I especially didn't like what happened with Niccolo and Megan. I read this because I liked the first Goddesses Anonymous book, and reviews of this one were positive. I think she gets lonely sitting on the shelf. Could you understand the reaction of his daughters when it seemed he had come back into their lives? The book opens in the year 2000 when the Donaghue sisters reunite at the family-owned Whiskey Island Saloon near Lake Erie. Whiskey Island is my all time favorite non-classic book. I'm also putting up my newly edited romance backlist and love re-reading and updating them a bit. I refer to this story as a Saga and the ending was good.
I am okay with the romance aspects of this author. I also liked the 100 year old mystery which was a secondary story to the main story. John, a tropical island paradise far removed from their suburban life. I also liked the 100 year old mystery which was a secondary story to the main story. This is not a review. Not so much for me.
I truly enjoy the writing of this author. Peggy, the youngest, was raised by her sisters and aunt after her mother died and her father mysteriously disappeared. Her latest novel is entitled Fortunate Harbor, the second book in her Happiness Key series. It is about roots, family and the fine line between strength and vulnerability. One thing that bugged me was the amount of work the sisters put in willingly to run the family bar. Since the day it was discovered in Australian waters, the Pearl of Great Price has cursed the Robeson and Llewellyn families. There is the history of parts of Cleveland, there is lots of information about Irish American and then there is the way that the three sisters grow and mature.
Richards tells the modern and historical stories with the same finesse. Made me tired just reading about it! The sisters all have deep secrets, and their story is interspersed with a century-old story of a loving couple, the tragedy that befell them, their link to the present-day Donaghue family, and quite possibly the reason the girls' mentally -ill father h What a fantastic story! Susan Sematov is proud of her son, Raz, a high school pitcher so athletically talented that he's being recruited for a full-ride scholarship to a Division I college, with a future in major league baseball. I hope the history was accurate because it was fascinating. I'm looking forward to the next book by Emilie Richards. Next I will read the next in the Goddesses series. ©2000 Emilie Richards McGee All rights reserved including the right of reproduction in whole or in part in any form.

Meanwhile, Casey's childhood playmate Jon Kovats, now a sexy young prosecutor, comes and goes in the most mysterious ways. They own the Whiskey Island Saloon and each has a love story of their own to tell. Ha ha I was hoping it was worth my time and effort… I enjoyed the main characters of Lena, Terrence, Megan, Niccolo, and Patrick. Archived from on March 25, 2006. The Irish Donague family is followed both in the 1800s through a priests journal, and also in current day.
Once a struggling community of Irish immigrants, Lake Erie's Whiskey Island has a past as colorful as the patrons who frequent the Whiskey Island Saloon. But, deeply caught up in both stories as I was, it didn't take more than a paragraph or two for me to adjust. I will definitely read other books by this author. It is definitely a good read! In real life are women sometimes caught in these situations? The book tells the story of three sisters who have inherited a saloon called Whiskey Island in Ohio City, a suburb of Cleveland, near Lake Erie and the dilapidated, ruined, 'homeless camp' of the Whiskey Island area itself. I read this because I liked the first Goddesses Anonymous book, and reviews of this one were positive. The characters are amazing hardworking people, but not without failings. There were a few spots where I felt we needed to move out of the past, but it all made sense at the end.
I have read Danielle Steel couldn't stand more than one and enjoy Nora Roberts but find her very formulistic and know exactly what is going to happen before it happens. Fortunately, that stew recipe along with the recipe for Megan's soda bread can be found on. Spiraling back 120 years in time, the reader is then dropped into the world of Irish immigrants Lena and Terence Tierney. This story, for some reason, is an exception. She goes from the present to a family history story from the prohibition The history was impeccable she must have researched the era of prohibition. The descriptions of poverty were harrowing, including the powerlessness of poor women.
LibraryThing Review User Review - dragonflydee1 - LibraryThing I really enjoyed this story. I was so caught up in the story that it became my go-to-book when I needed something to read for a few minutes, during a lone meal or to relax before going to bed. In 2004, Richards began a new series of single-title novels centered around quilting. She has 4-year-old Ashley, about whom she says very little, in tow. There is a sequel which I look forward to reading. En effet, il se déroule à deux époques différentes, la première à notre époque, puis nous basculons ensuite à la fin du 19ème siècle, nous découvrons alors l'histoire des ancètres de la Famille Donaghue, une histoire lourde est chargée de secrets. This novel's sequel, The Parting Glass, is good as well, but not as strong as this one.
I thought from the glowing reviews that this would be a stand-out romance. Two stories unfolding at the same time. Visit me at my web site, emilierichards. And I'm sure the full version of the story will explain a lot more. Each has their own struggles in life but the three of them come together once again after a failed car jacking in the family saloon.
