Love and Blarney (Ballybeg #2) by Zara Keane

Love and Blarney (Ballybeg, Book 2) by Zara Keane (2014-08-12) - Zara Keane

Married in Manhattan…
Ruairí MacCarthy abandoned his life in New York to deal with a family crisis in Ireland. Twelve months later, he’s traded his three-piece suits and Wall Street career for jeans and a job managing his family’s pub in Ballybeg. When his estranged wife bursts back into his life looking for reconciliation, Ruairí must decide if home is where the heart is.

…True Love in Ballybeg.
Jayme King wants Ruairí back. She’s prepared to battle sheep, floods, and crazy Irish in-laws to get him. Discovering he lied about his past was a shock, but Jayme’s had months come to terms with the betrayal. Letting Ruairí go was the biggest mistake of her life. Can she persuade him to return to America and give their marriage a second chance?








The low rating is mostly my fault because I haven't read the first book and I have no way of knowing if this quicky novella is connected to the first book in the Ballybeg series or not or how it fits in or what Jayme and Ruairi have to do with it or what their history is which left me feeling a little lost and more than a little confused.

That however didn't take away from the emotional aspect of them struggling to hold onto a relationship that has basically died off due to the lack in communication between them. I'm sure a lot of people will be able to connect with that issue since many people these days divorce for a lot less.

Still worth the read but if you're like me and missing out on a large chunk of why this novella matters I suggest finding out if it has anything to do with the first book in the Ballybeg series.
