After reading On Dublin Street and not really caring for the character of Johanna, I wasn't eager to jump into this next book in the series. Since it's been nearly three years since I read the first book, I thought enough time had passed. I'm not sure if I'm happy that I took such a long break between books or disappointed that I waited so long. I loved how Johanna was portrayed with her back story and present circumstances. The author did a great job of convincing me that she was not who she was wholly portrayed as in On Dublin Street. Besides a couple of vile characters in Johanna's life, the love interests were wonderfully portrayed, as well. Not exactly a love triangle, but Johanna was in a different relationship at the start of the book and I liked that the author didn't make him out to be a terrible person. Instead, as a reader, I felt compassion for him, while at the same time rooted for her new relationship. Boy, did I ever root for Cam MacCabe. Such a dreamy hero and the perfect match for Johanna.

So, I read the ebook while I also interchangeably listened to the audiobook. I highly recommend the audio with the yummy Scottish accent. The audio was performed by a single female narrator, but she did an amazing job with both the female and male voices, as well as a convincing American accent for a couple of characters.

Nice storyline following the first book, I believe it was well written. You find yourself worrying about the characters and general twists and turns throughout the story.

This was a great follow up (#2 in series) to 'On Dublin Street'. The characters and story line of Jo and Cameron really is interesting and worth getting into.

This book was a departure from my usual reading habits. I loved it!
The story was totally engrossing- I was hooked to the lives of all the characters. The plot was solid with the right amount of romance and drama to keep me at the edge of your seat.

Really enjoyed this book, I loved the realism of it. I really like this author as well. The way she writes her books, you get hooked on the characters and storyline from the start and I literally couldn't get thru the book fast enough to see what would happen. Looking forward to her other books.

This was a great sequel to On Dublin Street. I enjoyed the story and characters. I hope the author continues in the series!

This review describes a different Samantha Young book. "On Dublin Street."

The book is about two characters featured in "On Dublin Street".

Jo & Cam are the main characters in "Down London Road".

Please make the correction. The description is not correct.

I've read so many romance novels where the couple need to overcome some tragic, damaging past, that I arrived at this story with the same notion in mind. The difference here is that Jo is trying to hide her present, not her past. And she has good reason to want to keep that side of her personal life private. It's a variation on the same theme, but one that I appreciated.

Great read! Great story. Jo was definitely made out to be a golddigger. loved that the author explained her character more thoroughly.
