Review
When a relationship with noted ladies' man Matthew O'Brien ruins her career, Laila Riley impulsively breaks things off, but neither expects to end up going to Ireland for Christmas with the entire O'Brien clan. It seems Nell O'Brien is one determined grandmother (as well as a sly matchmaker), and when Laila and Matthew finally confront each other and agree to go, the stage is set for romance—just as Nell had planned. But Nell hadn't counted on meeting in Dublin an old love of her own—something that has her grandchildren speculating, one overprotective son tied up in knots, and Nell, herself, faced with unexpected options. VERDICT Heart-melting, poignant, and romantic, this year's O'Brien family holiday celebration overlays the warm, hectic joy of the season with a dash of conflict and a touch of the Irish. A memorable, multilayered story. Woods (Beach Lane ) divides her time between Colonial Beach, VA, and Key Biscayne, FL. --Kristin Ramsdell (Reviewed October 15, 2011) (Library Journal, vol 136, issue 17, p69)
