Shake well and sip to savor.
This is the first story I have read in this series and would love to someday go back and read them all, the Malloy Family is full of interesting characters that's for sure.
In this story Ethan Malloy is still living a lonely life after loosing his wife 2 years prior, he is empty and just wants to be alone until a feisty red headed sweet women shows him what he's missing. I loved these characters, I felt for Ethan from the beginning and wanted him happy. Fiona is such a sweet, funny and loose mouthed women who's had a hard time in life with nowhere or noone to call home. I love that the author put some intrigue in this story along with a sweet and tad bit sexy. Loved how the family rallies together and want them all as happy as the are. Between their first kiss and their I do's I loved these characters although the story is on the shorter side I think it was just enough to warm your heart. 4 stars
