What Happens in Scotland | [Jennifer McQuiston]

What Happens in Scotland

When Lady Georgette Thorold awoke she saw...her corset hanging from the armoire...a very handsome, very naked Scotsman lying beside her...and a wedding ring on her finger! Before the attractive stranger can tell her his name, Georgette does the only sensible thing - she runs for it. Little does she know, James MacKenzie isn't clear on what happened the night before, either. All he knows is that his money is missing and the stunning woman who just ran from the room is either his wife or a thief...or possibly both.

    Story
    "Very slow start ... almost gave it up"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The first of the book dragged on and on ... I was at the point of putting it down as unreadable. I'm glad I didn't because the second half was worth hearing.


    What could Jennifer McQuiston have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    She could cut down the H/H rushing around trying to find each other ... all the while dragging the book down as to what occurred the night before .... way way too long on that aspect of the story IMO.


    Which character – as performed by Lana J. Weston – was your favorite?

    The hero, James, was my favorite. Even when he was hateful ... I liked him. The narrator did a good job ... even with the extensive dragging parts of the story.


    Was What Happens in Scotland worth the listening time?

    As I mentioned before, only half of it was worth the listen. That is why the rating is so low from me. The last half was actually a 3.5 out of 5 stars for me .... the beginning half was a -2 star if that were possible here.


    Any additional comments?

    Knowing what I do now, and even enjoying the second half, I would not have missed not reading this book. Perhaps it is your cup of tea throughout ... everyone has different tastes after all.

    Story
    "Painfully slow paced..."

    I really wasn't impressed by this audiobook. It was just soooo slow. Just to give you an idea the whole story takes place in a 24 hour timeframe and this book is over 10 hours long. The first 5 hours of the story is just Georgette and James looking for each other after a night of drunken madness. Somehow by the magic of storytelling they manage to marry and fall in love within just one day. I really have issues with a story where I Love yous are exchanged within 24 hours. It's just not believable. At least the narrator was very good and I really liked her Scottish accent.

    Story
    "AN ENTERTAINING RIOTOUS RIVETING HISTORICAL ROMP"

    Right from Chapter 1 this totally implausible and unrealistic listen set in 1842 drew me into a madcap, lighthearted, enjoyable and entertaining world where Georgette (suffering from total amnesia) woke up in tangled sheets next to a bare man and promptly ran out on him but James too later woke up and remembered nothing. As they separately tried to piece together the events that led them to a wedding ring and a trashed room (but for very different reasons), I found myself saying "oh, just one more Chapter" until the very end which was around 3.30 am (divorce papers now pending!!).

    They slowly stumble across clues, whilst retracing their steps in the hope of finding each other and unravelling the truth, along the way they encounter some entertaining richly portrayed characters, adventure, fun, danger, family misunderstandings, regrets, attempted murder, passion, desire and love. As the storyline frantically twists and turns they each develop a totally misguided idea of one another and when they finally meet it's hard for them to trust one another but the mutual attraction is definitely there.

    Worth a credit? YES a real fun listen set in a 24 hr time period and pure escapism at it's absolute best. A new author but I'll definitely be looking out for more of her books in the future.

    Story
    "A good listen."

    This was a good read/listen. It was fun. I do wish there had been more dialogue in the book. There was not enough of that. The hero and heroine were both strong characters. The heroine was not whiny or wimpy, she was very likable. Loved the maid Elise, she was funny. There was no hot and steamy sex to speak of until the very end and it was not extreme but that was okay.

    The narrator did a decent job, however, she could have made the men's voices sound a little more like men. If she does that in the future she will be a great narrator. Her reading voice was excellent.

    "Different kind of romance."

    Well read and different from the usual historical romance. The ending was predictable but still enjoyable getting there. I will be looking out for her next book, and the next book narrated by Lana J. Weston.
