The neighborhood was old, neither stylish nor rundown, but comfortable, with narrow lots and neatly kept front yards. Many of the houses had porches, but Jon’s had been enclosed years before, giving. the house the appearance of hovering over the street. The aluminum siding was a fading colonial blue; the shutters were long gone, and the roof had been patched with no thought to matching shingles. There was little to set the house apart from its neighbors except that the last person to remodel it had possessed minimal skill and no talent.

It is the story of three sisters, descended from Irish immigrants. The sisters have a good relationship, although have gone through some troubles - each one with her own personal demons to face, and resolve, in the story. I also liked the 100 year old mystery which was a secondary story to the main story.

Once a struggling community of Irish immigrants, Lake Erie's Whiskey Island has a past as colorful as the patrons who frequent the Whiskey Island Saloon. A local gathering place for generations, the saloon is now run by the Donaghue sisters, whose lives and hearts have been shaped by family tragedy and a haunting mystery

Whiskey Island - Emilie Richards. Rooney abandoned the family and the Whiskey Island saloon. There had been "Rooney sightings" over the years, but nothing concrete. Ex-priest Niccolo is asked by the parish priest to read the journals of Father Sweeney - and turns out that one the parishioners was the sisters' ancestor - and may have been involved in the mystery of a tycoon's sudden disappearance.

I picked this up on a lark from the clearance rack of my local used book store. I had heard of this author but never read any of her work and thought I would give it a try for $1 -- plus the cover was interesting.

What a pleasant surprise ! I read a lot (maybe 100 or so books a year) and like to intersperse light reading along with some of the heavier, more complex literature in my reading stack. I picked this up when in the mood for something easier to read and was pleasantly surprised. I have read Danielle Steel (couldn't stand more than one) and enjoy Nora Roberts but find her very formulistic and know exactly what is going to happen before it happens. This book was like a breath of fresh air.

The setting is Cleveland, Ohio and there are two stories interwoven with each other. The story of three sisters, of Irish descent, who own and run The Whiskey Island Saloon is interrupted with flashbacks to what happened to Irish immigrants living in that same geographic area approximately 100 years ago. The device worked well for me and I really liked both stories equally and how they came together at the end of the book.

While more in the category of a beach read, for its genre, it's definitely a 5 star book in my mind. It caught my attention at the beginning and held it to the end with a final twist that I didn't foresee. Even though it was 500 pages, I enjoyed every minute of the time I spent reading it.

Will definitely be picking up the sequel and recommending to friends.

Added on 2/9/2011: I had given my copy away when I finished but still couldn't get it out of my mind as one of the better books I had read -- bought it for my Kindle so that I can re-read it (nothing like buying the same book twice!).

I love books by Emilie Richards, however, this is not one of my favorites. It starts out very slow, and I was about a third through the book and was about to give up on it, when it picked up. The story itself was good, but being so slow took away from it. I even had to skip over parts.It jumps back and forth between time eras which was confusing. I read Iron Lace and it's sequel Rising Tides and just loved them both. But I won't read the sequel to this one. I didn't care for these characters enough to want to know how it all ended. But I do plan to look into some other Emilie Richards books.

I've recently discovered Emilie Richards and love her work.

Whiskey Island is a complex story weaving two time frames, one in the 1880's and the other in 2000. The two story lines are linked by the Irish immigrants who first settled in Cleveland, Ohio and eventually prospered there. The juxtaposition of the old and new is stark, as it is meant to be. Both sets of characters are beautifully drawn, complex, flawed people.

This book will remain one of my favorites for a long time.

As an author, Emilie is in the same class as Nora Roberts, Mary Baloch and Stephanie Laurens.

One of my favourite authors, Diane Chamberlain, once commented that Emilie Richards wrote the same kind of books as hers, which prompted me to give one a try. I liked this book very much. It is the story of three sisters, descended from Irish immigrants. The sisters have a good relationship, although have gone through some troubles - each one with her own personal demons to face, and resolve, in the story. I also liked the 100 year old mystery which was a secondary story to the main story. I will definitely read other books by this author.

I have now read all of the Shenandoah Album books and both Whiskey Island and The Parting Glass. I truly enjoy the writing of this author. Perhaps I'm just getting too old for all the violence and sex in most books these days. Her books are extremely well written, have excellent story lines, give you historical data you may not have know, and upstanding characters who possess wit, perseverance, and courage. I plan on reading more of her books.

I liked this book. It was well written and had a good story. Really two stories, one from the past and one in the present that the author brought together.

This was amazing. It is a story of real people. Some live honestly, some not. There are many plots going on in this story. It was hard to put down. I kept going back to it every chance I got. Some of the personal stuff is a bit too detailed for my taste, but it is well written.
I started this book and at first thought it was dull, but the more I got into it, it just got better and better. I went to a used book store and found the sequal. I had a lot of problems with the main characters name "Niccola," it was awkward, but after awhile I just started calling him Nick.
