Blurb: The situation seems ideal: a month off work and a sweet deal to extend his stay in an unexpected paradise. Needless to say, Aaron is thrilled to snag an extra few days in Scotland after his work conference to soak up the magic of the country.

However, his plans to tourist his way around Edinburgh before his January 1st flight home are thwarted by a strange influx of people into the capital. Add in trains that don’t run on New Year’s, fireworks, first-footing, and running into the same gorgeous stranger as he exits every other shop, and Aaron really should have googled what “Hogmanay” was before he found himself whisked into the whirlwind of Scottish revelry and the impossible draw of that sexy stranger who tastes like scotch and, impossibly, already feels like the beginnings of home.

Review:

I can take the idea of quick holiday/vacation romance – but alas, it just doesn’t work for me in this one. The story itself feels both half-baked and unfinished. Then the writing also doesn’t work for me – it doesn’t give enough character-build to make me care about Aaron and his short trip to Scotland, much less his love interest.

Plus, the ending is pretty much an open one, not even a happy for now. It’s not the kind of ending I expect for a holiday story.

Bummer….

Overall Impression: It was okay but not good

*I received a copy of this book from the publisher in return for a fair and honest review.*
