Shake Loose the Border (Thunder on the Moor Book 3) by Andrea Matthews – Review by Dahnielle Hibbert

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the third novel in this series. These are NOT stand alone books. If you try to read two or three without having read the previous books you will not have all the information you need to move forward. This story keeps getting more wild, dramatic and crazy as it goes on. There is so much action and suspense sometimes it is hard to know where to focus your attention. That said I am enamored with the characters enough that I can’t wait to find out what happens to them. This storyline has become an absolute obsession for me. As always the author added all those well researched historical facts and details that just make these stories pop… and makes her one of my my favorite authors. Another added bonus is the maps, family trees, and glossaries of obscure words. Now comes the hard part … waiting for book 4!!

I had high hopes for this second installment in this series and I was not disappointed. Once again this author does her research well. All those historically accurate details really are a huge draw for me. One thing I would note is sometimes there is so much going on it is hard to follow and you wish everything would slow down and have all those little details that really flush a book out. I love the descriptions of Scotland and really feel like I can see the image in the way it is described. The characters are lovable and have well developed back stories. Am reading book three today! Can’t wait to see what happens to Will and Maggie next.

After reading the description I was immediately intrigued and couldn’t wait to dive right in. Right off the bat there is a huge plot hole and because my brain got stuck in it I had a hard time enjoying the rest of the book. The pace was so fast the author forgot those little details that bring a story to life. However, I did finish the book and am now interested enough to want to read the next in the series. One thing I am super picky about is making sure an author knows what they are talking about and this book was well researched. I enjoyed the characters and have hope that the next installment will not fall into the “too fast paced” category.

I love the way this book grabbed my attention. I wasn’t sure about reading it, but I am so glad I did. This was an amazing book. The time travel mixed with the paranormal kept me wanting to read more and more. This is my first book by this author. They really made this world come alive with the details. I was transported into this world.

Shake Loose the Border (Thunder on the Moor Book 3) by Andrea Matthews. This book was sooo good. Its a time traveling, paranormal romance. Its the story of Maggie and Will who are getting married soon. One day they find Johnnie Hetherington’s body tied to a tree on their property. Of course the police question Will and his family though its pretty obvious that they didn’t do it. It is decided the Wedding can proceed but shortly after the other Clan attacks them sending Maggie going back to another time to be safe. Will finds himself in trouble again and its going to take everything Dylan has to save him. The Scottish time seems so beautiful and I truly felt like I was there. I really believe this can be read as a standalone but I recommend reading them in order to truly understand all that’s going on. Will Dylan be able to save Will or will he end up losing everything? Read this amazing paranormal, time traveling romance!

What an ending to the series! Just as Maggie and Will get their happy ending, a tragedy unfolds in their lives that causes conflict like they’ve never experienced. The entire series was a roller coaster of emotions that kept you guessing what might happen next but nothing like the last book. It definitely made it hard for me to put the book down at times, my partner definitely was put on the back burner as I raced to finish the series. I am so happy that I was able to discover such a fantastic author, I look forward to reading more by her in the years to come!

Even better than the first! Will and Maggie pick up right where the previous book left off, the adventure that started nowhere close to being over. Maggie herself grew a lot as a character in the book, which was great to see because in the period that the book takes place in, many women were seen but not heard. It was a quick read for me and every time I thought that I was going to get a break there was more added to the story that kept me drawn in. A definite rollercoaster of emotions for me but I’m really excited to read the next book in the series!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Will Foster and Maggie Armstrong return and it is the week before their wedding, they are over the moon that it is coming to pass, especially so soon because there happens to be a priest who is passing by, but they are still worried about the Armstrong families reaction to their hand fasting, so the sooner they are married, the better they will feel. So as Will’s mother gets all hands on deck to begin the preparations, Will and Maggie are finding that they have very little time to themselves, an obvious ploy by his parents to make sure that they stay as true to waiting until they are married as they can, much to Wills annoyance.

As they escape for an afternoon together, Maggie comes across the body of Johnnie Hetherington in the woods looking worse for wear and in a state that distresses Maggie, but despite all the betrayals he has been at the heart of, she doesn’t understand why he has been left that way. As Will tries to explain it and settle Maggie’s heart and body to a somewhat normal state, they are interrupted by Sergeant Richie Carnaby arriving to request Will’s presence at his fathers home so that he can question them all about Johnnie, although how he already knows about it is one mystery and the other is who could have done Johnnie in when it is found that the Fosters had nothing to do with it.

Meanwhile, word has gotten around that their nuptials have been arranged and so Geordie Armstrong decides to take the matter into his own hands and still believing that he can change Maggie’s mind and get her to see reason and marry Ian Rutherford, he calls together both families to plan a raid on the Foster family and end the blood feud once and for all. As time grows short, the wedding is moved up a day and it is a good job that it was as the Armstrong’s descend on the Fosters and a bloody and violent battle begins between the two families. As the fighting intensifies, Will implores Dylan to get Maggie to safety and see that she escapes, but has to promise that he will follow shortly, however, a certain Ian Rutherford has other ideas and goes onto the attack when he spots Will across the battlefield. When Dylan settles Maggie and promises to return, he goes back, but he can see that the stone is disintegrating and may only have one more trip, so despite his misgivings, he heads back after Will, but what will he find when he gets there and will there be any time for him to say goodbye to Annie, the woman who has captured his heart?

This is another action packed trip into historical Britain and the Border Wars between the Reivers who live there, as blood feuds continue and both love and heartache dog their lives, but as they do a lot of living and laughing in between the two this charming story unfolds as a rollercoaster of emotion plays out over a beautiful landscape.

So we’ve traveled back over four hundred and fifty years ago, and so much drama has happened since they arrived. Poor Maggie has so much going on. She’s got a betrothed maniac, an Englishman who has her heart, and two families who are against it. What are we to do? The more you read into this book, the more you grip it till you finish reading. Such a great series! Continue on!
