The Pendulum: Legacy of the Celtic Brooch by Tarah Scott


Goodreads synopsis:
Can a woman bring an earl to justice for the murder of her sister? Lady Airin Keith will not rest until Lord Jason Bothwell is tried and convicted for the murder of his young wife. An unexpected marriage proposal brings an opportunity to prove Bothwell's guilt, but the knight who appears with her great grandmother's lost brooch threatens to interfere with Airin's brand of justice when he demands the agreed payment of marriage. A classic tale of murder, deceit and fraud that can be exposed only once the pendulum stops.
Review:
The story opens with Lady Airin Keith sneaking into the chamber of the Scarlet Knight...
I won't give you too much because this is a MUST READ -- no spoilers (sorry guys).
The Pendulum is a page turner, held my attention from the very first sentence.  Lady Airin is a spunky character.  She is passionate and unafraid, yet vulnerable and heartsick over the loss of her sister.  She is willing to do whatever it takes to avenge her sister's death, even if that means marrying a man that she distrusts.

Although it is a short read, it's just enough. Tarah weaves a masterful tale, with just the right amount of mystery and deceit, romance and passion. As the story unfolds you see Airin's character evolve, as the truth gradually reveals itself.  
Detailed and beautifully described, you'll be able to visualize the hidden chambers of the castle and the clothing of the era.  I cannot say enough...I really enjoyed reading this book. I can't wait to read the next installment...
I give it: 




The Pendulum: Legay of the Celtic Brooch is available for Kindle on Amazon for $0.99.  Visit Tarah's website at www.tarahscott.com
