"fast paced story of magic & mystery"
Michaela is a young woman suffering from a brain aneurysm
who wants one last adventure before her death. She chooses
a vacation to Scotland, hoping to get a sighting of the
Loch Ness Monster. Instead she finds two brothers, Alan and
Hyatt, who have a long and close connection with "Nessie."
During her stay in Scotland, Michaela and Alan begin to
fall in love, something Michaela does not want since she
does not have much longer to live. But when several
gruesome murders occur in the small village where she is
staying, Michaela, Alan and Hyatt have to work together to
catch a killer. And all the evidence points to the Loch
Ness Monster as the killer.
This was a very good reinterpretation of the Loch Ness
Monster story. I had never come across one before and this
was a pleasant surprise. The characters are very well
written and the story is fast paced right from the
beginning. Also, the mystery part of the story is very
good. I thought I knew who the "mystery shifter" was and it
was a pretty big surprise when it was revealed. I thought I
had it figured out about half way through, then found out I
was totally wrong with the reveal. I am hoping this is the
beginning of a series because there are several other
characters besides Michaela and Alan who deserve a happy
