From the author of The Trouble With Scotland—a charming new romance set in the beautiful Scottish Highlands.
Christmas in the sleepy Scottish fishing village of Gandiegow this year is a time for quilting, patching up broken hearts, and rekindling an old flame...
After pulling herself out of a three-year fog of grief over the loss of her husband, Joe, Rachel is bringing their five-year-old daughter to see his hometown of Gandiegow and visit with his grandfather. But Rachel wasn’t planning on running into Joe’s cousin, the man who made her have second thoughts at the altar...
Brodie has come home to help his grandfather’s fishing business, but he’d prefer not to see Rachel. Although she did break his heart six years ago, the grip she has on him hasn’t faltered. If they can stop butting heads long enough and learn to overcome the past, they may find new love in the new year...

Ms. Griffin is a master in character development. She takes the time to draw you into this small seaside village in Scotland with characters who have flaws and dreams of second chances. And if the characters have problems they cant seem to solve themselves, no worries, the helpful townsfolk will steer tgem in the right direction! I love the interaction of the community and the continued involvement of all the previous characters in each new addition to this series. The only drawback is i have to wait for the next book to find out how everyone is doing in Gandiegow!!!
Love this series...it's like reuniting with old friends while deepening the storyline. Can't wait for the next!
I have enjoyed reading these books so much,that I'm even learning to quilt .
This review was written by Marie for a guest review post on Ever After Book Reviews blog: 4.5 Stars The Kilts and Quilts series has been one that I feel is an underrated collection of stories that are well written, sweet and heart-warming. I picked up the first one when it was first released, and I instantly fell in love with Ms. Griffin’s writing style, her characters, and her love of Scotland. It Happened in Scotland is the sixth book of this charming series, and while it isn’t the best of the bunch, it certainly doesn’t disappoint. It’s a wonderful story about second chances that warms your heart and might even squeeze out a few tears, especially if you become emotionally invested in to Rachel and Brodie as they rekindle their old, and still very much alive, romance. Ms. Griffin does a fantastic job at developing her characters as she goes, and the evolution of Rachel throughout the course of the story adds to the grandiose romanticism of the story. Add in the sometimes-quirky supporting cast of characters, and you have quite the well-rounded, deeply layered story, complete with a wonderful backdrop in the Scottish Highlands. If you haven’t picked up this series yet, I highly recommend that you do. And while reading the whole series is beneficial, it isn’t one-hundred percent necessary. So, do yourself a favor, and give It Happened in Scotland a try. I guarantee you’ll be hooked. ***I voluntarily read and reviewed a paperback copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

I can't wait for another book in this series to come out. I have loved all of them. Feels like I'm part of the town and know everyone.
Patience has done it again and has given another great book in a feel good series. I fell in love with little Hannah from the first time she stepped onto the page. It was funny to watch how she had the adults wrapped around her little finger. As they say out of the mouth of babes. I felt so bad for Rachel as she deserved so much more than what Joe gave her before he passed. He was a real piece of work. Then you had Brodie who wanted nothing more to be happy but had too much guilt in his heart. All for things he should not have felt guilty for. There were also side stories of some of our favorite residents of Gandiegow. It is so much fun visiting this town and seeing what is happening with everyone. The town of Gandigow that the author has created just makes you want to pack up and move to Scotland asap. There was just a hint of a mystery in this book part of which was solved and part of which was not. I have read this entire series in the last six months or so and will feel lonely without them to keep me company. I can't wait to read the next book in this series.
