This is the first novel I’ve read by this author. Bryce Andrews is a Sales Director for an international liquor distribution company. She has been sent to Scotland to find a small-batch distillery that has a blend that will turn the world upon its axis and save her company from financial ruin.
Bryce is suffering from a broken heart and work overload; she hasn’t had a vacation in a few years. Scotland is her past generational home-land and it is there she finds some peace of mind and a familiar calming to her soul. Bryce works with a fellow employee, Reggie, who is the company’s southern belle and uses her looks and so-called charm to her advantage.
Enter Fiona McDougal, called back home to take care of her aging father. Fiona’s father had a distillery that had been in the family for many generations, but due to his failing health has fallen into disrepair.
The story was enjoyable and I found myself looking forward to the next chapter. It’s a light-hearted romance with a few twists and turns. The author paints a lovely picture of Scotland and the makings of Scotch Whisky. For the record, I’m 75% Irish and love Jameson’s but Magill’s writing has me interested in trying both the country and whisky.
The writing is descriptive, thoughtful and easy to read. I had a good time reading the budding and sweet romance between the two women as well as the romance of Scotland itself.
Thank you to Sapphire Publishing for the opportunity to review this lovely novel.
