Review: Highland Vixen

Highland Vixen
Highland Vixen by Mary Wine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Unusual story line is the thing that came to mind as I read this book. But it was very intriguing to me how the author works on the situation between Marcus and Helen and creates a very enthralling story with the additional characters of Brenda, young Katherine and the not so nice Morton.

While reading this book I saw how easy it would be to have a misunderstanding based on a person’s actions, words and their individual clan standards. In fact, I was intrigued with the differences between the clans and their beliefs regarding women and ownership as well as integrity.

Author Mary Wine shows with her research and writing skills her love for this era and Scotland by creating vivid images that drew me further into the plot of this story. Her descriptions allowed the reader to feel like they had fallen back into time and was an active participant.

There were times that I was upset with Helen and wished she opened herself more to what Marcus was really trying to show her and well Marcus is just a hard-headed man who couldn’t see what she was asking from him. Despite Marcus’s faux pas, I still was drawn to him and found him perfect for Helen. How the author works out this part of their relationship was handled with finesse creating moments that made me laugh out loud.

Even after finishing the book the character of Brenda keeps coming to mind and I feel a need to have a book on her with a happy resolution for this powerful woman.

I give this 4 STARS and recommend others read this book.

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
