Summary:

Sometimes leaving home is the only way to find where you truly belong.

Carlene Rivers is many things. Dutiful, reliable, kind. Lucky? Not so much. At thirty, she's living a stifling existence in Cleveland, Ohio. Then one day, Carlene buys a raffle ticket. The prize: a pub on the west coast of Ireland. Carlene is stunned when she wins. Everyone else is stunned when she actually goes.

As soon as she arrives in Ballybeog, Carlene is smitten, not just by the town's beguiling mix of ancient and modern but by the welcome she receives. In this small town near Galway Bay, strife is no stranger, strangers are family, and no one is ever too busy for a cup of tea or a pint. And though her new job presents challenges'from a meddling neighbor to the pub's colorful regulars'there are compensations galore. Like the freedom to sing, joke, and tell stories and, in doing so, find her own voice. And in her flirtation with Ronan McBride, the pub's charming, reckless former owner, she just may find the freedom to follow where impulse leads and trust her heart'and her luck'for the very first time.

'Superb storytelling and fun and fantastic characters make this a story not soon forgotten.''Romantic Times

    This was a fun read, I loved the whole cast of characters. The author makes you wait for "it"., and it is worth the wait. I could have lived with a few less F bombs.

    Hilarious and heartwarming. Intriguing, suspenseful, and transporting. If you've been to Ireland, you'll appreciate the American perspective Carter brings to the country. If you haven't been there yet, read this book!
