Decorated war hero Conall Stewart has spent ten years envisioning his return to his beloved Scottish Highlands. But now, with the days of battle finally behind him, it seems that his dreams of home have been in vain: the land of his youth lies in ruins, and his family is gone. Though he will never stop searching for his kin, Conall knows he must begin again. But when he takes on a rented farm in a nearby town, he finds far more than the fresh start he was looking for .
After catching a mischievous local lad stealing, Conall returns young Jamie to his mother, Aileen Leslie—and finds the woman’s coddling of the child maddening. What Conall does not realize is that Aileen hides a frightening secret: her devoted protection of Jamie is all that shelters them from discovery by a dangerous man from their past. Drawn together by circumstance, Conall soon develops a fatherly relationship with Jamie—as well as romantic feelings for Aileen. But even as the couple accepts their growing affection for one another, time runs out for Aileen and her son: after years of hiding, they have been found. Conall lost his family once—he will do all in his power not to let history repeat itself?
Miss Leslie's Secret is another wonderful book by Jennifer Moore. I laughed, I cried and at the end, I was felt content and appreciated the wonderful book I just finished. I loved the Scottish setting and the accents were enjoyable. Each character was perfectly written. Aileen, Conall and Jamie were amazing. Dores also was a fabulous supporting character. What a tough and spunky lady she was. I loved it when she was around. I appreciated the father figure roll Conall had with Jamie and I loved their relationship. There is particular lovely scene with the two of them that was very enduring and sweet.
5 out of 5 stars!
