Intrigue and Thrills in the 3rd Installment of The Campbells
Reviewed in the United States on June 27, 2019
Fast paced story of Cat Campbell, weapon wielding healer of the Clan Campbell...also an original member of the Highland Rose school and Nathaniel Worthington Viscount of Lincolnshire, the brother of Evelyn (book 1) and Scarlet (book 2).
Back in book 2 Cat saved and made quite a mark on Queen Catherine. Now the Queen is once again in trouble. Someone or many are poisoning King Charles I and she needs a Highland Rose skilled in healing and weaponry/defence. The best is Catriona Campbell. She agrees to go knowing her life will be in danger. Nathaniel agrees to escort her to his England home and from there Evie and Scar's housekeeper (the most proper woman in manners) Jane Pickney who will whip Cat into a proper "English" lady. Yeah Right!!! Their journey is full of mishaps and the attraction to each others cause so much strain, you just want them to kiss already. Nathaniel falls in love with Cat but has a major secret which prevents him from marrying Cat and Cat has sworn never to marry. Now once in the Palace the intrigue/mystery of who poisoned the king and who is out to get the Queen begins. Cat will ferret out the conspiracy but along the way must overcome her attraction to Nathaniel. What doesn't help is the fact he is willing to risk everything to keep her. Once up against the murderers can the two fight the evil and protect the Queen (and themselves)...
Another fabulous tale from Heather McCollum. I love her quirky secondary characters...Jane was a BIG Hoot!!! Love her. Her descriptive writing makes you feel you are back in time. Her knack for historical details is amazing. You will love this Campbell story!!!
