Review of Catriona

Jeanette Baker
Sourcebooks Casablanca
ISBN 9781402255861

   Kate Sutherland goes to her ancestral home in the Shetland Islands to scatter the remains of her deceased mother. She hopes to find some of her family and also cure her visions of danger and a sexy Scottish border lord. Instead, she discovers she has been living the tormented memories of Catriona Wells who lived five centuries before.
   Catriona is shielding a secret from her past and is willing to do anything to save her brother from the politics of their royal family. She even agrees to an arranged marriage to the Scottish border lord, Patrick MacKendrick. Will loving him destroy her family or will his love set her free?
   Meanwhile, Kate is battling a growing attraction to Niall MacCormack, a sexy Scottish historian. As the pull from her visions beckons her, will she decide on a love from the present or risk all for a life of passion and peril from the past?
   I absolutely loved this book. Not only does it have mystery, intrigue and romance, but it is set in my all time favorite place, Scotland. The author has woven together in a flawless fashion, a blend of the past and present for an irresistible read that draws you in from the beginning. As Kate travels back and forth in time through her dreams, she is drawn into a mystery in the past that has her falling for the Scottish laird. In the present, she has a growing attraction to the Scottish historian that she is trying to deny. To top it off, she gets drawn into secrets of her own past that makes the story even more mysterious and amazing. If you are a fan of romance, highlanders and Scotland, you will love this book. If you just like a good story, you will love this book.
   I wish to thank Sourcebooks for providing me with an ARC to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. I was not compensated in anyway except for receiving the book to review.

I give Catriona 5 out of 5 stars
