Legacy of Luck (Druid's Brooch #3)Legacy of Luck by Christy Nicholas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A great read about love. Eamonn is a traveller in the horse trade. Whilst at a fair, he falls for a young woman named Katie. To his horror, she is forced to marry another man who she doesn’t love. Desperate to save her, he races against time and across the sea to unknown lands with nothing but luck and some close family members. Will it be enough to win her back?
A great read. Well developed plot with twists and turns that I just couldn’t put down. Well developed characters like Katie standing up for herself but vulnerable underneath or Eamonn sure of himself but devoted underneath. Great cast of supporting characters like the supportive Ciaran or strong and silent Ruari.
I loved the visual detail throughout the novel like with the standing stones in the bog with the mist for a sense of magic and mystery wonderfully written. Or the scenes at the fair full of life and people with small stalls and trades giving a feel of the historical setting so vivid its as if you’re actually there. Or the vibrant sense of colour throughout with the dancing lights or the brooch or the wedding dresses bright and bold and wonderful.
The switch of perspectives worked well to display both sides of events and was easy to follow. I also liked the use of the weather throughout, giving a feel for Ireland and also foreboding bad events at points aswell wonderfully written. I also loved the use of the Irish names and places and pronounciations was a lovely touch. Overall, a great read and I would give it five stars.
