I was bored...
I read all the reviews and rushed to buy this book. I really shouldn't have bothered. Who reviewed this book--the author's best friends? She knows a lot about Scottish lore, but she falls into the trap of over-describing everything, which leads to endless repetitions. She used so many phrazes over and over again... I felt fatigued. Her storytelling capabilities are mediocre at best. Not much story. The first 2 days of the plot drag on for 100 pages. Then when something interesting pops up, the author jumps to the next month and we are left wondering. Basically this book is just a long description of mystical atmosphere. Not much romance. Very little meat. I enjoy romances with a bit of friction between the lead characters. Here they just slide into togetherness without any steam. I was bored.
