Review: Highland Jewel by May McGoldrick

Maisie Murray’s sweet, docile exterior masks the courageous spirit of a firebrand determined to champion women’s suffrage with like-minded friends. But fighting for her principles has swept her directly into harm’s way—and into the arms of a man she cannot resist.

A trained officer with the Royal Highland Regiment, Niall Campbell has spent his life serving the Crown. Battle-weary and searching for peace, he nothing to do with trouble—until he meets Maisie. But unless Niall and Maisie can find a way to stand up to the destructive forces that threaten to divide them, long-buried secrets and political schemes are destined to stand in the way of the glorious love they’ve found…


I would like to start by thanking Netgalley and St. Martins Press for providing us with a copy of this book so that we could bring you this review.

I loved that Maisie is such a strong woman and beyond progressive for her time. She is not afraid to stand up for what she believes in and do what is right, even if it is looked at as wrong for that time period. Niall is a man that is on the cusp of making a decision, he just isn’t sure on what way to go. The tough thing is that he is pinned between what he thinks is right, and his loyalty for his sister. He too is a strong character, but its hard to see him battle himself so much. It takes someone as strong as Maisie to help him see things differently. I enjoyed the fact that we got what was going on with Maisie while her sister dealt with her own things (back from Isabell’s book) and how we got to where we were. Its very enjoyable to have a parallel book without feeling like you are rereading what already happened.

I gave this book 5 kisses.

Happy Reading… Adri
