Destined for Doon by Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon

Destined for Doon by Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon is the sequel to   Doon by the same authors.  Mackenna is visited by Duncan, her old boyfriend from Doon, in her dressing room onset of her newest production just one short year after her return to modern day.  Mackenna has spent the past year acutely aware that she has made the mistake of her life by leaving Duncan on the bridge leading to Doon.  Doon is a community in the Scottish past.  The only way to Doon is to cross the Brig O Doon at just the right time.  Duncan requests Mackenna's return at the request of her best friend Veronica who happens to also be the Queen.  Both Mackenna and Veronica crossed the bridge at the same time but only Mackenna returned to modern Chicago in order to pursue her career hopefully to Broadway.  She is certain that Duncan must hate her for leaving him but she is also aware that she loves Duncan every bit as much as she ever did.  Mackenna agrees to return with Duncan for Veronica's sake to help her rescue Doon.   Mackeena and Veronica must figure out a way to save the land of Doon from the limbus which is destroying all vegetation, replacing it with a dark petunia-like flower and turning the wildlife and humans into a form much like zombies.  Will the rings that Mackeena and Veronica wear have enough power to save the Scottish land of Doon? Will the Doonians ever accept Veronica as their true queen and not just a figure head leader?  Read this next installment of Doon for all these answers and more.

I really do like these Doon stories.  I am not usually a fan of fantasy but I do enjoy the stepping back into the  history of Scotland of a thousand years past in order to read a good love story.  These love stories are good wholesome love stories than anyone including those of Junior high age and above could enjoy.  I think that this story could stand alone but the reader would definitely benefit from reading the series in order to get the background of the story.  I recommend this book as good reading for any who enjoy love stories and/or soft fantasy.
I received this book from Booklook for this review.
