About Harriet Schultz

I'm a longtime journalist and first-time novelist. I realized that I was a good writer when my college philosophy professor gave me an A+ on my final exam and commented, "I don't know if you know the material or can write really well."
I started my career at TIME where I was involved with the magazine's Watergate coverage. I discovered the joy of reporting on government at its most basic at a Maine newspaper, for which I received an award from the New England Press Association. I love to travel and have visited Scotland several times. I'm at work on my second novel.

This story was captivating right from the start. I couldn't put it down until I came to the end.

LEGACY OF THE HIGHLANDS is a fast-moving, entertaining story of love, honor and family, which is carried off with great panache. The characters are all realistic and three-dimensional, especially lead protagonist Alexandra Cameron, who is portrayed with much sympathy, but for whom the reader never feels pity. Alexandra is alternately spunky, fun, serious, sensual, and the reader is always on her side, never becoming obnoxious or unsympathetic. Her relationship with Diego is spirited and one never knows where it will lead, which is a good source of suspense in the story. The intrigue plotline could have turned into an espionage caper in lesser hands, but it is always related to the characters, and tied in well. Overall I cannot fault the story, but, there is one element I wished I could have seen more of.

The character of Anne Cameron, Will’s waspish, haughty mother, was a fascinating counterpoint in the story to the other characters. I would have liked to have had an even closer glimpse into her psyche, but, in retrospect, her presence is heavily felt whenever she is in the story, and, maybe this does work in the way that the focus is on Alexandra and Diego, and the supporting characters such as Anne are utilized to great degree. I was satisfied by the ending which, while not addressing all of the story’s loose ends, serves its purpose in a realistic manner as life is never totally cut and dry. From a story standpoint, the ending leaves the door open to further stories which can be explored at some stage with the central characters. If you are looking for a book which offers a little bit of everything, I highly recommend LEGACY OF THE HIGHLANDS.

If you would like an introduction to the characters of LEGACY OF THE HIGHLANDS, be sure to read its prequel, LUST AND HONOR, which is also a very entertaining story.

I started reading the book this morning and I haven't been able to put it down. Alex and Will are perfect couple. But when Will has been murdered, I cried with Alex. Gosshhhh this book is very sad... very heart breaking, my heart goes out to Alex in early chapter.

Murder mysteries story can keep you captivated for hours and look what they did to me. This book cause me a lack of sleep, skipped lunch and had a late dinner. It made me smile and laugh but it also brought me to tears. I love that wonderful mix of emotion.

This is a wonderful book and I recommend it.

My Review: I will be perfectly honest...when I first chose this book, I wasn't sure if I was going to like it. It was out of my comfort zone, and I was a little bit nervous about reading it. I'm used to reading paranormal and Young Adult books. HOWEVER, I was pleasantly surprised when I read the book.

However, because it was out of my comfort zone, it took me a little while to get into the book. BUT once I was hooked I WAS HOOKE! The characters really came to life, and I actually found myself CARING about them. I felt terrible for Alex, the leading female MC, and I fell instantly in love with Diego. No sooner was I hooked, did I start DREAMING, yes, DREAMING about Harriet's characters.

If you are into Romance Thrillers, and like a little history lesson in between, THIS IS THE BOOK FOR YOU! I can't wait to read more of Harriet's books in the future!
