To Scotland With Love by Patience Griffin - Review

Published: June 3, 2014
Number of pages: 362
Genre: Romance
Series: Kilts and Quilts Novel #1

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?

My thoughts:
This was a new author to me and I do not know why I did not pick up this series before. I enjoyed following Cait to her home town of Gandiegow. The town is a very small town where all the residents are very close and like one big family. Now in the beginning and for the whole first part of the book I did not like Cait. She made me so mad that she was wanting to rat our Graham and tell the world where he was. Even though I did not like Cait I felt bad for her and the way her Gran treated her when she came back home. But as the book goes along she grew on me. I loved Graham from the moment I met. For this being a romance book there was a lot of sadness in it. I did like the ending though. I am looking forward to reading the next book to see who we will get to know now.
