    17. This was a short and quick read about the Callaways. Emma, Burke and Ian are sent to Ireland by their grandmother to experience where she grew up. The book skips around between the three which was a little confusing for me. You get to learn more about Emma and her husband Max, Burke and his wife Maddie and then the brilliant cousin Ian. It ends on a bit of a cliffhanger. I will probably read the next book, just because I'm curious to read Ian's story. I do prefer one story at a time instead of t [...]

    20. I actually finished this book sometime last weekI received an ARC copy. I read it in a few days. I have been to Ireland before, so it was nice visiting that country again. The story was good and beautiful. My only wish was that more of the trip was mentioned instead of just the first day or two. There's so much more there that could've happened in just a day or two. I do realize it was a novella, but I still wish that. :) However, I am glad we got to be reunited with Max and Emma again. I love t [...]
