Review: The Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley

This book was so slow and boring I just could not finish it.  I read over 300 pages and began to wonder why.  Can you say - next?  At one point we are literally reading about them playing chess, play by play.  Really - that bad!  I paid $9.99 for this book and would love to get my money back, but they only thing I can do is try to talk you into saving your money.  The 5 star reviews totally snookered me in, but found myself very disappointed as I turned the page.

SYNOPSIS by Barnes & Noble
History has all but forgotten...
In the spring of 1708, an invading Jacobite fleet of French and Scottish soldiers nearly succeeded in landing the exiled James Stewart in Scotland to reclaim his crown.
Now, Carrie McClelland hopes to turn that story into her next bestselling novel. Settling herself in the shadow of Slains Castle, she creates a heroine named for one of her own ancestors and starts to write.
But when she discovers her novel is more fact than fiction, Carrie wonders if she might be dealing with ancestral memory, making her the only living person who knows the truth-the ultimate betrayal-that happened all those years ago, and that knowledge comes very close to destroying her...
