Karen’s Magic Review
I’d had this book on my Kindle for a long while before I started reading it. I saw the author posting about it on Facebook and eventually decided to give it a try. However, I gave up after three chapters because it felt like I was reading Katie, the main character’s diary. There was nothing to pique my curiosity and make me suspect something was going to happen to her. I enjoyed the first couple of chapters as we learnt about her and the business but when chapter three was more of the same, I became bored.
This book has got some great reviews, it has a great cover, and the description is enticing. So when the time was right, I gave it another go and started from where I left off. At chapter four the story starts. Katie is kidnapped, her friends and family are frantic and it is a riveting and suspenseful read.
I was waiting for the love interest to arrive and when he did, I didn’t recognise him. He came across as a bit sleezy with his thoughts. The poor girl was going through hell with her kidnapper and he all he was thinking about was having sex with her. He eventually turns into a hero as rescues her.
Just when you think the story is nicely wound up, it continues at the pace of the first three chapters before suddenly taking off again with another twist to the storyline. Well told, very suspenseful and keeps the reader glued to the page. A twist to the tale I wasn’t expecting.
Overall, the action and thrills, along with the romance are all in there. The author knows how to pack a punch and you will enjoy it.
This is book two in the Romancing in Scotland series. The characters from book one do appear and it doesn’t matter that you don’t know their story. The book can be read in any order and standalone stories.
