Can Carey and Lorie just let me live? Like honestly this third book had literally killed me. This series is amazing and I think I have a love for Scotland and kilts.
While reading I was hooked. I could not stop reading. The book was non stop suspense and action with a mix of dull moments not to tire you out. The girls had so many emotions going through me. The story was great but there were somethings I didn’t like. The last book left you in a big cliff hanger but then this story picked up a week or two or something longer with everything just fine. They didn’t explain anything for awhile which bugged me and they just shoved the cliffhanger aside as a side note. They also would have had a way better more enticing end to their story if they would not have included their epilogue. It just kind of made it not as suspenseful. The big event at the end led to some plot twist type things that just get chopped and untwisted at the epilogue which I found a bad idea. Other than that the story was great and I really loved it.
I am a big romance fan and this story is fantastic. The boys Duncan and Jaime are literal gods. They are such romantics. The love in this book is intoxicating but not overpowering.
Shades of Doon was amazing. Unlike the second book in the series it had an importance to it. I loved this book and cannot wait to read the fourth and final book.
