Janet Chapman - A Highlander Christmas

A Highlander Christmas
by Janet Chapman

Highlander Series Book Seven
November 2009

I'm a sucker for Janet Chapman! I can't help but simply love her books...All of them! There's just something about 'em :).

Camry, a rocket scientist like her mother, fears the magic that seems to inflict everyone in her family. After losing her job at NASA from stress and lack of focus, no thanks to another scientist in France, a man who questions one of her formulas through email and he just happens to be right, Camry flees and secrets herself away in the small coastal town of Go Back Cove.

Then a handsome stranger shows up, and Camry finds herself forced by the magic she fears to reevaluate her life. But Camry soon discovers that this stranger is not actually a stranger at all, but the very scientist whom Camry had the unfortunate pleasure of passing emails with--Lucian Renoir, or rather Luke Pascal. Camry and Luke realize that there's no point in fighting the magic, for Providence will have it's way.

When I pick up a Janet Chapman book I know I'm going to get something special. Something filled with magic and a sweetly sensual romance. I'm going to get two people falling in love with fun and witty dialogue along the way. And in A Highlander Christmas I got just that. This one is another of her wonderful Highlander novels Starring Camry MacKeage, one of the seven daughters of Greylen and Grace MacKeage who began this delightful series in Charming the Highlander.

Another lighthearted tale by Janet Chapman. Just right for this holiday season to brighten your day and warm your heart!

Hi Amy,
Sounds cute and it sure looks cute, a perfect book for the season :)
Hope you'll have a great week

Girl, you could make me believe in anything!
This does sound really cute and good! And I am not a big "holiday theme" book person, but this one sounds like I need to give it a try!
Hope you had a great weekend and have a wonderful Monday!

I just picked this up last night. I haven't read the series, so will reading it out of order be okay?

I've read a handful of books in her highlander series and really enjoyed the vibe of the books. I thought she stopped after book 5 but apparently she has continued *eek* Now I have to look in to it ;)

Hi Blodeuedd,
I think all her books are really great. And this one really was cute. A lot lighter than the previous ones, I think :).

Aww, shucks, Cecile :). It is a nice read if you want something light and fun and warm. No violence! And I love that about her books. There's no violence. Occasionally there might be a fight or two, but nothing serious, you know?

Hi Anna,
Isn't it a cute cover? With the little Dachshund! Very Christmasy :)

Hi J. Kaye,
Hmmm, that's always a tough question for me to answer :). I've read all her books so I know who's who when they are mentioned from one book to the next and their backstory, but I would say that no, you shouldn't need to read any before this one if you didn't want to. I think it stands on its own just fine. There is just reference to several other characters that have had their own books, but the story line itself is its own :).

Hi Leontine,
If you read the first five, the sixth one is Megan MacKeage's book, Secrets of the Highlander. And then this one. I think all her books, even her contemporaries all have that same vibe in them, and for me, they are always just right :). I don't think I could find myself disappointed with one of her books. I like some better than others, but I do still like them all. They seem to all have a nice steady flow to them!

I love having authors you can depend on and know your going to get a wonderful read. Thanks for the heads up on this one. :)

Ooh, I have this one sitting in my pile right now-- along with most of the other books in this series. I agree with you-- you just can't resist her books, they're always so good, a nice romantic read anytime. :D

I'm looking forward to reading this one!

Hi Amy, I love the MacKeages! I have them all! But still need to read two parts! This one sounds great again, I like Janet Chapman's writing.

Aw, sounds sweet, I haven't read a Christmas based story in a long while, my book budget is so going to be more than I planned, lol!

Thanks for a great review!
