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. In fact, if there is one thing that I liked better about Tears of the Moon than Jewels of the Sun, it was the very last page. I can't tell you what it is or I'd ruin it, but all I can say is *SIGH*. Nora Roberts is a fantastic storyteller who will always have a fan in me!!!! and if you missed Tino Georgiou's--The Fates--I strongly recommend reading it.

TOTM is Nora Roberts second book in a triology, set in a lovely Irish town. We meet Shawn Callagher and the tomboish Brenna O'Toole sparring with each other, struggling with their feelings and fencing against the power of love. Interwoven is the story with the legend of Garric, Prince of the Fairies and Lady Gwen. For 300 Years he has waited for three pairs of lovers to undo his curse on Lady Gwen. Both Garric and Lady Gwen have do a lott of influencing the childhoodfriends to see their deeper feelings for each other...

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.

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.

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

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

This was a purchase for someone and I have never read it, but it arrived on time and was at a good price so I don't want the sellers to loose out on a good rating for something I have not read, although the person who has, loves it!

I love this author and I have very nearly read all the books not just in this series but all series written.

She is an excellent author, I love the story lines, and I love that everything is in 3's I love a series of books and with a triology you have that without having to many books to read to finish off a series.

Perfect thing to take away with you and read by the pool!

A really wonderfully written love story that touches the heart. The characters feel real with a liberal touch of irish blarney and once you start this book you will not want to put it down. I was captivated by the way Nora Roberts describes her faerie king and the relationship with humans. Great book as ever can't wait to start the next one!!
