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' bed, a devastated Cait leaves Chicago for the birthplace she hasn't seen since she was a child. She's hoping to heal and reconnect with her gran. The last thing she expects to find in Gandiegow is the Sexiest Man Alive. 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. If Cait 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?

"Griffin's lyrical and moving debut marks her as a most talented newcomer to the romance genre." (Publishers Weekly Starred Review)
Live, love, laugh...
I got this book thinking it was a Highlander story but it is set in modern day Scotland. The things I learned by listening to this book are:
- Scottish men were amazing hundreds of years ago... and they still are!
- I absolutely love the Scottish accent
- Great narration makes the time go by quicker.
Yes I recommend this book! It's not only set in Scotland with that amazing accent and great narration but our hero is also a movie star... I'm in love!

I really didn't care for the female lead much. To be blunt, she's a take it or leave it kind of female. Spent most of the books whining about herself and not taking the time to talk to those around her.
Not a fan of conflicts where all one has to do is go to the person they are angst towards and say what's wrong. Generally, in reality when you confront someone about a problem they tend to not get all in a tizzy when you approach them with calm maturity. Conflict resolution's that can be resolved in one conversation do not make for interesting conflict, especially if those conflicts last almost the entire book.
This is also not really a romance so much as it's a story about a whiny woman who has never taken charge of her own life and when she finally does the reader/listener doesn't like her enough to care.
The rest of the characters felt very flat and one dimensional.
I didn't hate it or like it so I am going stick with my headliner, it's not bad. I probably would not recommend this to the average listener/reader.
Snappy, enjoyable, family
Emilie Richard's Shenandoah Valley quilt series.
The narration flowed and the inflection was good.
Women friends and a hunk of man too.
Ms. Griffin writes like we talk and think. Some of the internal conversations were dead on. Good snarky comments I wish I would have made and some I have.
Narrator was wonderful, and the story does not disappoint. I went to find the next story in the series, and I guess it still being written! I really enjoyed this book.
Yes, it was a good down to earth love story that's
Yes when the son got sick it was very moving yet not over the top
Wondering what the second book will be about.
Wonderful story of family love conquers all. Can't wait to read Book 2.
Kate's Gram and how she was hard on the outside but super soft on inside.
Very well done. "Thumbs UP"
The narrator saved the day. otherwise a boring story. The characters seemed flat. For me this was a missed opportunity to tell an interesting story.
