Doon by Carey Corp & Lorie Langdon: Young Adult Review

Doon (Doon #1) by Carey Corp & Lorie Langdon. August 2013. Blink. Goodreads.


Veronica doesn’t think she’s going crazy. But why can’t anyone else see the mysterious blond boy who keeps popping up wherever she goes? When her best friend, Mackenna, invites her to spend the summer in Scotland, Veronica jumps at the opportunity to leave her complicated life behind for a few months.

But the Scottish countryside holds other plans.

Not only has the imaginary kilted boy followed her to Alloway, she and Mackenna uncover a strange set of rings and a very unnerving letter from Mackenna’s great aunt—and when the girls test the instructions Aunt Gracie left behind, they find themselves transported to a land that defies explanation. Doon seems like a real-life fairy tale, complete with one prince who has eyes for Mackenna and another who looks suspiciously like the boy from Veronica’s daydreams. But Doon has a dark underbelly as well. The two girls could have everything they’ve longed for…or they could end up breaking an enchantment and find themselves trapped in a world that has become a nightmare.

DOON is loosely based on the premise of the musical Brigadoon, with permission from the ALan Jay Lerner Estate and the Frederick Loewe Foundation. Follow the journey at DoonSeries.com

WOW!! If I could give more than 5 stars I would. I LOVED this book! Doon was perfect for my romantic heart. Sidenote: I’ve never watched Brigadoon the movie all the way through so I can’t tell you how the book compares to that.

Don’t you love a book that catches you from the start and tells you you’re going to love it? I read till midnight then awoke at 5 wanting to read but forced myself to sleep. I love having a book I wake up thinking about.

It takes place in SCOTLAND then a magical world in Scotland. The scenery was gorgeous with lush greens and mountains and men in kilts. The chemistry between the 2 possible couples was so huge and charged. Don’t worry, it stayed mostly clean.

Veronica/Vee and MacKenna/Kenna were both great MCs. I enjoyed both of their POVs. The main focus for this book was on Veronica. Destined for Doon has a red head on the cover so I’m thinking Kenna will be the focus for book 2.

I wish I could talk more about the book, but I don’t want to spoil anything. I’d love to see this series as a movie. That would be beautiful. Doon is for those who love YA romance and books that take you from real world to fantasy world.

After reading this you won’t be able to get enough of it so here’s some links. Pinterest: Doon Lorie’s Board. Pinterest: Doon Series. Blink on YouTube. I need book 2 asap.
