Review: Love Always by Carol Marinelli

After a tumultuous year, Kate Madison is hoping for an uneventful Christmas alone. When her family offers to change their plans to join her, she impulsively declares she’s headed to her family’s little cottage on the rugged Irish coast. Baile Dóch holds many cherished memories and will be an ideal Christmas retreat.

Kate is stunned to learn that her first love Liam O’Farrell has moved back to Baile Dóch. Sparks fly when they meet again and though Kate tries hard to attain her planned peaceful Christmas, Liam has other ideas that include a scorching reunion.

This time Liam’s older, wiser and sexier too.

And not inclined to lose her twice.

My Review:

A second chance with a first love, beautiful Ireland, and a Christmas story all rolled into one.  It doesn’t get much better.

Kate Madison never forgot Liam O’Farrell, the boy she met while in Ireland one summer with her family.  He was her first love.  When Kate discovers her fiancé cheating and calls off the wedding, she decides to spend her Christmas holiday alone in Ireland.  But Kate doesn’t spend the holiday alone when she finds out Liam is also single.  Catching up couldn’t get much better and Kate soon finds herself falling in love all over again.  And, that was the last thing Kate planned.  Liam told Kate from the start, he doesn’t have time for a relationship.  He’s too busy with his career.  Being a doctor in a small town doesn’t leave much free time for anything.  Will Kate and Liam be able to turn their temporary reunion into the happily ever after that they both deserve? 

I was hooked on this story from the very start and when Kate landed in Ireland and saw Liam, I knew it would only get better from there.  Second chance love stories are some of my favorites, so I really enjoyed this book.  I look forward to reading the rest of the series with Kate’s sisters too.  They played an important part in this book and I want to know more about them and learn their stories as well.  The author did a fantastic job with all of the details.  I felt like I really knew the characters when the book was over and even had great visuals of the Ireland scenery.  I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good romance in a beautiful location.
