Review @DanicaWinters - Once a Gypsy by Danica Winters (Irish Traveller #1)

Once a Gypsy
Irish Traveller #1
by Danica Winters
Blurb:  Thrilling and romantic, Once a Gypsy starts a brand new series from award-winning author Danica Winters.

“A haunting and fresh voice in paranormal romance. Be prepared for Danica Winters to ensnare you in her dark and seductive world.”―Cecy Robson, author of the Weird Girls series and 2016 Double-Nominated RITA® Finalist

Even for a clairvoyant, the future is never a sure thing.

Helena has always struggled to fit in with her Irish Traveller family. It’s not just her opposition to getting married or her determination to attend university; Helena also has one talent that sets her apart from the rest of her clan―the gift of the Forshaw, the ability to see the future.

Graham is the groundskeeper at a manor in Adare, Ireland. Though the estate appears idyllic, it holds dark secrets, and despite his own supernatural gifts, Graham can’t solve Adare Manor’s problems by himself. Desperate for help, Graham seeks out a last resort: Helena, whose skills are far greater than even she knows.

When he promises to teach her to control her powers, Helena resists, afraid both of the damage her abilities might do and her increasing attraction to the handsome groundskeeper. Her entire way of life is at risk: Any involvement, especially romantic, with non-Travellers like Graham is forbidden. But Helena’s future is anything but certain, and fate has other plans for her family, her powers, and her relationship with Graham.

About the Author:  Danica Winters is a bestselling author who is known for writing award-winning books that grip readers with their ability to drive emotion through suspense and often a touch of magic. When she’s not working, she can be found in the wilds of Montana testing her patience while she tries to understand the allure of various crafts (quilting, pottery, and painting are not her thing).  She always believes the cup is neither half full nor half empty, but it better be filled with wine.

My Thoughts - 3 out of 5 unicorns - I liked it!!!

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  Yes, I got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!

This is the first book in the series. 

This is an interesting read because I’ve never read a book about gypsies and Forshaw before.  This book took quite a while to develop, and as it sometimes happens, it was a little slow at times to build the world and characters.  I do not think this could be avoided.  It didn’t have as much action as I like, but I enjoyed reading it.  Helena is an interesting woman stuck between the world she knows and what she wants.  She doesn’t want to be a possession, and she thinks she is worth more.  I love her fighting spirit and caring heart.  Graham is like Helena, and they connect.  There is foresight, magic, murder, spirit, and more.  I think this series will get better and better.

Anyone who enjoys Irish folklore, spirits, and magic will enjoy reading this book!  I can’t wait to see what happens in the next book!
