Ere The long descriptive passages slowed the pace of the story down for me while the action seuences seemed too short in comparisonSo if you enjoy stories brimming with atmosphere and melancholic reflections of one s youth and self pity then you ll no doubt find much to enjoy in this novel but if you like your murder mysteries to focus on ow the police solve the crime then you may find this novel a little disappointing DI Fin Macleod returns from Edinburgh to the island of The Reluctant Heiress Lone Star Legacy his birth to investigate the possible link between two murders He meets old friends and old adversaries and is forced to address issues thatave remained unresolved or even Les Osismes Peuple de l'Occident Gaulois hidden for seventeen yearsThis book is a mix of genres and took a while to get into for that reason The murder investigation is a contemporary story written in the third person It reads like most other good crime novels of today But Fin s back story while being integral to the investigation is told via the first person and at a slower reflective pace I found these switches a little disorienting to start with which is the main reason I gave it four starts instead of fiveI was recommended to read this in preparation for a trip to the Outer Hebrides And for this it worked very well The island its weather and its nature is a major star of the book I look forward to seeing it in real life And I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys murder mysteries especially those set in Scotland I love a good bit of Tartan Noir and The Blackhouse did not disappointWritten in two tenses the book throws you back and forth so put you fully in the picture ofow life was and L'Europe et le mythe de l'Occident how lifeas come to be for the main protagonist FinThe author is very descriptive in is writing but it made me feel fully invested into the characters there lives and the island It was as if I was there with them Although overly descriptive prose is not to everyone s likingAs someone who is looking to move to the Hebrides next year I absolutely loved the gentle introduction and explanation of Gaelic language A language I will endeavour to get a grip of despite it s unusual spelling and pronunciationThe story moves uickly and soon you become engrossed in the plot and just can t put your Kindle downNo spoilers ere but lets just say as soon as I finished The BlackHouse I went straight into Book 2 The Lewis Man as I just The Kitchen Linens Book Using Sharing and Cherishing the Fabrics of Our Daily Lives had to know what wasappening.
