Welcome to the charming Scottish seaside town of Gandiegow—where two people have returned home for different reasons, but to find the same thing.…
Caitriona Macleod gave up her career as an investigative reporter for the role of perfect wife. But after her husband is found dead in his mistress’s bed, a devastated Cait leaves Chicago for the birthplace she hasn’t seen since she was a child. She’s hoping to heal and to reconnect with her gran. The last thing she expects to find in Gandiegow is the Sexiest Man Alive! She just may have stumbled on the ticket to reigniting her career—if her heart doesn’t get in the way.
Graham Buchanan is a movie star with many secrets. A Gandiegow native, he frequently hides out in his hometown between films. He also has a son he’ll do anything to protect. But Cait Macleod is too damn appealing—even if she is a journalist.
Quilting with her gran and the other women of the village brings Cait a peace she hasn’t known in years. But if she turns in the story about Graham, Gandiegow will never forgive her for betraying one of its own. Should she suffer the consequences to resurrect her career? Or listen to her battered and bruised heart and give love another chance?
Fantastic Love Story and Fantastic Series!
This is Book 1 in Ms. Griffin’s Kilts and Quilts series, but I happened to read it after Book 2…so I was able to gain more knowledge about the Scots people living in Gandiegow, Scotland, and what led up to Gabe and Emma’s story in Book 2. I am amazed at Ms. Griffin’s knowledge about the language and habits of the Scots people. I am of Scots ancestry myself and this contemporary story about the Scots in this tiny seacoast village made me feel like I was at home with them, that I understood them. I cried when they had a funeral for a loved one, I cried when there were personal traumas and celebrations in the vilagers’ lives, I cried over their resolute faith in and love for each other, and I rejoiced in this special romance and promise of a wedding. I fell in love with Graham, his son Duncan and grandson Mattie. My heart hurt with Cait’s struggles from past failures and rejections and applauded her strength and honesty in changing her life onto a positive course. I dearly loved this romance, and I dearly love this series. I can hardly wait for Book 3!
