  • Sweep Me Away!

    I think I have read almost everything this author has written and really enjoyed her books tremendously. This one takes a different turn set in America after the civil war 1860's. Just to imagine all of the immigrants coming to America to start a new life and that included some from Scotland! The MacEnroy brother's so far have been sigh worthy and this one is about Geordie, his younger brother Robbie and a friend who travel to get to the sea. They encounter Mehitabel Ampleford (love that name!) who is trying to hold off a neighbor who is determined to buy her land. She is set up a life for herself with a place for people to stay while visitng the sea. Belle can really do a little of everything. Geordie and his brother decide to stay and he and Belle build a slow attraction. I mean who could not be attracted to this Scot? An enjoyable story that frames a lot of what was going on during these times when it was still hard to be a woman at times and independent. Looking forward to readng Robbie's story and the rest of the brother's tales

  • Poorly written, shallow character development,

    Once again I have to ask who is writing this series. The writing is nothing like the usual Hannah Howell style. There is a lot of repetition with no purpose, the story is disjointed, and one questions if this was seen by an editor. I really enjoy her other series and have now tried three in this one. I won’t try again.

  • The Scotsman Who Swept Me Away

    Loved this book! Hannah Howell does not disappoint! I love how there is humor, a little mystery and adventure, and, of course . a happy ending.One of my favourite authors. I have read all of her books.

  • Finding his true home

    As I landed in this series through the third installment, I needed at first some times to understand the situation outside of the one brother staring in this book, glad the author managed to resume the history of some of the other brothers. This is a slowly conducted story as it first focused on the hero of the book. Geordie is the one brother who has a sea call, he feels an urge to go the coast and misses the ocean and he knows in his guts he has to see it again. Why he embarks in this trip to the east. It has been decades since I read a book setting during the Civil War (probably the North and South Series), well this one here is set after and shows the devastation it caused. Plus, as a coincidence, I read just two days ago, a book talking at a time of the ravages caused by the violent eviction of the Scottish tenants, some escaping to America in hope of a better future. It was a very unhurried paced read, the heroine is introduced at the quater mark of the story. Mehitabel is no damsel-in-distress, she has full control of her land but deals nearly every day with a neighbor who does not understand the word no. And his threats become more and more urging. Geordie and Belle’s romance was a quiet affair, no sizzling lust, just them enjoying another’s presence and their closeness helping to bring them together. It is a lovely tale with a lot of descriptions about Geordie’s journey with his brother and friend, then the care of Belle’s land and the healing of Robbie, Geordie’s brother. Outside the romance, the storyline has many ramifications and side characters, each branch finds its resolve. The author is very talented to have crafted such a very detailed story with the hardship and struggles the people had during this period, it is not my favorite style of reading, a bit too sluggish at time, with not enough sparkles between the couple, it felt short outside the bedroom scenes, more an historical fiction than romance with a lot of informations about the way of life during these times. But if you like your reads full of details, with aplenty of characters, this is one for you. But as I came to love Robbie, the wounded brother, I am curious about his fate. 4.5 stars I was granted an advance copy by Netgalley and the publisher Kensington Books, I purchased my own copy too. It is my true and unbiased opinion.
