My rating: 4 stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Mystery and the lore surrounding Loch Ness is at the heart of this intriguing novel. It is not just the monster that dwells within the loch that is being searched for. The much-coveted gold of Bonnie Prince Charlie lost for years is also drawing many people in with the hope of a cash prize for the one who discovers either.
I was drawn to this wonderful book because it promised a gripping tale full of mystery and thrills, and that is just what you get. Yet I was not prepared for being transported to the highlands and being so enthralled by even the smaller details. I never thought I would be so tense reading about someone attempting to catch a pike, but it was just so powerful!
The lure of the plot really held me throughout and as I learned more about the characters, I became even more involved. Tina with a troubled past comes to Scotland with her new partner Jack who quickly becomes obsessed with the lore of the loch. They both decide to stay to discover more with the help of a highlander. Romance, mystery and suspense ensue which, turn out some rather unexpected yet intriguing circumstances.
I would certainly recommend anyone to read this book as it is well written, the characters are interesting and well developed and the plot is gripping and engaging. What more could you want?
I was gifted this copy in return for an honest review. Thank you to Dee Taylor, The Conrad Press and Random TTours for this opportunity.
