      I'm not a rom-com reader. I never intend to venture into the world of romance as a writer. I'm fantasy (The Last Dragon Slayer) mainly, with perhaps a smattering of folklore, (The Lambton Worm). So what the hell was I thinking - reading a soppy romance set in Kerry, Southern Ireland?Well, it was free at the time of purchase and it was by a fellow Kboarder. So that helped to sway me. Plus I love Ireland, the Irish and really need to go again soon. Maybe this was something of a literary holiday? T [...]

      Well, I'm very pleasantly surprised from this freebie! I didn't expect much when I picked it up, but the setting which was in Ireland was enough to make me try it out, and I'm glad I did.The heroine is an almost 40 year old woman, recently divorced who quite unexpectedly gains a property in Kerry. She goes to visit, ends up staying for longer than planned, starts working on a B&B held by a prickly Polish woman, goes on a date with her solicitor and has to give up her Prada dresses (she was [...]

      A very enjoyable chick lit novel by Susanne O’Leary—the sort of novel that’s delightfully easy to read. Predictable? Yes, of course it is, it’s chick lit. It has the requisite scum-bag and the hunky chunk, whom you know the very likable heroine is going to get, ultimately, and it’s great fun finding out just how, in Susanne’s uncluttered and crisp style.Megan’s surprise inheritance from a great-uncle of a property in a beautiful part of Ireland comes at rather an opportune time. Sh [...]

      Hot Property is an enjoyable, short, well-written story, about an Irish woman who inherits a run down property and who - despite advice to the contrary - decides to renovate it and live there. The delightful characters she meets along the way and the mystery encountered, are what make this book a happy read. There are some laugh-out-loud moments in this one!Set in the gorgeous Irish countryside, Megan soon comes face to face with the less palatable side of farming and a conspiracy to get her out [...]

    • Tami (synchro from BL) says:

      Highly predictable, but still enjoyable. Really, the horoscope early on wasn't necessary. It was pretty clear from the beginning who was supposed to become the HEA male part. But still. It was a nice read.

    • L.W. says:

      This was a good read and had all the elements of a good story. However, the author set up some great potential conflicts, and then you were left hanging. Spoiler alert: For example she set up the fact that she had sleazy cousins who did all they could to get the house and property, yet she got it. If they were as sleazy as she portrayed, why didn't they harass or make some attempt to get her out of there?The next point, if the jewelry was legend, and had been looked for was a small towne plumber [...]

      A delightful romantic reade! Perfect for a rainy afternoon. The chemistry between is characters is delightful, the plot is predictable but still entertaining and holds your attention without any problem.

    • ReadAlong With Sue says:

      Let me start off by saying, thank you Susanne for allowing me to read your latest book before it was released, it was an honor and a pleasure. I love the way you write, I just knew I would enjoy this book as much as I enjoyed your last one. I didn't realize how much I would enjoy reading this story. The cover portrays it all. The building was just as I imagined it to be.A love a book with a good cover, I may sound shallow, but its the first thing I look at before anything else.Let me say readers [...]

      Just makes me want to visit Ireland even more than I already did! The way Susanne O’Leary describes the landscape it makes you feel like you are there already.Loved the story from start to finish. Fun light-hearted read to get stuck into and keeps you entertained throughout.The saying it never rains but it pours come in handy with everything that goes wrong with the house Megan inherits. If its not doors falling off, slurry being pored on the fields next to her or the cows escaping, its ghosts [...]

      Megan is a little spitfire when she's riled, "Megan drew a breath. "You had the nerve to put those calves in my garden when my back was turned. A neighbor called to tell me they had broken loose and were on the road. He thought they were mine." But the's nothing compared to the hellion that she is when she's uber mad, "I wasn't going to say anything but hey, why should I be so kind to someone who's done what you did to me? I used you for sex?" She laughed again. "If I was going to use anyone for [...]

      This entertaining read features an Irish lady who inherits a small house in County Kerry and falls in love with the location, though the property is close to derelict. She's from a city background so doesn't know whether to move, treat the cottage as a summer home or sell. There's a little land - that might go for building or a caravan park. The various locals, especially a Polish girl in a guesthouse, are quick to leap in with all kinds of advice, from the financial to the personal. And more th [...]

      I liked this book. The main character Megan was struggling with her identity after a divorce and losing her job. She lost sense of who she was and what she wanted. In the end she found happiness in the least likely place and with the least likely person. The relationship with both Dan and Paudie was predictable at times. I enjoyed her friendship with Beata and thought their dialogue seemed true to the setting in which the book takes place.

      I so loved this story. It was a nice warm enjoyable read.Didn't expect the twist in it. Was glued to this book all day. Am looking forward to reading more of this authors fabulous work.Received this from author in return for an honest review.

    • Mallory Dodge says:

      I felt the relationships between all the characters weren't believable. I wasn't invested enough in any of them. Every situation felt rushed. It had so much potential, but I found it lacking.

    • Rachel Koch Gonzalez says:

      O'Leary did a really good job keeping me off track of what would happen in the end: until the last quarter of the book. I was completely convinced that Dan was the guy, and I absolutely hated it. I didn't like him one bit from the first page of the book, but he stuck around, so I though he'd go through some magic change and become the hero every reader wants in a romance novel. But as I kept reading, I kept hating him, more and more. Padie was the guy I wanted from the very start, but there were [...]

      Fast read of what I categorize as "garbage books" - not for you if you are looking for anything beyond mindless entertainment

      Pleasant read. Setting, characters, all of it!

      Megan O’Farrell hasn’t been to her great uncle Pat’s home since she was eight years old, and yet, he leaves it to her in his will.

Some of the locals are angry that the property wasn’t left to them, and then a series of events happen to make her think she really isn’t wanted. Except for the solicitor Dan; he [...]

      Easy to readI like the book. It was easy to read. This was part of a reading binge and might be getting book2 depending on my next read.

    • Danielle says:

      I couldn't get more than a few chapters in. Crude dialogue and sexual innuendo's everywhere.

      HotGreat story, catching. I couldn't stop reading once I started. A bit of mystery, a lot of real life problems and some tame sex made this book a fun read.

    • Lynette Sofras says:

      I can't remember how, why or when I downloaded this book, but when I reached it on my Kindle and began to read it, I was drawn into its cosy bosom from the first chapter. I've never been to Ireland, more's the pity, but immediately felt welcomed into this idyllic and refreshing Kerry setting with its warm and colourful characters.Susanne O'Leary creates some endearing characters, from the scrumdelicious Paudy, the slightly wacky Beata and her enigmatic Russian, Boris, horsey Diana and too-good-t [...]

      Totally fun and entertaining without being at all cheesy! It seems like "fun" equals corny/cheesy in the literary world. Cheesy can be fun at times, there is certainly a place for that - but it's rare to find a 'feel-good' standalone novel sans the cheese. Megan has inherited a property - a wreck of a house in a rural scenic location in Ireland on the sea. The location makes it a 'hot property' and it seems everyone has an interest in buying it. But, Megan must be careful who she trusts because [...]

      Romantic Comedy?I really did not ever get the comedy aspect of this book. It never really made me laugh. I think I smiled once at a comment, but that was it. I've never been divorced, but I can't understand settling for an average relationship after being what the main character went through. A lot of the choices the main character made literally drove me crazy and made no sense. I didn't like her, and I only finished the book because it was so short. It was very predictable, and the romance asp [...]

      3.5 starsI love anything Irish, so this was a no brainer for me when I purchased it. However it has sat on my Kindle for nearly 18 months, and for some reason, i never got around to reading it.It popped up on the front page of my kindle a couple of nights ago so I dug into it - since it was St Patricks' Day and all that!What I loved: I loved the setting, the house on the hill by the ocean. I could just picture it in my mind and I wanted to live there.Megan not giving up her family legacy, and no [...]
