What she doesn't know is that his operation is not over yet and he is training someone who will take over his empire. Penelope Morelli. Beautiful but cold she will not give up and eliminate anyone who stands on her way of success. 
-catching breath-

Whoaaaaaa! I just want to say that all that I have been reading lately is Romance. That sweet and cute love where a boy meets girl, they can't resist each other and everything is butterflies and pink hearts. And I don't mind it. Not at all. But Muckross Folly was a completely surprise and I did not expect that. It was exactly the kind of "different" that I needed and I loved every moment of it. Two badass women who want to prove themselves made me seriously want to live at least a day in their life. Except maybe for when the tragedy happen.. But overall this is a MUST read! Amazing - 4 stars.
