Show Me 5 Saturday: The Wild Sight by Lucinda McGary

Alipet813 at That's a Novel Idea has started a new MEME called Show Me Five Saturday. This meme will give each blogger an opportunity to give a brief description of a book they have read or reviewed during the week. It will work like this: Each Saturday you will post the answer to these questions. The number indicates the number of answers you will provide.

1.Book you read and/or reviewed this week : The Wild Sight by Lucinda McGary

2. Words that describe the book: Romance, intrigue

3. Settings where it took place or characters you met:

  • Rylie Powell: an American in Ireland looking for Dermot O'Shea as she believes he is her father who abandoned her and her mother 26 years ago.
  • Donovan: Dermot's son who has the "gift" of clairvoyance and for whom Rylie falls in a big way but what if he really is her half brother?
  • Inspector Colm Lynch who was a new cop when Donovan's mother disappeared 25 years ago. Is he really who he appears to be?

4. Things you liked and/or disliked about it:

  • I loved the setting and the budding sensual romance between the two main characters.
  • The mystery of who really is Rylie's father and why he abandoned them.
  • Also liked the lesser characters a lot; Donovan's father Dermot and his sister Doreen. They really add to the plot as Donovan suspects they know more than they are saying about the day Donovan's mother disappeared.
  • There is an element of the paranormal in this book too that really fit into the story in a big way.

5. Stars or less for your rating?
