It was so nice to read a Scottish, time travel novel whereby the hero wasn't so ALL BEING as Laird, Warrior, Lover, and Protector. I enjoyed watching Iain, the male counterpart of this story, grow in thought, confidence, and mind. The innocence he brought to the story with his lack of knowledge how strong he really is, kept me as a reader rooting for him to understand his capability. Everyone around him saw how worthy he was, except him. With each Chapter he grew and realized all he does for his clan and how much his Uncle, whom he gave leadership, was destroying it. With the help of a strong woman, friends, and realization, the growth of these characters with keep you cheering them on with Pom poms from the comfort of your favorite reading place. Not just another time travel Scottish romance. This story is about learning about yourself, trusting in what you've learned and taking a leap of faith. I highly recommend if this is a genre you enjoy. It comes with a feeling of triumphant in yourself..
First, I have to say that I am the type of person to feel anxiety over a well-written character. I want the heroine or hero to get out of whatever quandary they’ve found themselves and find happiness. Logically, I know that the situation is fiction, but if the character is believable, I will worry for their well-being. This was easily the case with Traci and Fiona. I worried about how they’d resolve their story and if they would make the right choices.
Secondly, I like a story to be logical. Now, this is always a stretch with topics like time travel or science fiction. However, I need the novel to have continuity to the timeline and the concept to be maintained by the writer. The topic can be a complete fantasy to me as long as it’s kept throughout the entire storyline. Angela Quarles does this. As a reader, I didn’t feel that I had to work around errors or try to find ways to mentally fill gaps.
Lastly, the story needs to entertain me. I look for a story to transform the way I think, transport me to another time (ironic, no?) and/or give me a break from my own reality. This story (and series) does that. It’s well-written, well-edited, and has a great premise. The characters are flawed, but likeable. The dialogue flows well and scene descriptions are concise.
If you are looking for a great series, I think this is a great one to add to your must-read list.
You can look at my reviews for Angela Quarles’ other works, I’ve read them all, and can honestly say that I love her voice. Her characters are warm and funny, but also flawed and entirely relatable. In this book, Traci and Iain both go through tremendous growth and it was flirty, sassy, and fun to watch. And, it was also exciting because this book has a gender role reversal of those typically found in romance novels: Iain is a really vulnerable guy that just wants to find love and it is Traci that has far more emotional barriers and mental blocks to overcome. Don’t get me wrong, Iain has to figure out who he is and what role he wants to play in his Clan, but it feels like he really settles in for the long haul way before Traci. Readers will fall in love with him way before Traci realizes she loves him, too.
Another thing I love about these books is the sense of setting and atmosphere. The descriptions of the valleys, the fog, the craggy mountains – Oy. It is enough to make you hear bagpipes in your sleep. They are very well written and you can easily visualize the settings of each location and an historical battle described in the book. While you don’t quite know what everyone had for breakfast that morning, you certainly get a lot of historical details about how weapons were used and how they handled, what the clothes looked and felt like, and all sorts of interesting facts – like wetting a plaid makes it into a windbreaker or how Highlanders fought in battles without their kilts (FREEBALLING IN BATTLE, PEOPLE! Google it. It really happened).
As for the plot, I quite enjoyed it. I loved the interactions between Traci and Fiona, watching siblings that weren’t that close as kids try to reconnect as adults is something I’ve been through myself. I loved the journey across Scotland to try and reunite the sisters. I loved watching Iain find his place in the Clan. And I loved watching the two villains meet their fates. And, yes, there are two. Oh, and have I mentioned the hawt schmexy times? Because *growl* yeah. They’re pretty great. Needless to say, spending a lot of time in Glenfidditch’s saddle helped Traci become a better cowgirl, if you know what I mean. *eyebrow waggle*
While this is the 3rd book in the series, it could be a stand-alone book. Though, because you do hear from Katy and Mr. Podbury, and there are a few mentions of Isabelle, it would be incredibly helpful to read the series in order. I particularly enjoyed the scenes with Mr. Podbury and having him explain how the timelines and alternate worlds work. Time travel theory can really make you think, and get a headache if you think too much. This book explains things well and answers a few questions that had been bugging me for the last two books.
So, overall, yes, I loved this book. I highly recommend it to anyone that loves time travel, romances, time travel romances (obvz), Scotland, or hawt guys in kilts. It is a fun romp, an easy way to spend a few hours, and a great addition to this series.
