The Key Inheritance by Jen McConnel Book Review

Ten years after the trip to Scotland that changed her life, Lou is back in the misty, magical country. This time, however, she’s not on vacation: Lou is there to settle some distasteful and depressing family business. When Brian, her old Highland fling, turns up, Lou is forced to wrestle with a past that she thought was dead and buried. As tension between the former lovers mounts, something wicked is stirring in Scotland. Lou must use all her strength to handle the increasingly desperate situation, but will she be strong enough to battle both a vengeful ghost and her heart?

The Key Inheritance is a novella that takes place a decade after the events of The Burning of Isobel Key. This contemporary story crosses into the supernatural as Lou discovers evidence of a long-dead spirit who refuses to rest in peace. Lou may have thought that she was finished with the witch Isobel Key, but her inheritance is more than the young woman can handle alone.

My thoughts: This is the second book in the series and I couldn't wait to get it on my e-reader. The first book ends where you are left to wonder if Lou will ever see Brian again or what will happen when she meets her biological family. This book picks up 10 years later when Lou goes back to Scotland to take care of some family matters, things have changed over the past 10 years but she meets Brian when she arrives. They have their ups and downs emotionally as would be expected after how Lou left Brian standing at the airport when he asked he to stay in Scotland 10 years ago. This is a shorter book, including more magic in it and we learn a bit more about Lou and her magical background. We also see more into the Isobel Key story just like in the first book we go back in time here and there. This time we learn more about the Dr. and Alexander, how they met and more about their personality. The characters are well developed along with a great story line of love, witchcraft and ghosts! 
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars!
