The Wild Sight is a captivating story filled with romance, intrigue, and a touch of mysticism.
After the death of her mother, American Rylie Powell has come to Ireland to search for the man who might be her father…Dermot O’Shea. Upon her arrival she meets Dermot’s son, Donovan O’Shea, a handsome young man who has come home to Ireland see to his ailing father. Confused by her attraction for the man who might be her brother, Rylie is determined to discover the truth about her parentage.
Blessed (or cursed) with “The Sight” that allows him to see events of the past, Donovan O’Shea didn’t need any more complications in his life…especially not an attractive young woman claiming to be his half-sister. He, too, feels the chemistry between him and Rylie and knows she couldn’t possibly be his sister, but he knows his father is hiding something.
Just when Rylie and Donovan didn’t think life could get any more complicated, a body is discovered on the O’Shea family’s property. Donovan’s visions soon lead him and Rylie into a mystery involving murder, lies, and ghosts of the past. And as Rylie and Donovan search to uncover the truth surrounding the body and the visions, they discover more about each other and the past.
With its twists-and-turns, The Wild Sight captured my attention from the very beginning. The story had just about everything that I had hoped for when I first learned of the book…fascinating characters, a touching romance, an intriguing mystery, and a hint of the paranormal.
I must confess that I was curious as to how the author would handle a romance between two characters that “might” be half-siblings. I won’t reveal any spoilers, but I was pleasantly surprised with how this part of the story played itself out. While it could have seemed outrageous, Ms. McGary managed to make the whole situation involving Rylie’s paternity and its ultimate conclusion believable and I was satisfied with how it was handled.
The mystery of the story was also interesting and I enjoyed reading as the events unfolded. Each twist-and-turn made me wonder what would happen next. Ms. McGary also handled the paranormal aspects of the story very well. She was able to make the events involving Donovan’s “gift” believable blending the past with the present. The addition of these events only enhanced what was already an intriguing tale making the story a nice blend of romantic suspense and paranormal.
Overall, The Wild Sight was a fabulous debut and I look forward to reading more by the author!
