“I miss you, Shay.”
Chancey Bo Clearwater is a cowboy through and through. He spends his days finding work on whatever ranch will take him and his nights at the pool hall. He’s always done what needed doing and never thought much about what he wanted. ’Til that drunken night with Seamus.
A world of problems now stand between Seamus and Chancey exploring what might have been, the least of which being the Atlantic Ocean. On one side, there’s Chancey’s daughter who mood swings from angel to demon in two seconds flat; on the other, there’s the new lodger, hogging Shay’s telly and his cornflakes, and making private Skype time hard to come by.
Is this relationship doomed before it ever begins? Or can a surprise announcement from Seamus’s brother be enough to help the two find their second chance?
Where the Grass is Greener is book two of 'Seeds of Tyrone' and features characters from Leaving Flowers , but can be read independently.
I love when I read an author for the first time and find I am truly enamored with the work. Debbie McGowan and Raine O’Tierney’s book Where the Grass is Greener was a superb read~ delivering a tale of patience, love and trust.
Chancey and Seamus lived in opposite ends of the world both physically and emotionally. What McGowan and O’Tierney created was a melding of souls in the face of self-doubt.
The authors’ characterization catapulted me to the hard-working farms of the mid-west and the fields of Ireland. The dialogue was witty and carefully thought out without being cliché.
Secondary character Dee brought life to the story as the angst of a teenager reverberated throughout and added significant depth.
The travels of Chance and Seamus were not looked at lightly but the complexities of a long-distance relationship and all its trappings were judiciously delivered, not making light of any situation. The humor infused by the authors’ style of writing placed a smile on my face and a kick in my step.
Where the Grass is Greener is a book to not be missed and two authors I will surely pick up again.
