Read A Strange Scottish Shore (Emmaline Truelove, #2) Online Free - Scotland, 1906. A mysterious object discovered inside an ancient castle calls Maximilian Haywood, the new Duke of Olympia, and his fellow researcher Emmeline Truelove, north to the remote Orkney Islands. No stranger to the study of anachronisms in archeological digs, Haywood is nevertheless puzzled by the artifact: a suit of clothing, which, according to family legend, once belonged to a selkie who rose from the sea in ancient times and married the castle’s first laird.
But Haywood and Truelove soon discover they’re not the only ones interested in the selkie’s strange hide, and when their mutual friend Lord Silverton vanishes in the night from an Edinburgh street, the mystery takes a dangerous turn through time, which only Haywood’s skills and Truelove’s bravery can solve…

I have not read the first book in this series so I was not sure what to expect when I started to read this one. I didn't even know that Juliana Gray is a pseudonym for Beatriz Williams (who I haven't read anything by, but have a couple of books to read). However, I quite liked the beginning of th...

I've given this an A- at AAR, so that's 4.5 stars rounded up.
When I read A Most Extraordinary Pursuit, the first of Juliana Gray’s historical mystery series featuring the intrepid Emmeline Truelove, I wasn’t – at first – quite sure what to think. There’s a mystery, yes, and a bit of romance… but...

A Strange Scottish Shore is book two in the Emmeline Truelove series. I started with the first book, had some niggles so cautiously picked this one up to see if it improved for me by giving the series another chance. It's a blend of genres that is usually an all-systems go for me: history, myster...

I received this as an ARC from Penguin Random House. Thank you.
I thought this book was a fun an interesting read. The big bonus it helped me keep my mind off pain related issues.
It was a mix of many genres, Science Fiction, Fantasy, Romance, and Historical fiction. It's perfect for fans of "The S...

I enjoyed this even more than the first! All the same quirkiness and spunky characters with so much wit. Still full of surprises and a bit more romance here than book 1.
Recommended to readers who want a little something different!

I very rarely pick up books out of order in a series but since time was short and I really wanted to read this, I took a chance and dove right into the somewhat murky waters that is this series.
Being that I at the time was craving the historical setting of Scotland, it was hard to resist such a...

Sometimes you pick up a book in a series and immediately know you are going to love it. That’s what happened with this one.
Just the cover and title alone was enough to entice me to read this one and next thing I know, within a couple of pages, I already know I desperately need the first book in t...

I've given this a C- for narration and an A- for content at AudioGals. I gave it the same grade as the book because the narration was so distracting (and boring) that I felt unable to make a proper judgement of the story in audio.
Why do audio publishers employ inexperienced narrators to work on m...

I enjoyed the first EmmelineTruelove book. As I said in my review, it didn’t, however, leave me on a satisfied high. I picked up the sequel hoping that the problems I had with book number one would all be solved. Well… Let’s just say I still wasn't completely satisfied.
One problem I had with the...

I'm loving this series and am bummed I'll have to wait another year or so to read the next one! The books are sort of Outlander meets Amelia Peabody. They're less researched and lighter than either of those series, but the heroine, Emmeline Truelove is smart, brave and just a little bossy, like P...
