Legacy of the Highlands is a captivating tale that links a murder in 21st century Boston to a vow made in 1320 by the victim's Scottish ancestor. When Will Cameron’s body is discovered in a Boston alley, the only clue to the thirty-four-year-old’s murder is a pristine Scottish sgian dubh dagger left beside it. His devastated widow, Alexandra, flees Boston to find refuge in the Miami villa of Will’s best friend, Diego Navarro, who has the means, power and temperament to solve the puzzle and to avenge the senseless killing. Diego, a handsome and wealthy Argentine, is equally determined to win the grieving widow’s heart. They find it increasingly difficult to resist a growing attraction to each other as they follow leads that take them from Miami to Buenos Aires and Scotland unraveling the Cameron family’s secrets and the Legacy of the Highlands.
It has been a while since I have read a romantic suspense and I was ready to read something a little more adult after all the YA's I have been reading lately, don't get me wrong, I love the YA genre but sometimes you just need something that doesn't involve teenage angst and all that comes with it.
Which could be why when Harriet approached me with reviewing her new book I jumped at the chance to read it.
After reading the synopsis I knew it would be something I could really enjoy and I really truly did.
The writing was so well done and the plot was fantastic. It kept me turning the pages, in fact I almost read it all in one sitting.
The characters were all fabulous and while I didn't feel a connection to any of them, it just wasn't necessary in this book. The storyline was so captivating that I found myself more wrapped up in it than anything else.
I love that this one had an open ended ending so that it left it wide open for a sequel (which I would love to see happen!). I wouldn't mind a little more Diego time!
This truly was very well done and I really hope that Harriet comes out with another book soon because I think she is truly talented.
