Not Terry's usual type of story, which he openly admits. He has gone for light romance in this story and as usual with anything Terry puts to print, he does it well.
Cooper, at his grandfather's wish, takes his ashes back to Ireland, a place his grandfather has not returned to since he came to America as a young man. He refused to return for any reason. No one knows why he never went back and this is a mystery that Cooper hopes to discover along with finding the perfect spot to spread his ashes.
Along the way though, Cooper runs into an out of work actor who seems to attach himself a little too strongly (there are given reasons for this), a beautifully mysterious woman who keeps popping up in the same spots Cooper happens to be in................and................. could there be a leprechaun involved?
A good story with a little mystery, a little romance, a bit of humor - all combined into a delightful reading mix.
I always enjoy a book where you can just hear the brogue coming off the pages!
