Book Recommendation – Kinsale Kisses by Elizabeth Maddrey

Book Description:

She wants stability. He wants spontaneity. What they need is each other.

Colin O’Bryan cashed out of the software company he founded and started a new life in Ireland. Content to wander from town to town as a traveling musician, he had no goals beyond healing from the betrayals that led to his career change, and finding his next gig.

After the death of her parents, Rachel Sullivan hoped her aunt’s B&B on the Southern coast of Ireland would be a place for her to settle and start a new life. Though she can’t deny the sparks in Colin’s touch, his lack of concern for hearth and home leave her torn.

Can this free-spirited minstrel win her heart or will Rachel choose roots and stability over love?

This gentle inspirational romance will take you on a journey to Cork County, Ireland and give you a glimpse of Kinsale, Charles Fort, Blarney Castle, and Cobh as Rachel and Colin undergo their own journey of self-discovery as they learn that God’s plans are bigger than their own and that waiting on Him is worth the insecurity it brings.

Narelle’s Thoughts:

I enjoyed reading Kinsale Kisses and travelling around Ireland with Rachel and Colin. Rachel travels to Cork County to help her spinster aunt run her bed and breakfast in Kinsale. Rachel recently lost her dad, and she was forced to sell the family rental cabins business in West Virginia that were rundown due to the expensive hospital bills from her late mother’s decade long battle with cancer. Aunt Siobhan in Ireland is Rachel’s only remaining family, and Rachel is looking to use her hospitality background and put down roots somewhere.

Colin is the former CEO of a software development company in Chicago. He sold out of the business he helped build when his business partner did the wrong thing by him. Colin is now a musician who’s travelling around Ireland playing gigs in pubs, and he lands in Kinsale when Rachel first arrives in the seaside town.

A fun and lighthearted romance develops as Rachel and Colin explore County Cork and the possibility of their friendship and simmering attraction becoming something more. I recommend Kinsale Kisses to contemporary romance readers who like short and sweet vacation romance novellas with a light faith element set in beautiful Ireland.
