I don’t think I’ve read a gothic novel since high school and I’m not sure what got me to purchase this one, but I’m sure glad I did. The romance in it is light (thank goodness) and the basic story line involves an archeological dig in Scotland that is led in part by the ghost of one of the Roman soldiers. I just made that sound rather corny; but the author skillfully intertwines the romance, the mystery, the ghost story and words from the Scots dialect into a wonderful page-turner. I’ll be looking for more of her books.
Have a good week!
