Return to the Scottish Highlands in the latest Kilts and Quilts novel from the author of The Accidental Scot— The quilting ladies of the Scottish village of Gandiegow are known to piece together more than just fabric . . . Life isn’t going as planned and Sadie Middleton is rethinking her whole future. Thankfully one thing is staying the same: she’s able to share her love of quilting with her grandmother Gigi. The two of them enter a contest and win an all-expenses-paid trip to the Kilts and Quilts retreat in the Scottish Highlands. But their victory turns hollow when Gigi passes away before they can go. Sadie is grief-stricken, but her brother convinces her to take the trip to Gandiegow anyway. There she meets a charming circle of quilters who remind her of her grandmother—and Ross Armstrong, a handsome fisherman who brings a smile to her face. Newly single, Ross intends to enjoy his freedom. That plan goes awry as he comes to know Sadie—and a surprising spark is lit. Too bad some well-meaning folks want to protect Ross from getting hurt again and are determined to keep him and the American lass apart. . . .
What I thought of this book.
The Trouble with Scotland is book #5 in the Kilts and Quilts series and just as good as the others!
I always felt a tad bit bad for Ross because it’s not that he was really ever jilted by Pippa but it was just always assumed by the small town that they would get married eventually, so he never really got to date anyone.
Now Pippa is married and Ross feels that it’s time for him to sow is wild oats that he never got too but it seems that fate may have other plans for the handsome Scot. Sadie is a young American woman who loves to quilt but is feeling a deep loss because her grandmother recently died. They had entered a retreat contest in Scotland and won but now she doesn’t want to go but her brother talks her into going.
When she gets there she is surrounded by older ladies who remind her of her grandmother and she just can’t do it. Ross swoops in and takes her away when she asked him for a ride. He didn’t know that it was going to forever change his life.
Sadie is sick though and has Cronic Kidney Disease and some of the older ladies, one in particular, doesn’t think she is the lady for Ross, and butts her nose in way too much.
Ross doesn’t want to fall for Sadie because he wants to play the field like he never got to before, but he doesn’t like seeing her surrounded by other handsome Scotts. 🙂
I always liked Ross so I was happy to finally get to his story and I really enjoyed how it played out. Ross is a very likable characters. I like how he doesn’t let Sadie’s sickness bother him as he never really sees her as sick. Sadie is a likable character as well. I could really feel the pain of losing her grandmother and then ending up in a town of old ladies who quilt.
Normally I like the town’s hard headed and nosy matriarch but this time I really wanted her to just stay out of Ross and Sadie’s business. She didn’t think that Sadie was good enough for Ross because she was sick and kept trying to keep them apart and it really drove me crazy.
Overall though I really enjoyed it and it was nice being back with the characters I have grown to love.
Kirsten Potter is one of my favorite narrators and she does a great job with this series.
