In 1865, upon learning of the death of her friend Mary, Lady Creeghan, Martise St. James travels from war torn Virginia to Scotland on a mission. She plans to investigate Mary's death and search for the St. James emerald that she sent to her late friend for safekeeping while the Civil War had marauders from both sides stealing from civilians. 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. Harriet Klausner

Old language was a little hard at times, but a good story.

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.

I could hardly put this story down l. I love the time period and the Highlands and mystery. From the very first it had me gripped within its pages to discover who caused the untimely death of Lady Mary and why Martisa was truely there. I highly recommend

The heroine annoyed me and it didn't get interesting till the middle end of the book. I had to finish it just to see what happened.

This is a very good book, excellent read. It has romance, suspense and mystery. I really enjoyed the characters, but the heroine did get on my nerve. But overall, great book and a very happy ending. I rated it 5 stars because of the twists the author included in the story. Nook showed 288 pages (but I noticed a lot of the page numbers were duplicated, it is longer than 288 ).
