Review:

"Julia In Ireland" by Ann Bridge was the last book in this author's 'Julia Probyn' espionage series. This will be a mystery read of Julia's visit to Ireland with Gerald O'Brien has as asked her to marry her. While Julia is on this vacation, it will be interrupted when she "stumbles upon a plot by an unknown land speculator who, with the unwitting aid of an attractive American woman and an Irish poet, is surreptitiously buying a strip of land along the coast for the purpose of building a huge resort hotel and casino." A investigation will be started and it gets interesting for these two and this will be where I say you must pick up "Julia In Ireland" to see how this author will bring this 'web of intrigue against the background of a remote Irish village, its people, and their customs.' Would I recommend this read? YES! ( )

Book description
While on her last assignment with British Intelligence in Morocco, the widowed Julia Probyn Jamieson meets and is strongly attracted to an Irish country lawyer, Gerald O’Brien, who is travelling with friends of hers. O’Brien has asked Julia to marry him but she delays her decision until he has met her five-year-old son Philip, who is somewhat hard to handle.

Boy and man take to each other, and it becomes clear that Gerald will be an ideal stepfather. On his part, Gerald insists that she come to Ireland to see his modest home and meet his friends and neighbors before she makes up her mind, for his world is far different from the glamorous cosmopolitan one she is accustomed to.

Julia’s quiet vacation is interrupted when she stumbles upon a plot by an unknown land speculator who, with the unwitting aid of an attractive American woman and an Irish poet, is surreptitiously buying a strip of land along the coast for the purpose of building a huge resort hotel and casino. The intrepid Julia is drawn in as a participant when she joins Gerald in his investigation of this devious scheme, which will destroy the wild beauty of the coast and disrupt the peace of the community.

Ann Bridge has woven a web of intrigue against the background of a remote Irish village, its people, and their customs. The unexpected denouement and happy ending will delight the author’s many devoted readers.
