Overview

New York Times bestselling author Cathy Maxwell continues her dazzling series, The Brides of Wishmore

He had a noose around his neck and a price on his head . . .

Sabrina Davidson, dutiful daughter, avowed spinster, thought she'd secured a place for herself in Aberfeldy society— until her hard-earned acceptance of her fate is challenged by the arrival of Cormac Enright, earl of Ballin, trained physician, soldier of fortune, and convicted felon.

A prim and proper miss was the last thing he needed . . .

Mac is determined to clear his name, but first he has to find the man whose testimony sentenced him to a hangman's noose. Of course, Robert Davidson is missing and protecting Mac is Davidson's daughter, the most entrancing, frustrating, beguiling, stubborn woman Mac has ever met.

And it doesn't help that he has already tasted her kisses. Or that he has found in her a passion for life and adventure to rival his own.

Mac has turned Sabrina's world inside out—but what will happen when he leaves?

Or will the Groom Say Yes?

The book starts out with a man in jail on the eve of his hanging and progresses through his escape scene. As he travels into Scotland to find the person who testified that he killed a young girl (of which he is innocent) he falls ill and stumbles upon an empty bothy where he passes out. He is discovered by a young lady known to have healing skills and she takes him home to tend him. In the meantime, there is a whole other story unfolding about the life of this young lady which is just fascinating. As the story progresses the two lives become entertwined and a romance develops. At the same time there is a mystery as to the disappearance of the young lady's father and the two must unravel the mystery in order to prove the innocence of the gentleman she has nursed back to health (Mac). This story truly was so good I couldn't put it down and had to finish it in one day. It was very good and I would highly recommend it! Although this is listed as part of a series it is indeed a stand alone story that can be read without having to read the other books.

The final book in the colorful and very entertaining and fun Brides of Wishmore series by Cathy Maxwell concludes with this mystery romance. The mystery, at times, threatens to override the budding romance between Sabrina and Cormac and I found myself a bit bogged down with it in the middle before it got back on track. Sabrina Davidson has been content with her life as a respectable single woman in the small Scottish village of Aberfeldy. Her beautiful and scandalous cousins Aileen and Tara have married happily but her life is upended when the bold and brash Widow Bosley announces her engagement to Sabrina’s widowed father. Suddenly, Sabrina is tired of her sedate and boring life. Her situation as a respectable daughter of a magistrate threatens to become pitiful and she can’t bear that dismal prospect. So when she stumbles upon Irishman Cormac Enright, a very ill fugitive hiding in a nearby bothy, she rescues him and restores him to health. She also feels an attraction to him that she cautiously acts on but then it becomes something much more than she first intended…and she is ruined. When she comes to her senses and finds out who he is, she finds it’s also tied to the sudden disappearance of her father and the local vicar. This is where the story descends a little too much into mystery for my taste. But Maxwell can really tell a story and this one is just as joyful in feeling (at least, toward the end) as the first two books in the series, although not as much as my favorite, The Bride Says Maybe. Set in the beautiful Scottish countryside in the Regency era, Mary Jane Wells reads expertly in both Irish and Scottish brogues that brought a smile to my face. I could easily recognize all the characters, male and female: Sabrina’s no-nonsense and (mostly) sensible personality, the Earl of Tey’s drunken rasp, Cormac’s flirtatious and easy cadence, and the wily Widow Bosley’s know-it-all chatter. The Epilogue is kind of odd but, then again, I suppose it’s very much in keeping with the mystery aspects of this story. A delightful series I highly recommend in audio.

This is the third book the series and was very enjoyable, I could hardly put down.  Cormac "Mac" Enright, Earl of Ballin is on the run after being helped to escape from the Hangmans noose for murder. He needs to find the one man that can clear his name. Sabrina Davidson finds Mac hiding in a shepherds hut sick and burning up with fever. Sabrina takes him home determined to nurse him back to health. These characters have so much in common. They are both strong, loving people who do what they think is right for their family. Even if it means giving up on their own hopes and dreams for the future. In each other they find a kindred soul. It was refreshing to read a romance that the hero knew he loved the heroine and had to convince her they were meant to be together.  I highly recommend thine series.

I enjoyed the book and actually like both Mac and Sabrina.   I was not thrilled with the other characters except for the Widow Bossley.

This is a very good murder mystery with a love story thrown in for good measure.

This was my first Cathy Maxwell and I believe it will be my last. I read the entire story, but find very little to recommend it. It had a promising beginning, but the love story developed before the characters ever spoke to each other. I personally found this lack of awareness of each other as people to be odd and not what I look for in a "romance" story. As the story progressed, Cormac and ..'s love becomes more understandable, but overall the story seemed contrived and lacking in character depth.

Loved this book, but would like to see a follow up on the detective part of Sebrina. This story doesn't need to stop here. It really seems like a beginning of a new story. Thanks

Edinburgh - September 1817 Sabrina Davidson is 29-years-old and considered to be a spinster.  She spent many years of her youth caring for her mother who passed away two years ago of a wasting disease.  She loved her mother dearly and was happy to care for her.  Now, she helps to care for her father assisting him with secretarial duties.  When she finds that the widow Bossley, a woman of loose morals, is going to wed her father, she is incensed.  Her father had vowed to never marry again.  To cool her anger, Sabrina takes a walk in the forest and discovers a man in a crofter’s cottage burning up with fever.  Determined to help him, she secrets him into her house to care for him. Cormac Enright has managed to escape prison just before he is due to be hanged for a crime he did not commit.  He is also a physician and the earl of Ballin.  As Sabrina cares for him, she realizes that she will probably never marry and does not want to have her place in her home usurped by the widow Bossley.  When Sabrina kisses Cormac, the contact leads to sudden passion. Why was Cormac falsely accused and who was the person that murdered the person he was to be hanged for? This is when I found the book to be a bit convoluted.  It seemed well-written at first but in wrapping up the story, the facts came out quickly and were rather confusing.  However, I did enjoy the first two books of The Brides of Wishmore series.
