When two American teenagers took a trip to Alloway, they never expected to find an enchanted land on the other side of an old bridge. Veronica and Mackenna are best friends—and total opposites. Vee dreams of being swept off her feet by a fantasy boy in a kilt, and Kenna is too busy pursuing her own dream of being an actress to think about boys. But everything changes when the girls find an old journal and an enchanted set of rings—rings that have the power to open the Brig o’ Doon. Veronica is beyond excited to finally meet Jamie, the boy who has been appearing to her in visions. Mackenna wants nothing more than to return home when the Brig o’ Doon reopens on the Centennial. Will their wishes come true? Will the girls get their own happy ever afters?
What I LOVED…
I am not quick to call a book my favorite. I have books I have enjoyed and even many I have loved. I prefer some authors over others and sometimes I like series, while other times a great stand-alone book draws me. Doon, for me, was one of those books that sort of knocked me off my feet. I was really intrigued by the plotline and even the cover so I decided to give it a try.
And just like Vee and Kenna, what I found was a hidden treasure.
Doon is one of those books you think about long after you put it down. I absolutely loved it. I couldn’t stop reading! The magnetism between Jamie and Veronica made me hungrier for more! What at first seemed like one of those old Disney movies where the Prince and Princess meet and live happily every after, turned out to be exactly the opposite. I thought I had it all figured out in the beginning but then Lorie Langdon and Carey Corp threw me for a loop and I was literally saying, “What?!”
And that, my friends, is called good writing.
Doon is a love story. I won’t ruin it but I will say I cried at the end (this is a good thing). I was so moved by the story I was literally in tears, not only because the story tugged on my heart strings, but because as soon as I finished the book I knew I had to wait another eight months for the next one to come out. Talk about something to cry about! If you love fairy tales with strong heroes and heroines, you will love Doon. The subtle, underlying Biblical symbolism in this story was just the right amount—not preachy but very clear indeed. I highly recommend this story. Doon is my favorite book so far this year! I seriously hope it gets turned into a movie (the imagery is so beautiful, I am dying to see it on the big screen)!

As a writer, I love getting lost in another place and time. There’s just something about being outside reality that draws me as both a writer and a reader. What about you? Why do you think fantasy worlds are so appealing? I love hearing from you! Until then, Happy Reading!
