From the author of The Trouble With Scotland—a charming new romance set in the beautiful Scottish Highlands. Christmas in the sleepy Scottish fishing village of Gandiegow this year is a time for quilting, patching up broken hearts, and rekindling an old flame... After pulling herself out of a three-year fog of grief over the loss of her husband, Joe, Rachel is bringing their five-year-old daughter to see his hometown of Gandiegow and visit with his grandfather. But Rachel wasn’t planning on running into Joe’s cousin, the man who made her have second thoughts at the altar... Brodie has come home to help his grandfather’s fishing business, but he’d prefer not to see Rachel. Although she did break his heart six years ago, the grip she has on him hasn’t faltered. If they can stop butting heads long enough and learn to overcome the past, they may find new love in the new year...
Here is what I thought
If you don’t already know I absolutely love this series! Each one it just gives you those warm fuzzy feeling! I don’t read a lot of contemporary romances but there is just something about this small town in Scotland that gives me all the feels.
This one was perfect for this time of the year because it starts out at Christmas time. Bringing her daughter to meet her grandfather gives Rachel a chance to try and make things right between her and Brody, the man she really loves, but ended up marrying his cousin. I really liked Rachel, but I didn’t blame Brody for really making it hard on her. To be jilted like he was and then have her come back and just think now that Joe is dead they can just start a nice life. Brody was burned bad by her and he distrust her. I really liked Brody.
One thing I really love about this series is that you get to follow the lives of characters from the past novels as well. Also in this one, there are a couple of side characters who find love as well which was sweet. I am sure you could probably read these as stand alone’s but I think you would get more out of them if you read them in order and get to know all the characters from beginning to end.
