2016 BEVERLY HILLS BOOK AWARDS
Is it possible for a poor hash-house waitress to find love with a wealthy Irish horse breeder? Not as long as he thinks she conned his father into leaving her his cottage on the island of Inish Mor in the Aran Islands. To prove his assumption false, Samantha St. John sells her new inheritance to Kieran McDade for one Euro, receives his thank-you kiss on her cheek, and bids him farewell.
Never expecting to see him again, she is surprised to receive his invitation and a plane ticket to Ireland. He’s had second thoughts and offers Samantha a holiday at his home on FastTrack Farm where she charms not only his race horse, but Kieran himself. For Samantha, it is like a fairy tale, complete with a wicked witch, an elegant ball, and a horse race that could decide whether her Cinderella story will have a happy ending.
5.0 out of 5 stars – After my own heart!
Heather Mathre – October 5, 2015
Superb! Excellent! Extraordinary! Insanely Romantic! A tale of an independent young woman with a heart of gold setting in motion a chain of events that not even she could have imagined. And she did it all with a cup of tea and a bowl of soup. If you're looking for a feel-good, unbelievably hard to put down romance, you've found the right book!
5.0 out of 5 stars – I absolutely loved this book
Ronell Gowdy – September 25, 2015
I absolutely loved this book. I started it when we left for vacation and wasn't quite done with it when we arrived at our destination. Needless to say I could not pay attention to anyone until I finished this book. I could not put it down. Cannot wait to read book two.
5.0 out of 5 stars – smart, confident female character
Barbara Ostrander – September 25, 2015
This story grabs your attention from the first page and takes you on a merry adventure. The author pulls you in with a strong, smart, confident female character, and the promise of a good tale. From snowy Minnesota to Inish Mor in Ireland Samantha St. John and Kieran McDade leap from the pages and take you along on their journey. I know I've read a good book when I find myself thinking about the characters after I put the book down. This book captured my imagination and left me feeling glad that there is a book two in this series coming out soon. A great way to warm up a rainy fall day.
5.0 out of 5 stars – A WONDERFUL CINDERELLA STORY
Adrianne Lee – September 24, 2015
This wonderful romance pulls you in from the very first page and doesn't let go or disappoint. It's both heart-warming and heart-stopping. There are thoroughbred racers to fall in love with and cheer on. And an irresistible Irish hero who has given up on love and life until a fiery horse and a spirited woman present him a Once in a Lifetime shot at everything he's ever dreamed of. Can't wait to read more stories in the Wish Fulfilled series. Highly recommend.
