    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. 💖

    4-4.5 Stars!!

    4-4.5 Stars!! Such a great book! I really enjoyed reading about Alasdair and Izzy’s story and Rose and Gareth too! (Older people need love too!!) I wish it was this easy to meet a hot Scot in real life! A lot of the trouble that they all have to deal with is really easily solved, IF they had talked it out- that always frustrates me! I’d like to know more about Izzy and Alasdair in the epilogue! And I’d also like more on how the situation between Izzy and Alasdair and Rose and Gareth is working out but I guess that’s left for book 2!! I definitely recommend this book & I can’t wait to read the next book in the series! *I received this book to read and review at no charge from the publisher and I gave my honest opinion.*

    Everything I love in a romance!

    With a quirky heroine and a couple of sexy Scots, this was a fun read that had a whole lot of laughs wrapped up in a bunch of heart. I really loved Isabel and all of her quirkiness. She’s never been able to fully engage her filter and is prone to saying exactly what she is thinking, which at times can be quite embarrassing for her. She is still saddled with the insecurities from her youth and has a hard time seeing herself as the competent, smart, and beautiful woman that she is. Alasdair is a bit uptight and all business – until he meets Isabel and begins to see all things that have been missing from his life. He is her perfect complement, and I loved how these to were perfect for each other – accepting each other as they are but also allowing each other to see things in themselves with a new light and helping each other realize what they truly want out of life. I think my favorite part of the book was the relationship between Isabel and her mother, Rose, and Alasdair and his uncle, Gareth. Isabel has never really established an adult relationship with her mother and I loved watching that happen over the course of the book. And I loved Rose’s outlook on life and her ability to accept and move on as events unfolded. Alasdair and Gareth have been estranged, and it was nice to see them rekindle their close relationship from Alasdair’s youth, and I especially loved how Gareth helped Alasdair come to terms with his past. Highlands, Georgia looks to be the setting for some fun books. The epilogue gave a hint to the next story and I can’t wait to see what is in store for Anna. There are many other characters that were introduced in this first book and I can only imagine the fun backdrop that Highland and its Scottish festival will play as this series unfolds. Laura Trentham has a wonderful writing style that is easy to read and contains heart, heat, and humor. Her dialogue between characters and the scenes she creates for them are always entertaining and keep the stories interesting and the plot moving forward. This book moved a little slow in the beginning, mostly since it was setting up the background for not just the story but the series, but once the backdrop was sent, the characters took over and the story really came to life. I would definitely recommend this one since it had a bit of everything that I love in a romance. I received an advance reader copy from the publisher via NetGalley which I voluntarily reviewed.

    Romantic comedy at its best

    Romantic comedy at it's best, this novel is one that you have difficulty putting down once you start reading. Isabel Buchanan has grown up in her beautiful, graceful mother's shadow and whilst intelligent and a good organiser, she has always felt klutzy and awkward by comparison. Thus, when her mother comes home from a fact-finding mission in the Highlands with a Scotsman in tow, it is a recipe for disaster. What's more, Isabel has serious doubts about the stranger's intentions towards her mother and their own estate in Highland, Georgia. The plot thickens when another Scotsman arrives in search of his “friend”. Alasdair has been sent on a retrieval mission to extract his uncle from the clutches of an American woman who may be a money digger but meets her suspicious, funny and beautiful daughter instead. Intending to keep his eyes open, Alasdair offers his help with the Highland festival being organised by Isabel and her mother. The plot is warmhearted and humorous, as Isabel and Alasdair find themselves in one awkward moment after the next. Through it all, their attraction for one another grows until further surprise visitors arrive and put the kibosh on the Blackmoors' presence in Highlands. The novel is well-written and keeps the reader's interest throughout. One alternatively laughs out loud and cringes at Isabel's missteps. I loved the main characters in this book, their warmth, and kindness, as well as the somewhat quirky ancillary characters. The book is a standalone and comes to a successful close. I received a copy of this novel as a gift from NetGalley and this is my honest and voluntary review.
