Review: A Highlander In Her Past (MacKay Clan #3) by Maeve Greyson

Book Blurb

How bad could one little spell be?

Trish Sullivan, archeologist and favorite aunt to the MacKay children, never thought she'd regret those words until Ramsay, the eldest MacKay lad, hurls them back to the 1400s with a botched transportation spell. Now she and Ramsay must find a way back before accidentally altering the past and unknowingly changing the future. That is, if Trish can survive the first trip across time without losing her life...or her heart.

What harm could come from a little soul-binding?

Proving his Highland honor alive and well, Maxwell Sullivan agrees to bind his soul to Trish's in order to save her life. But Highland honor isn't much help when Maxwell loses his heart in the bargain to the sassy woman headed back to the future.

Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

Trish is visiting her best friend Nessa and her favorite children in the world. When she arrives the curtain climbers are in hot water for trying to time travel. Nothing like blowing off part of the roof to make your parents extremely angry.

Ramsay wants to try the spell again and talks Trish into letting him return her to her room. She eventually gives in thinking what would it hurt. Famous last words when she and Ramsay end up in her room six hundred years in the past.

She wakes up in the presence of Maxwell Sinclair and the McKay clan. She is not doing well. Her body didn’t handle the travel back in time well. There is fear that she won’t survive as Ramsay and his cousin Keegan search for a spell to send them back to their time.

This story was too short. I would have loved to read more and watch the characters develop more. Trish has a lot of spirit and sass. I wanted to see more of her stay in the past and her interactions with Maxwell. I felt a bit cheated in that respect. I liked the storyline and love the time travel idea. The author’s idea of how to do it and the actual act was fascinating. The forceful winds and environmental changes were exactly how I would picture it.

The characters were entertaining. Maxwell fell for Trish and accepted everything about her. Definitely a refreshing character trait for a man of any time period. The ending actually brought tears when Trish would sit and watch the stone. It was heartbreaking. So I was invested even though the story was short. I give it a 4 out of 5.
