Dear Reader, Those of you who are familiar with my books know that Ireland is one of my favorite places to visit, in real life and in fiction. It’s a country of dramatic cliffs and quiet fields. One of myth and magic and legend. In Jewels of the Sun, I’ve borrowed from some of those myths and created my own legend. It could have happened. I’d like you to meet the Gallaghers of Ardmore: Aidan, Shawn, and Darcy, who run the local pub in this pretty seaside village in the county of Waterford. Not far from the village is a cottage, a place of magic where a lonely American woman comes to explore her roots and her heart. She won’t be alone in the house, for there is another lonely woman in residence. She just happens to be a ghost. With the help of a faerie prince who loved well if not wise, Aidan Gallagher of Ardmore and Jude Frances Murray from Chicago will find their place, and take the first step toward breaking a hundred-year spell. I’d like to take you back to Ireland with me, through the doors of Gallagher’s Pub where the fire’s burning low and the pints are waiting. I have a story to tell you. Nora Roberts

I think maybe I'm reading the wrong books by Nora. This one was just ok...but it didn't wow me at all.
Arghhhh, I just write the review and my computer eat it. Damn!! X(So, to sum it up, Jewels of The Sun is my less favorite of Nora Roberts's books, since its so slow and boring and things get interesting near the end. The characters don't help either. Since the heroine, Jude is too much wallowing in ...
I just couldn't get in to this one. I didn't find a connection with the character and the writing was a bit too flowery for me. Sometimes I just want the story about the characters and not the superfluous. I can't believe I'm saying it, but it was OVER descriptive. And each character had to describe...
