I don’t understand Americans.
Or, as we say in Scotland, I dinna understand ye eedjits.
And I definitely dinna understand the crazy mother-in-law of my cousin Declan. Who in their right mind names a wee dog Chuffy?
I’m stuck in New York after ma agent makes a bloody mess of an otherwise good endorsement contract for a sports towel company, and this crazy American holiday–Thanksgiving–is in two days.
The invitation to spend it in Mendon, Massachusetts, with the Jacoby family is about as appealing as rotten haggis.
As far as I can tell, Thanksgiving is about stuffing yerself silly, watching pathetic American “football,” while fighting with relatives ye only see once a year.
If I wanted that last one, I’d head back to Scotland, where we dinna need a holiday to be salty to each other.
Ma firm answer is nae.
Until I remember Amy is part of the family.
Suddenly, I’m available.
Eager, even. Perhaps she’ll pull ma wishbone. I hear that’s part of the Turkey Day festivities, aye?
What I canna admit, though, is how she pulls ma heartstrings, too.
Which shouldna feel better than the wishbone, but it does.
And here comes Amy's mother with another holiday tradition, this one a bit early.
A sprig o’ mistletoe, dangling right above Amy’s bonnie head.
Shopping for a Turkey features Scottish football player Hamish McCormick and Amy Jacoby as they navigate unusual cultural norms, new traditions, and the undeniable attraction between these two characters, who have appeared as supporting players in Julia Kent's New York Times-bestselling Shopping series.
It's their turn to have their own all-new spinoff series. And to pull the wishbone. ;)
Finally getting Hamish’s story!
This is Shopping for a Turkey, book 1 of Julia Kent's Shopping for a Highlander series! Whoo hoo! We have been waiting on this book with baited breath...... FINALLY we get a book for Hamish! Okay y'all, if you have never read any of the Shopping series by Julia Kent, what freaking rock have you been hiding underneath? I mean, come on people! This series is so darn funny and cringeworthy at the same time! I love the Jacoby and McCormick families (ok, so NOT every one of them...shhhh don't tell anyone) and all of the crazy antics that the nutcases and Chuffy and Chuckles cause! Read this one and then do yourself a favor, go back to the very beginning and read each and every wacky wonderful word written in this series! Let me know what you think when you finish, will you?
Most of my laugh out loud moments while reading, are due to Julia Kent and her wicked, fun, twisty storylines. This one is at the top of that list. I have loved all the “Shopping” books, this Turkey extravaganza reminds us what is best about this holiday and of course, the addition of the Jacoby’s own brand of family entertainment. Grab an adult libation, put your feet up and enjoy!
The Jacobys are at it again. I love this crazy family. Adding in the McCormicks and one hot Scottish one and it makes for one interesting holiday. I laughed so hard my sides her. Julia Kent does it again! Read It!!!
