pleasant fantasy!5 star

Just as it should be.

- Good read5 star

I thoroughly enjoyed this book even though it’s out of my usual genre. I received this copy free but will definitely have to buy the rest of the series. I’ve enjoyed Beth’s journey to find herself so far and I can’t think that I won’t enjoy the rest.

- Great book!!!!5 star

I truly enjoyed this book and can’t wait to read the other ones!!!

- The Irish Cottage5 star

I don't write reviews. Ever. I read....it's what I do best, but oh my lord this book! Why have I never heard of this author?! I read voraciously and have missed this hugely talented woman who plays with words so well. True that I have ....related with characters, held back tears so painfully only to sob...while reading, loved and hated characters......but this book I literally laughed out loud I startled myself. I then continued to laugh so hard over the scene on St Patrick's day and the "never ever" game. In decades of reading I have never laughed while reading a scene to this extent. Oh my lord this books shines bright for every quality an experienced romance novel reader hopes for. I'm onto book two next and anything else this talented author cares to write.

- The Irish cottage5 star

Found the book well worth reading and would recommend it to all of my face book friends. The story I found was not only well written but it made you want to keep reading.the plot was perfect and a lot of people I know could relate to it.i found my self looking back at some of my past after leaving home at 17 and returning after I turned 36. Some parts made me sad but overall it made me very happy. I now look back on my past with no regret. In all the books I've read this was one of the best. Hope to read more of your stories. Stay safe, and keep up the good work.

- The Irish Cottage5 star

Good read. Well written. Good story line.

- The Irish Cottage: Finding Elizabeth5 star

Good story, liked the characters.

- Beautifully Written5 star

I get annoyed when I read books full of typos, wrong words which the editor missed and incorrect grammar. This book had none and this allowed the writing to shine. The characters had depth in their personalities and in their love for each other. Full of romance, mystery and adventure. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I highly recommend it.

- Great read!!!5 star

Really enjoyed this book and am looking forward to the "continuation"!!!!!! Keep writing!!!! I'll keep reading!!!!

- The Irish Cottage5 star

This was a fun read!

- The Irish Cottage5 star

Great! I don't even like romance and can't wait to read the next!

- Exceptional read!5 star

Trying to find a new author who can truly tell a good story is a little difficult at times. However, this book was so good. I enjoyed the plot and character development. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series.

- The Irish Cottage5 star

Good descriptive writing which draws captivating word pictures and engages the reader's visual imagination.

- Beginning of a reading marathon!4 star

Very good story. Enjoyed being engaged in the main character's thought process. Would have given 5 stars, but the uber-rich, fairytale premise of the main characters is so unreal that it's unrelatable for me. Nevertheless, I clicked immediately at the end to purchase next books in series to continue the story.

- An escape!5 star

This is a great story about how Elizabeth discovers the truth about her life and herself in the literal and figurative arms of Ireland. I couldn't put it down! It's the "what if" you had the means and the opportunity to explore a different side of you - exciting, scary, and freeing. I can't wait to find out what happens next.

- The Irish cottage5 star

I am at a time in my life where I don't feel I can waste precious hours reading "fluff." I was intrigued by this novel's description, and decided it might be just what I needed to escape from reality for awhile. It proved to be the perfect combination of mystery, romance and introspection. I couldn't put it down. Now I am looking forward to reading books two and three. Thank you.

- The Irish Cottage5 star

New author for me. I enjoyed this book enough that I will be buying the other two to find out how the story ends. I am hoping Elizabeth doesn't disappoint me with her future choices and life decisions. She has already aggravated me a couple of times. But if she haden't, I guess her story would be over and I wouldn't be looking forward to two more books that would continue her quest to find and to know herself. To read about the places she travels to allows me to travel with her, my favorite way to travel. I am sure anyone reading this book will enjoy it, it has everything. Mystery, adventure, a love story, heartbreak, family, friendships............

- Irish cottage5 star

This is a lovely book. I started my new life's journey in 2006 after my divorce. I enjoy reading about strong women and their journey's. Your story helps me on my sometimes rocky path. I just came back from Ireland! ( checked off my bucket list) so I now appreciated the landscape and cultural nuances surrounding the characters. I look forward to reading your other books. Best regards, Laura Lee Ganske

- !!!5 star

Great story. Holds your interest throughout!

- Loved it!5 star

This is a beautiful story and kept my interest. I finished this one and bought the next two on the same day. Looking forward to the next part of this story.

- The London flat5 star

Loved the Ireland setting, great book.

- The Irish Cottage5 star

What a great book! I cried when I got to the end and realized it is continuing the love story in two additional books! Of course, I cried (and laughed) while reading this heart warming story. Thank you for sharing your gift of writing!! I fully recommend this - just be ready to read til the wee hours!!

- The Irish Cottage5 star

Lovely trilogy!!! Could not put it down!

- The Irish Cottage5 star

A beautiful tale of loss, love, vulnerability, fate, adventure, intuition, and love. We should all take a lesson from the author's main characters, Elizabeth and Connor, and listen to our inner voice. A must read! Well done!

- The Irish Cottage : Finding Elizabeth5 star

I could not put this book down! Loved every twist and turn of the plot and the wonderful character development.

- Absolutely Awesome!!!5 star

Being honest was looking for a book by Nora Roberts and happened upon this one. I loved it!!! Please!!! Keep them come'n!

- 2thumbsup4 star

I have been sick for almost two weeks and found even reading difficult. I was looking for a good read to capture my thoughts but didn't make me work terribly hard, something to make my heart smile. This was the perfect book. You think you know what is going to happen, then you go into a new direction. It was fun, enjoyable, made me think about choices and their importance. Loved the book and will finish the series! Give this author a chance if you haven't read her before. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

- The Irish cottage4 star

Loved reading a story with a strong female character. This book helped me out many miles on my treadmill. Yes, I can read while walking!😉

- The Irish Cottage: finding Elizabeth5 star

Throughly captivating. As stated I need to finish before sleeping. I moving story of people and how our childhoods affect us. It embraces what distortions are possible when only viewed thru the eyes of a child. The book held my attention through out the book which is a rare greet these days. Great storyteller!

- The Irish cottage: finding Elizabeth4 star

Great read! Looking forward to the next one.

- The Irish Cottage5 star

Really enjoyed your book. Loved the story line. going to read the follow up book. It's nice to just be carried off by the story.

- Engrossing5 star

Rich character development combined with lush descriptions of Ireland and the judicious use of both Gaelic and Irish slang created a story which was easy to read and get lost in.

- The Irish Cottage5 star

Enjoyed escaping into this world for a few days. Interesting characters, good story, beautiful descriptions and a reminder to live more purposefully. Looking forward to The London Flat!

- The Irish Cottage: Finding Elizabeth5 star

Beautifully written. Heartfelt. I will read it again. Kudos to the author. And thank you.
