My Rating 3755 starsCatriona started a bit rocky for me I had a bit of a rough time staying focused and getting used to the jumps between Catriona Wells and Kate Sutherland I didn't mind the different perspectives or even the different time periodsthere were just moments where I felt things were moving too uickly But when I finally found my comfy little niche I was captivated by the story and plot I loved the historical parts of the story This is my first time delving into Scottish history so it was a real treat As soon as I was done I wanted to know about James IV's story and about Scotland Jeanette Baker brought a lot of the characters to life and I really became interested in themThe modern story involving Kate was of a backdrop for me I liked seeing how Kate's life was unfolding after she found out she was adopted and traveled to Scotland for answers I got a bit lost when she met Maura thoughThe paranormal aspect of the story was also a bit iffy for me I definitely felt the magic at times but other times I was left a little perplexed But don't let these observations deter you from checking this out Catriona is a beautiful story that will appeal to a lot of readers There are two romantic arcs to follow in the plot and like I mentioned earlier I leaned towards the historical one involving Catriona and Patrick Kate and Niall's relationship moved a bit too fast for mebut I still enjoyed reading it I think I'm just in of a historical fiction niche at the momentI can't express enough how strong and developed the characters were Characters are so important to me and many other readers I'm sure I loved the latter part of the story when the secondary characters really start to get involved with the plot The Scotland setting both historical and modern was detailed and so easy to picture Reading Catriona has definitely gotten me interested in Scotland and I love that about good stories I'm excited to read of Jeanette Baker's work and I recommend Catriona to romance lovers of all kinds
