    quirky fun

    *slight spoilers ahead* I usually don't enjoy romances with little white lies but Trentham manages to do it with minimal drama and without making anyone feel like they were wronged. We understand why Alasdair and Gareth do the things they do ... although I do have to say that I shook my head at Alasdair a few times. Typical guy thinking he knows best :) There's also a bit of insta-love involved, and not just with Izzy's mom bringing a guy home from her holiday. Our main couple does spend a lot of time together, though, and you get the feeling that they really have a connection & understanding. (I just wish, with all of the talk of Scotland, that we'd gotten a little more of their time there than what was in the epilogue.) By this point, Trentham is an absolute pro at the small town romance - delivering quirky characters, a boat load of humor, and a town full of eccentricities. Check out her other series if you haven't already - fabulous reads all around. Plus now she's giving us guys in kilts and all I can say is you rock, Trentham! Keep 'em coming 'cause I'm SO ready for Iain and Anna's story. And I really hope that there's something in the works for Holt ... a fiery Scottish lass to offset his All-American Boyness would just make my day *hint, hint* **Review given honestly and freely after receipt of a reader copy. This opinion is completely my own and was not influenced in any way.**

    💖💖💖 4.5 Sweet & Sexy Stars 💖💖💖

    I went into A HIGHLANDER WALKS INTO A BAR with only a few things in mind...it's by Laura Trentham, an author that I've read and enjoyed before, it's a small town romance, of which I'm a fan, and, it's set in the South, a win for me (note the blog name... 😘 ). I could not be happier with this book, which left me smiling from start to finish and laughing out loud on more than one occasion. As hard as she tries not to be, Isabel is wide open, a creative soul intent on hiding her light under a bushel. It takes a very sexy Scot on a mission to retrieve his erstwhile uncle to open her eyes and give her the push she needs to embrace the things that really make her heart sing. Turnabout is only fair, because spending time with Isabel in the very special town of Highland, GA, opens Alasdair's eyes to the really important things in life. The romance is sweet and sexy, a little bit steamy, but just the right amount for Izzy and Alasdair, and there is plenty of humor, which makes for a nice balance and a really entertaining and heartwarming read. Quirky supporting characters, including Isabel's mother and Alasdair's uncle, make the road to their enlightenment all the more delightful, and help create a very special place that I'm looking forward to visiting again. Which is great, because there is more Highland to come, and I can't wait. 💖

    Love this intro to a new series!

    A Highland, Georgia Novel I was so excited to get the opportunity to read the first story in a new series by Laura Trentham. This story is an eclectic mix of Southern charm and Scottish pride.  This is Isabel and Alasdair story and what a fantastic story it is. Isabel is quirky and original.  She is comfortable in the life she has led since her father passed away.  It's been her and her momma ever since.  Until, that is, her momma drops an unexpected surprise or what I like to call a souvenir from her trip to Scotland. Alasdair is on a mission.  He is on a mission to "save" his uncle from the American tart.  He arrives to Highland, Georgia determined to get in, get his uncle and get out.  Nobody the wiser.  But when he meets the Buchanan women, he falls fast and hard for the lovely Isabel. There are secrets aplenty that threaten to shatter the fragile relationships that are developed. But don't fear, secrets come to light and forgiveness is a true virtue. I absolutely fell in love with the magical town of Highland, Georgia that Ms. Trentham created.  Her vivid descriptions of the town and its people made me feel as though I was there, walking down Main Street, enveloping myself in the southern Scottish flair of the town. You are gonna fall in love with this sweet story that has heart, heat and enough swoon to make you want the story to never end! I cannot wait for the next installment!

    A fun fast read that will make you laugh

    Loved It! I usually read strictly only historical romance but being that this had Highlanders in it, I was curious. The title for me was a bit off putting, I feel it needed something other than this title. That aside, the writing had me at page one. Witty and funny, I was actually laughing out loud to my computer a few times. More than a few times I read the lines with a southern drawl which made it even funnier. The storyline is predicable, and actually could have been set in any time period. The characters yes are a bit shallow and could use working but it is a short story and really you are only reading about this quick snippet in their lives so it doesn’t detract at all. I would say that anyone looking for a fast, fun read and believes in two worlds colliding romance then this book is for you. I look forwards to reading more from Laura Trentham.

    Funny, sweet, sexy, sneaks up on you

    A Highlander Walks Into a Bar is the first in author Laura Trentham’s new Highland, Georgia series and it is fantastic. Other stories like this, contemporary romance, rom-coms, two opposites, sexy foreigner, etc. yell at you. Wave frantically to get your attention and get you laughing and sighing. Laura Trentham’s stories whisper to you, softly, subtly, starting with the very beginning of the story, sneaking up on you until you are so invested and drawn in that you can’t stop turning the pages. The buildup is so quiet and almost secret, just rolling along until it’s like you’re caught in a spider’s web. You are hooked and so are the main characters. Izzy is a bit – well, a lot - suspicious of this charming gentleman her mom brought home from Scotland. Looks like she’s just about invited him to move in for good. And Izzy’s even more suspicious when Alasdair shows up a couple of days later looking for his uncle Gareth. What do these two smooth guys want? But hold on – the outside temperature in Highland, Georgia isn’t the only thing that’s hot. Alasdair is so charming, so handsome, so sexy – she can barely speak when she is around him. Izzy is marvelous She’s protective of her mother and loyal to her town with its Scottish roots and annual Scottish festival. She’s different from the usual Southern Belle – no artifice, no wiles, speaks her mind, and she’s also often unintentionally hilarious. Clumsy, awkward, tongue-tied when she’s not blurting out something totally inappropriate, laugh out loud funny. Alasdair is suave and smooth but that kind of goes out the window when he’s around Izzy. And he does not like Holt – the alfalfa, turnip, gentleman, squash, eggplant, actually soybean and pig – farmer who seems to think he and Izzy belong together. A Highlander Walks Into a Bar is charming from start to finish. Of course there are some secrets and some bumps on the road to true love, but this story is full of characters you will love and want to know for a long time. Author Trentham does an excellent job of keeping you hanging both in Georgia and Scotland, wondering how things can be resolved without too much heartache, provides a very satisfying ending, and a delightful teaser for the second book in the series. Thanks to St. Martin’s Press via NetGalley for the ARC of A Highlander Walks Into a Bar in exchange for my honest review. I loved it and recommend it without hesitation, as well as anything else written by Laura Trentham.
