The story was fast paced, exciting, and steamy. Everything you want in a good book. I loved the hero and the heroine, and the side characters drew me in in a way that has me excited to read their books.
I loved that the hero seemed authentic to the time period. He grumbled and played the alpha male role to perfection. The heroine was one of the few heroines in time travel books that does not continually do idiotic things. Granted she screwed up a time or two, but the hero was not having to come to her rescue constantly. I liked that, because I believe that a modern woman would never do the stupid stuff most authors put in their books. I mean really... If you had a madman trying to rape and kill you, would you go strolling in the garden?
It was not perfect, no book is. I was a bit disappointed that we did not get any of the funny fish out of water scenes that I love in time travel books. I wanted to know more about her adjustment to life in the past. In fact, the only thing that she ever really complained about or even discussed missing was coffe. What about electricity, running water, cars, doctors???? But other than that, it was an awesome book.
Yep, that's right they'd had their eyes out for her. They knew eventually that the right girl would come along who would be perfect for their son, Patrick. Unlike most matchmaking parents, they never mention their son or their intentions. Good reason too since they might scare off the slightly introverted Laurie. It might be hard to explain that their hard working, handsome son exists more than a couple centuries in the past.
Laurie's goal is to veg out for a month. Forget about her job and her demanding cousin Finn. What happens is she falls in love with a neglected cabin she finds in the woods. So much so, she talks the B & B owners into renting it to her for a year. The appearance of the small home changes her entire life focus. The sullen gardener decides to help her, but in turns helps herself more. Laurie Bernard may be the answer to lifting a fairy curse.
This is the real reason Laurie finds herself hurtling through space and time only to land at the feet of the most handsome man she's ever met. All isn't easy. Not only is the very delicious Patrick engaged to a highland chieftain's daughter, but also her Da is ready to force a war to insure Patrick marries the gel. Throw in fairies and brownies working against one another, a greedy, deceitful uncle and a lecherous thug who keeps trying to kidnap Laurie and you have problems. Who ever said the path of true love ever ran smooth?
Beyond the Garden Gates contains a vivid backdrop of historical Scotland. Ms. Hamilton has certainly done her research. The secondary characters are well rounded and troublesome for the most part. Patrick and Laurie have great chemistry and witty repartee.
Beyond the Garden Gate is a debut novel, which makes it so extraordinary. Many veteran authors don't reach this level of characterization and story flow until several books later. You like romance, hunky Scots and fairies, then, this is the book for you.
