I'm a sucker for books set around Shakespeare productions. His journey from 800-year-old ghost to modern lover is both touching and hilarious by turns. I didn't have tremendously high expectations: frothy romance with a little Shakespeare thrown in, I figured. I enjoyed our ghost hero and his lady heroine. Fazit: Werde die Reihe nicht weiterverfolgen. But when he catches a glimpse of the beautiful intruder, suddenly he can't help but wonder why it's taken eight hundred years into his afterlife to find the love of a lifetime.
Every time they blame the food, it's getting old. To view it, My favorite character in this book was the Grandmother, so bold and witty she was! But perhaps I am being unfair in two ways. This is the story of Victoria McKinnon and Connor. I love the time travel books but this is the first one I have read that involves a ghost. In previous books, Conner was portrayed as a nasty, rather unlikeable character and Victoria the overly brash and headstrong sister to other main characters. I admit I did some skipping.
This story is good, but slow in spots. Connor MacDougal has no intention of relinquishing his authority over Thorpewold castle to anyone, let alone a McKinnon. Die Liebesgeschichte war für mich etwas fad, hätte aber Potential gehabt. I love these books don't get me wrong but there are certain things about Mrs. I liked the characters well enough, but the book was just very silly without being very funny.
I totally enjoyed the funny ghosts, the great Scottish highlanders and yeah the cute love story which didn't go on as fast as usual in such books. The undead were horrendous parodies of characters the writer read about somewhere else, and the living characters. I didn't know she'd written any, haven't read them - and never, ever will do so. It has been awhile since I ventured into the magical worlds of Kurland and I found I still thoroughly enjoy it! This one had a ton of characters from other novels if this is the first book of Kurlands you have read put it down and go to her web sight and start with the Macleods and then go on to the De Piaget's. Victoria McKinnon is a hard edged theater producer. Every character that has to speak another language catches on so quickly. It has been awhile since I ventured into the magical worlds of Kurland and I found I still thoroughly enjoy it! One's that don't want anyone with the last name of Mckinnon any where near their castle.
However, like in the play, there are also ghosts at this castle as well. Insgesamt hat es mir zwar besser als die Geistergeschichte in Buch 1 gefallen, aber durch den langweiligen langezogenen Schreibstil und die laue Liebesgeschichte, konnte mich die Autorin wieder nicht überzeugen. She can't imagine anything better than staging Shakespeare's masterpiece in an honest-to-goodness English castle. It's good e I got this book at a secondhand store, not realizing it was the 5th in a series-I'm new to romances, and the blurb sounded interesting. It was evident from constant references that the writer flatters herself that anyone picking up this book will have read whatever others she has written.
Connor is one of my favorite characters of all Lynn's books. ? It's good enough for me to want to read the previous books in the series, and it is definitely worth a read if you like time travel and ghosts which I do. Instead, Victoria gives up her artistic control, and that bugged the heck out of me. All in all its a mellow rom-com novel with the garnishing of supernatural. For the full review, please go to I was tricked into trying this by the premise of a haunted production of Hamlet.
Connor MacDougal has no intention of relinquishing his authority over Thorpewold castle to anyone, let alone a McKinnon. Victoria cannot believe when she starts seeing ghosts not just one but many. There was idiotic behavior, there were prat falls, there was screaming and running and fainting. To view it, I should note before my review that I read this on the way to a funeral, which may have tainted my views somewhat. There was idiotic behavior, there were prat falls, there was screaming and running and fainting.
Probably because it is so well written that I could smell the woods,feel the drafts in the castle and taste the warm ale in the pub! I did figure out the climax after 100 pages, but the 'sub-climax' was unexpected, and had the little bits of thrills. The boar's head trio bring fun to the story.
