Review: Riding the Thunder

Riding the Thunder
by Deborah MacGillivray

A Storm's Coming...It was all part of the plan. While his brother was in Scotland dethroning the Lady of Falgannon, Jago Mershan was headed to Kentucky. There he would do his share in avenging his father on the Montgomeries. Only, there was a monkey wrench in the works.

Just looking at his alleged enemy's granddaughter made Jago think of his classic black '67 Harley Electra Glide, a motorcycle with clean lines and sleek curves that promised the ride of a man's life. Asha was all woman--and the only woman for him. He'd bet she could go from zero to one hundred in the blink of an eye...and not even her claims of paranormal happenings in the diner she ran could put him off. He knew magic: He had a special name for the sights, the sounds, the tastes and smells of that perfect ride. There might be a storm coming, but it was one of passion, and together he and Asha would be...RIDING THE THUNDER

Second in the Seven Sisters of Colford Hall series sequel to The Invasion of Falgannon Isle.

Wow. So, this story was nothing like I expected. I figured there would be humor (there is) and unusual characters (there are) and a convoluted, yet interesting plot (yep...it's there, too!), but I didn't expect a ghost story. Or a murder mystery.


Deborah MacGillivray has packed this book full of a little bit of everything! Even better, it's well written and edited.


From the moment Jago Mershan rides into Kentucky, he's a little off-center. The entire place is like a moment out of the sixties, from the diner with its haunted jukebox to the drive-in theater. But when Asha Montgomerie starts reliving the past through the eyes of teenager who died back in 1964, things get a little dicey. And when someone tries to kill them both, Jago determines to find out just what the heck is going on in the little back water town.

He's quickly adopted by everyone there, including the Cat With No Name who no one has ever seen before, so he feels a little guilty about the nefarious plans his family has to ruin the Montgomerie family as payback for an old debt.

I loved this book even more than the first in this series. With layer after layer of mystery and intrigue as well as a secondary romance between Asha's brother, Liam, and Netta, I didn't want to stop reading! The best part of this book, though, has to be the colorful supporting cast of characters--each so incredibly unique, yet believable, that I'm ready to pack up and move to Kentucky.

Deborah MacGillivray has consistently impressed me with her work, and has earned a place on both my keeper shelf and my auto-buy list. I can NOT wait until the next book in this series comes out. I'll be first in line to get a copy.Do yourself a big favor and pick up the books in this series the minute you can. You won't be disappointed.
