Magnolia-Glen

About:

1792, Natchez Trace, MS
Bitter since his eldest brother abandoned their family in Ireland, Quinn O’Shea travels to Natchez, Mississippi, ready to shuck the weight of his duty and set off on an adventure of his own. It’s time Connor, as head of the family, took responsibility for their younger siblings. While aboard ship, a run-in with three Irish sisters lands Quinn in the role of reluctant savior. Though it may delay his plans, he cannot abandon the Young sisters, especially the tenacious yet kind Kiera.

Upon arriving in the colonies, Kiera Young prepares to meet her intended and begin her new life. But she soon discovers the marriage her brother-in-law arranged was never meant to be, and a far more sinister deal was negotiated for her and her sisters.

Quinn offers to escort his charges safely to Breeze Hill Plantation and his brother’s care, fully intending to seek his freedom elsewhere. But the longer he remains, the greater his feelings toward Kiera grow and the more he comes to realize true freedom might be found in sacrifice.

Includes discussion questions.

My thoughts:

This was a great second book in this series.

Kiera is a strong character, determined to do what is needed to keep her sisters safe.

Quinn is a wonderfully stubborn hero who has his plans while God has another.

I could easily see the Genesis 5020 stories in the character’s lives. What the enemy could have used for harm God uses for good.

I also enjoyed meeting up with characters from the first book…well, not all the characters. Some of them are truly evil.

I kept waiting for something bad to happen, you knew it was coming it was just a matter of time.

I did feel the first almost kiss was a bit rushed. I didn’t feel the moment at all. But when it came time for the actual kiss, that one I felt was the right timing.

Have no fear if you haven’t read the first book, you can still thoroughly enjoy this one.
