Book Review: Dark Witch by Nora Roberts ( #paranormal #romance )

, by Mystee


Book Description

 October 29, 2013
First in the all-new Cousins O’Dwyer Trilogy

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts comes a trilogy about the land we’re drawn to, the family we learn to cherish, and the people we long to love…

With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends.

Ireland.

County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors’ blood and magic have flowed through generations—and where her destiny awaits.

Iona arrives in Ireland with nothing but her Nan’s directions, an unfailingly optimistic attitude, and an innate talent with horses. Not far from the luxurious castle where she is spending a week, she finds her cousins, Branna and Connor O’Dwyer. And since family is family, they invite her into their home and their lives.

When Iona lands a job at the local stables, she meets the owner, Boyle McGrath. Cowboy, pirate, wild tribal horsemen, he’s three of her biggest fantasy weaknesses all in one big, bold package.

Iona realizes that here she can make a home for herself—and live her life as she wants, even if that means falling head over heels for Boyle. But nothing is as it seems. An ancient evil has wound its way around Iona’s family tree and must be defeated. Family and friends will fight with each other and for each other to keep the promise of hope—and love—alive…

Review: Well, this was good and bad I suppose. It wasn't exactly what I expected. It lacked "normal Nora" quality, in a manner of speaking. I love quite a number of her books. But this one, it's like it's an already done story line. I know I've read it, at least in part, somewhere else.
She painted a wonderful description of the country. I love visual detail. It makes me feel like I'm there. But I felt I never got to know her characters like I wanted to, they lacked full development to make you fall in love with them.
Honestly, as much as I hate to say it, unless you're a die hard Nora fan, I'd probably skip over this one.
