Read Dark Witch (The Cousins O'Dwyer Trilogy, #1) Online Free - 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.
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 horseman, 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…

Well, as a Nora Roberts fan, this is going to be really painful to write…
When I found out that the new work of one of my favorite authors of all time was a trilogy placed in the magic green mountains of of Erin (Ireland), I was sooo excited! My favorite trilogy by Nora is “Gallaghers of Ardmore”...

I'm clearly not with the majority on this. I thought this book was boring as hell. I've never struggled so much to get through a Nora Roberts book before in my life, but this took me a week to finish. The beginning was awesome...when we looked back at Sorcha and her children and their life togeth...

This book was a mess, in my opinion. The writing was sloppy, there was barely any plot, and the characters were all flat.
Iona, the female lead, literally says anything and everything she thinks! She has no inner thoughts, no personality of her own. She seems to exist solely to provide exposition...

5 Magickal Stars!
There is just something so enchanting about Nora Roberts' writing. The way she weaves together a story always has me captivated. It'd been awhile since I read one of her books, but nothing had c...

The first book of the cousins O'Dwyer series, Dark Witch, reminded me a lot of two other "firsts" of her trilogies- the Gallaghers of Ardmore, and the Three Sisters Island. If you've read both, you know they both involve "outsiders" coming into a life already in progress for the others, but quick...

I have just finished the book, and I am so sad and disappointed. Nora Roberts has been a favorite author of mine for years and years, but this book was not up to her usual standard. It smacks of being a poor rewrite of her Three Sisters Island trilogy.

From the beginning...

4 stars. Great world-building, weak romance, but still worth the read.
I hesitate to describe this book as a 'romance' novel simply because the book spent little time actually exploring the romance between Iona and Boyle. Sure, there IS a romance in this novel. Sprinkled throughout the book are a...

One word describes this book. WEAK. The characters were weak, the storyline was weak. The book started out GREAT, then boom just fell apart and reading it was like watching paint dry! I've always been a huge fan of the authors trilogies but wow, this book was just a mess. It seemed rushed and jus...

Curling up with a Nora Roberts' novel has the same effect on me as nibbling on a chocolate bar: I go into a state of bliss. This summer I read through all of her series titles and fell in love with her...
