Happy Sunday fellow book geeks of the world. Today we are donning our kilts and reading our way through a little sneaky peak of the fabulous, A View to a Kilt by the one and only Wendy Holden!!
Wendy Holden though please? Queen of RomCom. Queen of Chick-Lit. Queen of the bestsellers! Get that crown Wendy babe 👑
Shall we get started?
♥️💙Blurb: London’s most glamorous glossy magazine is in trouble. Advertising revenues are non existent, and if editor Laura Lake can’t pick them up, she’s out of a job.
According to those in the know, Scotland is having a fashion moment. Haggis tempura is on Michelin-starred menus, smart spas are offering porridge facials, and a chain of eco-hotels is offering celebrity bagpipe lessons. So Laura’s off to a baronial estate in the Scottish Highlands to get a slice of this ultra-high-end market.
It’s supposed to be gorgeous, glitzy and glamorous. But intrigue follows Laura like night follows day. And at Glenravish Castle – a shooting lodge fit for a billionaire – Laura finds herself hunting for a scoop that won’t just save her job, it could save her life…
💙♥️My Mini Thoughts: If you haven’t already been introduced to Laura Lake then you have seriously been missing out! She is honestly one of the best chick lit characters around. Don’t worry if you haven’t though because you can jump straight in here with A View to a Kilt and read it as a stand-alone.
As always with a Wendy Holden read you end up completely engrossed in her words. With a decent character set up and a plot that seems pretty straight forward, it in fact is not and actually laughs in your face. It then calls you stupid and drags you back into the read with a bit of mystery and a lot of smirking! Can’t beat a book that not only smirks at you but has you smirking right back at it. Very clever writing. Well Done to our Wend on that one 👍🏻 thoroughly enjoyable!
A View to a Kilt is the escapism we all need and deserve. It’s funny, it’s bold, it’s crazy, it’s fast-paced and it’s bloody golden. Shit, I mean tartan!
