The Treasure of the Celtic Triangle by Michael Phillips

A Quest for the Truth Leads Home

Having accepted his uncle’s dying request to restore the missing heir to the Westbrooke estate, young Scotsman Percy Drummond begins an unforgettable journey. But as his search leads him to Ireland, circumstances in Wales threaten the future. . .

Percy’s engagement to beautiful Florilyn Westbrooke hangs in the balance when Florilyn fears they are moving forward too quickly. Childhood friend Gwyneth Barrie disappears unexpectedly, and Percy begins to feel his heart pulled toward the mystifying lass. Meanwhile cousin Courtenay Westbrook devises a scheme destined to rip the family and estate apart once he inherits his late father’s title.

As Percy’s quest continues down many circuitous paths, the key to the mystery seems forever to elude him ... unless he can discover the greatest treasure that was within his sight all along. Will he find the true reward before it fades into the misty Celtic past?

I devoured the first book in "The Green Hills of Snowdonia" series, From Across the Ancient Waters about six months ago and it is one of my favourites for the year. The Treasure of the Celtic Triangle is the second book in the series and it continues the story of Percy Drummond and his cousins in Scotland.

Percy and his cousin Florilyn believed their upcoming wedding was the best thing for both of them, but Florilyn has reservations and calls off the engagement. Meanwhile, Florilyn's brother Courtenay has aspirations to claim the entire family estate and fortune on his 25th birthday, as outlined in his father's will. He is busy making shady deals with unsavory characters, just to keep his cash flow constant until his inheritance is official.

Percy has a race against time as he travels to Ireland to solve the mystery of his uncle's past. A family secret might find the family fortune and estate in the hands of someone else, and Percy is determined to find out the truth before it's too late.

Stories like this simply have me longing for more. I love the history, the scenery, and the passion showed through the delightful characters created by Michael Phillips. If it were possible to demonstrate a standing ovation in a book review, this one definitely deserves it!
