Mistress MacKintosh And The Shaw Wretch by Rose Prendeville


Mistress MacKintosh And The Shaw Wretch is a fun, quick, romantic journey that left me smiling.  Finley Shaw, the disgraced heir to his older brother, is tasked with escorting Jury to a convent.  Jury has dedicated her life to healing and has no intention of being a wife or a nun.  Finn and Jurys set out on a road trip to the convent fraught with danger, passion, and runaways.

Both Finn and Jury are lovable, warm, sparkling characters.  Both are atoning for past decisions.  I loved the journey of Finn and Jury finding kindred spirits and a passionate connection.  The story unfolded in a way that developed the characters well and was easy to read.  There were a few times the flow of the story wavered.  However, the plot was entertaining and kept my interest.  I loved the dialogue between Finn and Jury; their verbal battles were fun to read.  Mistress MacKintosh And The Shaw Wretch is the first book in the Brides Of Chattan series.  Rose Prendeville has done an amazing job creating characters I cared about and a story I couldn’t put down.  This is an excellent start to a promising series.

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book through Netgalley and the publisher.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.
