Dating Matthew O’Brien-a playboy and a younger man-cost Laila Riley her career and her parents’ respect. A high price, even for love-and when Laila decides it was just a fling, she breaks it off, despite Matthew’s objections.

It’s a great time to get away from it all, but Laila has reservations about joining the O’Briens for a Dublin holiday. Matthew’s bound to be there, and she’s far from immune. What if she can’t resist temptation?

Meanwhile, the O’Briens are in an uproar over matriarch Nell’s unexpected romance with an old flame. Will she follow her heart despite the risks? And will Laila discover that some risks are actually once-in-a-lifetime opportunities?

About the Author


With her roots firmly planted in the South, Sherryl Woods has written many of her more than 100 books in that distinctive setting, whether her home state of Virginia, her adopted state, Florida, or her much-adored South Carolina. She's also especially partial to small towns, wherever they may be. A member of Novelists Inc., Sisters in Crime and Romance Writers of America, Sherryl divides her time between her childhood summer home overlooking the Potomac River in Colonial Beach, Virginia, and her oceanfront home, with its lighthouse view, in Key Biscayne, Florida. --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

My Review

This is the third book in the Sherryl Woods Chesapeake Shores series that I have read.  This is a great romance series.  Woods is a great writer and her stories are very addictive!  Very hard to put down!

In this volume, the entire O'Brien clan heads off the Dublin, Ireland for the Christmas holiday season.  Love is in the air for the young Matthew O'Brien and his lady of choice Laila Riley.  Laila is still concerned about their age difference but perhaps with the magic of Ireland and the Christmas season she will finally see him for the mature man he has grown into.

And love is also in the air for the matriarch of the O'Brien family, Nell.  An old flame is also widowed and still looking at her with love in his eyes in Dublin.  So you can always predict what will happen in romances but it is always a nice journey to get there.

Excellent Christmas read!
