The Devil's Heart by Cathy Maxwell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I confess: I read this trilogy out of order. I picked this one up at Target while scanning the shelves for a Scottish historical. Had never heard of Cathy Maxwell, so I bought it completely on spec. I was pleasantly surprised. I liked the characters and story very much, especially the paranormal elements--witches, curses, disappearing cats. Of course, I write paranormal romances with witches, curses, and shapeshifting faeries, so . . .
Anyway, I finished reading this about a week before attending the national RWA conference here in Atlanta. To my delight, Cathy Maxwell was the keynote speaker! And the first book in the series, LYON'S BRIDE, was on the chairs at the luncheon. I bought book two, THE SCOTTISH WITCH (and had it signed), from Cathy herself at the booksigning event.
I've now read all three and loved them all. So, really glad I picked up this book! I think Cathy does an excellent job of giving her characters motivation and depth. Thanks, Cathy, for an entertaining read.
