Five years after the trip to Scotland that changed her life, Lou is back in the misty, magical country. But this time, she's not on vacation.
When Brian, her old Highland fling, turns up at the scene of some depressing family business, tension mounts between the former lovers. But dealing with Brian is only part of the problem; something wicked is stirring in Scotland. Lou must use all her strength to handle the increasingly desperate situation, but will she be strong enough to battle both a vengeful ghost and her heart?
Lou may have thought that she was finished with the witch Isobel Key, but some secrets can't stay buried forever.

I bought this book because I'd enjoyed the authors 1st book in this series "The Secret of Isobel Key". This one is frustrating because all of the sentences are misaligned and fragmented . I tried changing the settings . I can't enjoy the story because of this.
I really enjoyed "The Secret of Isobel Key" as a Free Friday book: immediately purchased this one to continue the story. I was terribly disappointed to find that it is not properly formatted. It appears that there is a paragraph marker approximately every 80 - 90 characters, which forces a new indented line to start, often in mid-sentence. I tried different fonts sizes and styles, but nothing helped.
The story felt rushed in the sequal compared to the first book, but I liked the overall concept.
