Where to begin? Did I hate it or just really dislike it? One star? Why?

Wow. I finished this yesterday and thought I'd give it a day to see if it grew on me any. Nope.

Katie is a mystery novelist who travels to Scotland for a writer's convention. Since she's basically completely unknown to everybody this is a bit thin as a premise to begin with. There she meets Ian. Ian is a talk brooding Scot who doesn't say much. Katie falls instantly in love and has copious quantities of unsafe sex with the man. She immediately moves in with him and takes up as the matron of a sheep farm in the highlands. The rest of the book is Ian being grumpy, Katie refusing to actually ever talk to the man, Katie getting worked up by everything, Katie generally being TSTL, and lots of talk about sheep.

Didn't like the heroine. Didn't like the hero. Didn't much care for the supporting players. Thought the book generally lacked a plot. Thought that it was a collection of glimpses into the lives of two people that I would happily erase from my memory if I could.

Not the worst book I've read this year, but certainly in the bottom five.
