Cathy Maxwell has written some miss-and-hit books, but this one really impressed me! It's fantastically plotted and I empathize with the characters so much! Zero complaints!

This has been a wonderful book to bring me back into reading HR...full review to come. :)

I've given this an A for narration and a C+ for content at AudioGals

This is the final book in Cathy Maxwell’s Brides of Wishmore trilogy, but I don’t think it’s necessary to have listened to the previous books in order to understand or enjoy this one. The Groom Says Yes boasts a fairly straightforward story with an added touch of mystery concerning the threat to the hero, and both central characters are likeable and well-matched, but I suspect that had I read it rather than listened to it, I’d

Cormac Enright, Earl of Bellin sat in a prison awaiting his execution for a crime he knew he didn’t commit! Cormac had not been a saint, but harm a young woman - never! He wanted to refuse the preacher that came to his cell - a man who was about to help him escape, until he learned the reverend had been sent as an emissary from Robert Davidson, the man who had originally testified to his guilt!

2.5 out of 5 stars.

In theory this book should have met my tastes more than it did, since it was a historical romance with a murder mystery and adventure. It began strongly as Cormac is rescued from his execution date by a reverend working on behalf of those who wrongfully perjured themselves during Cormac’s trial for murder. The escape from prison does not go as planned, but it does leave him knowledgeable of a few facts about who he must speak to and where he must travel to in order to clear hi

Cathy Maxwell y su tercer libro en una trilogía, fue una de esas sorpresas que vienen vestidas en ofertas por la internet. No recuerdo haber leído nada de Cathy Maxwell con anterioridad, pero desde ahora tiene mi voto. Su novela: The Groom Says Yes, es acerca de segundas oportunidades para mas de una persona. El tono es humorístico y los personajes son fáciles de crear en la imaginación de la lectora, ademas si en algún momento te disgustan, se redimen mas adelante en el proceso de la novela.

3.75 stars. This is a book I should have loved and hadn’t it been for some significant niggles, this would have been a 5 star book for me.

On the eve of his hanging for a crime he didn’t commit Cormac Enright (Mac) is granted a reprieve when Reverend Kinnion, on behalf of Richard Davidson, orchestrates Mac’s escape and takes a bullet for his trouble. Told to leave the country, Mac instead heads to Kenmore to confront Davidson. Though Davidson helped him escape, it was his testimony that convicted

A sensual, suspense-filled historical romance! Actually rated 4.5! Taken from my review at RomanceJunkies.com:

The night before he is scheduled to hang for a murder he did not commit, Cormac ‘Mac’ Enright, dubbed the Irish Murderer, is rescued by a reverend. Claiming to be an emissary for Richard Davidson, who originally testified against Mac, the reverend makes him promise that he will leave Scotland and not come back. However, they are betrayed by the guard who has taken coin to help them and M

Good conclusion to the series. Mac Enright is in prison awaiting execution for a murder he didn't commit. When he escapes, he's determined to find the man whose false testimony convicted him. He arrives in Aberfeldy but falls ill before he can find the man he's searching for.

Sabrina is the spinster daughter of Mac's quarry. She has spent her life caring for her sick mother, then her widowed father. She's very conscious of doing the right thing, unlike her rather scandalous cousins Aileen (The Br

Sabrina Davidson took a chance by rescuing Cormac Enright and while she may have hesitated at her decision she never regretted it. Mac was near death when she brought him to her father’s home, the place she thought of hers as well until she discovered her father was about to marry a horrid widow who was going to ruin everything in Sabrina’s neatly contained life. When Sabrina decides to take the near unconscious Mac as her lover little did she realize that her attempt to become uncommon would pu ...more

Every so often a book comes along that I have to remind myself that I promised that I would give my 100% honest feedback. This is one of those stories and unfortunately I was not very fond of it but I must be true to my promise and say so.

I liked reading this book because of the interesting plot line, characterization of people and of course the romance. If you have read the other two books, this one was my favorite. The hero Mac Enright was held in a prison after he was accused as the culprit by a man named Robert Davidson. So when Mac is broken out of prison, he is free to begin his search for the answers of why him.
Then Mac finds himself in the company of Sabrina Davidson. She doesn't seem to believe Mac because her Father wo

Not at all what I would expect from Cathy Maxwell. I normally love historical novels with a bit of mystery thrown in but this was not what the reviews would lead you to believe.

The heroine at the beginning was just tstl and it went down from there. Not much of a mystery at all.

But then he is aided to escape and even though he could leave the country and start a new life he just wants to be cleared of all charges and find the real murderer. And he has a name, the name of the man who bore testimony against him in court, Robert Davidson. So Mac goes in searching for Davidson, in wanting justice and a d

The hero is a convicted felon, sentenced to hang for a murder he didn't commit. At the last minute a minister comes to help him escape but instead of leaving Scotland, he heads off to ask the main witness why he lied. The witness is the heroine's father. She is upset because she has just been informed that her father is on the verge of marrying again and has even given the hussy the ring her mother had promised her. She fights with her father and he runs off, not because of the fight, but becaus ...more

This is the third book in the Brides of Wishmore series. This story follows Sabrina, cousin to Tara and Aileen. Sabrina finds a sick man in a little shack nearby and brings him home. There's a bit of a complication because this man came looking for Sabrina's father who supposedly witnessed Mac murder a young woman. Bit of a mystery in finding her father and figuring out if Mac is truely a murderer. Cute story and just as enjoyable as the previous books.

This was a lovely story set in Scotland in the 1800s. It has a funny heroine who is a 'bluestocking' and discovers love from an irishman on the run from the gallows. Of course, he is falsely accused. But, the twist is that her father and uncle are the ones who did the accusing, and are somehow still the semi-good guys.

Another boat book. I always take something to read while my husband is fishing. The plot has to be good, but I have to be able to tear myself away if the fish are biting. This romance fit the bill. It was fun and had a bit of mystery, but I didn't crash the boat by trying to read and steer at the same time.

I enjoyed the spunky heroine and the hero who was both strong and loving... they were a cute couple. Unlike most romance books, they didn't let stupid misunderstandings get in the way. Instead they worked together to solve a mystery.

Meh. Another I picked up because of the narrator (Mary Jane Wells); I knew nothing else of it, and it's the third in a series. It had a promising premise (falsely accused escaped convict seeks to clear his name; the heroine is the daughter of one of those involved in framing him), but the heroine makes a lot of nonsensical decisions and is loyal to her horrible father and uncle to a gigantic fault with absolutely no motivation. Her uncle was a constant drunk and I'm not sure if he was meant to b ...more
