Jane is back with the newest book in her Irish mob series, Carson. This book takes place 2 years after the last one, but that’s OK, we get caught up enough in the first chapter to know what happened in those two years, so don’t worry about missing anything.
We start with Father Finn telling Carson about the fact that his dead wife, who everyone thought had died in a car accident, was probably murdered, but Father Finn doesn’t want to go to Keenan with it, because it would turn into war, and Finn works very hard to walk the line between being a member of the Clan and being a Catholic priest. So, he gives Carson just as much information as he can, which really isn’t a lot, just enough to get him started on finding out what he needs to do. This eventually leads to him working on his computer at his wife’s grave on a Friday night, the night before a big Family wedding.
Megan is celebrating Sheena’s hen night with all the McCarthy wives. She’s really happy that her cousin Nolan has found the love of his life, but she’s a little lonely. All her cousins are in happy long term relationships, but she’s alone. There is one guy that she used to really think about, a man of the Clan, but life got in the way and now, for reasons, she feels like she can’t do anything with him, even though she still would really like to. After all, Carson is still getting over Eve’s death. She decides that she’ll go out for a walk, and walks over to Eve’s grave, where she is going to talk to her friend, only Carson is there, and he finds out that she walked there without a guard, which causes all kinds of trouble.
They end up having to be paired together at the wedding, and it kind of leads to another kind of pairing, iff’n you know what I mean. Megan enjoyed herself, but she’s worried about being involved with a man of the Clan and Carson really enjoyed himself, but he’s worried about being involved with Meagan because her cousins will pretty much beat the living hell out of him. They both know that it might not be the smartest idea to hook up with each other, but they also both know that there is no way that they can’t be together.
I’ve liked Megan from the very beginning. She’s funny, sassy, loving, smart alecky, and just a pretty fun person with a huge heart. I would love to get to know her better, because she just seems like fun. I think that she’s wonderful with Breena, and is definitely a brave and bold person who will do what she needs to do to help her family. I’m happy that she is getting her own story and her HEA. She deserves it.
Carson is a good guy. All the men of the Clan are. Good doesn’t necessarily mean on the right side of the law here, because they really aren’t that. I do think that he, and all the men of the Clan, are just as well as good. Again, just and good aren’t necessarily the same thing, and proper justice doesn’t always align with what the law says. He’s a brilliant father, witnessed by how loved Breena is. He’s a definite asset to the Clan. I think he’ll be so good for Megan.
I can’t wait for Lachlan’s book.
Oh, Eve’s story broke my heart, and what we find in her diary was hard.
OK, that’s all for this one. Go check it out! Happy reading!
