Ing to see the ocean becomes too repetitive It s hard to see what Belle sees in him There is no romantic build up between Belle and Geordie no real passion yet suddenly they are in bed together Unlike the previous books in this series The Scotsman Who Swept Me Away didn t sweep me away The storyline plods along with no real tension or excitement I ept waiting for the characters to face danger or some crisis but it never happens The story just ends with everyone happy and content Overall I was underwhelmed this is not what I ve come to expect from this authorI received a free ARC from NetGalley and Kensington Books in exchange for an honest review This is the most boring book I have ever read I absolutely have loved most of the Hannah Howell books especially the Highland Series about the Murrays This series Seven Brides for Seven Scotsmen is horrible and this 3rd book is the worst of the lot I find it almost impossible to believe this is the same author The writing is tedious and gives details of the most boring events while skipping over any romance between the hero and heroine who eventually just fall in bed together with no drama or romance Also the storyline sometimes makes no sense It will be morning then she s fixing supper then it s the same morning again I have to think the editor never even read this story and just relied on Ms Howell s history of good writing The only fairly significant challenge in the story line is a neighbor who is trying to steal her land and ends up tryi As I landed in this series through the third installment I needed at first some times to understand the situation outside of the one brother staring in this book glad the author managed to resume the history of some of the other brothersThis is a slowly conducted story as it first focused on the hero of the bookGeordie is the one brother who has a sea call he feels an urge to go the coast and misses the ocean and he nows in his guts he has to see it again Why he embarks in this trip to the eastIt has been decades since I read a book setting during the Civil War probably the North and South Series well this one here is set after and shows the devastation it causedPlus as a coincidence I read just two days ago a book talking at a time of the ravages caused by the violent eviction of the Scottish tenants some escaping to America in hope of a better futureIt was a very unhurried paced read the heroine is introduced at the uater mark of the storyMehitabel is no damsel in distress she has full control of her land but deals nearly every day with a neighbor who does not understand the word no And his threats become and urgingGeordie and Belle s romance was a uiet affair no sizzling lust just them enjoying another s presence and their closeness helping to bring them together It is a lovely tale with a lot of descriptions about Geordie s journey with his brother and friend then the care of Belle s land and the healing of Robbie Geordie s brotherOutside the romance the storyline has many ramifications and side characters each branch finds its resolve The author is very talented to have crafted such a very detailed story with the hardship and struggles the people had during this period it is not my favorite style of reading a bit too sluggish at time with not enough sparkles between the couple it felt short outside the bedroom scenes an historical fiction than romance with a lot of informations about the way of life during these times But if you like your reads full of details with aplenty of characters this is one for youBut as I came to love Robbie the wounded brother I am curious about his fate45 starsI was granted an advance copy by Netgalley and the publisher Kensington Books I purchased my own copy too It is my true and unbiased opinion. Sea His long journey to the beautiful coastline of his adopted homeland feels like a new beginning as lovely Mehitabel so wise and self sufficient offers blessed hope for healing his brother’s wounds Geordie envisions a beautiful life with her as his bride but a woman who has fought so fearlessly for her home may not willingly surrender all for his lo.

O sellbut she won t do it While fighting another battle with them Geordie appears out of nowhere to help her Geordie and his younger brother Robbie have been off fighting the Civil War Now Robbie is injured and both are tired when they strike a deal with Belle to protect her land if she helps to heal Robbie But the that Geordie and Belle work together for their deal the they both start thinking of something Enjoyed their story Well it s about time this author finally wrote another book in this series I really liked the previous books in this seriesOne of the neat things in this series is the time period and setting It is set during and just after the Civil War The author is really good at putting in details The women are also very strong and that includes the woman in this bookShe is the daughter of a doctor and so Fluxus and the Essential Questions of Life knows a lot about fixing people up There s a local landowner who wants to tear down her trees and house and build a hotel but can t because of her ancestor s will Once we have orphans and a wonderful and tender and passionate romance 25 stars rounded upGeordie MacEnroy yearns to see the ocean and sets out with his brother Robbie and James a family friend who is heading home to Maine Geordie isn t sure Robbie is up to the trip he was beaten badly and has yet to fully recover but he insisted on joining Geordie so they are taking their time traveling On one leg of their journey they step in when they see a woman with a young girl being harassed and learn that the widow is heading back to Boston they befriend her and her daughter Morgan and then part ways in Boston Where they spend a few days resting and sightseeing before heading out on the last leg of their journeyMehitabel Belle Ampleford has another run in with her neighbor Charles Bennet but this time he seems agitated and not only has he brought several men with him he also has a gun She tries to defuse the tension but he seems bent on violence she is not sure what she is going to do when three strangers arrive and effectively send Bennet on his way Belle rents rooms and is happy to accommodate the men and notices Robbie in particular might need some nursing I did not enjoy this book nearly as much as the previous books in the series it was for the lack of a better word dull Geordie and Belle are both likeable smart interesting characters but there is nothingeeping them apart and there is no drama moving the story along anytime something came up it was rectified uickly and relatively easily I also felt that the romance seemed to come out of nowhere and they progressed uickly to lovers again without any tension or obstacles Everything just moved slowly and worked out perfectly even when Morgan reappears later in the book the events leading to that were treated like it was no big deal and glossed over It was just strange and the story felt a bit choppy and disjointed I ept waiting for something to happen and it never did I was not unhappy with the book just underwhelmed But if you are looking for sweet uncomplicated story that is easy to read and easy to put down and pick up later this is the book for you It is the third book in the series but it can be read as a standalone with no problemI am voluntarily leaving a review for an eARC that was provided to me by NetGalley and the publisher The Scotsman Who Swept Me Away starts and proceeds very slowly until we meet Belle about a uarter of the way into the story Belle is a strong and self reliant woman who cares for her younger brother and for the property that she inherited Additionally she has a doctor s skills at healing that she learned from her father and she treats illnesses and injuries in her communityGeordie s personality on the other hand comes across as rather bland His constant talk of long.
