If you enjoy stories with a Scottish tang, then these four novellas are your next “must read.” Two are set in the old country, and two on America’s shores, but all of them include a Highlander you’ll be swept away by. And the final story will throw you a curve you never see coming! If you dinna get your copy yet, you shouldna wait much longer!
I enjoyed a lot about this book. The characters are interesting and believable, the setting is beautifully written, and the writing is good. The ending, however, fell apart for me. That could very well be just a personal preference, so I’m still giving it a solid three stars, because others may love the ending.
I was given a copy of this book by a friend, so I had no expectations going into it. I haven’t read any books by Susie Finkbeiner before and didn’t even know what genre this was when I opened the cover. (I almost never read the BCC on a gifted book and didn’t this time either.)
I barely remember the 1960s, being born then, but I felt the tug of my earliest memories as I read through the book. It’s written entirely from one first-person point of view, which is not my favorite way to experience a story, but it works.
This is a tough book to review without giving any spoilers, so I’m not going to get into the details at all. If you enjoy a story that tugs at your heart, that examines the dysfunctionality of the family, that centers entirely on one character, and that pushes against the historical norms of society, then this might be your next best read.
Classic Robin Patchen! Plenty of unexpected things happen when an ex-con and an artist team up – accidentally – to bring down a murderer. Loved the characters in this one. He’s broody and temperamental, the quintessential artist. She’s independent and insecure, an interesting combination. Together, they’ll keep you turning the pages.
I don’t know why it took me so long to read a book by Lori Benton. But I’m glad I finally did! This story is a rich tapestry of the era peopled with characters who will draw you into their world. Benton does a very credible job – and it’s a difficult one – of balancing the relationship between white settlers and natives. Too many authors want to make the former all evil and the latter all saints. Benton didn’t do that. Her characters are all true-to-life with warts and all. That’s what makes it easy to slip into sync with them as you read. I highly recommend this on to all readers who enjoy historical romance at its best.
I always enjoy Lynn Austin’s books, so this one was no surprise. It wasn’t her easiest book to get into, it wasn’t that it started slowly, but more that I had a harder time connecting with the main heroine. She wasn’t very likable. But stick with her because her character arc is really something! I absolutely loved her by the end. The other main female character was more fascinating from the start. They are as different as chalk from cheese, but both really interesting characters. So worth reading!
