Have you ever wondered what happens in Ireland?

When Australian, Kate Barrow, meets a handsome Irishman in a Dublin bar, she has no idea that he is about to turn her world upside-down and inside-out.

In Ireland to take on a position on a thoroughbred stud, Kate is shocked when her manager-in-co reveals himself to be the same man she’d met in Dublin.

Jack is drawn to Kate. The problem is, she won’t have him. But Jack has always loved a challenge and the intriguing woman from Oz is one he cannot resist.

Harbouring the sting of another man’s betrayal, Kate is certain she wants nothing to do with love and nothing to do with Jack O’Reilly. But when naked torsos, Mother Nature and dysfunctional umbrellas start plotting against her resolve, she realizes the charms of an Irishman are going to be hard to resist.

***#NerdGirlJulie’s  Review***
What Happens in Ireland is a debut novel by a young author in Australia. It is a leisurely paced book that charming and fun.

The plot is to the point, but it isn’t rushed. The characters and their relationship are well developed. The author takes her time portraying them as individuals and as a new couple. They are likable and realistic. Kate is spunky and independent. Jack is chivalrous and takes his time with Kate as she battles ghosts of boyfriends past. Refreshingly, Jack is not a billionaire! Thankfully, when co-worker/friend, Jenny, tells Kate that, “sometimes it’s nice to let someone care about ye…”, she takes it to heart and lets Jack in to hers.

The banter between the characters is deliciously flirty and fun. Although, I must admit, I did get tired of the use of “ye” by the Irish characters. I would have loved more translation of the Gaelic phrases that were thrown into the conversations. The story is primarily about the chase of the their relationship not the consummation per se. The sex scenes are delicately approached–described without being graphic.

This delightful story will appeal to romance readers. It is evident that we will be seeing more good reads from new author, Whitney K.E.
