About the Book:

Camry MacKeage has absolutely no intention of telling her parents that she left her job as a NASA physicist for the small-town life of a dog-sitter -- which is why she's spending the holidays alone in coastal Maine with her furry friends Tigger and Max. Unfortunately, her irresistibly handsome rival, scientist Luke Pascal, accidentally spilled the beans. Now he's on a mission from her mother to tempt Camry home for the family's annual winter solstice celebration. But Luke is hiding his own secret, and he'll need a little bit of magic to earn Camry's trust...and a whole lot of mistletoe to seduce his way into her heart.

My Review:

A Highlander Christmas is the seventh novel in Janet Chatman's Highlander Series. Having not read the previous six novels I found myself a little confused in the beginning but was soon engrossed in this charming novel. Luke Pascal arrives in Maine from France hoping to work with Camry MacKeage only to discover she is missing. Had Luke not been brought to Grace and Greylan MacKeage's home, half-frozen, they may have continued to believe their daughter was still employed at NASA. Once Luke explains why he is looking for Camry and the part he has played in the unexplained downing of Grace's satellite, Podly, Grace and Greyland ask Luke to find their daughter and bring her back by the winter solstice. Luke sets out for Come Back Cove, where it is believed Camry is living, based on a mysterious postcard signed by the initial "F". As Luke sets out for Come Back Cove, he is in for the adventure of a lifetime in this interesting novel of space, time travel, magic, and romance. While not usually a genre I read A Highlander Christmas is filled with descriptive prose and delightful and at times eccentric characters. While not usually a genre I read, I did find this book to be This novel makes for a delightful evening of reading.

About the Author:

A native of rural central Maine, Janet Chapman lives there in a cozy log cabin on a lake with her husband. Three cats and a stray young bull moose keep them company. The author of the hugely popular Highlander time-travel series, she also writes contemporary romances.

I received a free copy of A Blue and Gray Christmas by Joan Medlicott from the publisher. Receiving a free copy in no way reflected my review of aforementioned novel.
