an antique store in Boston. While preparing for the Christmas
season, she learns of the death of her longtime friend, Tavish
MacLean. Tavish leaves her everything, including a puzzle box
that holds quite a surprise.
Sir Cameron MacLeod is preparing for
battle with a rival clan in 1745. Before leaving, he visits
his adoptive mother, well known through the region for her
powers. The next thing he knows heís standing naked in a
strange place, and in front of a strange, but beautiful,
Claireís not sure what to make of the
handsome highlander who appears from the puzzle box. They set
out to try and find a way to send him back to his own time.
But after studying books and consulting with witches, they
know that heís stuck in 2007. He has lots of things to come to
terms with: the fact that bucks arenít always deer, and the
fact heís falling in love with Claire.
A Highlander for Christmas
is a touching, sweet story. Ms. Blair has drawn wonderful
characters. I could feel their pain over the situation in
which they found themselves. I could also feel the love grow
between them. Camís adjustments to modern day life brought
more than a few laughs. And their love for each other brought
quite a few smiles. A Highlander for Christmas
is a great read, at any time of the year.
