The Highland Fling | Meghan Quinn
post image

So far The Highland Fling is another fun and breezy read and has some humorous moments. I can't seem to stop lately. I have 4 books I'm currently in the middle of reading. It's an enjoyable problem. I can't seem to stop myself from starting another before finishing more than one of them. Ebooks... audiobooks... I'm supposed to be reading a paperback also but I keep putting it off. Gotta have a book for all possibly reading opportunities. 🤷🏻‍♀️

I've never watched the show and I put off reading this for years because I am not a fan of romance heavy stories.

I found myself really enjoying the historical aspects of this story. The descriptions of the setting were some of my favorite parts. I liked a lot of the characters and overall the writing was well-done. However, the dynamics between Jamie and Claire felt too "Insta-love" and controlling for me.

mdm139 The relationship improves. Jamie is definitely a product of his time in this one. 2d
TheSpineView Fabulous! 2d
Tamra I haven‘t watched or read it for the same reason. However, I know I‘d enjoy the beautiful setting as you note. 2d

On this tvtime app I have, someone actually commented that reading the outlander books were "cheating" lmao I find this very amusing. I feel like watching the show is cheating??

Mina‘s debut has all the elements that make her work compelling: female protagonists, Glasgow setting, tough issues examined sensitively but honestly, and the odd splash of violence.

Great read with a wonderful sense of place, the Highlands, and the people who live there. Also possessed of feeling of a creeping doom as the reality of child sexual abuse is slowly revealed, although not in any gruesome detail. Set in the 1950‘s, many of the primary characters work on a small town newspaper. Good twisty plot that speculates several candidates before the real monster is revealed. A good read. I recommend this author.

Oh how I enjoyed this one. From prologue to ending. The thing that makes this such a wonderful read are the characters! The writing is sweet and the author brought Scotland to life. I‘ve actually visited Scotland several times when I lived in England and this made me homesick for the brogue and the food! #travelthroughbooks #scotland #mayreading

April feels like it was a really good reading month even though I apparently only finished three books. But they were all great! I muddled up the bookspin numbers & haven't started my #doublespin yet, but I will get to it. I didn't fill in my blank spaces for birthday present books because one of them was Little Wing which was already on my list because I wanted an excuse to buy it, and I haven't started my other gift book yet.
