A Secret Scottish Escape Julie Shackman 4* #Review @G13Julie @0neMoreChapter_ @rararesources #Romance #heartwarming #ASecretScottishEscape #BlogTour #BookReview

Escape to the beautiful Scottish Highlands for a heartwarming and feel good cosy romance that will whisk you away.

When Scotland’s sleepiest hamlet becomes the centre of hot gossip, Layla Devlin finds herself caught in a mystery…

When Layla’s fiancée has an unexpected heart attack and dies – in another woman’s arms, no less – Layla is determined to pack up and leave Loch Harris, the village she’s always called home. But an unexpected inheritance and love for her quiet corner of Scotland send her down a new path.

Now Layla finds herself facing a whole new kind of drama. Rumours swirl that a celebrity has moved into Coorie Cottage and Layla is determined to have him headline her opening night at local music venue The Conch Club. But the reclusive star is equally determined to thwart Layla’s efforts. Rafe Buchanan is in hiding for a reason, and soon his past comes to Loch Harris to haunt him…

I received a copy of this book from One More Chapter via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

My Thoughts…

This is a heartwarming story about finding your purpose in life. Layla feels heartbroken and betrayed when her fiance dies unexpectedly. His hurtful secrets make her want to run away. Music and helping the community she loves help her heal. She has supportive relationships with the father who raised her and her best friend. Mysterious men with secrets is a recurring theme in this story, and one of them offers a second chance for Layla if she’s courageous enough to try again. The setting is well described. This is an uplifting story of love and loss.
