From Ireland With Love by Liz Hurley #Review #HivertonSistersBook4


I am delighted to be featuring the fourth in Liz Hurley's The Hiverton Sisters series, From Ireland with Love.  

Nick Byrne knows she’s the sensible one of the five Hiverton sisters. Independent, motivated, and successfully running her own business - she has never settled for anything less. And certainly, never used her family estate to give her a leg up.

But as an investigation is launched into her trading company, Nick’s world begins to crumble. Suddenly out of work, her mind wanders to her father - what would he do? She hardly knows anything of her orphaned parent and longs to find answers - some which will hopefully guide her.

With her newly gifted dog for company, Nick sets off to Ireland to retrace her family history. However, the high-flying city girl soon learns that every adventure comes with a few surprises - even in the shape of a romance.

Will Nick discover more about her father’s hidden past - or will she take home more than she bargained for?...

Be inspired by this feel good romcom, for fans of Trisha Ashley and Cathy Bramley.

 My  Thoughts

One of the things I enjoy about the Hiverton Sisters series is how individual each of the stories is. Each one so far has focused on a member of the family and therefore in some ways, you could read them as standalones. However, you get so much more is you read the whole story as the detail behind their lives is filled in and their characters are brought into focus. Family means everything and this makes for a warm and inclusive story.

    Nick is shown to be someone with hidden depths who may be reserved and a bit of a loner but who nevertheless puts her family and her business colleagues first. In Gabe, she meets someone who is much more upfront with his feelings. Furthermore, Nick sets out to uncover the history of her father's family in Ireland. In discovering some of that, she awakens some of the angst her sisters shared when their mother died and all her feelings of vulnerability bubble to the surface. This is a highly recommended series and you can be sure of a heart-warming read.

In short: Uplifting and fabulous!
