It Happened in Scotland

Kilts and Quilts, #6

"It Happened in Scotland," is a cozy seasonal read with strong family values, but is not exactly what I would label a romance novel or at least one that was a great, romantic read. Despite the romance seriously lacking any real details or chemistry among the characters I did find most of the book to be a fairly good read that was written well and contained a developed plot that I think is worth reading.

I have to confess that the main fault that I had with the actual story would have to be the ending. It was way too tacky. Without giving too much away to fellow readers I felt like the author did not need to clarify what was already told throughout the book in the ending. In my opinion the ending should wrap up the book and therefore should not refine what I already had read.

Yet, I did find Rachel, the heroine to be of interest. I also liked the overall foundation of the novel itself because in many ways it was a good holiday read that did possess flaws still contained enough hope and a second chance at love that I would suggest giving the actual story a read.
