Review – ‘Always a Wanderer’ by Danica Winters

Blurb 

Helena O’Driscoll and Graham Kelly’s first few months together haven’t been easy. Helena, missing the traditional Traveller lifestyle she gave up for Graham, can’t help but feel that their cultural differences have doomed their relationship. And with preparations for their brand-new hospital for Supernaturals filling their days, they feel out of sync, and maybe even out of love.
When a man from the local equestrian center is murdered, Helena begins having visions of the future darker and more dangerous than ever before. With a killer in their midst, everyone at Adare Manor is at risk, and Helena and Graham must work together to catch the culprit even as their relationship unravels. And when the murderer claims another victim, this one even closer to Helena’s heart, the question becomes not whether their love will survive, but whether they will.

Review 


In the second book of the Irish Traveller series, Helena O’Driscoll and Graham Kelly’s relationship is on the rocks. She’s lived a nomadic life but, even among her family of gypsies, she’s different than everyone else. That’s because she has the gift of Forshaw (she can see the future) and it makes other people uncomfortable around her. She and Graham met in the previous book and they fell in love despite their cultural differences. Now, several months later, she’s settled down with Graham at his home of Adare Manor and they’ve opened a hospital for ‘supernatural’ people. Things should be wonderful, but the tension between them is threatening to tear them and their love apart. She misses her traveling ways but when cruel, bigoted people who think anyone who’s different doesn’t deserve to live threaten the hospital and their lives, their relationship and their determination to survive is put to the test.
I really enjoyed this book. Helena is a strong woman with an interesting background. She knows what her heart wants, and it’s torn between her love of Graham and her love of freedom to go wherever she wishes. She’s more powerful than she realizes and she’s trying to get a grip on what she can do. Graham loves her but is trying to give her the space she needs to adjust to her lifestyle. He’s a wonderful, handsome, caring man and he totally made my heart flutter. The chemistry between them sizzled.
I loved all the information about gypsies and the traveling lifestyle, and I’m happy that it didn’t overwhelm the story. The author really did her homework.
This is a great book and I’m happy I read it.
