This is the final book in the Heartfelt trilogy, and it doesn’t disappoint. In fact, I think it was my favourite of the three, and that’s saying something. There’s something so irresistible about these books.
The warmth of Innishmahon, the cosy island off the west coast of Ireland, and its delightful inhabitants, draws you in and makes you long to stay. The characters are so beautifully drawn.
Marianne, practical, determined, compassionate, is the main character, and she is the doorway into this lovely place – a place where people go to escape. The residents of Innishmahon stand apart from the rest of the world, expecting no favours, and sorting out their own problems in their own way. No wonder, then, that even famous Hollywood movie stars, producers and agents cannot resist the delights of the island.
Ryan O’Gorman, the biggest superstar of them all, lost his heart to Innishmahon and to Marianne, but they had a lot to go through before they could be together. In this final episode, they still have battles to fight, including what could be the biggest one of all.
By the end of this book, secrets will be exposed, hearts broken and hearts healed. There are twists and turns galore and quite a few shocks and surprises. The action never flags.
As I came to the end of the story, I felt my own heart begin to grieve. It was as if I had just said goodbye to some dear friends. A really wonderful, heartwarming trilogy, and this is a fitting conclusion to the series. 5/5
