A tranquil Irish vacation, music, scenery, food… and a priest on the run from the mob.

When a shadowy couple turn up on Conor O’Shea’s grand tour of Ireland, the tranquility of Ireland’s landscape acts as a shelter against the stormy reality of the life they left behind.

On the run from a notorious mob boss, this mysterious couple flees the U.S. in search of sanctuary on the shores of the Emerald Isle, hoping to blend in with the tourists. In their wake lies a mafia family’s secrets and a scarred priest torn between his duty to the cloth and to the truth.

Intriguing and uniquely consuming, Father Declan Sullivan’s tale of destiny and duty lies at the feet of those he has betrayed. Can distance and deliverance save the innocent in their desperate pursuit for peace, or will evil catch up to them all?

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

I have loved all of Jean Grainger’s books, this most recent one did not leave me disappointed. I loved learning about how life turned out for some of the characters in her first book, The Tour, and this one expanded. She left some parts open ended, hopefully for another sequel! It was a great read.


I consider this a five star read. I heartily recommend this book without any reservations, to young adults, adults, as well as all genders, men and women alike. It is a clean book, which I appreciate, as well.


I enjoyed reading up about characters previously met in Grainger’s prior book. Conor hosts another tour in Ireland, but this time more attention is paid to two people on the tour. Declan and Lucia are introduced quickly and they have a secret. As the story progresses their situation evolves. Very entertaining.


I absolutely loved this sequel to The Tour! There was a lot more exciting, nail-biting, action and all the characters were very well developed and became friends that I cared about. I also liked the updates on several of the characters from the previous book. I am looking forward to a possible third book so that I can catch up with all my new friends.


I would give a TEN if available! Jean Grainger is fantastic! I love reading books based in Ireland and Jean is my favorite of all. I have read all of her books and highly recommend buying all of them. My only complaint is she can’t write as fast I can read.

About The Author

Jean Grainger – Winner of the 2016 Authors Circle Novel of Excellence

Hello and thanks for taking time out to check out my page. If you’re wondering what you’re getting with my books then think Maeve Binchy but with a historical twist. I was born in Cork, Ireland in 1971 from a large family of storytellers. I have worked as a history lecturer at University, a teacher of English, History and Drama in secondary school, a playwright, and a tour guide of my beloved Ireland. I am married with four children and live in a stone cottage in Mid-Cork with them and a deaf cat called Rebel.

My experiences leading groups, mainly from the United States, led me to write my first novel, ‘The Tour’. My observances of the often funny, sometimes sad but always interesting events on tours fascinated me. People really did confide the most extraordinary things, the safety of strangers I suppose. It’s a fictional story set on a tour bus but many of the characters are based on people I met over the years. The sequel to The Tour, called Safe at the Edge of the World, follows Conor O’Shea once again as he takes another motley crew on a tour of Ireland. The third Tour book, The Story of Grenville King is due for release in early 2018.

Many of the people who have reviewed my books have said that you get to know the characters and really become attached to them, that’s wonderful for me to hear because that’s how I feel about them too. I grew up on Maeve Binchy and Deirdre Purcell and I aspired to being like them. If you buy one of my books I’m very grateful and I really hope you enjoy it. If you do, or even if you don’t, please take the time to post a review. Writing is a source of constant contentment to me and I am so fortunate to have the time and the inclination to do it, but to read a review written by someone on the other side of the world really does make my day.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Jean Grainger and ENT appreciate it.
