Irish Enchantment Series
In the magic
“Don’t ask why. Just believe.”
Springen O’Flaherty has the ability to see auras. As a child she lived in a Popsicle world where the kids were swathed in brilliant colors and the grown-ups were a fuzzy pastel. Later, her psychic powers multiplied and resulted in a life of secrets and half-truths–of otherworldly sights and experiences. Spring was resigned to the status quo until she met Jed Collinsworth. Now she wants that two-kids and a mini-van life, but to accomplish her goal she has to be honest with the man she loves. But first she has to come to terms with her unique abilities.
The sudden loss of her dad plays havoc with Spring’s well-laid plans. Ready or not, Jed is about to be introduced to the O’Flaherty clan of western Virginia with all their eccentricities and quirks–tent revival preachers, gospel musicians, healers, heroes, and pot growers. When faced with the truth, will Jed help Spring discover the elusive sense of peace and acceptance that she’s always wanted?

"An evocative, involving novel about how mystical powers can complicate one’s life." Kirkus Reviews
“Annaliese Darr . . . writes of the Appalachian culture of tent revivals, blue grass & gospel music, and beliefs in “psychic gifts” and the old ways with a deftness and clarity that juxtaposes Spring’s new life chapter in the big city. Darr’s dialogue and characters are refreshing and captivating while her heartwarming story encompasses mystery and murder. . . This very special story will touch your heart and pull you in.”– Chanticleer Book Reviews
WHEN THE MAGNOLIA BLOOMS
A threatened California nurse finds safety with a ghost in her ancestral home
Fiona O’Flaherty’s quiet California life is turned upside down when a killer cop starts stalking her. With the help of the Four Amigos—a group of retired law enforcement officers—she changes her identity and flees to a farm in rural Virginia. Much to her surprise her new roommate is a charming ghost who died in 1865.
Even more amazing is the fact that Danann Farm is a mystical Irish village that was transported to America in the early part of the nineteenth century. As a nurse she’s used to multi-tasking, but now she’s falling in love with a handsome spirit while also managing the restoration of a historic home. Not to forget that a serial killer is determined to kill her. What next? How about a pint-sized seer with special powers, a group of geriatric aunties managing the rumor mill, and an extended family ready, willing and able to protect the new mistress of the Magnolia House.
Fiona’s having quite an adventure, but like most magical tales this story will have a happy, if somewhat quirky ending.
