Review ~ To Scotland With Love (Kilts and Quilts #1) by Patience Griffin

Welcome to the charming Scottish seaside town of Gandiegow—where two people have returned home for different reasons, but to find the same thing.…

Caitriona Macleod gave up her career as an investigative reporter for the role of perfect wife. But after her husband is found dead in his mistress’s bed, a devastated Cait leaves Chicago for the birthplace she hasn’t seen since she was a child. She’s hoping to heal and to reconnect with her gran. The last thing she expects to find in Gandiegow is the Sexiest Man Alive! She just may have stumbled on the ticket to reigniting her career—if her heart doesn’t get in the way.

Graham Buchanan is a movie star with many secrets. A Gandiegow native, he frequently hides out in his hometown between films. He also has a son he’ll do anything to protect. But Cait Macleod is too damn appealing—even if she is a journalist.

Quilting with her gran and the other women of the village brings Cait a peace she hasn’t known in years. But if she turns in the story about Graham, Gandiegow will never forgive her for betraying one of its own. Should she suffer the consequences to resurrect her career? Or listen to her battered and bruised heart and give love another chance?
 
This is not the typical kind of book that I read but it was pretty good. It is definitely more along the lines of an old school romance novel. Cait’s cheating husband just died while in bed with his mistress. So she flees back to her childhood home of Gandiegow in Scotland. What she doesn’t expect is to run into Graham Buchanan, current AWOL movie star. In order to revive her journalism career Cait decides to write an exposé for People magazine on Graham’s whereabouts every time he goes into hiding.

Cait spends a lot of time fighting her attraction to Graham because of her guilt in writing the story and her plans to not get close to anyone in the town. Of course she fails miserably on both counts and comes to realize that even though she left at a young age, Gandiegow will always be her home. She also ends up learning a lot about herself and finds herself again. Cait becomes a happier person and didn’t even realize that there were things missing in her life until she came back to Scotland.
