    One thought on “Highland Abbey”

    1. I've received a free advance copy of the book before it was released and I'm leaving this review voluntarily.2.5* Full review in Portuguese here: pepitamagica/2017/I’m sad to say that this book suffers from the same problems as the previous book, The Laird's Son. Although the plot was a bit better, it still needed development. It’s if when reaching a certain point in the story, the author just decides to wrap it up and end it as quickly as possible. It’s too bad, because I think it could h [...]

    2. Highland Abbey by Fiona McKellar (Author)⭐⭐⭐This could have been a fantastic story, but it's not like any historical romance I've read before, oh my this my first time reading this author and I'm sure I would read another book by her. The Highland Abbey had elements that I like. There are parts that just drew me in and I couldn't stop reading until I reached the end of it. It could have been a great story, but there are some very predictable parts. The story should be in the romance genre [...]

    3. Set years in the past and told in the slang of the land, this Scottish story was an interesting one. I liked the story, Sarah was in charge of the town play. During the performance a wealthy single guy gives her attention. How it effects everything made it interesting to read. Add in a jealous friend and a knight in shining armor and you have a story worth reading. I struggled a little with written word As it was not written as most books.

    4. I received a free copy from Hidden Gems; this is my honest review.I took off one star because the book is categorized 1820 Scottish Inspirational Historical Romance. There is nothing to let us think (no description of any kind) that it's either inspirational - certainly not the "what the hell" all over the book - or that the setting is in the 1820's. Also, the only historical element that is present is Jane Austen's book turned into a play in this story; nothing else is historical.Apart from all [...]

    5. A sweet -cute storyThis story concerns a young lady is the Chairman of the Club that puts on plays for the town. Her problem is her father rents their farm and have had enough bad things happen that the family is afraid they will lose their livelihood because of not being able to pay rent.

    6. I always love going back to the highlands of Scotland. This time was no different or was it. I had a few issues with cohesion and development. I was looking for a true historical read in the highlands of Scotland. There were good moments and then some that I just was not sure.

    7. Good storyline and well defined characters kept my interest from the very beginning until the very end!I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

    8. This is a fast paced story that is full of drama and secrecy. I liked the storyline, and Benjamin. Glenn is an egotistical jackass on and Sarah is very immature for her age. The ending is very sweet, and satisfying.

    9. All Sarah wants is to direct her drama on stage – not have drama in her life. But with a leading lady who wants it all, a lead man who gets his own way in everything in life and the reality of losing the family farm may be more than Sarah can bear.Sweet, short story by the up and coming Fiona McKellar. I look forward to reading more from her in the future.

    10. Publisher's Description:Nairn, Scotland, 1820As Sarah struggles to plan her version of Northanger Abbey with the local Nairn Drama Group, her best friend Tess wants the lead part, but that’s not all she wants.At the first audition, Tess shines and lands the role, opposite the wealthy, dashing and roguish Glenn Sinclair, a young man who attracts the eyes of every young lady in Nairn. Though charming, he also has a reputation for playing as many women as possible.As the rehearsals get under way, [...]

    11. Sweet, short story. The characters and plot could have been developed more because missing something. A nice read with a HEA.I voluntarily read and reviewed this as an ARC

    12. First time reading the author and i though she wrote a great highland story. Overall it was sweet romance with a little twist thrown. This is a stand alone with a HEA.

    13. I enjoyed this story from Fiona McKellar. A nice storyline with a wee twist.The storyline was well thought out and the characters well rounded.A nice touch at the end too.Well Done Fiona!

    14. A quick read and shows that you may not always seen what is right in front of you. Sarah is in charge of the town drama and she hopes to be successful because of Glenn Sinclair. His money and looks should bring in the people and their money to see the drama. Glenn's charms, her family's financial situation, the danger of losing her friend, and gossip threaten to change Sarah's life. I really enjoyed the ride.I received a copy of this story as a gift, and this is my unsolicited review.

    15. Short but enjoyableIt's rare you see a romance novel where the drama is believable instead of a wild mess. I thought it was cute although I didn't really like most of the characters, not because they weren't well written but because they didn't really have many redeeming qualities except for the hero. I'd recommend this book for a rainy afternoon.

    16. I received a copy of this book for an honest review.My heritage is Scottish and I grew up in the mountains of Appalachia which are rich in Highland Tradition. I love all things Scottish.That being said, I did not love this novella. I liked it well enough, but nothing about it really grabbed me. The language and tone are off, especially for 1820, and the story is abrupt and way too modern in its views to be a true representation of the time.It was an interesting read but not a great one.
