Ian Haven and Halcyon Gilbert haven't seen each other since Hallie's 17th birthday...
...the same day Hallie pledged she would never, ever speak to Ian again as long as she lived.

Hallie Gilbert has had an especially awful year. When her husband of five years left her, Hallie’s 4-year-old daughter, Jenny, essentially stopped speaking. Add to this, she had to sell her Boston apartment to pay her husband’s exorbitant credit card bills. What Hallie needs is an uncomplicated autumn at Colby Cottage, her family’s summer home in Sandwich, NH, where she and Jenny can re-group and figure out what happens next.

But Colby Cottage, located adjacent to the Summerhaven Camp, has not been well-maintained and Hallie finds it in such disrepair, it's almost unlivable. When nearby camp owner, Rory Haven, arranges for his brother, Ian, to handle renovations for Hallie, her plans for an uncomplicated autumn suddenly get a lot more challenging.

I absolutely love to read second chance romances and is exactly what we get in Loving Irish by Katy Regnery, the third book in her The Summerhaven Trio series. And we finally get Ian Haven’s story, which we knew from previous books would be emotional. Though each book is about a different sibling, I would highly suggest reading in order for a better reading experience.

We finally learn what drove Ian down the path he was on and see him heading to recovery. His journey has been heartbreaking, but we can see how hard he is working on redeeming himself. Hallie is looking to start over after her ex left. She has her daughter to think about and her heart to protect.

At seventeen everything seems immensely easier and when things go wrong, completely horrible. When Ian and Hallie went their separate ways, it hurt them. Now Hallie is back and wants nothing to do with Ian, but Ian is determined to make up for his mistakes. Even as Hallie only wants to keep him at arm’s length.

I love the strength of family depicted in this series and how second chances can be redeeming. And Ian with Hallie’s daughter was so sweet. He wanted to be there for both of them. Katy Regnery is an amazing writer who gives us stories that are emotional, captivating and beautiful and Loving Irish was all those things and more.

About Katy Regnery

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013.

Twenty-five books later, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled, New York Times and USA Today Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other standalone novels and novellas.

Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1-4, became a New York Times E-book bestseller.

In 2016, Katy signed a print-only agreement with Spencerhill Press. As a result, her Blueberry Lane paperback books will now be distributed to brick and mortar bookstores all over the United States.

Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.
