  • Light-hearted romance

    A Highlander is Coming to Town is the third book in the Highland, Georgia series, but you certainly don't have to read the first two to enjoy this one. Claire has come to Highland after quitting her gig as the lead singer in a Scottish rock band. She wants to simplify her life and so she takes a job as a caretaker for an elderly woman. She rides back and forth to town on her bike when she needs to do errands and when she runs into an issue with a flat tire, it's a good looking farmer that comes to her rescue. Holt is a farmer who has lived in Highland his whole life. He's a caring, considerate and helpful guy. When he comes upon Claire, all he wants to do is help and she immediately thinks he likely has an agenda. He is the type of guy who is always wanting to help, so that's exactly what he tells her! Claire and Holt form a tentative friendship and then things begin to take a romantic turn between them. With the things that Claire holds close to the vest, is she setting herself up for disaster where this relationship with Holt is concerned or will she finally see that he really wants what is best for her for no other reason than he wants her happy? This was a light-hearted, contemporary romance that moved well. There were a few times I would have liked to have shaken some sense into Claire, but I know she was dealing with the weight of her troubles. I enjoyed Holt a lot and felt like he was the exact balance that Claire needed.

  • Tis The Season

    3.5 star Review of A Highlander Is Coming To Town by Laura Trentham Laura Trentham is a new author to me. I love books that centre around; it's the most magical time of the year and also happens to be my most favourite holiday. It’s a time for family and friends to get together and celebrate life. This is Holt Pierson and Claire Smythe’s story and it was an enjoyable read. Holt is at a crossroads, torn between his duty to his family and their farm and wanting to spread his wings and leave Highland, Georgia. Claire is a Scottish singer, touring with her band and wants to get away from it all. When Holt and Claire meet, he is drawn to the mysterious woman who doesn't want to answer his questions. As their relationship develops, will Claire be happy to settle in a small town? What will happen when her secrets are revealed? This was a sweet, cute story with some romance, but not a lot of the holiday season which is what I expected when I chose this book.

  • An engaging story

    A Highlander is Coming to Town is only my second Laura Trentham book, and whilst I didn't quite love it as much as An Everyday Hero, I did enjoy it. As it was a complete change of pace, with a story that was sweet, lighthearted, and easy to read; and I really liked the speed at which the story unfolded. Not to mention, there is plenty of wonderful character development, and a very pleasing small town setting. Yet, if I'm honest I didn't quite connect with the heroine of this story Claire or the romance between her and Holt. But I thought Holt was great, and he and the lovely Ms Meadows really helped keep this story going, and for the couple of hours or so, it took to read, I was truly engaged. **I was kindly provided with an ARC via St Martin's Press in exchange for an honest review**

  • Sweet, enjoyable romance

    Holt Pierson is living his life in limbo. Now with his parents semi-retired, Holt is running the family farm by himself. He knows one day it will be totally be his responsibility but he is ok with that. With Christmas fast approaching and missing his parents, Holt finds himself drawn to the mysterious Claire Smythe the young lady from Scotland. Turns out Claire is living at the elderly Ms. Meadow's house helping her out. The more time Holt spends with Claire, the more he is drawn into her life and finds himself wanting to be involved deeper. Claire is enjoying being around Holt. It's the first time in her life that no one has wanted something from her because of who she is. As Claire's 25th birthday is fast approaching she knows that she has a big decision to make in regards to what she wants out of her life. Claire really doesn't have any type of relationship with her parents and that causes her to reflect back on a lot of her past. The new life she has been starting in Highland, GA is more exciting and comforting to her than life in Scotland. Just when Holt and Claire's relationship looks like it has found a happy medium, Claire's past comes tumbling into Highland. It will take a lot of soul searching for Claire to realize what she truly needs to be happy in her life......Holt and her life in Highland. I enjoyed this sweet story. Both Claire and Holt have always done the things that other people wanted them to do. For once they had both made the decision to grab life by the horns to find their true happiness. They both are sweet, caring people who really deserved their happy ending with each other.

  • What a sweet, charming romance!

    I absolutely adore each of the Highland, Georgia stories! It's a delightful southern small town that celebrates everything Scottish, every day. The first two books took place in the summer when the town hosts their annual Highland Games Festival, but this one takes place in the fall/winter a couple months after the last book ends. Claire, who sang with her band at the festival, stays behind to both hide from her family obligations in Scotland and to figure out what she's going to do about the next chapter in her life. She wasn't prepared for the sexy, charming Holt Pierson, a man as tied to his family's land as she is to her family's legacy. This easy-going story is simply delightful at every turn. Holt and Claire's sparkling chemistry pulls them both out of their comfort zones, while the Pierson family's history with Claire's employer adds substantial depth to all the related characters. Seeing Iain and Anna again was pure joy on every level and makes this a must-read book for anyone who read A Highlander in a Pickup. Full of the Christmas spirit with an ode to Robert Burns, this is a wonderful holiday story with a HEA for everyone. And in case you think there's not enough southernisms included, here's Holt's mother's answer when he says their new guests might make dinner awkward: His mom gave him an eye roll. “I hosted a luncheon between the Baptist and Methodist women’s groups. I can handle awkward.” There are many more instances of folksy humor and small town charm throughout the story. Highland, Georgia may be portrayed as idyllic, but that's the exact kind of escapism that I read for. Reading this book was like spending a lazy Sunday in a hammock with a pitcher of sweet tea. I couldn't have loved it more. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
