Donella Spencer takes a month-long holiday to Scotland to recharge, relax, and get away from her grandbaby-hungry mother. True, her relatives are eccentric—they like to greet people inside the airport with bagpipes—but the Isle of Mull is tiny and surely there can’t be any single men to bother her. However, before she can even change out of her comfy plane clothes, she comes face-to-face with her childhood crush. Except Robbie Campbell grew up nice, and tall, and maybe even charming. If only she could forgive him for what he did to her as a child.
Robbie returns every summer to Mull to help his parents’ business and to give his daughter a chance to better know her family. What he never expected was to see Donella Spencer again—the girl who used to follow him around as a kid and embarrass him. He’s glad to apologize, but he didn’t expect for the annoying girl to grow up to be a smart, funny, and beautiful woman. Even with her crazy family, he wishes he could have a chance with her. But his daughter is his world and Donella is clearly afraid of children.
As the pair spend more time together—including at a strange safari-themed birthday party—they learn that maybe they fit together better as adults. Will Donella be able to love Robbie’s daughter and get over her fears? Can Robbie open his heart and trust another woman? Or, will they both leave at the end of the summer and pretend nothing ever happened?
