Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Highlander's Bride Forester quickly & easily takes readers back in time with this exciting novel. The historical accuracy mixed with the sense of adventure was great. It really drew me in. That said, there were times where things fit together a little too neatly for me. The coincidences and luck involved were just enough to make me question it, thus jarring me out of the story a little. The characters were what one would stereotypically expect for the time period. Forester really plays up the religious devotion throughout, setting a certain tone for the novel. I loved the dynamic between Colette & Gavin. Their duty clashes with their desires on so many different levels. And despite the situations that they find themselves in, I had fun getting to know these two. That said, Gavin’s lack of history, or the skimming over it at least, made him difficult to really get to know. This novel was a nice start to Forester’s new series. She sets the scene and the tone well, showing readers what to expect. At the same time, she set some things up a little more neatly, making parts of the story feel contrived rather than exciting & natural. Overall, however, it was a quite enjoyable read. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
