I couldn't let this week go by without recommending the sequel to last week's book, The Fisherman's Lady. The sequel is entitled The Marquis' Secret (Macdonald / Phillips). And if you are going to read the first, you must read the second, because it is filled with unsuspecting plot twists and turns. Both books are about a simple Scottish fisherman named Malcolm and a young girl that he knows he can never love. But the way MacDonald develops the story is very clever, and not the type of book that once you read the first chapter, you can pretty much guess how it all comes out in the end. In fact all of MacDonald's books are written so well that the story line keeps your interest clear up until the end.
And now, I am back off to the kitchen to finish cooking food for the Super Bowl Game later this afternoon.
