Review: Kiss Me Under the Irish Sky by Karen Foley


She’s ready for an enchanting summer on the Irish coast.

Chicago graduate student Rachel Woods is determined to complete her degree and take her place in the family textile business. But when she learns her late father once spent a summer at a traditional weaving mill in Ireland, she decides to follow in his footsteps. Rachel’s a city girl at heart, but soon finds herself falling under the spell of the Emerald Isle—and the charming man who saves her.

Conall McDermott knows all about following your dreams. He left medicine to pursue his love of running and turned that passion into a nationwide retail business. When his local trail leads him to a beautiful American woman trapped in a bog, Conall rescues her and is smitten. She wants to learn about Donegal tweed, and since his family owns the local woolen mill, he happily introduces her to the local weavers, culture, and community.

When the opportunity of a lifetime arises sooner than expected, can Rachel ignore the powerful attraction she and Conall share, or will she let him—and Ireland—weave their magic around her heart?


My Review:

Home is where the heart is.

When Rachel Woods traveled to Ireland for an internship at McDermott Mills, she never imagined she would find the man she wanted to spend her life with, Conall McDermott.  Rachel was supposed to be focusing on her goal, to learn all she could about manufacturing tweed and luxury textiles, and then go back to Chicago to work as a designer for her uncle’s company.  Rachel and Conall fell hard for each other in the short time Rachel was there.  Will they be able to continue their relationship, or with they end up heartbroken, when it is time for Rachel to go back home. 

This is such a beautiful and hopeful story.  I loved seeing Rachel and Conall fall in love.  I also enjoyed the setting of the story.  The author wrote with such detail, I felt like I just took a little trip to Ireland along with Rachel.  This is the first in a new book series and I am already anxious to read the next book.
