The Story of Grenville King

(The third book in the Conor O'Shea series)
A novel by


USA Today Bestselling Author Jean Grainger wants to take you to Ireland.

Castle Dysert is derelict, but Conor is determined to revive it, so why is someone trying to stop him?

Handsome, kind and funny, Conor O’Shea has had enough of driving and guiding tours of Ireland.

So when an opportunity to renovate and run the magnificent but rundown Castle Dysert as a five-star resort presents itself, he grabs it with both hands.

But problems arise almost immediately when his business partner appears to have more on her agenda than just business.
To add to that, his darling wife seems discontented as a stay at home mom, and his in-laws have moved in.
With his family’s future now entangled in a stunningly beautiful old castle on the coast of Clare, Conor undertakes a mammoth project, and in so doing, he uncovers the troubled past of this ancient stronghold. The mystery of the family who lived, loved, and lost their lives within the walls of the castle are reflected in his own family as they too struggle to let go of the past. 
Like in every small Irish village, gossip abounds. But do the ghosts of regret still haunt these ancient hallways? It is now left to Conor to explore the truth and uncover a heartbreaking lesson on the power of memory and the long threads that bind us together.

In The Story of Grenville King, Jean Grainger takes you once again to the real heart of Ireland.

What reviewers are saying:

'Move over Maeve Binchy, Jean Grainger's novels are a fresh new voice in Irish literature, but with all of Maeve's warmth and emotional intelligence.'

'Grenville King is the third book in the Conor series. I loved them all but this is my favourite.'

'A sexy Irishman, a haunted castle and a plot that twists and turns unexpectedly. What's not to love?'
