“Far as I’m aware–” Joe said, dropping his head briefly, the better to compose his features, “–far as I’m aware, Miss, we’ve no rabies in the Hebrides at the moment.”

Rose Mackie has inherited a house on a far-flung Scottish island from her curmudgeon of a father who wanted nothing whatsoever to do with her.

So she lands on Primrose Island with the intention of packing up the old beach house, selling it to the first person who’ll make an offer, and moving firmly on. But Joe Fraser, her late father’s neighbour, has some inconvenient news for her on that front.

Rose prepares for battle – only to find that the longer she spends on Primrose Island, and the more time she spends around Joe in particular, the more she begins to question everything she thought she knew…

My Review

This is part of a series of novellas. It was a very quick read, but I’d call it short and sweet. It had some fun characters in the village, as well as some real background issues that Rose had to deal with. I feel like the author handled it all very well for such a short story. It would have some definite insta-love vibes because of how quickly they do fall for each other, but it isn’t totally awkward like it can be sometimes. It works if you just realize the pace is moving as fast as it is and go along with it. Of course I had to pick this one up with my trip to Scotland this past summer and I enjoyed being back in the country!
