it was amazing

Accept the things to which fate binds you, and love the people with whom fate brings you together, but do so with all your heart. – Marcus Aurelius

WHAT HAPPENS IN SCOTLAND opens with Lady Georgette Thorold waking up, naked in the same room with a man she does not know. She escapes his amorous attentions only to realize she may be married to him. Georgette finds a few allies … and enemies … as she seeks to identify her mystery husband and secure an annulment. This plot suggests a “What Happens in Vegas” inspiration … but WHAT HAPPENS IN SCOTLAND is so much more.

McQuiston gives readers the opportunity to dig deeper into the heroine, Georgette, and hero, James, as they search for the other. Both carry emotional baggage from family betrayals that make each wary of following through with the impromptu marriage. Yet they are intrigued by their unknown spouse, picking up clues to their character along the way. Once they finally meet, they have the chance to break away … or embrace that which fate offered.

McQuiston created a heartfelt story of fated lovers who are given a second chance at happiness in an unexpected way. McQuiston adds a unique twist to the “Vegas” inspiration that delivered a satisfying ending. I was charmed by McQuiston’s debut and look forward to more books from her.

Recommended read for fans of lighthearted romance set in early Victorian England.
