Forced out of his native Ireland, Quinn O'Donnell dreams of striking gold. When a flash flood hits, Quinn is compelled to rescue Guinevere.
Will they realise in time that all that glitters is not gold? Though a most inconvenient attraction forms between them, both remain determined to pursue their dreams whatever the cost.

The characters are a lot of fun - the plot full of interest and twists and turns. This is beautifully read. Zana Bell writes great books and this is a goodie.
The dinner scene where the lady and the poor boy switch roles.
The lilting Irish voice for Quinn - what a lovable character.
Absolutely. And I have come back to it and re-listened to it.
It isn't just the main characters that are so likeable, the other characters are very well drawn to. The imagery is vivid - listening to it was almost like watching a movie. One of those books that leave you feeling satisfied and better for having read it.
