Sealed with a Kiss by Rachael Lucas
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Kate answers an advert to go and live on a Scottish island as a Girl Friday to the laird of a castle. A cottage comes with the job. Kate is suffering from the break-up of a five year relationship. The Isle of Auchenmor seems perfect especially since the residents are all so friendly. This is pretty predictable but is great escapist stuff, light, big hearted, sweetly romantic with enough conflict and disruption in the budding romance to make it a page turner.

If you like Rachael Lucas you might also like to read books by Trisha Ashley, Katie Fforde and Carole Matthews.

Synopsis

Sealed with a Kiss by Rachael Lucas

* The Top Ten Kindle bestseller, now with brand NEW material! * Kate is dumped on her best friend's wedding day by the world's most boring boyfriend, Ian. She's mostly cross because he got in first - until she remembers she's now homeless as well as jobless. Rather than move back home to her ultra-bossy mother, Kate takes a job on the remote Scottish island of Auchenmor as an all-round Girl Friday. Her first day is pretty much a disaster: she falls over, smack bang at the feet of her grouchy new boss, Roddy, Laird of the Island. Unimpressed with her townie ways, he makes it clear she's got a lot to prove. Island life has no room for secrets, but prickly Roddy's keeping something to himself. When his demanding ex girlfriend appears back on the island, Kate's budding friendship with her new boss comes to an abrupt end. What is Fiona planning - and can she be stopped before it's too late? This funny, big-hearted novel is the perfect read for fans of Carole Matthews, Trisha Ashley and Katie Fforde.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Their sending me my first book to review 18 months ago re-awakened my fondness for reading, since then I have purchased some real gems.
