Review: What Happens in the Highlands by Kelsey McKnight

Match made in heaven or maid of dishonor?

Tight-laced Rose Hensel arrives in Scotland for her best friend’s wedding with a plan—to be the greatest maid of honor ever, let loose for the first time in years, and find out what Scottish guys really wear under their kilts. After meeting the best man, she thinks she found the man who checks all the boxes for a no-strings-attached romp among the heather.

Lachlan Calder-Mackinnon knows how to show a girl a good time. Gourmet dinners in castle ruins, picnics among rolling hills, and a seaside escape create some unforgettable dates. But as the fling begins to morph into something more, an unexpected wedding guest threatens to ruin Rose and Lachlan’s new romance.

With a plane ticket in one hand and her broken heart in the other, Rose prepares to head home to reality. However, she’s about to learn that what happens in the Highlands doesn’t always stay there.

My Review: 

A fun romance that take place in the Scottish Highlands.  

This book has everything I was looking for.  The main characters, Rose and Lachlan, were a lot of fun to read about.  They had great chemistry once they let their guard down.  Rose traveled from New Jersey to Scotland for her best friend’s wedding.  She didn’t plan to meet a man while there, but she did.  And, that man just happened to be the best man, the cousin of the groom, who was a Lord and lived in his very own castle.  

I would almost want to classify this book as a romantic comedy because of the crazy things that happen between Rose and Lachlan.  But then, there is that touch of drama too, especially with the ex-girlfriend.  All around, this was a fun book to read.   

This quote from the book really sums up the story:
The future was full of possibilities now, the promise of adventure and love and passion like I had only thought existed in romance novels. For the first time in my life, I shed the burden of staying safe and being responsible. All it took was a hen night, a wedding, and a week in a castle to show me that what happened in the Highlands didn’t always need to stay there.
