4.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable indeed, 17 Jun 2013
This review is from: The House on the Shore (Kindle Edition)
This book was recommended to me by a friend, so I downloaded the Kindle edition and got reading. I'm a bit of a sucker for heroines who head off to Scotland after broken romances since I spent twenty years living in Scotland. This is my first book from this author and I was very pleasantly surprised by it. I do dread badly-written sickly romances and with so many of them about, it's unusual to find one that is a bit more earthy. I found most of the characters well-written and realistic, although I have to say the laird and his new factor were slightly disappointing caricatures.

This book feels to be in the same vein as Mary Stewart, although not quite reaching the same level of outstanding talent. That sounds a little harsh, I don't mean it to be, Mary Stewart was such an acclaimed author, and Victoria Howard does a very good job of writing in a similar genre.

There are a few very small proofreading errors that I picked up on, but they barely detracted from my enjoyment, although the publisher should have done a bit of a better job there.

All in all, it's a good, high quality read and I very much enjoyed the hours I spent reading it. Thank you for writing it, Ms Howard.
