Highland Fling by Katie Fforde
Book DescriptionA fine romance? This is a wonderfully romantic novel from the No. 1 Sunday Times bestselling author of Recipe for Love, A French Affair and The Perfect Match. When 'Virtual Assistant' Jenny Porter's boyfriend accuses her of being impulsive, soft-hearted and unbusinesslike, dashing off to Scotland to sort out a failing mill for one of her clients may not be the best way of proving him wrong. And promising to help run a mobile burger bar before she's even found her feet doesn't help matters. When she finds herself determined to save the mill - whatever her client's wishes - it seems that Henry's accusations may have contained more than a grain of truth. So when Jenny's awkward encounters with the abrasive but disconcertingly attractive Ross Grant develop into something more complicated - just as Henry arrives in Scotland to reclaim her - it's time for Jenny to make some decisions. Should she do the sensible thing and follow Henry back to London? Or is her Highland adventure more than just a fling...?

UK Kirkus Review » Jenny Porter calls herself a 'Virtual Assistant', taking on a wide range of projects for her various employers. Her latest is to research an ailing Scottish woollen mill and decide whether it is salvageable or should be closed down. Before long she finds herself professionally and emotionally involved not only in the mill and its workers but in various other crises in the lives of the whole community. In no time at all she's running a Burger Bar and arranging elaborate dinner parties for the autocratic mill-owner. But it isn't until she meets her hitherto unseen client (in the most unpropitious of circumstances) that her troubles really begin. And then Henry, her ex, pops up again.... Katie Fforde's likeable heroines are always their own worst enemies: falling in love unsuitably, and usually violently; getting involved in impossible situations, but rescuing themselves and everyone else in the end. Jenny's determination to preserve Dalmain Mills 'and all who serve in them' never wavers, and her inherent kindness and friendliness are vital factors in her success. Although the story is frothy, froth isn't all. Katie Fforde always has an interesting, and topical, theme to her books that gives them added verisimilitude. Since she won a Romantic Novelists' Association Award for her first novel, Living Dangerously, she's built up an enthusiastic and faithful readership which is thoroughly well-deserved. (Kirkus UK)
US Kirkus Review » Another adorable romance from the author of, most recently, Second Thyme Around (2001). Jenny Porter squabbles with her bossy boyfriend one last time before heading to Scotland at the behest of her faraway employer, who wants her to investigate the finances and business practices of the Dalmain textile mill. Jenny intends to prove herself as a Virtual Assistant, no matter how much Henry sniffs, pointing out that the Internet (as if no one ever heard of it) makes it so easy to communicate. Off she goes, and she conveniently meets the friendliest member of the eccentric Dalmain family first, serving up bacon sandwiches at the Homely Haggis, a "merry little tartan van." (Warning: more cuteness ahead.) Meggie, its proprietor, a local girl, is pregnant by a Dalmain younger son, Iain, who scarcely counts as far as his dragon-lady mother, Lady Frances, is concerned. But Meggie loves her man, and she seems happy to provide hot tea and lukewarm gossip for one and all-unless, of course, Jenny might be interested in taking over the van . . . . Jenny is charmed by the offer and thinks it over as she gets to know Lady Frances, the jewel-encrusted matriarch of the clan who's dismayed to see that her unhappy daughter Felicity is enamored of Lachlan McGregor, a professional llama shearer. Oh, never mind Felicity: Lady Frances dotes on Philip, her favorite son, unaware that he's scheming to, ahem, fleece them all. When not sipping whiskey with this lot, Jenny's all business and fascinated by the "huge machines" that process the wool into cloth. Though the mill is inefficient and unprofitable, it does employ many locals. Gee whiz, she couldn't just "let all this . . . fall silent if she could possibly prevent it." Yes, our Jenny saves the mill from going under and even finds love with the very man who was planning to foreclose on it. Routine fare, dated plot. Britisher Fforde has done better. (Kirkus Reviews)
