  • Most enjoyable

    ****Memories of Wild Rose Bay by Irish author Susanne O’Leary is Book 5 in her Sandy Cove series. This book introduces Doctor Kate O’Roarke who has come to the small village to train with and assist the current doctor. She meets Cormac, the seventh son of a seventh son who legend says has healing hands. Cormac does dispense teas and creams that seem to help in certain situations, but Kate, steeped in her scientific studies, is skeptical of Cormac’s brews and fearful that he might actually be harming his clients. Cormac is equally standoffish but the pull between them is intense. The author has created characters that tease and beg for more layers to be revealed. This story doesn’t end with a cliffhanger exactly, but with the promise that there’s still a lot to uncover. I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy of this book from NetGalley.

    This book is about Kate and her leaving the busy life of the city hospital emergency room. She heads to the country to work more as a GP. There she meets a cast of interesting characters and a new love interest. It was a quick book which I really enjoyed. Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the early copy

  • A beautiful read

    A sweet escape was this story with mysticism and romance A prose which was calm and caring A dash of love and a whole lot of passion Characters contrary but with a deepening connection A story of reality with a dreamy overtone Trust Susanne O'Leary to give me a book which was JUST PERFECT on a lazy rainy afternoon. Took me two hours to read. What a bliss to escape into the delightful locales of Sandy Cove

  • Quick and lighthearted read

    Memories of Wild Rose Bay was a fabulous quick and lighthearted read. Kate O’Rourke was a great character who was strong enough to bend the old-fashioned town into accepting a it’s first female doctor; although begrudgingly. She provided a refreshing take as an easy-going character despite the challenges she faced with a community who were half open-minded and half set in their traditional ways. Although the outcome was predictable, I enjoyed reading this story and found it was a nice book to take along on a weekend trip away since it was such a quick, yet delightful read.

  • An absolutely brilliant read

    Thank you NetGalley and Bookouture for a copy of Memories of Wild Rose Bay in exchange for my honest opinion. This book is an absolute brilliant addition to the Sandy Cove series. It can be read as a stand alone but it’s even better if read in order so as better to understand the family relationships. The stories weave beautifully from the O’Rourke andMcKenna families. Kate O’Rourke has left her job at in the A & E department at St. Vincent’s - Dublin’s largest hospital - to continue to train as an Assistant GP in Sandy Cove for 6 months. County Kerry is the home of the O’Rourke clan so she’s excited to go, especially since the passing of her da and she hopes to feel close to him there. Rounding out the immediate group are Dr. Pat O’Dwyer who will be semi-retiring while training Kate. His son Mick is a stage actor. His nurse/receptionist Bridget and her husband John. Cormac O’Shea is the 7th son of a 7th son, so legend says that he possesses special powers. He’s a herbalist, a natural healer and his ways clash with Kate’s. Patients in the small town are cancelling appointments because Kate is young, female, from Dublin, so she can’t possibly be qualified to treat them. They prefer to put their faith in “old” remedies, which fuels her clashes with Cormac. Kate quickly fits in and soon realizes that she might not want to leave after her 6 months are up. A wonderful read that I hated to see end. I can’t wait for the next book in the series. Worth so much more than 5 stars!
