"Transporting Debut Novel"

Fresh Fiction Review

Kilt Trip

Reviewed by S. Lyn Collins

Romance Comedy | Women's Fiction

Alexandra Kiley's debut novel KILT TRIP transports you to Scotland along with consultant, Addie MaCrae. Addie lives her life out of a suitcase as she helps tour companies all over the world improve their businesses.  She always avoided Scotland since it reminded her too much of her mother who died and her father who emotionally abandoned her in his grief. The new company her mentor recently started is relying on her to quickly solve the problems with family-run Heart of the Highlands Tours and move on to the next assignment.  Logan Sutherland is attracted to Addie when she joins his tour under a fake name but resists working with her ideas to change the company from a unique out-of-the-way sight that touches visitors' lives to a routine traipsing to over-visited tourist attractions. As Logan shows her his country and Addie finds places where her mother took photographs, the couple must decide how to resolve the conflict in their vision for the company. Addie struggles to open up and learn to be vulnerable after years of pulling away to protect herself while Logan fights his fears that he will cause the company to fail. 
A beautifully crafted story of a woman finding family again all set in the castles and gorgeous descriptions of the Scottish Highlands. This book makes you want to jump on a plane and fly straight to Scotland. Let's hope that we get to see more of these characters. Maybe sequels with Logan's brothers?

SUMMARY

Ready or Scot...

Globetrotter Addie Macrae always follows her wanderlust. As a travel consultant, she jet sets around the world—anywhere but Scotland. But when she’s sent on assignment to help a struggling family-run tour company in the Highlands—and save her own job—Addie packs away her emotional baggage and turns on the professional charm.

Rugged as the land he loves, Logan Sutherland’s greatest joy is sharing the beauty of Scotland’s hidden gems…even if it means a wee bit of red ink on the company’s bottom line. The last thing Logan wants is some American “expert” pushing tourist traps and perpetuating myths about the Loch Ness Monster—especially when Addie never leaves her desk to experience the country for herself.

As they wage an office war, Logan discovers Addie’s secret connection to Scotland: a handful of faded Polaroids of her late mother. Hoping for a truce, he creates a private tour to the places in the pictures to help Addie find closure and appreciate the enchantment in less-traveled destinations, never expecting the off-limits attraction sparking between them. But Addie’s contract is almost up, and magic won’t pay the bills. They can’t afford distractions, but how can Addie do her job if she hasn’t explored all Scotland—and Logan—have to offer?
