Lady Thorold has just started to live again after a horrid marriage and never wishes to be strapped down by a man’s dictates. The widow, Lady Georgette Thorold decide to restart her life by going to visit her male cousin in Scotland. She awakes confused and in a bed with a naked bearded Scotsman and there is a wedding ring on her finger. Unsure how she got herself in such a state, she does what any reasonable Lady would do and hits the naked hunk in the head with a chamber pot knocking him out cold and runs away. 

James McKenzie is rudely awakened by his brother Lord William. He is missing his wallet, has a cut on his head and has little recollection of the previous night. Believing he was robbed of his purse and most likely his prized horse by the most intriguing woman, he is hot in pursuit to track her down.

It’s a story about two people unsure of the night’s events trying to piece together the clues they uncover and make sense of the circumstances they find themselves in... This was a slow building and charming story that reminded me of a historical fiction version of the “Hangover” movie. 

Both characters have demons from their past to face before they can trust each other. A deviant plot is afoot and it could definitely threaten their ever finding happiness. 

This was an intriguing romance, I found it moderately slow going but in the end I found myself completely engaged in the outcome. I am very much looking forward for more from Jennifer McQuiston, an extremely exciting new author in a genre I adore.

This ARC copy of What Happens in Scotland was given to me by Avon in exchange for a honest review. Publish Date February 26, 2013.

A very fun book to read! It will remind you of the Hangover and you'll find yourself laughing while reading the book just like you might have with the movie.

    Painful

    The author spent way too much time having the main characters search each ither out. I think she inteded their escapades to be funny, but instead they were painfully flat uptakes on the "Hanover" movies. Dont waste ur time on this one.

    Between the many plot spoilers that totally ruined the book for future readers, the kids playing around, and the porno texts here, its hard to get a real review. Please bn. Cant you put a stop to these plot spoilers ruining the books for other readers and kids using the book review site for chat rooms and sexting games?
