review 1: An American girl Carleen wins an Irish pub. The previous owner had lost it in a poker game. When she arrives in the small town of Ballybeck she is met by Ronan, the former owner, who takes a liking to her right away. She finds the pub full of customers, and the disgruntled neighbour who wanted to get it to turn into a tanning spa. She learns to pull a pint and enjoys the summer and fall seasons, flirting with Ronan and enduring pranks played on her. All ends well.
review 2: Carlene Rivers considered herself the unluckiest woman in Dublin, Ohio, if not in the entire world. That changed when she bought a lottery ticket at a fair and won a bar in a remote Irish village not too far from Gwalway Bay. She's not so sure her luck has completely changed when she
... morerealizes that the townfolk aren't all thrilled to have a Yank running their beloved tavern. She has to deal with a cast of characters who are her regulars; Ronan,a gorgeous gambler who keeps disappearing; a neigbor who does everything he can to take the bar away from her and turn it into a tanning salon, and a series of incidents that would run most people off to the states. It's a light, enjoyable read that made me laugh. Or as the Irish would say, it's a bit of "craic" (fun). less

I liked this book. I had a real Irish list to the dialogue and a good feel to the Irish culture.
Even 4.5. Now I want to run away to Ireland and own a pub. What fun!
Fun, romantic read. Made me want to win a pub and move to Ireland!
