Thank you for stopping by I’m delighted to be sharing my review for His Convenient Highland Wedding by Janice Preston today. This book is the first in a series that is linked by a Scottish castle with a mystery running throughout the books. I can’t wait to read them all! A big thank you to Janice Preston for my review copy. First of all though let’s take a look at the description for the book…
ABOUT THE BOOK
Bought by her husband…
Bound by secrets of their past!
The start of The Lochmore Legacy – A Scottish castle through the ages! Earl’s daughter Flora McCrieff brought shame on her family once, now she discovers she must wed impossibly rich but low born Lachlan McNeill. He’s undeniably handsome, but a man of few words. Despite the attraction that burns between them, can she reach beyond his impeccable clothing to find the emotions he’s locked away for so long…?
Well I was sat here thinking about how to write this review and I just kept on smiling because that is how gorgeous this story was. I was instantly transported to Scotland and it really made for a stunning setting as we meet Flora and Lachlan. Their first meeting is unusual but even from that first moment there is a wonderful chemistry between the pair which is built perfectly throughout by Janice Preston. Flora has such a warm and likeable personality along with a determined edge, I couldn’t help but root for her! Then add in Lachlan to the mix he is determined, brooding (sigh) and has a past that isn’t perfect. I really am trying to be vague about the plot but you really do get the most romantic story. It was made even more perfect as Janice Preston’s inspiration for the character is Richard Armitage.
Any excuse for a gif 😉
The fact that there is a mystery running throughout this book and the following books in the series is a big positive for me. It was perfectly set up to make me very curious and I can’t wait to see how it will all play out in the series. However at the same time I loved Flora and Lachlan’s story how they slowly but surely built up a tentative friendship along with a chemistry that felt realistic and wasn’t rushed but carefully shown. I loved the way that this book also involved family whether it was estranged or lost. The minor characters all play an important part in this story along with some brilliant snippets of history that are perfectly placed.
Janice Preston consistently creates the most wonderful stories and His Convenient Highland Wedding is a perfect example of how well her characters and story really do come to life. This book is both romantic and charming along with carrying secrets that will captivate you until the final page! I can’t wait to uncover the mystery in this set of books and if book one is anything to go by then this is going to be a fabulous series!
