    Horrid Book

    I bought this book a while back, but I could never get into it. I had heard good things about this authour and decided to give her a try. I would hate to judge all of her work on this one book, but it was horrid. It was very slow, and the characters were not likable. The herorine lusts after her companion's fiance, and that's just threw me off. Also the fact that she was considered a "loose woman." I tried very hard to get into this story, but I couldn't. I ended up giving the book away to a friend who also didn't enjoy it.

    An enjoyable historical romantic whodunit

    In 1850 in Rosemoor, Scotland, Grant Roberson is stunned by the recent unexplained deaths of his brothers that have led to him becoming the Earl of Straithern, as he was not even the spare, which he relished as he had time for his scientific experiments. Still grieving and shook up, Grant decides he needs to marry a levelheaded sedate female so that he can begat the heir and spare without a fuss. He chooses the doctor's daughter, Arabella Fenton.----------------- However, Grant finds himself thinking more of Arabella¿s friend Gillian Cameron although she will not suit as she is passionate about life. She also shows she is brilliant as she shares his knowledge of electricity experiments. As they fall in love, Gilliam fears the feeling as she has been burned before by it while Grant still insists he needs a meek malleable mate even as the pair begin investigating together who killed his siblings and why.------------------ THE SCOTTISH COMPANION is a charming Victorian Scottish amateur sleuth romance starring two likable protagonists who combine a love of science with a curious need to learn the truth re his siblings and eventually love an emotion neither wanted. Fans will appreciate their escapades as they face danger from an unknown adversary while investigating the murders of his brothers as no motive seems to surface. Karen Ranney provides an enjoyable historical romantic whodunit.--------------- Harriet Klausner
