My Review:Beginning Babble-I must confess something. I read this book while in hiding at a child’s birthday party. I know. I know. Not nice. But it was either read the party away or collapse in tears and exhaustion. This book was a great companion. It kept me distracted and was an excellent read at the same time.
Heroine: Mirabelle-Mirabelle was one of those heroines that I really liked and for the life of me I cannot tell you a reason why. I just liked her. She was kind, smart and brave. I loved how she was willing to take her fate into her own hands. She wasn't willing to blindly marry the first creeper who chased her. The girl has moxy and I love that.
Hero: Sorley-Oh boy was Sorely an amazing hero. He was such a good guy. So sweet and gentle. Don't get me wrong. He had his rough and tumble side to but overall he was honorable to the extreme. I liked Mirabelle a lot but this book was all about him. He goes on my list of Life Ruining Heroes with Mr. Darcy, Gilbert Blythe and Derek Craven.
Chemistry- Mirabelle and Sorley were just...perfect. They worked well together. Their personalities complemented each other. They had a bit of a past together and that added a nice aspect to the build-up of their relationship. They had a bit of angst to them and I definitely loved that.
Ending Babble-I haven't had a clunker of a book for a while and, to tell you the truth, that has me worried. Because when it happens, I have a feeling it is going to be epic. I did love this one. The writing was excellent. I love how vivid and lifelike Welfonder's characters are. The secondary characters are just as amazing and Sorley and Mirabelle. I love that there is also a bit of humor to balance it out. I sometimes need that bit of a chuckle when reading a book. Especially when you are reading a book in the middle of a children's birthday party and someone—not me although it was a close call-- is throwing a fit in the middle of the ball pit.
Sue-Ellen Welfonder is a Scotophile whose burning wish to make frequent trips to the land of her dreams led her to a twenty-year career with the airlines.
Now a full-time writer, she's quick to admit that she much prefers wielding a pen to pushing tea and coffee. She makes annual visits to Scotland, insisting they are a necessity, as each trip gives her inspiration for new books.
Proud of her own Hebridean ancestry, she belongs to two clan societies: the MacFie Clan Society and the Clan MacAlpine Society. In addition to Scotland, her greatest passions are medieval history, the paranormal, and dogs. She never watches television, loves haggis, and writes at a 450-year-old desk that once stood in a Bavarian castle.
Sue-Ellen is married and currently resides with her husband and Jack Russell terrier in Florida.
