    If you liked Gone With the Wind, then you will like The Talisma


    If you liked Gone With the Wind, then you will like The Talisman. Ailis and Gavin have many obstacles in their way,but just when I thought I knew how they would be( married or not )something exciting would happen to them. This book is not only a romance novel but it has a mystery to be solved. With the use of authentic dialogue the story makes you feel as if you are reading a true story not a romance novel. I am looking forward to reading other books by Deborah Gafford in the future. Great read you will enjoy this one.

    Great Read!!

    Having truly enjoyed Deborah's first book, Highland Bride (it's on my keeper shelf!) I was happy to learn she had written another. And once again, Deborah doesn't disappoint. In The Talisman, the book's hero, Calum, is to die for! If only we could all have a man that hunky, sexy, good-natured and strong. Sigh. And after the tragedies and hardships the heroine, Ailis, encounters, he is exactly what she needs. Calum is a vivid compliment to Ailis's strong will and fiesty nature. Besides the strong sexual tension and romantic storyline of the main characters, Deborah does a great job intertwining a murder mystery and secondary character relationship into the book. Her setting and world-building skills are quite impressive. The detailed descriptions and authentic dialogue she uses make 16th century Scotland come alive. I truly enjoyed the read, Deborah! I can't wait to read You're in Good Hands with Al Tate next!

    Very interesting.

    This is much better than the first. In fact just skip the first book- juvenile characters. The author does use a lot of middle english words inconsistently which is more of a distraction than interesting but it's ok.
