Can’t Wait Wednesday #A Highlander in a Pickup: Highland, Georgia #2 by Laura Trentham

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. If you’re continuing with WOW, feel free to link those up as well! Find out more here.

From the book blurb:

The second book in a brand new series from Laura Trentham, full of love, laughs…and highlanders!

Iain Connors is the poster boy for the strong and silent type. Growing up a loner at Cairndow Castle in Scotland with only the cliffs and moors for company, it’s understood Iain will assume the mantle of Cairndow groundskeeper when his father is ready to relinquish it. But his stint in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces has opened up the world, and now he’s not so sure he wants to settle down. When Alasdair Blackmoor, the next earl of Cairndow, asks him to travel to the States, namely Highland, Georgia, to take charge of the Highland Games, he jumps at the chance. After all, he’s led men into battle, how hard can planning a party be?

Anna Maitland is ready to step up for her best friend Isabel Blackmoor. Unable to return to Highland for the annual Highland Games, she’s asked Anna to make sure the Games run smoothly. Feeling too settled into her routine as a dance instructor to the children of Highland, Anna relishes the challenge of planning the Games. After all, who better than Anna to take charge considering she has been a big part of the Games for years?

The challenge Anna doesn’t anticipate is the grumpy bear of a man who turns up claiming he’s the one in charge. She doesn’t need Iain Connors’s help—or the distraction he poses. Never has she met a more mule-headed, infuriating, exasperating man in her life. Why then does she find herself dreaming about him in a kilt and whispering sweet-nothings in her ear in his rumbly, sexy brogue?

I really enjoyed the first book in the series A Highlander Walks into a Bar that explored the adventures of two Scottish-American couples and various issues related to home, family and tradition. I can’t wait to find out what happened to fiesty red-head Isabel Buchanan and her mom Rosie as well as Isabel’s best friend’s Anna.

  • Have you read A Highlander walks in a bar? If yes, did you like it? Would you like to return to the little town that was the setting of the novel?

  1. OMGosh, when I saw this title I knew this book was for me. So many cultural tropes that I love reading about. The moody Highlander, the tough as nails, yet laid back country guy in a pickup… I NEED to read this book ❤ The whole hater to lovers thing going with planning the Games sounds awesome too. Can't wait to read your thoughts on this one!! Jen

  2. My little one used to fall asleep to the sounds of Auld Lang Syne, nothing else😁
    Seriously, I loved the first book, especially the whole issue of Rosie (Mom) starting to date after being a widow for many years and her daughter behaving in an over-protective way. A situation I can relate to…

  3. I read the When a Highlander Walks into a Bar, as an ARC a while back and thoroughly enjoyed it 🙂 It was one of my “break” books I do between my serious non-fiction I normally read, and it was just perfect! I’m tempted to read more of that series next time I’m ready for some fun reading.
