The author’s grasp and depiction of the political turmoil during that time made the danger and intrigue realistic and adds to the book’s already fabulous storyline. There was wit and humor in each of Portia and Pierce’s interactions, which of course became more passionate as they got to know each other. Readers of Borrowed Dreams will get more clues to the puzzle surrounding a childhood friend’s death. With her own kind of magic, McGoldrick made this historical a pleasure to read and I can’t wait to have all three in my collection. - Reader to Reader Review
