Review: THE MIGHTY QUINNS: RILEY by Kate Hoffman

118455823From NetGalley:

What happens abroad, stays abroad. Or does it?

Research librarian Nan Galvin’s days were fairly ordinary…until she came across a box of letters. They were glimpses into the life of the mother she hardly knew—which made her question everything she knew about herself. Now, Nan desperately needs the truth. And so she travels to Ireland, with its rolling green hills…and drop-dead gorgeous Irishmen!

Songwriter Riley Quinn isn’t looking for The One. After all, a musician isn’t meant to settle down. Of course, that was before he met the American girl who makes his blood burn like fire. He can’t get enough of her. She’s his muse, his lover, his woman. And in a few days, she’ll be going home….

An Irish accent can make a good girl do bad things…

I’m a huge fan of The Mighty Quinns series. I have read all of the previous books and was really looking forward to the Irish Quinns! I wasn’t disappointed.  Riley Quinn is a great character – he is charming, sweet, poetic, and fun. He is always ready to have a good time, but is dependable and trustworthy. He takes his fragile feelings for Nan very seriously. Nan is also great, but in very different ways. In the beginning of the book she is almost dull. She hasn’t ever lived for herself and is just learning who she really is. By the end of the book she is very different from how she started out, although some things don’t change too much. I loved this couple. They have instant chemistry and use the ten days that Nan is spending in Ireland to the fullest. I love how Riley gets Nan to slow down and appreciate what’s around her instead of trying to see everything at once. Nan also teaches Riley about what he really wants in life. She makes him re-think what he’s been doing up to that point. This book is a sweet romance with some very touching moments. I can’t wait to read about Riley’s brothers in the next two books!

the book girl gives THE MIGHT QUINNS: RILEY a 4/5

  1. A librarian?!?! As a librarian I try to read all titles that have a librarian heroine just to see if they are cringe-worthy or not. Have got to read this one and hope Nan is as cool as Rachel in WHAT THE LIBRARIAN DID by Karina Bliss!
