I am reviewing Key Inheritance(The Key Legacy) By Jen McConnel.
Blurb: Ten years after the trip to Scotland that changed her life, Lou is back in the misty, magical country. This time, however, she’s not on vacation: Lou is there to settle some distasteful and depressing family business. When Brian, her old Highland fling, turns up, Lou is forced to wrestle with a past that she thought was dead and buried. As tension between the former lovers mounts, something wicked is stirring in Scotland. Lou must use all her strength to handle the increasingly desperate situation, but will she be strong enough to battle both a vengeful ghost and her heart?
The Key Inheritance is a novella that takes place a decade after the events of The Burning of Isobel Key. This contemporary story crosses into the supernatural as Lou discovers evidence of a long-dead spirit who refuses to rest in peace. Lou may have thought that she was finished with the witch Isobel Key, but her inheritance is more than the young woman can handle alone.
Review: This book is the second in a series the first being The Burning of Isobel Key. I haven’t read the first yet but that no way detracted from this book. I found it engaging from the first with just the right amount of mystery revolving around Lou. Coming back to Scotland after ten years to wrap up her cousins estate and running into a old love is hard enough but she must deal with left over ghosts of the distant past relatives. Using her faith as a witch to help. Now I must go get the first book and get filled in on the details of that past. I found this a pleasant read. In all areas I give it a 4.
