About the Author
Boston, Massachusetts native Pat McDermott writes romantic action/adventure stories set in Ireland. The Glimmer Books, Glancing Through the Glimmer, Autumn Glimmer, and A Pot of Glimmer, are young adult paranormal adventures starring Ireland’s mischievous fairies and a royal family that might have been. The Glimmer Books are “prequels” to her popular Band of Roses Trilogy: A Band of Roses, Fiery Roses, and Salty Roses. Her contemporary romance, The Rosewood Whistle, features Ireland’s music and myths. Unholy Crossing is her first ghost story. Pat’s favorite non-writing activities include cooking, hiking, reading, and traveling, especially to Ireland. She lives and writes in New Hampshire, USA.

This is a sweet story of middle-aged romance. Ms. McDermott does a wonderful job of describing the west coast of Ireland, and her dialogue is perfect. She's obviously well-versed in the dialect and idioms of the Irish, and it is a delight to read.
The title comes from the whistles that Ben plays. This book is full of Irish music; each chapter is titled with a different song. As a lover of Irish music, I really enjoyed this part of the book also.
A quick read and a nice romance.
I have visited Ireland twice, but never did make it to Westport. Now I feel as though I have been there. Her descriptions make both the characters and the places they visit come alive. During their trip to Dublin, a city I have seen, I was brought back to the glorious time that I shopped on Grafton Street and walked in St. Stephen's Green.
Congratulations to Ms. McDermott for yet another wonderful, exciting read that I found next to impossible to put down once I picked it up! Thank you for sharing your extraordinary talent with the world!
I really connected to these believable characters and found myself thinking about them for the duration of the book until I could finish it. I thoroughly enjoyed the musical aspect of the story and it was obvious to me that not only did the author do her research on the traditional music of the Irish people, but she also had an actual love for the music itself. I am looking forward to reading the next book, which I have already downloaded, by Pat McDermott. Loved the characters, including the lesser ones, and loved the story.
