Book Review (14).

The Lure of Shapinsay


The story starts in 1848 we have our heroine Kait selling her wares to make money for her and her twin brother Blain when a commotion comes from her best friend's house, she's just given birth a to half-human, half-selkie baby, her best friend's father takes it to ocean and throws it into the sea.
As soon as Kait finds out what happened she wades out into the ocean hoping to save the baby with no luck not realising she was seen by a male selkie who believes she was the one who threw the baby into the ocean, he decides to take revenge and creeps into her house at night when she's asleep to kill her but finds he can't.
The selkie does come back and wakes her accusing her of being a murderer she explains what happened and he believes her, from that moment on they can't seem to stay away from each other, Kait worries she's fallen in love with Eamon (she gave him his name as he didn't have one) because of his lure and she's also engaged to another man arranged by her brother, and Eamon agrees to stay on land with Kait and never go near the water again.
So throughout the story you wonder will he leave her and go back to the ocean? will she get out of her arranged marriage? and finally is she really in love with Eamon?
The only complaint I would have was I would have liked to have known what happened after the last page maybe an epilogue would have been good because I still have a lot of unanswered questions.
But I loved great premise and a great story.
I give it 4/5.                                                                                                                                                                                                   A big thanks to the author Krista Holle for allowing me to read and review this book.
