It’s March which means spring is on the way and we get to celebrate all things Irish this month! I love everything Irish almost as much as I love all things Scottish. I’m just a Celtic gal at heart. Of I do need to thank our hosts, Review Wire Media and Chatty Patty’s Place who made all of this possible.
Of course with March and the whole Irish celebration I thought I would share with y’all some of my favorite Irish reads. First up has to be all of the Callaghans (and their cousins) from Abbie Zanders. Kane and Rebecca are my all time favorite Callaghan couple.
Kane is the oldest and the biggest of the brothers. He is super serious and you can totally see him as a Navy SEAL and recluse. He is also an investment banker/accountant for the family which seems out of place but works. He meets Rebecca while on a mission. Then she comes to Pine Ridge and they meet again. The moment that best describes their chemistry is the morning after they get married.
Kane’s brother and wife knocks on their hotel room door. He answers wrapped in a towel with Rebecca wrapped in a sheet and his brother wonders if Kane had somehow gotten bigger overnight. The couple walk away to get dressed and his brother notices that Kane’s back in covered in scratches. His wife says “It’s always the quiet ones.”
The Whole Series
Another favorite author with Irish themed books is Nora Roberts. She actually does several. I have reviewed The Cousins O’Dwyer series before. I also enjoy her Gallaghers of Ardmore series very much.
Jude Murray flies across the world from America to Faerie Hill Cottage to immerse herself in the study of Irish folklore. There she meets Aidan Gallagher who has devoted most of his life to managing the family pub. Although he did spend a few years traveling.
He knows plenty of legends and stories and as he shares them with Jude they begin to discover their own passion and magic begins to take hold. Just maybe they are the first pair to help heal a centuries old fairy’s heart.

Not the setting, but the main character – Scarlett O’hara, in “Gone With The Wind”. She’s half Irish, but her father was born in Ireland. He keeps telling her, “To anyone with a drop of Irish blood, the land they live on is like their mother”.I’ve always loved that sentiment, the love of the land.

I was cat sitting for them and they have a ton of bookshelves (like I used to have before I downsized). would not have been a book I’d have bought or necessarily drawn to other than it’s non-fiction. it was jaw dropping – that you’d think it was a novel: The teapot dome scandal
