Nora Roberts is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of more than 200 novels. She is also the author of the bestselling In Death series written under the pen name J. D. Robb. There are more than 500 million copies of her books in print.
This second in the latest Roberts (Jewels of the Sun) trilogy introduces readers to Shawn Gallagher and Brenna O'Toole. Shawn is a talented songwriter, as happy in his family's pub kitchen as he is at the piano. He's known as a dreamer with not much business sense and a knack for being late and ignoring the practical details in life. Brenna is a skilled handywoman who designs furniture and buildings. Both have ignored the romantic feelings that have been part of them for years. But can a dreamer and a practical woman who is willing to push for what she wants find happiness? This story follows Brenna and Shawn as they find their friendship moving toward love. Roberts has a skill for writing excellent dialog, and listeners will find themselves wanting to know more about these characters. Reader Patricia Daniels does a fine job with the Irish accents and with bringing the tale to life. The Irish music that is used to signal the beginning and the end of each side is a nice touch. An essential addition to all romance collections.ÄDanna Bell-Russel, Library of Congress Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
