Pleasant pass the time sort of book.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Shadowy Horses (Paperback)
A young woman archaeologist attends at a dig on the Scots borders where she finds romance and more than a touch of the supernatural. I quite enjoyed this book, although it's not a desperate need to know page turner. It's the sort of story you can leave with your granny and know that she's not going to get a shock if she reads it. The characters are well drawn although their prototypes definitely come from women's magazines and there's more than a hint of Mills & Boon about the hero with 'the thick slanting fall of black eyelashes touching his cheekbone, the firm, unyielding angle of his jaw'. The story rather apes the old Mary Stewart novels although the author is not of the same calibre as Stewart. Gentle adventure rather than woman in outright jeopardy. As I said earlier, one for you granny rather than edge of the seat. Amiable and undemanding.
