All Things Scottish With a Southern Twist – A review of “A Highlander Walks Into A Bar”

#A Highlander Walks Into A Bar” is a rollicking rom-com with a Scottish flair that’s set in Georgia. As I’m a voracious reader who lives in Georgia and loves all things Scottish, this title was a no-brainer for me. In the first book in author Laura Trentham’s new series we’re introduced to mother and daughter Rose and Isabel Buchanan who put on the annual Scottish games festival in their hometown of Highland, Georgia. On a recent trip to Scotland Rose is captivated enough by six foot tall Gareth to bring him home as a souvenir. But Gareth’s nephew Alasdair Blackmoor follows to satisfy himself as to Rose’s motives. Only he isn’t prepared for Isabel’s refreshingly quirky habit of thinking out loud and saying whatever pops into her head. When Alasdair agrees to stay a couple of weeks and help Izzy with the festival, all manner of complications arise, one of which is the magnetic attraction between them. But to what purpose when his stay in Highland is destined to be short-lived. Or is it?



Refreshingly heartwarming and sometimes laugh out loud funny, the characters are authentic and engaging. The plot is well developed with a few twists that create just enough tension and conflict to make this rom-com interesting. The pacing kept me flipping pages so that I finished it in one sitting. A delightfully entertaining read. Be sure to add it to your TBR list and mark your calendar for the release date, July 30, 2019.
