A Highland, Georgia Novel…
I absolutely love this series by Laura Trentham. The whimsical mix of Scotland and the South. A hodgepodge of cultures that mix beautifully.
This is the story of Ian and Anna. While this story can be read as a stand-alone, I had the privilege to read the first book in this series, where we briefly meet both Ian and Anna.
Anna is a true red-headed spitfire. She is southern charm wrapped in a “Bless your heart” personality. She is bound and determined to need no one. When she gets put in charge of the annual Highland Festival she is frazzled but she is going to do it all!
Ian is from Cairndow, he is the groundskeeper’s son. He has been selected to help Anna with the festival. He is a true testament of the saying “still waters run deep”.
I absolutely love the world of Highlands, Georgia. The world that Ms. Trentham has created with this series is so visual. I can “see” myself walking down Main Street. I can visualize the beauty of Stonehaven and the pageantry of the festival.
Ms. Trentham has made her characters believable. They are not all glossy and perfect, in fact, the way she describes Ian shows that it’s not the outer beauty, but the inner beauty that radiates and pulls Anna into his world.
I am so looking forward to the next book in this series, I hope there are many, many more! If you are looking for a whimsical, funny and swoony story, get your hands on this!
