Irish Tiger: A Nuala Anne McGrail Novel

Andrew M. Greeley, Author . Forge $24.95 (292p) ISBN 978-0-7653-4237-9

Nuala Anne McGrail, fey Irish singer and part-time psychic problem solver, takes on another mission of the heart in her 11th adventure (after 2007's Irish Linen ). Maria Angelica Sabattini Connors is a widow and real estate whiz whose Elegant Homes software helps users create their own designer homes. John “Jack” Patrick Donlan is a wealthy widower and investment broker who meets Maria when they become business associates. They fall in love and marry despite some nasty backlash from Jack's daughters and his dead wife's family, who believe rumors that Maria sleeps around to advance her business. Maria's unsavory mob-connected brothers, a sneaky businessman and a creepy politician lurk in the background. Maria and Jack turn for help to Nuala and her husband, who must find a way through in their inimitable and indomitable fashion. Greeley's slightly patchy narrative, laced with his trademark Irish humor, serves as a reminder that faith and courage can make marriage succeed at any age and against any adversity. (Feb.)
