Review: Shaggy Maggie By Tyffani Clark Kemp


Shaggy Maggie
By-Tyffani Clark Kemp
Publication Date- July 25th, 2013  

Harvey Young, rock star lead of the Scottish band Shaggy Maggie, has dreamed his whole life about the red-haired girl from the school bus that he bullied until she ran away. He's resigned himself to groupie fill-ins. There's no way he'll ever see her again. Why torture himself pining for his lost youth?
Magda Canady may be on the unlucky side, but her life is starting to work itself out. She's an editor for a New York Publishing company and her long-time lawyer boyfriend is taking her home to Scotland to meet the parents and his younger brother. But the trip holds more danger than she could have imagined. Between a psycho stalker and the boy who tortured her through high school, she might lose her mind - and her life - before it's all said and done. 

When a chance encounter brings them together once more, it's the past, the present, and a little psychosis that may get in the way of the future that was always meant to be.

   

Kim's Review of Shaggy Maggie

This book was such an enjoyable read for me! I found myself finishing it pretty quickly because I just had to find out what happened! First and foremost, I must say that I loved reading some of the dialogue in Scottish, I have seen some books that have simply left it out, and this really made the book come alive!

Madge, oh Madge. I could never imagine being in her shoes. In love with this gorgeous guy who wants to marry her and she goes home to meet the family, and damn if her boyfriends(his name is Beckman) twin brother is the guy who tortures her when she was in high school! Poor Madge also suffers from the worst case of clumsiness that I have ever seen, but her character, while flawed (poor girl falls overherself a lot) has some great characteristics that makes her lovable and you find yourself rooting for her.

However, mean or not, I fell in love with Harvey, he's a rocker, he's a bad boy, he knows it, and he uses it to his advantage, but there is something about him that shows that maybe there is a little more to Harvey than just drinking, sex, and rocking out.

Just when you think that there is nothing more that could be added to this, Madge has a stalker, and the person is nuts to say the lease and is certainly out for revenge on poor Madge. The suspense definitely kicks in because I couldn't figure out why in the world someone would stalk this sweet girl! But who comes to her rescue? Beckman the man she wants to marry or Harvey, the man she wants to forget?


Do yourself a HUGE favor, and read this book. I enjoyed it immensely and was so glad to have the opportunity to read it! 5 stars for sure!
