A Girl. A Ghost. A Castle. A Hot Laird.
I thought I’d revisit GIRL IN THE CASTLE to remind myself how much I loved writing it. While I was over on Amazon I re-read readers’ reviews and thought I would share a couple with you.
Are you sitting comfortably? Then I’ll begin . . .
“She has a unique gift for creating settings and dialogue that capture Scottish colour, language, humour, and beauty, while realistically including the cold, the rain, and the chill of an ancient castle on a remote island. As someone who has not only lived in Scotland, but also in a medieval castle, I think she’s absolutely nailed that one.”
“Oh my goodness! I read this book to myself with a Scottish accent (I’m from Manchester). What a great setting, a castle with its own moat, Henriette is a historian with a doctorate using all her girl power to rebuild her career and reputation following a misunderstanding. Enter hero Keir, the heir of the castle. Initially, Henri was warned off him by a potential bride he was promised to. Henri was not bothered at the time, she was too busy being good at her job in the library. Will romance get the better of her? Any more would be a spoiler. Like I said, great setting, Scottish dialogue feeds into the castle image. I enjoyed it.“

Sail across Loch Linnhe to Castle Stalker, the inspiration behind Girl in the Castle
I ‘stumbled’ across Castle Stalker a few years ago when we were touring the highlands. Upon learning that the owner conducted tours of the castle during the summer months we signed up. He brought his launch over to the shore and ferried us over to the castle. I was so excited that I nearly fell overboard into Loch Linnhe. Returning two years later I was able to present him with a copy of Girl in The Castle as a thank you for inspiring me to write such a wonderful love story.
The blurb, quotes and some pictures to encourage you to download Girl in the Castle at this time-limited price.

“A gorgeous hero in Keir Mackenzie and a brilliantly created cast, including cantankerous ferryman and manservant, Lachlan, whose spats with Aunt Alice, the housekeeper, had me, at times, in stitches, bring the story alive. I could picture the scenes so well.”
My favourite part in the novel is when Henriette says to Keir – I WISNAE PUSHED, I DIDNAE SHOVE. I JUST MET YOU AND FELL IN LOVE
