Summary

It Happened in the Highlands is the next audiobook in the new historical Highland series The Penningtons, from USA Today best seller May McGoldrick.... 

Lady Josephine Pennington was jilted by her fiancé once rumors spread about her questionable origins. Her adoptive parents have always provided her with the love and protection she’s needed to feel secure, and over the last 16 years she’s molded herself to meet the expectations of others. When she receives a package containing sketches where the subject is eerily familiar, Jo believes she might have found a clue to the identity of her birth mother. 

When Captain Wynne Melfort ended his engagement to Jo Pennington 16 years ago, he never imagined he would see her again. But after he uncovers information that could reveal the truth about Jo's parentage, Wynne feels bound by duty to right an old wrong and inform her of his find. He didn’t expect for feelings long thought dead to resurface, for in his mind a love departed was gone forever.

As they strive to unravel the mystery of her birth, Jo must learn how to trust the man who’d once rejected her and Wynne must reconcile his head with his heart. But as secrets of the past begin to surface, evil forces will stop at nothing to keep Jo from uncovering the truth and reclaiming her legacy. Together, Jo and Wynne must fight the deadly menace lurking deep in the Highland mists.

A treasure

I didn’t want this book to end and am so happy that Phoebe will be next!! I know by reading all of May McGoldrick’s books I will get to revisit past characters. Plus - please don’t have anyone else narrate these books but Saskia Maarleveld. She is phenomenal! One of my top readers - she makes all the characters come to life!
Don’t miss this one!

Heart warming characters with intricate plot.

Characters are real and infectious. The pace & timing of the story line is engaging causing the reader to be reluctant to pause listening. Just enough steam to keep it authentic.

Couldn't put it down

Kind of a different take on a money hungry family. Jo was a very strong personality. The narration was good, too. I look forward to any sequences.
