Wired For Sound Reviews
Cherime for sure doesn't disappoint with the next installment of her The MacGrough Clan series. Also this cover is simply gorgeous! I love the red so much in.For a rock n' roll good time this is the series for you to get into. You can tell obviously how much detail is involved to make bands and behind the scenes believeable. Of course in this book the artist get a tad testy ; ) In this book we have Hamish with a interesting love story of course with Lori. This novel even has some mystery along with it. What I enjoyed the most was the realism in this book you can really relate to the characters and the surroundings. Flows into a beautiful well built storyline. You have to love the Scottish in it of course which is in most of Cherime's novels that's I've read so far.Highly recommend and this book for sure needs some more attention and love! It's well worth the price and you for sure want to pick up book one.
I am not a big fan of using dialects in books. I am happy it wasn't overpowering in this book, but it did take me a bit to get used to. Having said that, MacFarlane's use of speech is a talent I wish more authors had. You can feel character personalities strength between every set of quotation marks! 5/5 An intriguing mystery
I really enjoyed this book. It had a Scottish flavour to it that appealed to me, being from Glasgow. It was real and gritty and the author knew what she was talking about when it came to music, bands, and all the tour drama that goes with the lives of musicians. This gave the story a realism and it was further enhanced when Hamish and Lori shared their personal relationship with me. Love is not always easy or trusting and this was conveyed very well in the characters' thoughts and dialogue. I thought the writing was very engaging and Ms MacFarlane's natural flow held just the perfect combination to keep me engrossed and reading. I've never wanted to follow bands, live gigs, etc but this story opened my eyes to the backbiting stressful times involved in being on the road. Thanks for the great read. I highly recommend this novel and hope it gets more attention.
This isn't the first book I have read in this series, and I do like the characters and their interaction. This story is part of a box set I am reading but I think that each tale should be reviewed separately.Hamish is a sympathetic character, a member of a Scottish band on tour but life is suddenly upended due to a murder. He has his suspicions yet is troubled about who the murderer could be; surely not. His 'gift' leads him down paths...that's it, no spoilers from me.Overall, an enjoyable read and worth a look, if only for the wonderful Scottish flavour.
For those who love rock and roll and reading, this is the perfect book for you. The author has an in depth knowledge of bands, tours and the behind the scenes action of a major tour. As with all artists, tempers run high and emotions get out of hand. Cherime Mcfarlane brings out the essence of the Scot in Hamish beautifully and his conflict over his love for Lori and his doubts about her, make that love story very interesting. A good mystery and an enjoyable read!
Another great novel by Cherime MacFarlane.What I love about this author's work is the feeling of being there. I feel as if the author has an intimate knowledge of her characters and the space they inhabit, and she has the proven to convey the reality of the scene, without the story flow being punctured by weighty descriptions. The space the characters inhabit and the nature of each character comes through in the dialogue. The world of Wired for Sound is one of the behind the scenes of the music world. It is realistic. The suspense plot is gripping, page turning, the romance deeply satisfying. As always, Cherime conveys a love for country that I share, and that makes me a huge fan of this author's work.
