Review: A Highlander Walks into a Bar

A Highlander Walks into a Bar (Highland, Georgia, #1)




The timeless romance, soaring passion―and gorgeous men―of Scotland come to modern-day America. And the rules of love will never be the same…


Isabel Buchanan is fiery, funny, and never at a loss for words. But she is struck speechless when her mother returns from a trip to Scotland with a six-foot-tall, very handsome souvenir. Izzy’s mother is so infatuated by the fellow that Izzy has to plan their annual Highland Games all by herself. Well, not completely by herself. The Highlander’s strapping young nephew has come looking for his uncle…


Alasdair Blackmoor has never seen a place as friendly as this small Georgia town―or a girl as brilliant and beguiling as Izzy. Instead of saving his uncle, who seems to be having a lovely time, Alasdair decides he’d rather help Izzy with the Highland Games. Show her how to dance like a Highlander. Drink like a Highlander. And maybe, just maybe, fall in love with a Highlander. But when the games are over, where do they go from here?

Rating: 5-stars


A Highlander Walks into a Bar by Laura Trentham is full of humor, action, and romance. Inside, readers will find sexy as hell Highlanders wearing kilts. They protect and defend those they love. A nephew out to protect his uncle from being taking advantage of ends up bringing an unforeseen problem to the ladies. His uncle falls for an American woman and agrees to come to her to help her with festivities. Only he ends up falling deeper in love with her. But there comes a time, when his secret and lies will need to come out…and when they do, will they lose everything they gained?

Both mother and daughter have been through a loss. Recently, losing a father isn’t easy for Izzy. Neither is it easy for her mom to be lonely. They both needed someone to open up their hearts to joy again. These Scots have a way of making one laugh so hard. Especially, when the young nephew decides to win a bunch of Scottish games to win his woman’s heart. Only he had it all the time…same with his uncle who is an Earl. It was funny to watch how both men almost came to the knees begging for forgiveness. Forgiveness was a huge theme in this romantic comedy. The mothers in this book added spice, wisdom, and humor to the plot. I really enjoyed following this cast of characters as they made messes both career wise and emotionally.
