Patience Griffin returns with a new Kilts N Quilts novel, Meet Me in Scotland


You can run from your problems, but you can’t hide from love in the Scottish seaside town of Gandiegow....

When a video of her calling happily ever after a foolish fantasy” goes viral, marriage therapist Emma Castle is out of a joband off to Scotland. The tiny town of Gandiegow is the perfect place to ride out the media storm and to catch up with her childhood friend Claire. But also in Gandiegow is the one man she hoped never to see again.

She’s successfully avoided Gabriel MacGregor since Claire and Dominic’s wedding, only to find he’s now the village doctorand just as tall, dark, and devilish as ever. Claire and Dominic’s blissful marriage, however, is not what it used to be. Soon Emma and Gabriel find themselves taking sides even as the sparks begin to fly between them. Can Emma help her friendsor regain her careeras she struggles with her own happily ever after?

Emma has never liked Gabriel and his womanizing ways. He left their friends' wedding with several bridesmaids! Her parents are world reknowned marriage and sex therapists and they have huge shoes they expect her to fill, but a scandal breaks out so Emma runs to Gandiegow to hide. Little did she know that Gabriel is now the town doctor and Claire sends him to get Emma at the airport. Which frustrates Emma to no end.
On top of that, Claire and Dominic are having major marriage issues because Claire wants a child desperately and Dom refuses to cooperate. Claire gathers the town to support her and shun Dom until he changes his mind, but that certainly doesn't help the financial reasons Dom has for not having a child right now. Gabriel has sided with Claire on the issue and eggheaded Emma sides with Dom. Then Dom and Claire get it into their heads that Emma and Gabriel belong together...
On top of that, the town decides that since Emma is a therapist, she should be helping the people of the town, as well as forcing her to learn to quilt the Gandiegow quilt.  Life is getting alot more complicated than Emma thought it would in the tiny, coastal town of Gandiegow.

I really liked Emma. She was smart and funny with just enough spunk. I'm glad she finally stood up to her parents, it would have driven me nuts if she didn't lol. I like Gabriel. He always seemed to know the right thing to say at the right time. It was great to see Deydie and Mattie and Caitie again! And all the quilters. I never had an interest in quilting before now. I don't see myself picking up the habit, but I love to read about it, lol!

I had the opportunity to meet Patience Griffin at my local library not to long ago. I have to say, not only is she a fantastic writer, she is an awesome person. She was very nice! I've met some nice authors and some not so nice authors, but Ms Griffin is my favorite by far! I can't wait for the next Kilts n Quilts novel.This has been my favorite series since Fools Gold by Susan Mallery!
