When a sweet and sassy baker meets the new Irishman in town, things start to sizzle...
Quinn O'Neill gave up being a professional rugby player to help his mam after his dad died, and now she's gone too. All that's left for him in Dublin? Four younger brothers, and elusive dreams to explore. Then he finds a journal revealing family secrets, and heads to Northern California wine country, where his mam grew up.
That's when Quinn meets her...
Lilly Parker. She's the baker at the B&B, an amazing gazelle of a woman. Blonde. Curvy. With high cheekbones that give her the look of an old-fashioned pin-up with a naughty side. She's wearing a pink and black apron that reads Life is Short--Lick the Bowl, and all Quinn can imagine is them: her, wearing nothing but that apron, and him, licking and savoring.
The more time they spend together, the more Quinn believes Lilly's the one. Only she's headed to Miami in a week's time to pursue her own dream, and he has a decision to make.
Does he go back to Dublin and his rugby career? Or does he make a home in the enchanted valley town, start his life fresh, and see if love's enough to make Lilly his forever?
Virna DePaul's latest novel leaves a lasting impres sion.
What Love Can Do is a story of hope in times of hopeless. The descriptions of the beautiful scenery, the bonds of the O'Neill family and the resilience in the face of tragedy combined to make Virna DePaul's latest novel one that leaves a lasting impression. What Love can do is Quinn's quest for answers after discovering a long withheld secret after his mother's death. In order to do so he leaves Ireland and makes his way to his mother's birth place in California. In a foreign land with nowhere to set down roots he meets Lillian who oversees the local B & B. Lillian wants a chance to spread her wings outside of Forestville and pursue her dream of being a chef. But one look, one touch and Quinn makes her crave things she never thought possible. I received an ARC of What Love Can Do in exchange for an honest review. I was fascinated by Quinn. His decisions to leave behind his home and family to learn more about his mom's past took courage. The romance between he and Lillian move fast but was also a poignant part of this story. This was a beautiful beginning to the O'Neill family saga.
