Publisher's Summary

Sir Diarmot MacEnroy, deciding his illegitimate children need a mother and his keep needs a proper lady, now stands before the altar with a gentle bride he hopes is too shy to disrupt his life or break his heart. The nuptials, however, are interrupted by the appearance of a flame-haired beauty carrying two babies, boldly claiming that she is his wife and mother of his twin infant sons. Armed with her seven very large brothers, she has come to demand her due.

Having waited one year for the return of the handsome laird who wed her, bedded her, then disappeared, Ilsa Campbell MacEnroy takes matters into her own hands and sets out to reclaim the man she briefly and passionately loved. Stunned by his denial, her heart softens when she learns of the injury that has ravaged his memory. Now, she faces the nearly impossible task of conquering his past-and his fierce reluctance to share his heart…

    "Narration"
    If you could sum up Highland Groom in three words, what would they be?

    Story is fun.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Angela Dawes is a poor narrator. There is absolutely very little inflection or feeling in her reading. Also, she actually mispronounces words and skips over some of the too.
    She makes the story boring to listen to. I turned the narration off and read the book myself.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Reading the Kindle book myself there were a several places where I laughed and cried. It was a well written story.


    Any additional comments?

    I notice that this narrator is reading in several other of the Highlander books. I don't think I will buy the narration anymore if she is reading.

    "Strong woman"

    I like the memory loss angle. I also like a lass that can take care of herself. The (turn about is fair play) ending was a nice twist. Dermet deserved to have to chase Ilsa down.

    "If you like Scotsmen ...l"

    Setting: Scotland, 1471
    Genre: Romance
    I don't, as a rule, listen to anything set in the era in which this one was. Most books set in the 14-1500s seem to involve Court intrigue, especially those set in Scotland. I prefer my politics current and non-fiction, thank you. However, this was very low cost when purchased with the Kindle version, and the plot was apolitical. I'm actually glad I had the Kindle as it allowed me to keep the many characters straight and I'm glad I had Audible or I would have been mispronouncing place and character names.
    Narration was good, though Angela Dawe is somewhat laconic in her English accent, which is what she used for the non-dialog. I found that listening to it at 1.25 speed took care of that, and the solution did not subtract from the Scottish accent, which she does very well.
    This was #8 in a series, but it worked well as a stand-alone. The plot was interesting, as it was filled with "accidents", and more evident attempts on the lives of both of the main characters. There's passion between Ilsa and Diarmot in the bedroom, but otherwise, he treats her with suspicion. The solution to those issues wrap up in the end. It takes a while to figure out the villains, but you likely will, so it won't be an earth shattering revelation at the end. I found the conclusion satisfying, with no loose ends left.
    Overall a good use of your time and credit.

    "It wasn't quiet the same..."
    Would you listen to Highland Groom again? Why?

    Yes, only if I was re-listening to the entire series. It was an ok story but nothing spectacular.


    What other book might you compare Highland Groom to and why?

    It follows a similar format of all of the Murray series books. I absolutely loved the Cameron's!!! They reminded me a lot like the Murray's. The h/h didn't have much chemistry IMO. I found Diarmot to be very stubborn. I wanted to hit him upside the head a few times. IIsa was great but had some annoying moments.


    Have you listened to any of Angela Dawe’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes and she's about the same in all of them. She has a nice voice.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did not. Although I saw who the culprits were early on in the book. It was predictable but like-able.


    Any additional comments?

    If you're a fan of the Murray series then this book is for you. It was more like 3.5 for me.

    "HIGHLAND MYSTERY & INTRIGUE IN MEDIEVAL TIMES"

    These books are always a sure thing for me as I love rugged Highlanders but I find that I can't just listen to them one after another because then they become a bit repetitive so instead I visit the Clans off an on so the format never becomes stale.

    I really enjoyed this one which was funny, frustrating, heartbreaking and had a good plot of a jilted lover, memory loss, an evil dead wife who left a terrible legacy, traitors, revenge, loveable children, good secondary characters and a strong Heroine who's hell bent on keeping her man no matter what sh&t the Hero throws her way. There wasn't a great deal of romance and the sex was tame but the feelings they once had for each other were always there somewhere and thankfully surfaced at the end.

    Worth a credit? If you're in the mood for a fairly lighthearted Highland tale with an ending that'll leave you with a smile on your face then look no further and these books could each be stand alone listens. I'm slowly working my way through all of Hannah Howell's impressive collection of Clan based Warriors and don't regret any of the credits so YES IMHO worth a credit.
