And a reader favorite...A Mackenzie Clan Gathering
The Mackenzie clan has gathered for Hart's birthday at the sprawling family estate in Scotland. But before the festivities can start, the house is robbed, and thieves make off with an untold fortune in rare art.
Ian Mackenzie and his brothers must do what they can to retrieve the family treasure, but Ian is distracted by a family friend who claims he might have the power to "cure" Ian of his madness forever. All the Mackenzies must draw together as courage, love, and a tantalizing mystery serve to strengthen their bond, and redefine the meaning of family.
A Makenzie Yuletide
The Mackenzie clan is gathering for Christmas at Kilmorgan Castle. Not everyone has arrived but there is about half of the family in residence when Mac Mackenzie thinks he sees a ghost. Some think he’s just tired but other, mostly the children, want to find the ghost and figure out who it is and where it goes. Loving chaos ensues and the fun, funny and loving family joins together to figure out the mystery.
Then there’s Ian who has found the perfect gift for his wife, but discovers that the necklace has been stolen and is now missing. He’s determined to find it – as are his children which makes things a bit crazy.
I liked this novella a lot but wanted it to be longer. This family always makes me smile, especially Ian, and I wanted more. The original brothers feature in this story, but their kids put in an appearance as well and I loved seeing how they’ve all turned out. Seeing their parent’s influence on their personalities was a thing of beauty as well. 😊
Overall a great story. Even if you’ve read the second novella in this book I think it’s worth getting just to read this story.
4 out of 5
I read A Mackenzie Clan Gathering back in 2015 and really enjoyed it. Unfortunately, I didn’t think it really held up over time. Still good, but apparently not the type of novella that can be read multiple times. You can read my original review here.
This time I’d give it a 3.25 out of 5
This brings the overall book total to somewhere around a 3.5.
