#BookReview Harper’s Highland Fling #Romance @lizzie_lamb #bookish


Anyone fancy reading a classic romance story with a lot of fun and adventure?

Look no further as I have the perfect book for you. Harper’s Highland Fling by Lizzie Lamb is one you will love. It’s got all the ingredients for a good read. I could honestly see this story turning into a film with it’s fun romantic set up and the entertaining road trip.

I hadn’t read Lizzie Lamb before prior to picking up this book. After reading this book I know I will be reading a lot more from Lizzie.

Here’s the blurb:

After a gruelling academic year head teacher Harper MacDonald is looking forward to a summer holiday trekking in Nepal. Her plans are scuppered when her wayward niece, Ariel, leaves a note announcing she’s running away with a boy called Pen. The only clue to their whereabouts is a scribbled footnote: I’ll Be in Scotland.

Cue a case of mistaken identity when Harper confronts the boy‘s father – Rocco Penhaligon – accusing him of cradle snatching her niece and ruining her bright future. At loggerheads, Harper and Rocco set off in hot pursuit of the teenagers, but the canny youngsters are always one step ahead. And, in a neat twist, it is the adults who end up in trouble, not the savvy teenagers.
Can Cupid convince Harper and Rocco that they have found their soul mates?
Fasten your seatbelt for the road trip of your lifetime. It’s going to be a bumpy ride.

Here’s my review:

There’s so much to enjoy in this book; a road trip from Cornwall to Scotland, a couple of runaway teenagers, a gorgeous male lead and a female lead who excels at being a headteacher but struggles to look after her teenage niece.

I loved the set up to the romance between Harper and Rocco. Harper’s a high flying head teacher who is looking after her niece, Ariel, whilst her sister is in LA. Rocco is the single father of Penn, the teenage boy who ends up running away with Ariel. Harper calls upon Rocco to help track down the teenagers. My hat goes off to Lizzie Lamb as I thought this was fab.

This story is very entertaining and I thought Rocco and Harper were great characters who had lots of chemistry. This book is one of those where you tell yourself you are only going to read a chapter and then three hours later you are still reading.

A good classic romance read with loads of fun twists and turns.
