A very good, sweet, funny read. Loved all the characters and most especially the quilters. The are too funny!

I think, if you like a read that goes smoothly along and has a good ending, this book is for you.

This would have been a 5 star review if the words had all been as they talk in Scotland. It was littered with American versions which didn't fit with the setting. Great story though, and the setting is somewhere I would love to live if it existed in real life.

I felt empathy for Emma at the get go, making the career blunder she made, which led her to run away from her life as a marriage therapist. This empathetic pull is what got me interested in the story. However, right off the bat we see that Emma has a chip on her shoulder regarding what happened a decade ago with Gabriel. All I have to say is…Let it go Emma, let it go! And as time passes, Emma does.

Gabriel is portrayed as

I wanted to like this book. I truly did want to like this book.

Emma lies to nearly everyone she knows. Claire treats her husband as though he and his feelings are not important to her. But, his sperm is important to her. Deydie is an elderly woman who treats people rudely because she can. Her reasons for rudeness are rather obscure.

The women in this book are not exactly women I would admire.

Emma has come to this small Scottish town to hide from what she considers to be a huge career mistake. She

Meet Me In Scotland I received a print and digital copy from Netgalley and Berkley in exchange for an honest review. Meet Me in Scotland is fantastic! I loved it from beginning to end. I think a lot of women reading this book can relate to the feeling of being jaded by love and their past experiences that they wish they could leave behind them. That's what Emma is going through when she arrives in Scotland to escape her own disappointment in the concept in love. But ofcourse life is what happens ...more

Meet me in Scotland is the new story in the Kilts and Quilts series by Patience Griffin, and it is great to be back in Gandiegow. This is a small community in the highlands of Scotland and everyone knows everyone’s business. Emma Castle is going there to visit her best friend Claire Russo and also hideout after a video of her goes viral put a black mark on her career. She’s caught on tape denouncing marriage and true love and that can be dis

Emma Castle's famous parents were into counselling. They appeared on TV and wrote books. They spoke of relationships, sex and marriage with celebrity authority and were very successful. They expected their daughter Emma to be a part of that world. Emma was videotaped saying that she did not believe in marriage even though she was a marriage counselor. The video went viral. Emma decided to visit her best friend Claire in a small village in Scotland to get her life back together. Claire and Dom ha ...more

I have just closed the book on the last page of Meet Me in Scotland by Patience Griffin, the 2nd in the Kilts & Quilts series that takes place in the village of Gandiegow and my heart is full. As I suspected some of the characters have moved on to take up residence from the first book in the series to a front and center while others have taken more of a secondary role to introduce another set of new inhabitants of this magical place with its harsh weather and challenges of real life and how both ...more

I’ve not been a huge fan of contemporary romances before, but reading this one by Ms. Griffin has definitely made me change my mind about contemporaries. And because the setting was in Scotland…well, let’s just say I was curious and bought the book, and then I loved the story! Ms. Griffin has a no-nonsense, plain-spoken writing style that made this story so easy to read and understand and enjoy. Gabriel and Emma are an “opposites attract” couple in this romance, and it was fun to see how they ra ...more

Totally and completely love this story, was such a fun and delightful read and one that I no doubt will pick up again. The characters are likable and real with good hearts even if a bit lacking in judgement but that is what makes us all human right? I really like the setting that Patience has given for the story's backdrop, the coast in Scotland's Highland...what I wouldn't give to visit there sometime in my lifetime. I have a feeling that if there ever were a small town by the name of Gandiegow ...more

This book focused on well-defined characters, each having major decisions to be worked through....marriage, parenthood, identity, deceit, muteness, outsiders and love. What more could you ask! Griffin's ability to translate feelings draws the reader into the many frustrations that surface and yet I would have liked a little more time spent in developing the ending. I felt it was a bit rushed. I love this town! What a wonderful escape! The first thing I did when I finished the b

I received this book from the goodreads first reads program.
I loved this book! I will have to go back and read the first in the series now. Lucky for me it is readable as a stand alone. This was an emotional rollercoaster that I was loathe to put down or finish. The characters were relatable, loveable, and real. how I have never heard of Patience Griffin before this astounds me. Highly recommend.

Oh glory,I do love the Scots!

And this story shows just how well they can love. Gabriel and Emma, like most normal people ,have problems but love,real love,helps show them they were meant to be together. Patience has done it again, a grand love story and I've fallen in love with Scotland all over again! I am also very hungry for Dominic and Claire have me craving Italian food and scones!

This is the second in her Kilt and Quilt series, and I have to say that I enjoyed it as much or even a teensy bit better than the first in the series. The storyline caught me from the beginning and I loved the secondary characters as much as the main characters. I can't wait to read the third book!

I'm completely in love with this series Patience Griffin has created. I'm ready to move to Gandiegow! The author has crafted a story that totally immerses the reader, and you can't help but fall for all of the characters in her books.

It was great to be back in Gandiegow, meeting Deydie and all the other quilters again. This time it's Gandiegow's new doctor Gabriel MacGregor and psychologist Emma Castle's turn to wend their way together.
Looking forward to the third book in th ed Kilts and Quilts series coming July 2015.

I just can't put my finger on what I liked most in this book, but sure the story is articulate and credible , then I liked Emma very much. I find original also how "scottish" is all the book, from characters, environment,words of native language.

I have mixed feelings about "Meet Me in Scotland." While there were some delightful parts of the book that I truly enjoyed, overall, I felt that the author could not completely decide if she wanted to write a Christian Romance or a Contemporary Romance which made the reading of the book a bit odd at times for me. I adored the idyllic, fictional Scottish village of Gandiegow in which the story is set. I particularly liked the quilting ladies and the matriarch of the quilting group, Deydie. I can' ...more

Heartwarming, funny, and at times, deeply emotional, Meet Me In Scotland is a tremendous improvement on the 1st book in Ms. Griffin's Kilts and Quilts series. I'm growing more attached to this little town and it's colorful characters! Emma's character evolves dramatically through this book as she comes to terms with the person she's been in the past and the person she really wants to be. Her complicated childhood and her coping mechanisms have affected all areas of her life, including her friend ...more

The second in the Kilts and Quilts series by the author. Some of the characters recur, but you could easily read this as a stand alone. Its the story of Emma Castle who is a "failed" marriage counselor because she really doesn't believe in true love. She escapes from an embarrassing episode and her very controlling and disappointed parents to Gandiegow, Scotland. Her childhood friend, Claire lives there and she wants some support from her.

Unfortunately, Claire and her husband Dominic are having
