Book Description

8 Mar 2007 Gallaghers of Ardmore (Book 2)
A talented songwriter, Shawn Gallagher spends his days lost in reverie and wonder, oblivious to the wiles of women and the ways of the world. He claims that he's content with his life, but his music tells a different story - one of loneliness and desperate longing. No one understands why Shawn doesn't put his musical gift to profitable use - least of all Brenna O'Toole, a fiercely independent tomboy who has been secretly in love with him for years. But it is only when Shawn gives into the mysteries of magic that he gets the chance to fulfill his destiny as a man and a musician.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 15 Dec 2007
Format:Paperback
When I finished Jewels of the Sun, I loved it so much that I could not imagine the possibility of Nora Roberts writing anything that could compete with it. But, as I was happy to discover, I was wrong. The first book of the trilogy is still my favorite, but Tears of the Moon is a very very close second, and I am on tenterhooks waiting for the third!
Tears of the Moon is much more of an emotional rollercoaster than the first book of the trilogy and, although both feature many of the same characters and are set in the same place, Tears of the Moon tells an very different story. It is a story about people who have known one another all their lives: Shawn Gallagher, a hopeless dreamer, romantic and musician extraordinaire, and Brenna O'Toole, who is entirely practical in every way save an unexplainable obsession with Shawn. It is a tale of childhood love and mature passion, filled with ups and downs that will take your breath away and leave you wanting more. It continued many of the same themes from the first book, but other aspects were refreshingly new. Brenna and Shawn seem like complete opposites that would only end up driving one another crazy. But as the story progressed, Roberts cast her magic and I came to see how they complemented one another. The rapport between Shawn and Brenna was colored both by their feelings for one another as well as a long history of arguments stemming from a sibling-like relationship, and made for a very amusing and absorbing story.

I was very pleased to note that Roberts's ability to hold me captive from the first page to the very last sentence has not diminished, and that her quality and style of writing did not waver as the conclusion approached.

4.0 out of 5 stars Irish/Fairy-tale/Family 10 Oct 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have come to expect alot when I open a book with the name Nora Roberts on it, and after reading this book, my expectations remain the same.
The plot is essentially quite simple. A very nice fairy-tale where Carrick, Prince of the Fairies is helping two reluctant mortals find each other. What makes this book special are the various characters and the way in which the romance proceeds. She's great at DIY. He cooks. There are funny moments, touching moments and some really juicy red hot moments.
I liked it.

4.0 out of 5 stars delightful read 11 Aug 2012
By Cloggie Downunder TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Tears of the Moon is the second of the Ardmore Gallaghers series by Nora Roberts. Shawn Gallagher is content with hs life as the cook at Gallagher's Pub. He has time to work on his music, even if he's not really doing much with it, and wants for nothing more. But apparently Brenna O'Toole, his sister Darcy's best friend and almost like a sister to him, has other ideas. With her flaming locks and petite figure, she's attractive enough, but not his type, yet she's suddenly decided she'd like to satisfy the years-long yen she's had for him. She propositions him, he's resistant, but eventually, he agrees, as long as they vow to remain friends when it's all over. Soon enough, though, each of them discovers they want more. But can the pushy, single-minded Brenna and the dreamy, procrastinating Shawn find common ground? Roberts gives the readers charming characters, snappy dialogue, a great plot with the odd twist and a marvellously emotional climax. A delightful read.

5.0 out of 5 stars this is a british release of an old nora title 29 Nov 2006
Format:Hardcover
just a note to noraholics- if you have read/bought just about all of nora's books, then be aware that this is a re-release and part of a trilogy that was published about 5-6 years ago...it is not a new title

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great story 19 Feb 2007
By RozziD VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In this, the second of the trilogy (beginning with Jewels of the Sun) the focus is on Shawn Gallagher and Brenna O'Toole. We met both characters in the first book and get to know them much better in this one. Shawn is the dreamer of the Gallagher family who runs the kitchen at the family pub in Ardmore. Brenna is the tomboy who can fix anything. Both have know each other from childhood and have been friends and spatted with each other throughout. Brenna now wants more though as she has had a thing for Shawn for many years.

This story follows the couple through friendship to lovers and is intermingled with the 300 year old legend of Carrick, Prince of the fairies and his Lady Gwen. In order to break the spell he wove all that time ago so that he and Gwen can eventually be together forever, three pairs of mortals must fall in love and Carrick is determined to do everything he can to see that happens.

I really enjoyed this story and will be going straight onto the third and final chapter in this trilogy - Heart of the Sea
