Book Review: Lady of Light by Kathleen Morgan

About the book:

Infused with the same warmth and excitement of the two previous books in her popular Brides of Culdee Creek series, Kathleen Morgan's third book tells Evan MacKay and Claire Sutherland's story.

Heartbroken at losing his first love to another man, Evan leaves Culdee Creek in hopes of forgetting her. When his searching heart brings him to his ancestral home of Scotland, he encounters a beautiful young woman who begins to fill the empty corners of his soul.

After a whirlwind courtship, the tempestuous lovers return to Culdee Creek ranch. But when their hopes and dreams are confronted by the realities and challenges of married live, will love be enough to keep them together?

My thoughts:

Kathleen's writing has such a charm and authentic feel to it that I can't help but like it. While there's not a lot in the story that is really historical per se, the old homes and other landmarks described pull you right back to the late 1800's. Also, her characters are all believable, each one having their own flaws and individuality. Even though the story was primarily about Evan and Claire, I found myself really enjoying Hannah's role in this book. If you've read the previous book in this series, you know Hannah's background and what occurred between her, Evan, and Devlin MacKay. While things could be awkward for Claire, Hannah quickly becomes her friend. She also gives Evan time to explain everything in their past, as painful as it will be.

Lady of Light is book 3 in the Brides of Culdee Creek Series. It's been awhile since I read the first two books in this series, and I was really afraid that I would just be lost the entire time when I started this book. Thankfully, I wasn't. Lady of Light, while book 3 in a 4-book series, easily can be read as a stand-alone novel.

  3. I have a few books by Kathleen Morgan and I have read the intros to this series so many times that I was actually convinced for a minute that I had read the book about Hannah! Maybe that means I'm reading too many books too quickly... I don't know. They are all getting mixed up in my brain. lol

    I'll have to add this series to my list for sure. That and about a thousand others ~ when I win the lottery. {wink}


I love your comments!! They make me happier than cold sweet tea on a hot summer day! :o)
