Highland Fling by Katie Fforde

Link to author site
I miss reading fiction book.  Since I started law school a year ago, my reading consists of casebooks and supplements for the classes I am taking.  You can just imagine the anticipation I have over the summer when I found this book.  I borrowed it from my library, but I could not read it for 5 more weeks.  I have forgotten to renew it a couple of times, and paid fines close to ten dollars.  I finally got a chance to read it in our Colorado vacation. It was wonderful.

The plot just works for me.  Jenny is believable.  I like her interaction with Ross. I was thinking that there was not nearly enough scenes with the both of them in there. Still, I can feel the electricity between the two jumping off the page as I read.  It was thrilling.  I feel the same when I discovered my favorite authors like Kathleen Woodiwiss, Eloisa James, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Paullina Simons, Jennifer Donnelly and the likes.  This particular author is lighthearted in comparison.   She is more similar to Jill Mansell, another favorite author of mine.

I cannot wait til I have vacation again to read it.  Right now, it's Civil Procedure, etc.

From the author's website:
When 'Virtual Assistant' Jenny Porter's boyfriend accuses her of being impulsive, soft-hearted and unbusinesslike, dashing off to Scotland to sort out a failing mill for one of her clients may not be the best way of proving him wrong. And promising to help run a mobile burger bar before she's even found her feet doesn't help matters. When she finds herself determined to save the mill - whatever her client's wishes - it seems that Henry's accusations may have contained more than a grain of truth.

So when Jenny's awkward encounters with the abrasive but disconcertingly attractive Ross Grant develop into something more complicated - just as Henry arrives in Scotland to reclaim her - it's time for Jenny to make some decisions. Should she do the sensible thing and follow Henry back to London? Or is her Highland adventure more than just a fling...?
