Books from the Backlog - To Scotland with Love

Today I'm linking up with Carole from Carole's Random Life of Books for Books from the Backlog.  I really enjoy the chance to feature a book that's been hiding in the piles of books for far too long!

Goodreads:  To Scotland with Love by Patience Griffin

Blurb:  Caitriona Macleod gave up her career as an investigative reporter for the role of perfect wife. But after her husband is found dead in his mistress’s bed, a devastated Cait leaves Chicago for the birthplace she hasn’t seen since she was a child. She’s hoping to heal and to reconnect with her gran. The last thing she expects to find in Gandiegow is the Sexiest Man Alive! She just may have stumbled on the ticket to reigniting her career—if her heart doesn’t get in the way.

Graham Buchanan is a movie star with many secrets. A Gandiegow native, he frequently hides out in his hometown between films. He also has a son he’ll do anything to protect. But Cait Macleod is too damn appealing—even if she is a journalist.

Quilting with her gran and the other women of the village brings Cait a peace she hasn’t known in years. But if she turns in the story about Graham, Gandiegow will never forgive her for betraying one of its own. Should she suffer the consequences to resurrect her career? Or listen to her battered and bruised heart and give love another chance?

Why It Needs to Come Off the Shelf:  I picked this book up thinking it was a mystery and when I realized it wasn't it kind of went to the back of the shelf.  However, right now I'm trying to get more non-mystery books in my reading life and this sounds like the perfect read to add.  


  1. Well I like mysteries the best but anything featuring Scotland has my attention. I'm reading a book set in Scotland right now, The Missing Years by Lexie Elliott.

  2. Katherine,
    I hope you enjoy my little slice of Scotland. Happy reading! And happy holidays!
    All the best,
    Patience...who wishes she was in Scotland right now

  3. I hope you enjoy it! I've owned this one for years and haven't managed to read it either!

  4. The cover does kind of look like it would be a mystery but I love the sound of this story. I do hope you enjoy it, Katherine!

  5. I have had my eye on these books for awhile - note the word quilting!!

  6. I've always wanted to visit Scotland so reading about it is a pleasure.
