Review & Thoughts
Miracles in Wild Rose Bay (Sandy Cove #6) by Susanne O’Leary
Published: December 15, 2020 by Bookouture
A new start in an old place.
Only a few chapters in I could already tell this was going to be a sweet story about the importance of getting back to your roots. You can take the girl out of Ireland but you can’t take Ireland out of the girl.
Intriguing story and I loved that there was a bit of mystery threaded throughout. I was looking forward to finding out the missing pieces and thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful imagery that came to mind while reading this book.
Themes, Elements & Notes: Themes of family history and the desire to get back to your roots. Although some areas thrive on tourism, some places are better left undiscovered off the beaten path by the masses to keep hold of the beauty that nature has to offer.
In a Nutshell: Overall I enjoyed the author’s writing style; the story was filled with intrigue and beautiful imagery. I’m excited to have found a new go-to author and I’m looking forward to checking out her other books.
My Rating: 4/ 5 Stars

About the Book – Miracles in Wild Rose Bay
Book Jacket Description:
A truly unforgettable Irish romance set on the shores of the Wild Atlantic Way.
Arriving in Sandy Cove to views of the shimmering ocean, Tara O’Rourke is excited to get to work. She’s been sent from New York City to take photos of Ireland for a travel magazine, and she knows the perfect area to visit: the mysterious, picturesque Wild Rose Bay.
Staying in her sister Kate’s sweet little cottage, the long nights and beach strolls inspire Tara. But Kate isn’t pleased with Tara’s assignment: she doesn’t want the untouched beauty of the area spoiled by tourists. And when Tara ignores Kate and heads out on her own, she encounters more opposition from Kate’s handsome friend Mick O’Dwyer.
Despite their differences, Tara soon finds herself captivated by Mick, and as he helps her research the area, they uncover a tumbledown farmhouse that holds a secret about Tara’s family. Soon Tara is forced to make a choice: should she give up her story and the career she’s always wanted, or the man and the country she’s falling in love with?
The ultimate escape to beautiful Ireland. Totally captivating from the first page to the last, Miracles in Wild Rose Bay is perfect for fans of Sheila O’Flanagan, Debbie Macomber and Mary Alice Monroe.
