In a word: Meh. I orginally checked this book out because I love the cover art - it's such eye candy! The book itself was kind of sucky, though. The first strike against it was the totally unrealistic relationship between Morgan and her hunky biking tour guide. The second strike was the totally bizarre jaunts into some weird from-the-past fantasy land and the adjoining sub-plot. I don't think that mixing fantasy and reality elements is necessarily a bad thing, but it just didn't work well in this book. The third strike? - I just didn't find anything remarkable about this book. Bland writing, predictable plot - nothing noteworthy to make me recommend this book to anyone. Unless they wanted teen books about Ireland - then...maybe.
