#BookReview ~ Blue Belle (Wildflowers of Scotland, #3) by Sherrie Hansen #Romance @SherrieHansen

Blue Belle
 (Wildflowers of Scotland, #3)
 By Sherrie Hansen

Isabelle doesn't want to be found. Michael doesn't want to be found out. When Damon starts searching for the centuries-old gold he thinks is buried at Tobermory Bay, it won't matter what walls they are hiding behind. Rocks will fall. Castles will crumble. No secret will be safe. Age-old castles and blue-watered bays; white sandy beaches and quaint cottage stays; a rainbow of colors, and chocolates-hand dipped; a valley of bluebells, and sheep-freshly clipped. Legends galore, buried treasure and more . . . in Tobermory, Scotland, that's what's in store.

The Coffee Pot Book Club Review

Isabelle thought she had it all. A successful career, good friends, a loving boyfriend. Only it was an illusion. Her boyfriend was, in fact, a con-artist, and he now has intimate pictures of her that he threatens to expose to her family, her work colleges, and her friends. With her perfect life in shatters, Isabelle escapes to the Isle of Mull in Scotland. Here she hopes to recover from her terrible ordeal and start again.

When Michael St Dawndalyn first met Isabelle, he knew that something terrible had happened to her. Years working as a psychiatrist meant that he saw people as they really were. If only he could offer her his help, but like Isabelle, Michael is running from the past, and it is just a matter of time before that past catches up with him.

But that is not all. Strange and dangerous things are going on in Mull. If Isabelle thought her con-artist boyfriend was trouble, he is nothing compared to what she has to face in this seemingly quite island. She needs to keep her head, if she is going to come out of this adventure alive.

Oh, My Days!! Blue Belle (Wildflowers of Scotland, #3) by Sherrie Hansen was a gripping story that I thoroughly enjoyed. I loved the characterisation of both Isabella and Michael. The characters were well-rounded and more importantly believable. I really felt for Isabelle. She had been through hell, and yet she does her very best to carry on. Likewise, I loved Michael's integrity and how he would not back down even in the face of strong opposition.

The story itself was fast-paced, and once I started reading, I did not want to stop. There is intrigue, danger, romance, and so much more. A great story.

I Highly Recommend.

Twenty-five years ago, Sherrie Hansen rescued a dilapidated Victorian house in northern Iowa from the bulldozer's grips and turned it into a bed and breakfast and tea house, the Blue Belle Inn. Sherrie grew up on a farm in southern Minnesota and has lived in Bar Harbor, Maine, Colorado Springs, CO, and Augsburg, Germany. She attended Wheaton College, Wheaton, IL.

After 12 years of writing romance novels late at night when she couldn't sleep (mostly because she was so keyed up from working 12 hour days at the B&B), she met and married her real-life hero, Mark Decker, a pastor. Sherrie lives in 2 different houses, 85 miles apart, and writes on the run whenever she has a spare minute. With her Wildflowers of Scotland novels, "Wild Rose", "Blue Belle", "Shy Violet", "Sweet William" and "Golden Rod", she has ten books in print, most featuring a "second-chance-at-love" story. Sherrie enjoys playing the piano with the worship team at church, photography, decorating historic homes, traveling, and going on weekly adventures with her nieces and nephew.
