As a mechanical engineer in 1981 Chicago, Connie designs plumbing systems. She has also designed her life to perfection, right down to the man she hopes to marry. But when Mr. Right proposes, she can't say yes. A head-clearing vacation brings her to the Scottish Highlands, where her free-spirited twin wishes for Connie to find true love. Neither sister expects the wish to send Connie hurtling 500 years into the past.
Wilhelm Murray, heir to the barony of Dornoch, hopes to one day hold a seat in Parliament and bring urgently needed reform to Scotland. But everything changes when a woman slated for execution proclaims her innocence using the most peculiar language. Powerfully attracted to the brave beauty, he rescues her even though it means becoming a fugitive and forfeiting his dream.
As Connie and Wilhelm evade capture, she discovers his passion for justice. Scotland needs his ideas. It needs him. And so does she. But in order to clear Wilhelm's name, she will have to turn her back on everything she's worked so hard for and embrace the magic of love.

Even though this is book 3 in the Highland Wishes series, I don't feel like I've missed a thing, only a desire to find out what books 1 and 2 are about. After this heart-jolting, emotionally gripping ride into a world I would probably not be educationally equipped to enter and survive in (in reality), I have to experience Jessi's worlds again.
Constance has planned out her life (boring), but her heart won't let her make the final step in sealing her fate with a passionless marriage. Her sister, knowing her better than anyone else, gives her an extraordinary gift...a chance at being truly happy. For Constance that means a trip back in time.
Willhelm Murray steps in and makes what could have been a very short trip into something that lasts through the ages. This drool-worthy Scot not only has the brawn and brain to see Constance safe, he also has the ability to make her consider revising her plans.
This story has a little of everything with its action-adventure, romance, a villian I wanted to see get exactly what he deserved and great secondary characters. It didn't rush through any of the storyline and it kept my attention from the beginning.
I'm on to book 1 and 2 in this series.
It comes a time when you have to choose between listening to audible or going to bed.
Maybe this should of been the 1st book in the series. After a few chapters I stopped. Hell I already read the fist book so I know what was going to happen. The second book it the best listen in this series.
I was sorry I listened to this book as the third book in the series. It was my favorite of the three, but having listened to Book #1, I basically knew what was going to happen. If you have not listened or read the other two books, listen to this one first!
Fate, Discovery, Desire
Behind the Plaid by Eliza Knight in both stories a woman time travels to 16th Century Scotland and fall in love with a Highlander.
I received this book free for review.
Time Travel Romance
The way the characters interacted and how they handled the time travel situation
Her narration adds the accents that really complete the story
There were a few teary moments - esp when the Thurstons take Constance as their daughter
An audio book that features characters with an accent is always more interesting when the accents are done well as they are in this case
This was a nice story but it was a bit slow for me. The beginning was fast paced and grabbed my attention quickly but I began to lose interest about a third of the way through the book and it didn't pick up, for me, until the last 20% of the story.
I loved how she could jump from one accent to the next and sound realistic in each one.
I was gifted a copy by the author and I voluntarily wrote my review.
