Tragedy has struck the Harrigans—Quincy’s beloved sister-in-law Loni is gravely ill and nearing death. Quincy, like his brothers, feels helpless to save her, and the clock is ticking. Then, with perfect timing, a winsome red-haired woman named Ceara O’Ceallaigh mysteriously appears on Quincy’s property and insists that Loni can be cured. Only Quincy, she says, as the sole remaining Harrigan bachelor, can make it happen—by marrying Ceara.
Catherine Anderson plays around with this novel and adds some time travel. A little like a Nora Robert's story where she uses the 'beyond the real, into another dimension' style of story. As I enjoy Nora Roberts when she writes with this sense of fun, so I enjoyed this one by Catherine Anderson. Okay, I love all of Anderson's novels!
Whenever I read her books, I get carried away from the world of work and stress. It is a cosy family oriented read with lots of drama along the way. It's good to catch up with other members of the family and they all certainly pull together in this one. (Quincy is the final brother of the series to become settled down into a family of his own).
Do you need to suspend belief of what is possible - of course. A delightful character that enters this story towards the end - Stormy - certainly is going to push your buttons if you aren't prepared to just take the story as it is revealed. I thought she was a delight and I wish there were going to be more stories about this family just to meet up with her some more.
If you like Catherine's books, I believe you'll like this one. I have finished this and put it back on the shelf. I intend rereading this whole series again all in one go at some time. I know it will be hours of 'lost in a book' time.
