  • A Fun Read of opposites attract

    Another win for Trentham’s Highlanders series. Anna has the strict discipline that only a life in ballet can give you and Iain has a life discipline from a tough upbringing and military. But when these two allow their true inner feelings to show, they realize they are more alike in so many ways. After a natural attraction, yet hitting it off in the wrong way, Anna and Iain fall for each other but there’s just one problem – Iain must return to Scotland and his life there and Anna must stay in Highland, Georgia. Can they make this work? I did read the first book in the series and so was familiar with the characters already, this book picks up where that left off but with the focus on the secondary characters from the first novel. I don’t feel one needs to have read the first book, A Highlander Walks into a Bar, but it would greatly help to understand a few things. I really enjoyed this book, even if it took a while for the two main characters to actually ‘get there’ in their relationship. There was a lot of back and forth but it contributed to the characters. The way Laura Trentham writes brings things to life. I can totally picture this town, the people, the events in it – she writes with such realistic words. The reader will not be disappointed in this easy and fun read. I cannot wait for book three and Holt’s story to emerge!

  • Another Laura Trentham jewel!

    What can I say about author Laura Trentham? I love anything and everything that she writes. Her stories never, ever disappoint. We first visited the Scotland lookalike town of Highland, Georgia and met some actual Scottish highlanders and women mesmerized by them in the first book in the Highland, Georgia series A Highlander Walks Into a Bar. A Highlander in a Pickup starts right up where the first book left off, and it’s as good if not better. Anna Maitland is strong, competent and capable – on the outside. On the inside she’s a bit shaky with a lot of residual fears and issues from the past. But she is certain she can handle the annual Highland Games all alone. And then she meets Iain Connors: “With her brain taking a nap, she smoothed over the sleek dark eyebrow with her thumb.” Iain Connors is a quiet loner, an ex-military man trying to figure out what to do with the rest of his life. But he is certain he can handle those Highland Games he was asked in Scotland to fly to the States and take care of without any trouble. And then he meets Anna Maitland: “He nodded like a caveman. He was a kiss away from having to draw on walls to communicate.” With reactions to each other like that, and both of them sure they can run the Highland Games without any help, thank you very much, you know you are in for a wild ride. Author Trentham’s characters are sweet and funny and mixed up and often hilarious but always lovable. They get in laugh-out-loud situations, but then what they’ve been through or what they do has you reaching for a tissue. Peeling back the layers is a joyous voyage. And did I mention things can get a little steamy? Remember, this is a man in a kilt, after all! Thanks to Laura Trentham for providing an advance copy of A Highlander in a Pickup in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. This book is yet another example of Trentham’s excellent writing, strong character and plot development, and thoroughly satisfying endings. I loved A Highland in a Pickup and recommend it without hesitation and am impatiently waiting for the next book in this series or anything else this author writes.

  • It's Kilt vs. Tutu at the next Highland Festival!

    Anna, the local dance teacher, is tasked with organizing this year's Festival while her best friend, Izzy, recently married and now living in Scotland, is expecting her first baby any day now. She sends her husband's best friend, Iain, an authentic Highlander in every sense of the word, to help Anna pull together the annual festival. Iain needs a change of scenery before he commits to following his father's footsteps in Scotland, so he welcomes the chance to experience the Highlands through the eyes of the small town in Georgia. Learning to deal with the July heat and humidity isn't the worst of his problems, as he's consistently rebuffed by the infuriatingly gorgeous Anna, who is determined to show she doesn't need anyone's help with anything. This story was an absolute delight to read from start to finish. Iain is a swoon-worthy Highlander, to be sure, but he's also just a regular bloke who's trying to balance his duty and his happiness. Anna is the perfect Southern Belle, all steel and sweet tea in equal measures. Their flirtatious working relationship rang true throughout, and the gradual growth of their romantic connection was perfectly paced. My favorite part was the way the author infused the story with the poetry of Robert Burns. From providing words for Iain to express his feelings to the inspired new holiday event introduced in the epilogue, heartfelt tribute is paid to Scotland's national poet. After the charming HEA, we're treated to an intriguing introduction to the next book in this series. I was hooked right from the first book and loved this one even more. I highly recommend this series for all romance readers. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

  • A highlander in a pickup

    Anna is left in charge to put on her towns Highland festival this year. Although her friends sent Iain to help her with putting the event together she resent his help. It’s fun to watch as the banter and their chemistry leads to so much more then they ever expected.

  • Contemporary Romance

    A Highlander in a Pickup by Laura Trentham Highland, Georgia #2 Anna Maitland has something to prove and believes that running the Highland Games for her town will do the trick and also help her win the mayoral race. She is not thrilled to have Iain Connors show up ready to help her…I mean…men take over and that is NOT going to happen to her! Only…over time her perceptions begin to be possibly wrong and if she is wrong about one thing could she be wrong about others? Will they succeed in pulling off the games and find friendship or more before the end of the book? What I liked: * Iain: a gently giant who is so much more than he appears to be at first. I really REALLY liked him! Even when he made a decision based on a promise he gave his father and I wanted to tell him, “NO” – I still liked him. * Izzy: a bit caustic but with a heart of gold. She loves to dance and her dance students and her town. She has ideas and hopes to implement them. * The romance between Iain and Izzy – not too fast and gone into with open eyes – really wanted them to achieve their HEA * The snippets about Izzy and Alasdair – and the name they chose for their child * The side story about Gabby – hope to hear more about her and Keisha in the future * The new kilt design…what fun! * The fact that there were not BIG breakups that were thrown in just for a breakup to occur so they could make up. * The epilogue – pulling it all together AND hinting at the next book that will be about Holt and Claire – can’t wait What I did not like: * I can’t think of anything…just that the book ended with me wanting to know Holt’s story. Thank you to NetGalley and St. Marin’s Paperbacks for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars
