    Outlander fans should enjoy this

    Lara MacInnes travels to Scotland to search her family history. While staying with the Glendennings she discovers that there is a strong history between the two families. An old feud going back to the time of the Jacobites. However her very great grandfather Lachlan MacInnes fell in love with Elspeth Glendenning. The past and the present mirror each other as Lara falls in love with Iain Glendenning. The stories of present day as well as from the 1800 unfold as you turn the pages of The MacInnes Affair. Blair McDowell writing will have you falling in love with the mists and moors of Scotland as you follow both pairs of MaCinnes and Glendennings. Scotland is as much of this story as the characters are. The work the author has put into this book is obvious through her descriptions of the land, the clothing, language, traditions and the overall setting of the stories. Quite an enjoyable escape, I thank the author and NetGalley for allowing me the opportunity to read The MacInnes Affair and offer my feedback.

    A captivating tale!

    The MacInnes Affair is a captivating tale. Lara MacInnes has just gotten out of a relationship and has decided to spend the summer in Scotland researching Clan MacInnes. She meets the handsome Iain Glendenning her first day and finds herself intrigued by the Scotsman. The pair come across several diaries belonging to Elspeth Glendenning, an ancestor of Iain’s, that begin in 1850. When Lara reads the diaries and finds that Elspeth was involved with her ancestor, Lachlan MacInnes. Wanting to know more about Lachlan, Lara with help from Iain begins digging into the past. They soon find themselves embroiled in a hundred and fifty year old mystery. The MacInnes Affair is a story that captured and held my attention from beginning to end. I liked the characters and the rugged landscape of Scotland. Blair McDowell’s descriptions brought the book alive. I enjoy being able to visualize the scenery like Athdara Castle surrounded by the woods and the stone cottage where Lara resided. The dual-time line added depth to the story. The author’s research is evident from the clothing, the food, modes of transportation, and attitudes of the people. The ending of The MacInnes Affair left me smiling. The MacInnes Affair has a dashing hero, a charming lady, warring clans, a Scottish estate, and historical intrigue.
