After waiting far too long, I finally made time to read 'Mackenzie's Cross' and I am so very glad I did.

It took me way too long to pick this ...more

But, when the Duke is murdered, secrets are revealed... and her life suddenly becomes complicated. It's up to her to right wrongs and accept her new life with a new destiny. This book will appeal to a variety of readers. Technically, it's a young adult historical fiction book. But, there's also intrigue, mystery, adventure... ...more

Received from Historical Fiction Virtual tour for an honest review.

The writing was easy and flowed. It was a story that captured my attention from the very beginning. I love stories where there is a great mixture of history, romance, adventure and mystery. I enjoyed this story and the characters. You can't go wrong readin

Girls! This book is amazing. I mean, like there are no parts that drag. This author is putting out some serious work. To read Sarah's interview visit my website. I loved the fact that Mackenzie was so realistic, and the characters had personality plus. I don't want to give away the good parts, but this book received an award, and for good reason.
