Major faux pas! Did the author forget her previous plotline???
on September 22, 2014
This is the first review I've written on Amazon--I just couldn't believe the author made such a major mistake and none of her editors or proofreaders caught it! At the end of "Highland Lover" she had Gregory and Ewan's brother Brian MacFingal elope with and marry Mavis Kerr. She had a rich dowry and he was a poor younger son so he pursued her boldly. Mavis had wanted to marry Gregory, but he loved Alana Murray instead. Later in "Highland Avenger", Brian (who'd remained single???) became the main character who fell in love with Arianna Murray but tried to give her up because he didn't want to marry for a rich dowry. Even his basic character changed! I've read almost everything Hannah Howell has written over the years and I've thoroughly enjoyed her books. They're imaginative, funny, and full of adventure and romance. Unfortunately, some of her later books lack chemistry, like this one. That's one of the reasons I gave it a low score. Sorry, Hannah!
