I know better than to start a new Celtic Brooch series book before bed, I do…. really. Sadly I could not wait to listen so ended up staying up most of the night. It was so worth it!
In this installment a hidden message painted on Kitherina (Kit) MacKlenna's portrait is discovered by James Cullen Fraser, son of Elliott and Meredith. This leads to a great adventure that involves the entire clan. Needless to say there is a wide range of the good, the bad, and definitely the ugly as ‘adventures’ to the past are never straight forward. Like with previous books there is a wonderful mystery or two....or three to solve along the way.
Katherine Lowry Logan’s story is as always outstanding and full of surprises in addition to being superbly written. I find her stories send me on an emotional roller coaster, loving every minute… some after I find a tissue.
Teri Schnaubelt’s narration is as always outstanding. She expertly portrays the wide range of female and male voices, giving them distinct personalities and vocal patterns. She is definitely one of the most versatile narrators out there.
I cannot wait for the next installment, the Diamond Brooch.

Any additional comments?
The Three Brooches is an amazing outstanding novel by author Katherine Lowry Logan. With the entire Celtic Brooch series, she blends time-travel romance perfectly with heart-racing action adventure. As with the prior book in the series, the Broken Brooch, almost the entire MacKlenna Family is featured in this book (about a dozen adults and five children). [If you have not read any of the books in the series before, please read The Ruby Brooch and The Sapphire Brooch before attempting to read this one].
This book centers around the "legend of the three brooches:" when the ruby, sapphire, and emerald brooches are together, their combined power can open a portal to the past. The story basically starts when a message appears in an 135-year old painting of Kit MacKlenna requesting help in the form of insulin for a diabetic. Soon thereafter almost the entire MacKlenna Clan go back to 1881. In the span of about 24 hours a parade of horribles befall on the clan with several main characters in dire jeopardy of losing their lives. Plus Jack Mallory wanders off as he has a tendency to do and before you know it, he's uncovered a plot to overthrow the government using the gold and riches from the Confederates that disappeared after Lincoln was shot.
Teri Schnaubelt narrated this audiobook as she has done with the previous books in the Celtic Brooch series. Teri is simply outstanding, using differing voices for male and female characters and discerning the younger from the older characters. Although this book is a little longer than others in the series running at 15 1/2 hours, I never felt like the story was drawn out unnecessarily. There was too much action going on! I can't recommend this audiobook and the entire series enough. A+
