Irish Gold is the first book in Andrew Greely’s series about a beautiful, dynamic heroine Nuala Anne McGrail. She is born and bread in Ireland where she meets a young Chicago-Irish guy named Dermont. Being a Greeley novel, mystery from the past comes back to haunt the young couple as they discover dangerous reasons why Dermont’s grandparents left Ireland decades before. Bad guys show up and the plot gives some great twist and turns as Nuala reveals her talents not only at solving a mystery but sensing the spiritual world. It seems so normal you’ll wonder why you’re not sensing things from your boyfriend’s dead grandmother.
The characters are so realistic you feel like they live down the street. They make mistakes, say stupid things yet some how blunder into finding keys to the mystery as well as keys on how to love each other. It’s set in Ireland, which I love. Greely makes Ireland sound like a rainy paradise to discover Irish folklore and renewed love.
This book is a great escape on a snowy day or on a sandy beach. http://www.amazon.com/Irish-Gold-Nuala-McGrail-Novels/dp/0812550765
