Last week I won a book from Good Reads website. It was called Bagpipes & Bullshot by Janice Horton. Being my first book review I decided to look into the author so that you know a bit more about her as well as her book.
Janice Horton is a Scottish lass true to heart. She lives in Scotland on the side of a hillside. She writes fiction novels that have a feel of romance and humour throughout. She has novels you can read such as the one I have reviewed and also others that i am looking forward to read and review in the future. i have found out that Janice also has Vodoo Romance novellas to add to her accreditation. She has also just wrote a non fiction book called How to Party Online. She is a very popular author with nearly 6000 members on her Twitter profile and she is very active in the online community.
So - onto the review of Bagpipes and Bullshot itself. I am posting on here the review that I wrote on the
Good Reads website so you can pop over there to have a look too. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars as it is simply fantastic and addictive! My husband Mike couldn't get a word out of me for two days!
This was a fantastic book. I won this book and I had not read a book by Janice Horton before. This book told about Orley, a young woman living in Texas who had yearned to go to Scotland for as long as she could remember. Then she meets Innes, a gorgeous Scottish Laird who offers her the job of a lifetime in Scotland working with him on his estate. She is unsure whether to go as her past hangs over her like a dark cloud but she is desperate to escape. She is also confused as to where her relationship with Innes really stands - is she his girlfriend working for him or does he just see her as an employee?
Orley takes the chance to travel to Scotland and is soon captivated by all she sees. But everything was not as she expected. The estate is in a state of financial ruin, Innes holds a secret that he did not tell her and all is depending on her expertise to save the Buchanan fortune. Throw in a hostile neighbour, Innes mother and a series of accidents all twisted in with her Scottish romance with Innes and you find yourself with a captivating story.
This book took me two days to read - I literally could not put it down. I fell in love with Scotland again through Orleys eyes and I was willing her romance with Innes to work, despite everything that was against them. This book is full of romance, history and laughs. It is definitely a book that once you pick up you can't put down until you are finished.
