    Eric Murray, the youngest of his brothers, is determined to gain his rightful inheritance after 13 years of bitter dispute with his father's family. Starting out alone to confront his tight-fisted kinsmen, he encounters a chestnut-haired beauty set upon by thieves. When she begs for Eric's protection for herself and her infant nephew, Eric promises to deliver them to the safety of her family.

    CAROLYN says: "I PROMISE IT'S A GREAT HIGHLAND ROMANCE"
    "VERY disappointed - and so many good reviews!"

    Story
    What would have made Highland Promise better?

    Where do I start? The narration might not have been so bad if the story had been better.


    What was most disappointing about Hannah Howell’s story?

    The heroine! How many times can she think it's "safe" to go out unprotected, and every time she's attacked? Not very quick witted. The sex was rather ho-hum as well.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Unable to distinguish her "male" voices from certain female characters. Male voices too gravelly.


    What character would you cut from Highland Promise?

    The heroine. She's a dim-witted dud.


    Any additional comments?

    The story is also the weary conundrum of a couple unwilling to each be the one to admit to being in love first - so they both "hold back" certain truths.

    Anne Perry's Victorian murder mysteries have enthralled millions with their evocative atmosphere and finely-crafted suspense. Now, in this mesmerizing best seller, the star of these mysteries, Inspector William Monk, returns to solve the most heartbreaking case of his career.

    Nina says: "Oh, yummy, yummy -- another great Anne Perry"
    "Suspenseful"
    Overall

    Good story, but a very, abrupt ending. It was like having a door slammed shut in your face.

    Story

    An amateur naturalist dies of mushroom poisoning, a day later the local librarian kills herself, then the buried bones of an infant are discovered. Chicago native Leigh Girard is finding life in a small town can be fatal. Determined to start a new life after her mastectomy, Leigh flees to Wisconsin's Door County peninsula, where she takes a job as reporter for the local newspaper. Her first assignment, the naturalist's obituary, turns into a hunt for a murderer.

    Bob says: "not as good as I thought it would be"
    "Unimpressed"
    Overall

    I don't think the author knows anything about being in Door County in the fall/early winter. It just wasn't credible on several levels.

    The narrator had the flattest monotone I've heard in a long time. Not someone I'd ever have read a book again.
