14 Sep 2013: This book is the audible.com daily deal today; just $4.95. At that price, I think I'll give it another try. Also, the incomparable Rosalyn Landor narrates.
2 March 2012: I'm surprised to find that I'm rather "meh" about this book. From reading all of the reviews on GR and elsewhere, I expected more. It's a sweet story with amusing banter between Jamie and Alec, but there's really no drama. The whole murder plot is very underplayed and neatly resolved. I suppose I've come to expect something a little darker when reading about Highland Lairds.
