Title: A Highlander Walks Into A Bar
Author: Laura Trentham
Publisher: St. Martin’s Press
Release Date: July 30, 2019
The timeless romance, soaring passion—and gorgeous men—of Scotland comes to modern-day America. And the rules of love will never be the same…
Isabel Buchanan is fiery, funny, and never at a loss for words. But she is struck speechless when her mother returns from a trip to Scotland with a six-foot-tall, very handsome souvenir. Izzy’s mother is so infatuated by the fellow that Izzy has to plan their annual Highland Games all by herself. Well, not completely by herself. The Highlander’s strapping young nephew has come looking for his uncle…
Alasdair Blackmoor has never seen a place as friendly as this small Georgia town—or a girl as brilliant and beguiling as Izzy. Instead of saving his uncle, who seems to be having a lovely time, Alasdair decides he’d rather help Izzy with the Highland Games. Show her how to dance like a Highlander. Drink like a Highlander. And maybe, just maybe, fall in love with a Highlander. But when the games are over, where do they go from here?
When I got the email for this blog tour, I initially had no interest. The title sounded goofy but then I read what it was about and decided not to judge a book by its title and I’m so glad I didn’t. I felt in love with Laura Trentham after reading her book The Military Wife. I think Highlander actually topped that book.
There is just so much humor in this book that I caught myself laughing out loud several times. Izzy is such a relatable character with her awkwardness and lack of grace and her aggressive, overprotection of her mother. The mixture of culture between Southern Charm and Scottish sirehood added an authentic flavor that I wanted to last forever and ever.
🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 (5 out of 5) I really look forward to being an on going fan of Laura Trentham’s. My favorite character in this book was actually one of the supporing characters, good ol’ southern boy Holt. I hope and pray that he gets a story in the series for his HEA because he totally stole my heart.
