Thank you to Choclit for sending me a copy to review
In 2013 I was left captivated by Beneath an Irish Sky the stunning debut from Isabella Connor, so it was with much excitement that I delved into the pages of An Irish Promise.
As I was whisked away yet again to the Emerald Isle, I found myself pulled Into a wonderful story that was filled with romance, mystery, intrigue and issues that nearly all readers will relate to.
The story follows Rachel Ford, our main protagonist who is about to embark on a journey of revenge on the four people who made her childhood a living hell. As Rachel sets about her quest, she finds herself bonding with the marvellous Molly, being offered help by priest Daniel and encountering the handsome Australian that is Finn.
I instantly fell in love with Finn and it warmed my heart to discover the attraction that forms between him and Rachel,
There is no doubt that Isabella Connor has done it again, this story is immensely gripping and beautifully told.
