entertaining historical romantic suspense
To obtain entrance to Castle Creeghan in the Highlands, she informs the widower Lord Bruce Creeghan that she is Mary's sister. Although she believes her host killed his wife, Martise finds she desires him. As she investigates the castle's secrets, Martise learns that most inside the keep believe murder occurred and the laird is the suspect. Although they fall in love in between arguments, he vows never again will someone he cares for be a victim while she fears being victim number two.
With engaging illustrations by Yevgeniya Yeretskaya that enhance the strong gothic plot, fans will enjoy this entertaining historical romantic suspense. The lead couple is a terrific pairing of a brave amateur sleuth and the prime suspect as she tries serendipitously to investigate the murder and the missing emerald while he tries to keep her safe. With a strong support cast, readers will relish this solid Victorian era romantic whodunit romance.

The Smut Gets in the Way
The two main characters do not have any real chemistry and Creeghan is more domineering than charming by any stretch of the imagination. As if there were not enough sexual scenes, the descriptions, however original, are laughably dramatic. A slow read if ever I had one, but the mystery of Creeghan was this story's only saving grace. This would have been a much better mystery novel than a romantic one. Martise as a heroine for the story was far too weak and dramatic for my tastes. But perhaps that was due to the tone of the story.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
