4.0 out of 5 stars Scottish bluesReviewed in the United States on October 30, 2015Verified PurchaseThe Scots are famous for their long-standing feuds so when I discovered such a feud in this one, I was nicely surprised that it didn’t involve any Scots at all but the American visitor, Lurch whose past he’d prefer to keep hidden. Really loved the Scottish dialect and in particular the initial fish out of water element when Lurch meets Hamish and Lori and of course the fiery Cate with whom he falls instantly in love with and (so romantic) refuses to leave Scotland without. Once they all come visit the states, the story changes quite dramatically as Lurch’s past catches up with him and it gets very scary for them all for quite an interlude. Would have loved to hear their music and if this is made into a movie, which it should, it would probably make a great soundtrack.

Why has he taken her if not for ransom? Lori fears the answer. North by Northeast: The MacGrough Clan Book 3 Cherime MacFarlane

Hamish warned her enough. With an idea for a new series of paintings buzzing in her head after a successful show, Lori opens the door without checking. A bag drops over her head and she realizes what a mistake that was. Hamish is several thousand miles away in Scotland and can’t help her now. Lori must use her wits to survive.
The damnable second sight tells him something is wrong. With his mother gone, Lori is all Hamish has. He’ll move heaven and earth to get her back.
Bushmaster reforms to help one of their own accomplish what the police can’t seem to do, get his wife back. An adventure story filled with love, loyalty and determination.

5.0 out of 5 stars An exciting and engrossing read!Reviewed in the United States on November 8, 2014Verified PurchaseThe Macgrough Clan is a bundle of laughs even when the going gets rough. I remember them fondly from “Wired for sound” another Macgrough book, and it felt like I was meeting old friends again. This is more of an action packed thriller, as Lori gets kidnapped and Hamish has to use all the tricks up his sleeve to get her back.

The characters have grown from the last time I met them. Though they’re still a bit of a kick ass bunch, they have sobered down a lot and got more responsible. I love the accent (I actually hear it in my head as I read) To find Lori, Hamish has to travel all the way across to The U.S.A and Canada which are not his stomping grounds. He has to make do with what he can.

Cherime Mcfarlane makes the characters lovable and quirky, She knows a lot of information on varied subjects or she’s really done a lot of excellent research. This book is a well written, fast paced adventure which you will love. It is totally unputdownable, so get ready to stay up late as the author take you to a thrilling finish. An exciting and engrossing read!

5.0 out of 5 stars ExcellentReviewed in the United States on April 13, 2017Verified PurchaseAnother great novel by Cherime MacFarlane.

What I love about this author’s work is the feeling of being there. I feel as if the author has an intimate knowledge of her characters and the space they inhabit, and she has the proven to convey the reality of the scene, without the story flow being punctured by weighty descriptions. The space the characters inhabit and the nature of each character comes through in the dialogue.
The world of wired for sound in one of the behind the scenes of the music world. It is realistic. The suspense plot is gripping, page turning, the romance deeply satisfying. As always, Cherime conveys a love for country that I share, and that makes me a huge fan of this author’s work.

Fifty Sheds of Books5.0 out of 5 stars Planet CrisisReviewed in the United Kingdom on August 9, 2020Verified PurchaseCherime MacFarlane is an excellent author. I’m familiar with her realistic romances, but in Planet Crisis she demonstrates that she is equally adept at co-writing excellent science fiction stories too.

From the atmospheric cover, to the engaging storyline to the well-crafted prose Planet Crisis is a quality read. At novella length, this is a story that can be enjoyed in one sitting, and therefore is ideal for when you have an hour to spare or are looking to offer your mind an enjoyable, diverting break.

Highly recommended. I also suggest you check out the author’s extensive back catalogue, especially if you have an interest in romance or Alaska.

REVIEW

A Great Start to a Series!Reviewed in the United States on April 19, 2015Verified PurchaseCherime MacFarlane’s first book in the MacGrough Clan series, “Highland Light,” is a promising start to a rather prolific looking saga.

MacFarlane’s characters were interesting, each with their own unique personalities and ways of approaching situations. The twists and turns in the story kept one wanting to know what would happen next.

What I really appreciated was how much of the Scottish culture was accurately portrayed in this book (right down to a glossary of Scottish cultural terms and their meaning). It really lent a sense of authenticity to what one reads on the page.

Overall, this was a great read to just sit and sink into for a while. Fans of the show “Monarch of the Glen,” will appreciate a lot of facets about this book.

A second chance Alaska romance.

Trudy has no choice, there is no backup plan.

BookcollecterVINE VOICE5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it!Reviewed in the United States on July 20, 2015Verified Purchase

Della and Munk, the elders and a whole cast of characters living in Alaska was a real reading treat for me. The way in which Ms MacFarlane crafts her story by asking questions right at the beginning, swept me into the book and never stopped sweeping me along, as the story progressed.

This is a romance, however it is much more. Never having been to Alaska, I was grateful that such a good writer was able to open my imaginings about the place. Her detail descriptions, realistic dialogue, and ability to connect this reader with the characters, major and minor, is why I keep buying Mac Farlane’s books. And I have a funny feeling there will be another instalment!

A great book.

CAN LINDA STOP THE DANGEROUS GAME SHE PLAYS? COUGAR HUNT CHERIME MACFARALANE COPPER RIVER ROMANCES BK 4

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb romance in AlaskaReviewed in the United States on April 6, 2015Verified PurchaseCougar Hunt (Copper River Romances Book 4) is the newest offering I’ve read from the talented Cherime MacFarlane. I have come to esteem Chermine for her Scottish series of historicals, as well as her Alaskan adventures, but Cougar Hunt is a romantic tale which makes Alaska not so much a character, but more a perfect background for her characters. Nevertheless, the pioneering spirit of Alaska pervades MacFarlane’s every book, and makes you want to cuddle up with a beloved before a roaring fire.

Cougar Hunt centers on Linda Rae (Lrae), struggling to overcome her checkered past. Deserted by her father, she feels unworthy of love. The details of this will wrench your heart, so I won’t spoil things for you.

Joey is the love interest in this story, has emotional problems of his own, the most pressing being he wants Lrae to love him.

Alaska can be a cold place for lovers, when passion is overcome by fears. The only cure for heartbreak here is to find reason to live and someone to love.

This tale, modern and yet mindful of the roots of romanticism, will fill you up, ignite your own heart, and make you remember all the loves you’ve had in days gone by.

The story is intriguing, gripping, at times scenic — Alaska is always around you, a place a bit stranger than where you’ve been before. And so is the chance of love, of forgiveness, even of rapture.

Nor does MacFarlane forget our lust for adventure; she merely translates it into modern, attainable form. This book is elegant, simple, and immensely readable. If the right person rads it, expect to see it as a tv miniseries or feature film.

I highly recommend Cougar Hunt, if you’re a woman or a man with blood running in your veins and an adventurous soul.
