Book Review-Highland Arms: A Highland Chronicles Tale (Highland Chronicles Tales Book 1)-Cathie Dunn

Friday, July 3, 2020

This one really had me going! I was angry for Catriona and sad for her at the same time. I wanted to do something violent to her brother and his friends.

Rory was somehow in the middle--but I was routing for him most of the time!! Of course it took him a bit to realize that Catriona was not who he thought she was!

Catriona's godmother and Rory's aunt was a dear sweet woman--but did she ever know how to get things done!!

This one really got my emotions going and I loved every second of it!!

Five years after an ill-fated Jacobite rebellion, Rory Cameron works as a smuggler to raise money for the cause - until Catriona uncovers a plot against him and, inadvertently, exposes his activities. Now, Rory is faced with a decision that could either save their lives, or destroy them both.

But he's running out of time...

The book sounds feisty! I love books that take place in Scotland or Ireland.
