Let an eclectic group of friends and family keep you spellbound in this sensuous, eye-misting, mixed genre novel with flavors of women's fiction, literary fiction, and romance (paranormal and romantic suspense) set in Scotland, a Thoroughbred farm in the Bluegrass Region of Kentucky, and California's wine country. The characters are strong, independent, and wealthy.
This is a stand-alone book that continues the story of Kit MacKlenna's godfather, Elliott Fraser, who was introduced in THE RUBY BROOCH.
As the first female president of her family's 160-year-old Napa, California winery, Meredith Montgomery has her hands full with workplace problems, a nosy reporter, and launching a new wine when a tragedy from her past catches up with her again. She takes refuge in Scotland for a working holiday where she meets Thoroughbred breeder Elliott Fraser, CEO of MacKlenna Farm in Lexington, Kentucky. Although she tries to keep her distance and focus on work, the sexy Scotsman distracts her with dinner invitations and a trip to his family's castle in the Highlands. After a life-altering night together, a crisis on the farm pulls Elliott back to the Bluegrass. When Meredith accepts his offer to stop for a visit on her way back to California, the first domino falls in an explosive chain of events that could threaten not only their hearts but their lives. One careless moment confronts them with a life or death decision that could destroy the MacKlenna family legacy forever. (Add to your cart now )
The Last MacKlenna is a great romantic read. You can't help but ooh and ah at the wealth that surrounds strong leads Elliott and Meredith. Lowry Logan elegantly and purposefully gives her readers a great taste of Meredith's life as president of her family-owned vineyard and Elliott's in the high powered world of thoroughbred race horses. These two broken souls fall deeply in love and we root hard for them to overcome their many obstacles. And I would be remiss if I didn't add that this novel comes complete with a gripping mystery--one that will make your heart pound. Along for Meredith and Elliott's journey are a fine group of quirky, strong and loyal characters. The Last MacKlenna is first in Romance.
When I first approached Logan's work, I expected to be confronted by a star-trekky series of superficial, time-travel inventions that are ten a penny and simply don't appeal to me at all. How wrong I was. In reality, I found a writer of ingenuity, with a depth of understanding of the human condition and the ability to share it with the reader that far exceeded my expectations. Yes--I have to admit it; that exceeded my expectations of a modern woman and an American woman at that.
Her two novels to date, The Ruby Brooch and The Last MacKlenna, both of which I've read and hugely enjoyed, explore the lives of two women, Kit MacKlenna and Meredith Montgomery both of whom face worlds of adversity and come through them thanks to a mixture of such determination and, it has to be said, pig-headedness, that the reader is drawn into their lives and wants them to succeed.
Their men, Cullen Montgomery and Elliot Fraser, are developed with a deftness of touch that I once again consider exceptional in a female writer. I feel that Logan is a writer to be read, enjoyed and admired, and having found her voice in her work to date, may well produce a contemporary novel of lasting significance. I shall look forward to that.
