Setting? The story takes place on the Scottish island of Eilean na Sgairbh, which is cut off from the mainland twice a day, and is reached by a causeway called The Narrows, so there is a fantastic setting.
Heroine? A sassy, independent, intelligent young woman called Ishabel Stuart, who has returned to the island after the death of her father - a man, it has to be said, who was not exactly easy to like. Issy returns to her Aunt Esme's home, hoping to find peace and quiet, and some sort of refuge, with the woman who has been like a mother to her, since her own mother, Isabella Tartaruga - a famous opera singer - more or less abandoned Issy in pursuit of her career. What Issy finds is that Esme is about to leave the island for one of her "missions" and she is leaving behind a paying guest. Issy isn't happy about having unexpected company. Not only does she have to organise the service for her father, but she has secretly broken off her engagement to her boss's son, Jack, and also quit her job. She intends to start afresh on the island, and having to care for a house guest isn't part of her plan.
Hero? The unwelcome house guest turns out to be Brodie, a tall, auburn-haired hunk of gorgeousness, all the way from America.Read more ›
As someone who lives part time in Scotland, I was drawn to this book by the setting, rather than the plot, but was delighted to find it an absolutely charming read, with wonderful atmosphere and great dialogue including portions of totally authentic Scottish dialect. There is humour (Pershing the parrot is hilarious), romance, more than one mystery to be solved, and the sort of outrageous characters that you really meet in this kind of small community.
About the only thing I found hard to swallow was how utterly too-good-to-be-true Brodie remained throughout the book. He was a saint, considering the sort of behaviour he was subjected to, and not just by Ishabel. Where can I find this paragon? I want him!
Highly recommended for lovers of Scotland and romance, with an intriguing touch of mystery.
