001(13)

Jenny seemed to have everything.

Fearless and talented in the saddle. Brilliantly distinguished in the boardroom. Beautiful and sensational in the bedroom. She was still unfulfilled, searching. Why?

Her handsome, doting husband, Dr. Ken McKevitt, knew the answer. Devastated by his failure, consumed with intense possessive love, he tried desperately to hold on to her.

Garry Wren, a stunning young racehorse trainer had just ‘arrived’ in the picturesque Dream Valley, an idyllic location for his new stables.

Fate played its devastating hand in locking all three together in an intriguing and turbulent saga, finding Jenny her elusive fulfilment, and her husband, his long sought peace of mind.

The reward was great, but the cost was even greater.

A romantic suspense mystery of adventure, passion and intrigue.

A Story to Fascinate and Captivate

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
For us lovers of romantic novels, ‘Dream Valley’ – The Price of Paradise – is our nirvana.
We love a really strong story-line – this is definitely one; the plots and sub-plots are woven and blended in a beautiful flow of mystery and intrigue.
We long for unique characters – this saga is adorned by extraordinary and loveable people that capture the imagination and leave a lasting impression.
We look for excitement, adventure, suspense, drama, hot sensual passion, and we desire to be touched and inspired with empathy and emotion – this novel has it all and had me fascinated and captivated from the first chapter to its emotional conclusion, leaving me bewildered and longing for much more of this riveting entertainment.Paddy Cummins has proved in all his novels to be a master story-teller. His construction, narration, dialogue, descriptions, and sex scenes – steamy but sensitive – are all vital ingredients that embellish this delicious feast. He never fails to satisfy our fictional appetites, leaving a beautiful after-taste, and a yearning for much more of the same.

‘Dream Valley,’ in my opinion, deserves to be crowned with the accolade ‘Read of the Year’ and to help it on its way I’m awarding it, with acclamation, a richly deserved Five Stars.

It is the first step on an incredible journey that would lead him to Gillian Johnson, and change their lives forever.
Two years of adventure, excitement, ecstasy, passion, turmoil and pain would follow, but his cherished dream and Gillian’s true love are the powerful strengths that bring them through.
A beautiful romantic adventure packed with suspense, mystery and intrigue.

I recommend to anyone who enjoys a sweet romance with a real feel of the Irish countryside.
Reading this book was like wrapping myself in a soft over-sized blanket with a mug of cocoa on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
The story follows a young man’s determination to hang on to his horse and his dreams of one day being the owner of a successful stud yard. Along the way he finds love, support from surprising places and discovers a little of his heritage.
A heart warming, relaxing read.

Green Lodge is my first Paddy Cummins novel but certainly won’t be my last.
It’s a tale of love and romance, adventure, family dynamics, celebrations and joy but also greed and hidden secrets that threaten to destroy the future happiness of certain people.

Ricky Barker is a poor stable lad who has dreams and aspirations of one day owning his own stud farm. His boss is wealthy farmer and landowner Sam McArdy.
Janet Johnson is a successful business woman in the bloodstock breeding industry but is cold, calculating and ruthless when crossed. She has little time or respect for her daughter, Gillian.

This is a very entertaining, well written and enjoyable read that will keep you enthralled from the very beginning to the surprise at the end.
Happy reading everyone!!!

I read one of Paddy’s other books so thought I would give this one a try too. Loved it and certainly did not want to put it down. A gentle story with a hint of mystery and a sweet tender romance or two with a bit of steamy sex thrown in for good measure.

an unexpected treat
This review is from: Green Lodge (Kindle Edition)
I was in Malta and librarian Ken introduced me to Paddy’s guide to Malta. ‘This is also a Paddy Cummings book’, Ken added as he passed me Green Lodge as well. I thanked Ken and promised to return both asap, not really expecting to read Green Lodge, but not wishing to appear rude. But once in my hotel room curiosity got the better of me and I randomly opened a page.
It was a gentle read, yet enough interesting twists and turns that I could not put it down.(well I did to go to dinner etc). The final part of the jigsaw was kept almost to the last page, and I found myself wondering at the care kept for the equine blood line, yet thrown haphazardly away for the horse breeders own offspring.
For someone who knows nothing about horses, there was enough detail to learn a little, but never to bore. Thanks for quite a few hours happy reading. Josephine Kelly, author ‘From Lindos with Love’.

This is really good read with an interesting narrative. The nonstandard punctuation for dialogue was a bit disconcerting; and the Janet character was so shrill and her machinations so annoying that I *almost* stopped reading, but I’m really glad I finished.

The plot gets better and better, and the threads unravel and are rewoven in an unexpected and satisfying way.

I would recommend this book.

I thought this was a beautiful romantic story about Ricky Barker who receives his dream horse Then he meets his dream girl as well and everything seems wonderful until the previous owner of the horse wants her back. Ricky is a very likable character that makes you want to keep reading and the supporting characters make the story very interesting. There is also a really interesting plot which leaves you guessing and wondering and then with a surprise at the end. It is well written. A great read.

It's a Long Way to Malta - Paddy Cummins_FInal_highres
Malta is a feast to the eye and a tug on the heart. Pastel coloured rocks, dry stone walls, little farms of greenery, cute little inlets with multicoloured fishing boats, delightful baroque architecture, magnificent church domes, a perfect climate, a leisurely pace of life, charming people, all embraced by a warm blue Mediterranean.
It has become my colour postcard, but now I must share it with two million other visitors who come each year, lucky like me, to have discovered this little Heaven.

If you have ever been to Malta or are planning a trip there, this is a must read. It is Malta through the eyes of an Irishman who has visited there every year for the past 10 years. Paddy Cummins has, in the words of X factor judges “nailed it” when he describes the island and the people – I found myself nodding away and agreeing with him totally. His lighthearted descriptions of the British tourists also had me in total agreement – he really is a people watcher of the first order!

Whilst I have been to many of the places he has mentioned in his book he talks about a whole host of places I haven’t visited yet and now I am eager to go again and do more exploring, encouraged by his obvious love of his “home from home”. I noted, after a bit of googling that he must have renamed the hotel he stayed in (probably to keep it a hidden treasure), but from his description of it I am pretty sure I know which one it is! I am now inspired by this book and can understand now why so many elderly people choose to winter there for three months at a time. Hopefully, God willing, in a few years time I will be able to do the same and yes I will take my own mug to the hotel with me!

I visited Malta for the first time in January, got the Kindle version on this book. However I didn’t read it until I returned. What a great read, it is brilliant and so true. We went on an all inclusive and stayed at Mallieha Bay Hotel. His observation of the people on this type of holiday was spot on, so true. Our hotel was very good I have to say, and the area perfect or us for walking. This book made me laugh out loud, just brilliant.

This brief book is a total joy. I took it with me on a recent visit to Malta and found the content invaluable. It gives just the right amount of information on the people and the place to fire your interest, and delivers the information with humour and personal insights. I found myself quoting this book to the friends I was on holiday with and actually organising a visit to the new Maltese National Aquarium on the basis of it.

005-7
A novel about life in Ireland fifty years ago. A memoir of growing up in Ireland three generations ago. A charming glimpse of life in the old Ireland of the forties and fifties.
THE STORY
Molly resisted the move for as long as she could. When she finally agreed to leave the comfort and convenience of city life, take her five children to the hardship of life in a little thatched homestead on the edge of a bog, and endure the trials and tribulations of caring for a cantankerous old mother-in-law, she often painfully regretted her mistake.
Isolated in a desolate old shack by a railway line, at the end of a long lane, with only the passing trains and the birds of the bog to break the silence, was no place for a young family, and to survive, she had to call on all her powers of patience, wit and creativity.
Fate, and her own unflinching determination, finally came to her rescue, and she emerged with her dignity intact, her spirit restored, wiser and better prepared for the bright future she so longed for herself, her husband, and her children.

This is the true story of Molly in the primitive Ireland of the fifties. It is also my story. How?
Molly was my mother.

This review is from: Yoke the Pony (Kindle Edition)
A charming, delightful story following one family’s joys and trials living on a smallholding in Ireland, in the 1950’s.
Astute and stoical Molly is uprooted from civilized city life to live in a thatched house on the edge of a bog, next to a railway line. The health of her cantankerous, old mother-in-law is failing, so the family have had to up sticks and go to live with her.
Slowly, over the following months, warm and generous-hearted neighbours help the family accumulate pony, trap, hens, etc., to make things easier on the new,young family in their midst.
The vivid and evocative prose conjures up a simplistic way of living that is now gone forever but, thankfully, is lovingly and accurately recorded here by the author. Through it all, the beautiful Irish brogue can be heard singing off the pages, and the warmth and generosity of these lovely people stayed with me long after I finished this book. I’m glad to have had the privilege of knowing them a little, for a short time.

What a lovely memoir of what it was like growing up in Ireland in the early 50’s. Clearly shining through was a strong sense of family and doing what was right. Selfless acts of kindness and generosity was simply a way of country life with both family and community. This one was vividly depicted with care. Paddy made sure he got it right. ‘His’ story comes through on these pages realistically and was penned with a great eye for rich detail. An enjoyable read.

REVIEWS.
“This is a superb read and a story that will remain with you forever. Paddy Cummins captures so many moods in his telling of this tragedy, you feel you are there with the central characters. And because it’s relating to a true story, it’s even more poignant. You’ll find it difficult not to cry at certain parts.
It’s true that at times, the sea shows no mercy; the tension is built up so well here that you won’t know until the time is right whether or not the sea needs more souls. This is a book and a story, which will travel and will be read and told when we are long gone”.
Damien Tiernan. RTE. Irish Television. Author of: ‘Souls of the Sea’.

“Children should not die, but it happens, and in recounting this harrowing tale, Paddy Cummins has reached into the very fabric of the human soul.
This book is not just for people interested in fishing or the sea. It is for everybody, and is one of the most emotionally charged books published this year”.

The Crying Sea five star

This review is from: The Crying Sea (Kindle Edition)
This gripping novel is inspired by one of the most intriguing sea mysteries of recent times, and tells the story of the fishing boat ‘Simshar’ which exploded in a raging inferno and sank, throwing her crew into the Mediterranean, and the Island of Malta into shock and confusion.
The crew had nothing but a flimsy, makeshift raft of netting, and some plastic containers, and for six days and nights drifted aimlessly in a harrowing struggle of human endurance.
It’s four years now since that terrible tragedy, but the Maltese people are still baffled and bewildered. They remain unconvinced with the explanations offered, and with the scant evidence produced to show what really happened on that ill-fated voyage.
The family-owned and operated fishing boat left the little port of Marsaxlokk at 5 am on July 7th 2008 for a sword fishing trip to the fertile fishing grounds 80 miles from Malta off the coast of Sicily. Three generations of the family were on board, plus two crewmen, a Maltese and a young Somali.
Three days of excellent fishing that filled the hold with swordfish was amazing, they were steaming for home a day earlier than planned, and the Skipper and crew were jubilant.
The catastrophe that befell the ‘Simshar’ and her crew on their homeward journey, and the circumstances surrounding it, has since been the subject of exhausting government and police inquiries.
On July 12th, the wife of the skipper reported the vessel and its crew missing, and The Armed Forces of Malta embarked on a massive search and rescue operation, which lasted for six days without finding the slightest trace of the ‘Simshar’ or the crew.
The Island of Malta was awash with rumours, raw anger, and conspiracy theories. Reports of Maltese and Sicilian fishermen being at war over encroachment of rich fishing grounds fueled the speculation. Malta, despite having an extensive fishing fleet, had not suffered a fatal fishing tragedy for 84 years, but this one gripped the island in a frenzy of turmoil and emotion.
While researching ‘The Crying Sea’, Irish author, Paddy Cummins spent many months among the Marsaxlokk fishermen, discussing the tragedy and hearing their views. To protect those involved, the story is told in fictional form, with the names of people and places changed. All the characters in the novel are fictional, created by the author, and are not the real characters.
The book is a profile of suspense, mystery and intrigue, and many who have read it testify to its powerful emotional effect, but also to a beautiful portrayal of a harrowing saga of intense human drama.

This review is from: The Crying Sea (Kindle Edition)

This is a quick read that packs a very powerful punch, especially as it is based on a true story that rocked the Maltese nation in 2008. Obviously, I would not know what really happened and there may be some artistic licence in the book, but the whole read from start to finish is believable and very moving indeed with the author certainly seeming to have carried out a tremendous amount of research into the tragedy itself as well as the day to day life on a fishing vessel.

The events are told in the present tense, in a very matter of fact way with no unnecessary melodrama which, for the first part of the story really gives you a sense of normalcy although for the book as the whole certainly puts you right on the spot. At times it almost feels as if you are a fly on the wall especially with the attention to detail about both the family’s everyday lives and life on board the fishing vessel.

Tension is palpable when tragedy does strike and we follow the tragic events that unfold in such a way that you want to race to the end of the book but on the other hand you don’t really want to know the fate of the fishermen. The author really brings out the range of emotions that must have gone through these poor men’s minds = the hope and the fear and their final resignation to their fates, yet all the time still clinging to their faith in God.

In addition, we follow what happens at home when Gabriella, wife of Skipper Paul, realises that something is wrong and that her husband, father in law and 11 year old son should have arrived home and the subsequent rescue missions to try and find them and the author really portrays the emotions that are experienced during the rescue mission.

A very good read, one that is different and that will stay in your mind for a long while after.

Paddy relates the true story of his life as he grows and develops. He reveals to us the innumerable changes of direction he makes, but always with the emphasis on moving onwards and upwards. As you read you want to follow Paddy; to go where he goes, to see what he sees and to share in his good times and his bad. You feel compelled to stay with him because you want to know how each episode ends and how the next begins, until finally, well – there is no ‘finally’ as Paddy says ‘I’ll stroll on while there’s still more road to travel, while it’s still daylight and before the darkness sets in.’ I really enjoyed keeping him company, and look forward to doing more of the same in the future.

This review is from: In Love With Malta: The Hidden Treasures (Paperback)

The heart and soul of Malta.

Of all the guide books on Malta, this one captures the real heart and soul, the culture, history and people of the islands. I have been to Malta for one short visit and enjoyed every minute of it. But I only saw the well known highlights and felt I didn’t discover the real character and charm of the Maltese Islands. Now, armed with this ‘Bible’ of the lesser known treasures of these idyllic little islands, I can’t wait to return and savour the enchanting atmosphere of all the hidden gems that this book unveils. I feel that this long awaited guide to the real Malta will be an essential item for all tourists visiting the islands in future. An emphatic five stars from me.
