My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A great read about culture. Stella is a party planner trying to organise a St Patrick’s Day Ball. She tries her best to arrange it despite the customers picky pacularities. But on meeting her stepson in the garden, Stella is infused with new ideas that go against everything her boss and customer wants. But at the end of the day is honour better than coin?
A great read. Well developed plot with twists and turns that I just couldn’t put down. Well developed characters like Stella standing up for herself but kind underneath or Padraig tough on the outside but caring on the inside. Great cast of supporting characters like the sweet and motherly Moira or the fun friend Kerry. A great antagonist in Rachel, perfectly done and not too much.
I loved the visual detail throughout the novel like the sense of the town with cobbled streets and small shops and everyone knowing each other. Or the garden with its green grass and the sunlight and pretty magnolia flowers. Or the scenes with the fountain with its relaxing water for a sense of calm wonderfully written. Or the scenes in moiras House with the use of the senses with taste and smell so strong its as if you’re actually there loved the sense of the novel starting straight in with the action, captivating the reader from the start. I also loved the use of Irish culture, with its food and traditions given the respext and love they deserve. Over a, a great read and I would give it five stars
