The Accidental Scot by Patience Griffin - Review

Published: December 1, 2015
Number of pages: 356
Genre: Romance
Series: Kilts and Quilts #4

Christmas in the small village of Gandiegow brings holiday cheer—and a chance for love between two strangers…

When her father is injured in an accident, Edinburgh engineer Pippa McDonnell comes home to Gandiegow to take over the family business, the North Sea Valve Company. Now she’s working overtime trying to fix NSV’s finances and find the cash to get her father proper medical care.

One possibility is to accept a partnership with MTech, an American firm desperate to get their hands on her da’s innovative valve design. He was against bringing in outsiders, but Pippa is desperate enough to at least listen to MTech’s charming representative Max McKinley.

As Christmas approaches and with the help of Gandiegow's meddling quilters, Pippa and Max slowly find themselves attracted to each other. Max seems honorable, but is he there to steal the valve design…or Pippa’s heart?

My thoughts:
Another Scottish book and another hit. With each addition to this series I love it even more and each book gets better and better. This book left me full of emotions from sadness to anger to happiness. I loved Pippa and Max from the very beginning. Max had so much sadness in his life that I just wanted him to find something to be happy about. Pippa felt the weight of the world on her shoulders and just needed to let someone help her. Then we had Miranda who was Max's co-worker. She was just plain evil and mean, I did not like her. Deydie and Bethia had a few tricks up their sleeves and left me smiling. Oh and I can't forget The McDonnell and Freda. I enjoyed their story line as well. I really liked Freda as she was a lovely person. I do like how this author plays with your emotions as I think it makes me love the characters even more.
