Ella and the Brownies' Treasure by Lizbeth Selvig

An Heirs of Craigwarren Middle-Grade Novella--also a part of The Getaway Chronicles Series

Ella believes Brownie magic can save her family.

No matter what rules she has to break to find its secret.

 

Eleven-year-old Ella MacDonald-Portman is worried. Her biggest heroes in the world, her mum and her new stepdad, are having problems. Her dad, Noah, is thinking about taking a construction job for at least six months in his native America, and her mum, Mairi, doesn’t want to go. Ella doesn’t want her dad to go either—she’s already been abandoned by one father, and this one she adores with all her heart. She knows if he leaves their home in Scotland, he’ll never come back.

Ella has one hope. As an expert in Scottish legends and creatures, she fully believes in the magic of the Highlands, and in a little-known legend telling of a magic glass cup given to the brownie folk by kind human glass makers. This cup brings good luck to all who see it. The story also says a Brownies may grant a favorite human their dearest wish if they find the glass, but only if the wish is unselfish. Ella wants that wish for her parents so they’ll stay together forever.

She’s positive Diarmid, the brownie who lives in her barn at Craigwarren—her home in Scotland—knows the whereabouts of the magic glass, and when she starts to find clues, she has no doubt. To her surprise, she finds out after an accident that Keir, a boy in her school class whom she’s always hated, is not horrible but is as big a believer in magic as she is. As their friendship grows, they search for the Brownies’ Treasure together.

When their secret explorations get them into serious trouble, however, Ella and Keir are grounded from any more far-flung searching. Before she can find her treasure, her father is ready to leave. She admits to her plan at last, and although the grown-ups have simple explanations for all her discoveries, Ella still believes.

Trouble is, it might be too late for even the strongest faith to make a miracle happen.

Scotland at Last by Lizbeth Selvig

Book 3 in the Heirs of Craigwarren series

Her move to Scotland wasn’t about love—until she found it with a true-to-life Highlander.

The only one in the whole of the country who didn’t want to stay.

 

Dyed-in-the-wool optimist Bridget Portman has known her entire life she’d eventually move from the U.S. to Scotland—the land of her late mother’s birth. Though she comes to celebrate her brother’s Christmas wedding at beautiful Craigwarren, the home bequeathed to Bridget and her brothers, there’s more to her Scottish plans than holiday nuptials and inheritances. With a freshly acquired master’s degree in archaeology, she’s been offered the perfect job on a historical dig, where her lifelong dream of studying her heritage can come true at last.

Master distiller Lachlan Brody might be fifth-generation heir to iconic Glen Alasdair distillery, but he’s tired of looking for acceptance from his famous father, who refuses to acknowledge his son’s expertise or allow him to help bring Glen Alasdair into the future and out of financial trouble. Lachlan loves his job in the U.S. and is ready to leave Scotland and his family legacy behind for a rare opportunity to purchase a small distillery of his own. But a serious accident leaves his father incapacitated and the family business in need of help.

Anxious to do what he must to support his family and return quickly to America, he doesn’t count on the increasing friction with his father or problem after problem plaguing Glen Alasdair. He’s also unprepared to meet the most infectiously happy person he’s ever known. Within days, effervescent Bridget starts to remind him of all the things he still loves about Scotland. No matter how bad things get, Bridget makes the world brighter. Soon, unexpected love brings all Lachlan’s beliefs and plans into question.

When Bridget’s dream job falls through, however, and she learns the only opportunity in her field will send her halfway around the world from her beloved Scotland and Craigwarren, it devastates even her sunny personality. It doesn’t help that she’s fallen hard for a Highlander she wasn’t even looking for.

But if Bridget can’t follow her dreams, and Lachlan can’t find a way to work with his father, neither can stay in Scotland after Christmas and be happy. Even love has its work cut out with these two.

When it comes to love, however, the Highlands have power. And Christmas has a magic all its own.
