Harper’s Highland Fling by Lizzie Lamb. #BlogTour

Harper’s Highland Fling

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.

My Thoughts

As soon as I read the description for Harper’s Highland Fling I could not wait to be a part of this blog tour. This is the second book I have read by Lizzie Lamb, and it certainly exceeded all of my expectations!.

Harper is an incredibly hard working, strong minded Headmistress who, after working tirelessly for many years decides it is time to embark on a much needed holiday. Harper has plans to travel to Tibet for her break, however that plan is quickly pushed aside when she learns that her niece Ariel has ran away to Scotland with the son of local mechanic Rocco.

Neither Harper or Rocco are particularly thrilled with this scenario, and it quickly becomes apparent that Harper has in fact met her match with this equally strong willed man. Realising there is little else to be done, the pair end up donning the leathers and climbing on to Rocco’s motorbike as they embark on their journey to bring the young lovebirds home.

It is far from smooth sailing as they hit the road, and they seem to know exactly what buttons to press to rile one another up. But the more time they spend with one another, the more those defensive barriers begin to lower, and they find themselves being drawn towards one another. Initially embarking on a journey together to save the younger generation from a whirlwind romance, they in fact find themselves creating their very own love story.

I absolutely adored this book from the start. The author has such an incredibly immersive writing style that really captivates you to the very end. The storyline itself was wonderful and well structured, with the perfect mixture of drama and romance, along with some serious heat!. The characters were well developed and possessed their own personalities, along with individual flaws which really added new depths to the story. I loved the romance that blossomed between Rocco and Harper as the story progressed, with both characters being equally likeable, it was impossible to not find yourself rooting for them from the start. This is a book I would happily recommend to others.
