    Great Reading

    I enjoyed reading this book. My husband enjoyed it also. It is very well written and I highly recommend it. ‘A Highland Pearl’ is a book you will want to read and share with others.

    Highland Pearl a Must Read..!!!

    I really enjoyed Highland Pearl. The author described the beautiful landscape so wonderfully. The suspense will keep you reading, a love story you can’t put down.

    Romance between two from enemy clans falls flat

    I am voluntarily submitting my honest review after receiving a copy of this ebook via NetGalley. I tried to like this book. I really did. But two words sum it all up for me: far-fetched and sappy. But first: SPOILER ALERT!!! STOP READING NOW if you don't want to know some elements of the plot in advance. SPOILER ALERT! First, it is inconceivable to me that a clan's tanist and the chief's brother would keep secrets from the laird. There is simply no way that Gavin would not have told Andrew right away that Davina had asked her maid to steal Maidie's bag, particularly since it contained herbs she needed to heal Andrew. Gavin would never have withheld potentially lifesaving treatment from his brother and other clan members. Further, it is impossible to believe that Andrew wouldn't be angry upon learning that Gavin lied about Davina's betrayal. In addition, Gavin and Andrew's initial capitulation to MacKenzie, Frazer and Cameron's demands is ridiculous. There is no way a true laird in that time period would ever sign a divorce decree falsely claiming adultery on his part, particularly when doing so would mean the loss of a significant inheritance. Also, the notion that any man of this time period would trade a much coveted, strategically placed castle for a corpse is ludicrous. What makes Scottish Highland historical romance novels so appealing are the strong, decisive, tough, fair, gallant and heroic "men's men" you just don't find the modern era. This novel is totally devoid of those essential characters. And while Maidie, Nellie and a few other women in the novel are well-drawn and likable, they simply aren't enough to carry the entire book. The pacing of the plot is a little awkward as well--one minute, Maidie is a widow and a healer who has been under Andrew's nose for seven years and the next he is in love with her, but nothing happens, then the plot resolution seems to unfold in a great rush. There is also a large dose of Christian indoctrination in this novel--had I realized that, I wouldn't have selected this book, but readers who enjoy inspirational reading won't be troubled by this aspect. Still, sadly, despite my love of all things Scotland, I can't recommend this novel.
