Fresh Fiction Review

A Mackenzie Clan Christmas

Romance Holiday | Romance Historical

A MACKENZIE CLAN CHRISTMAS includes the newest holiday novella “A Mackenzie Yuletide” and the previously published novella “A Mackenzie Clan Gathering”. Both stories are a delightful mix of mystery, humor, and romance in a cozy setting with a great assortment of characters familiar to fans of Ashley’s “Mackenzie” series. I think this book will appeal to fans of historical romance and holiday-themed romances, even if they haven’t been following this series for years like I have. However, for more context, reading THE MADNESS OF LORD IAN MACKENZIE first will give readers a better understanding of one of the main characters.

Having already read “A Mackenzie Clan Gathering” when it originally came out, I was particularly eager to read the newest installment in the series. In “A Mackenzie Yuletide”, the story is told from alternating perspectives of a host of different characters, and the action revolves around a potential ghost haunting the halls of Kilmorgan Castle in Scotland and the theft of an antique necklace. Ian Mackenzie is a force to be reckoned with when he makes his mind up about something, and he wants the necklace as a gift for his wife. Unfortunately, the necklace has been stolen and Ian and his family members follow the necklace’s trail and interrogate more than one shady character in an attempt to retrieve it. I love these characters, and they are in their element in this story as they work as a team to achieve their goals and make the holidays special for each other. Jennifer Ashley balances the time allotted to each character, and each couple, well and the story feels very cohesive as well as entertaining.

A MACKENZIE CLAN CHRISTMAS is showcases great storytelling, strength in family, and Christmas romance. I would love to read stories about the younger generation of Mackenzies when they become adults and have their own adventures in romance. As always, I look forward to Jennifer Ashley’s next romance novel.
