The Trouble With Scotland by Patience Griffin - Review

Published: April 5, 2016
Number of pages: 384
Genre: Romance
Series: Kilts and Quilts #5

Return to the Scottish Highlands in the latest Kilts and Quilts novel from the author of The Accidental Scot—

The quilting ladies of the Scottish village of Gandiegow are known to piece together more than just fabric . . .

Life isn’t going as planned and Sadie Middleton is rethinking her whole future. Thankfully one thing is staying the same: she’s able to share her love of quilting with her grandmother Gigi. The two of them enter a contest and win an all-expenses-paid trip to the Kilts and Quilts retreat in the Scottish Highlands. But their victory turns hollow when Gigi passes away before they can go. Sadie is grief-stricken, but her brother convinces her to take the trip to Gandiegow anyway.

There she meets a charming circle of quilters who remind her of her grandmother—and Ross Armstrong, a handsome fisherman who brings a smile to her face. Newly single, Ross intends to enjoy his freedom. That plan goes awry as he comes to know Sadie—and a surprising spark is lit. Too bad some well-meaning folks want to protect Ross from getting hurt again and are determined to keep him and the American lass apart. . . .

My thoughts:
I know I say this each time I finish one of the books in this series but I liked this one even more than the last one.  With each book you get closer to the all the residents of Gandiegow and welcome the new ones. From the first page, well actually from the last book I have loved Ross. He is such a kind person and I wanted him to be happy. Sadie was such a sad person that all you wanted for her was to also find happiness. It was nice how her and Ross became instant friends. If only they could see they were so right for each other. Now I know Deydie is a rough woman but this time she upset me with some of the things she said and did but she would not be herself without this happening. I loved how the author described a traditional Scottish wedding when Moira and Andrew finally tied the knot. I will be starting the newest book in this series this week and I can't wait to see what is in store for us next.
