Summary

Millions of listeners have fallen in love with Ava's bestselling books...come join the family.

International bestselling author Ava Miles kicks off her new series with an irreverent hero, two well-intentioned matchmakers, and a heroine as beautiful as a wild Irish rose.

Trevor Merriam doesn’t like being ordered around by his older brother, much less to a sleepy Irish village to complete a business deal for their family company.

Worse: the owner of the land he needs to buy doesn’t want him there. In fact, Becca O’Neill loathes him so much that she won’t even serve him the award-winning scones her famed Wild Irish Rose Bed and Breakfast is known for.

Even worse than that (and not getting scones is bad in Trevor’s book): Becca has an ornery cat, a mischievous Irish setter, and a famous ghost all intent on making sure he fails. Then there’s the woman herself. If she weren’t so indignant about his business offer, they might have a good romance budding.

Worst of all: his Uncle Arthur and Aunt Clara Hale show up from Dare Valley hoping to help him get hitched - not exactly the help he was looking for. 

How in the world is he going to make this deal with his heart - and his dignity - staying intact?

Good story ...but

I have lived all Ava Miles’ books and was hooked on the Dare Valley series. This story doesn’t disappoint but the narrator just detracted from the story and was irritating to listen to. She managed to turn the heroine from a strong woman into a weak individual. I’ll continue the series - but I’ll buy the book as could not listen to the same narrator again

A sweet trip to Ireland

This story touched me deeply because I dealt with agoraphobia for 25 years. I felt every emotion that Becca felt and counted every step with her. I loved seeing the Merriams all together in the story. All in all, a very enjoyable listen.

Laughed out loud more than once!

The story pulls the reader in immediately. The characters are genuinely believable. I cried, chuckled, LOL and fell in love. My first book by Ava Miles, but it will not be the last

A great story

Beautifully written & read! Ava, you described Ireland perfectly, as I’ve been all over and I love it there.. I loved all the different dynamics of the story, it actually taught me something that I did not fully understand, thanks. I’m excited & already just started the second book, looking forward to the rest & the story of each family member & Learning more about there character. Thank you CG

Extremely enjoyable!

I find that most times you have an understanding on how the ending is going to happen. I really like this book one of the series, because it kept giving you twists and turns. I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

Story good. Narration awful

The story was good but the narration was so bad it was distracting. So bad, that I almost turned it off half way in. It was as if the narrator forgot that the main character was supposed to be Irish most of the time. And all the male characters sounded the EXACT same so you could never understand who was taking. So disappointing. I’m a frequent audible listener and have never felt so strongly about a book to write a review.

I really enjoyed this book

This book is right up the romance path to a great and compelling series. I can hardly wait to read the rest of the series.

Em Eldridge tells the story in a way that really brings you inside the book. She reads as if she wasn’t reading words but relating reality.

nice genuinely compassionate around a gritty topic

to portray such a tough issue so compassionately and raise awareness of some of the issues faced by those struggling with it so well and to ensure the characters are fully engaged, well done and thank you.
