Saving Grace (Enchanted Keepsakes, #1) by Aubrey Wynne
Saving Grace: (Enchanted Keepsakes) - Aubrey Wynne

Saving Grace by Aubrey Wynne is book one of Enchanted Keepsakes series. It is a very shot book, but has a lot of stuff crammed in on those pages. I don't say this as a bad thing. You actually are getting dual stories. The 2nd part of the story is taken from the history books. 



Present day, Divorcee Chloe Hicks is trying to get on with her life and started a horse stable in Shawneetown Illinois. With just her trainer, her mother, and herself they are on the brink of making a profit, when in the middle of the night the barn mysteriously catches fire. After loosing her favorite horse, herself and her trainer almost loosing their life, her abusive ex-husband shows back up. When Chloe refuses to step back into that situation her ex starts spreading rumors. Chloe's Mom thinks she needs to get away for a while. So she heads off to Virginia Beach for some R & R. 


Grace Sherwood "The witch of Pungo" Is a true story. It really happened in the 1700's in Colonial Virginia. Grace lived in the small town of Pungo Virginia. In 1706 she was accused and convicted of being a witch. She had a trial and was sentenced to what was called a docking. The person would be cross tied, right thumb to left big toe and left thumb to right big toe. If the person floated they were deemed a witch, if they drowned they were innocent. Grace was able to get a hand free and did not drown. She was tossed under twice and survived. She was then jailed. She was released around 1714, and died in 1740. There are statues of her in Virginia to this day. She was also pardoned in 2006 on the 300th anniversary of her docking by the Virginia State Governor Timothy Kaine.


When Chloe arrives in Virginia Beach, strange things happen. She sees a lady in Colonial clothing, she is covered one night with a blanket, things along those lines. But when her Ex shows up with a gun the true help comes from the Afterlife as Grace helps Chloe escape certain death.


The Audiobook is narrated by Sara K. Sheckells. I felt she done and excellent job with this book. She kept my attention and kept the story line flowing nicely. I enjoyed the voices for the different characters. And the feeling she gave parts of the story was awesome. I will be looking for more books narrated by her. 


I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Aubrey Wynne. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Taking chances leads to happiness
Enchanted by the Highlander (A Highland Fairytale) - Lecia Cornwall

Gillian is a misunderstood woman. I enjoyed her infinite patience with her family as well as her curiosity and love for nature's beauty. Her talents were surprising, but it just showed how strong she really was. I was drawn to John because of his selflessness in helping others without needing recognition. The two complimented and surprised each other which made this a fun read for me.

I received a copy of this story through Netgalley, and this is my unsolicited review.

A fun and light read recommended to lovers of fairy tales and Scottish-themed adventures
Enchanted by the Highlander (A Highland Fairytale) - Lecia Cornwall

Thanks to NetGalley and to St. Martin’s Press/Swerve, for providing me with an ARC copy of this novel that I freely chose to review.

I love fairy tales. Although probably Beauty and the Beast is my favourite, I have a soft spot for most classics. I also love the Scottish Highlands (I’ve visited two or three times but I hope I will visit again in the future). When I saw this book, which combined a retelling of Cinderella with a setting in the Highlands, I could not resist (I also liked the cover).

This is book 4 in A Highland Fairytale series, but it can be read as a standalone (I haven’t read any of the other books in the series). The story is told in the third person from different characters points of view, but there is no head-hopping and the changes in perspective are clearly marked. The novel is set in the XVII century and tells the story of is Gillian, a young girl daughter of Donal, the laird of the MacLeod’s clan, quiet and shy, whose father and sisters think will never get married (although she is very pretty but too quiet to make herself noticed). Quiet waters and all that, because Gillian has dreams and wants to marry for love. While visiting one of the sisters, she meets an Englishman who is Captain of her brother-in-law’s men, John Erly, and although he has no fortune to his name and a terrible reputation, she discovers there is more to him than people think and falls in love with him. At a masquerade ball, they kiss (he is not wearing much of a disguise but he does not know who she is) and she loses her mask. Despite the effect she has on him, nothing happens and she goes back home. A few months later she is engaged to get married to an old nobleman (older than her father) as her family is convinced she wants a quiet life and an old husband is just the ticket for her. Somehow, John ends up escorting her to Edinburgh with a full complement of Highlanders… And the rest, well, you’ll need to read the book to know.

I don’t want to rehash the plot or reveal any spoilers. As this is a romance and a fairy tale, you can imagine how things end up from the beginning, but the beauty is in the details. Gilliam is far from the wilting violet everybody mistakes her for, and John isn’t the rogue others think either. They go through many adventures, including being assaulted by outlaws, a wedding that is ruined, numerous suitors, fights and perils, a competition to obtain Gillian’s hand in marriage, secrets, confessions, and plenty of Highland traditions, expressions, songs, whisky, and a fair amount of fun (and romance). Of course, it is a fairy tale, so it does require a deal of suspension of disbelief, but both main characters are likeable, and most of the secondary characters are great too (even if we don’t get to know them as well, they provide light relief and liven up the action).

The retelling of Cinderella is limited to the mask and the ball, as the circumstances of the character are quite different (she is beloved by her family even if they don’t understand her true feelings) and what happens later bears no resemblance to the story, but is an enjoyable romp. There is plenty of action and humour, there is violence, there are also scary moments, and a couple of erotic scenes (they are quite mild but I would have enjoyed the book more without them as I’m not a big fan. Especially the first one felt particularly unrealistic, and I know I’m talking about a sex scene in a fairy tale, but for me, it did stretch credibility more than the rest of the book). The writing is in keeping with the story, easy and fairly dynamic, at times reminding me of the serials of old, like the Perils of Pauline, where there is a never-ending amount of trouble waiting for the heroine (who luckily is pretty resourceful).

A fun and light read recommended to lovers of fairy tales and Scottish-themed stories, who enjoy adventures galore and don’t mind some violence and a bit of sex.

Review For: Enchanted by the Highlander by Lecia Cornwall
Enchanted by the Highlander (A Highland Fairytale) - Lecia Cornwall

Enchanted by the Highlander by Lecia Cornwall is Book Four in the "A Highland Fairy Tale" Series. This is the story of Gillian MacLeod and John Erly. I have read the other books in this series (and loved them) but feel this can be a standalone book.
Donal MacLeod has loved all his wives and all his daughters but they do try to out smart him sometimes. Gillian is the shyest and quietest one of the family. Gillian seems to prefer to listing along with watching others. Gillian family has taken it among themselves to talk, think and answer for her leaving Gillian without a voice really. But Gillian does dream of having the relationship her sister's have with their husbands. Gillian is warned away from John who is an outsider to Scotland and only been there a few years. Everyone goes to John when they need something and counts on him but he is still thought of as an outsider. John was the son of a Noble Englishman but was disowned by his father and started a new life in Scotland. One night Gillian and John steal a kiss at a masquerade ball where they both are strongly affected by the kiss. But John didn't know who Gillian was and wasn't able to find her and almost a year passed since that kiss. But when John is asked to escort Gillian to a man that is to be her husband he starts to learn that it was Gillian who gave him that kissed. But along they way to their destination they run into danger and that makes for them to have more time together.
Really enjoyed their story!
