Patience Griffin created a book that gripped my attention from the beginning. However, as I continued to read I got bored because the hero of this story started out being a jerk. Then the storyline evolved into a will-they-or-won't-they get together romance. It has a minor flaw in the heroine’s reasoning on why the romance between her and the hero would not work out.
First of all, the romance between the heroine Kit, an American, and Ramsey, the Scottish hero, starts off on the wrong foot from the beginning of this story. Ramsey finds out, from his oldest brother James, that he will be the one to chauffeur Kit around Scotland so she could have a meet and greet with some Scottish bachelors she hopes to sign up for a matchmaking service. Ramsey would rather be working on a job making money so he could buy his first boat for his fishing business that he wants to start on his own. To get back at his oldest brother and Kit at the same time, Ramsey comes up with a plan where he will cause havoc on Kit’s plans when she gets to Scotland by changing her reservation at the bar’s hotel to the noisiest room - then setting up darts tournaments there so she won’t get any sleep at nights, or having rowdy parties with Scottish bagpipes playing into the wee hours of the night.
Finally, when Ramsey and Kit do meet there is something magical between them but they both ignore it most of the story, with Ramsey saying he doesn’t want a long term commitment with a woman, just flings, and Kit saying to herself that Ramsey is not her type because he is a fisherman in Scotland. She cannot leave her mother and sisters to fend for themselves since their father lost all of the family money with bad business deals. Yet, this does not make any sense because we are told by the writer from the beginning of this story that Kit left her family in the lower 48 states and moved to Alaska to open a matchmaking business there.
Can Kit start a new matchmaking business in Scotland and make a go of it? Read on to find out!
In the delightful new Kilts and Quilts novel by the author of To Scotland with Love and Meet Me in Scotland, the Real Men of Scotland are waiting. And it’s a match made in Gandiegow…
Kit Woodhouse’s matchmaking business is such a success, she’s expanding to the Highlands of Scotland where the hot, prosperous, and kilted are anxious to connect. Now, looking to fill her stable with eligible bachelors, Kit’s arrived in Gandiegow to recruit potential Real Men of Scotland. It’s not until she meets her tour guide that she discovers just how real they can be.
With his sexy grin, jeans, and black wellies, Ramsay Armstrong is an unpolished hulk of a Scottish fisherman—and a skeptic when it comes to romance. Not exactly a man of “pairing attributes” when talking marriageable matches, but he does make Kit’s heart beat a little faster. Maybe it’s the scent of the sea in his hair. Maybe it’s the challenge. Maybe it’s the thrill of the unexpected. Then again, maybe it’s love.
