I also really loved how it was Outlander inspired, without being Outlander fanfiction! I feel like that's hard to do: it's set in Scotland, it has a Scot as a swoon-worthy male lead, and it's on a TV production, but Alexander takes it in a different direction. It feels like one of those stories where you see a minor character in the original story, find them fascinating, and follow them on their "What If" path. Like what Alexander did with her novels This Love and Not About Love, actually. This Love followed Ella and Lou, and introduced us to Ally and Boyd, and we followed their journey in Not About Love.
Lost in Scotland also renewed my desire to get a passport and go explore Scotland!
The main characters were just perfect. I related to Sam and her character traits. She is a woman scorned and after being in a relationship for 7 years, she has to find out who she is again. What better way to do that then flying to Scotland from California to start a new? Sam was ready for a fresh start and a new journey. Little did she know that she would come across a handsome Scotsman on her adventure to self discovery.
Hugh MacLeod was an unknown actor on a new project. He takes his job seriously and knows he must prove himself worthy of the role that he has been given. In the process he meets an American that not only inspires him but also knocks him off his feet. When Hugh realizes that he has found "the one" there will of course be challenges and obstacles to overcome.
Y'all, this story was not what I expected. I may have waited too long to dive into this book. I could not put it down. From the descriptions to the plot of the characters lives, it was so addicting. I may be a bit of a fan of another book series based in Scotland and I absolutely loved the pop culture references to said series. It made me smile so much. I dream of going to Scotland one day and Hilaria has only made that dream more vivid.
This is a lovely story about love lost and love gained and the challenges it takes to get there. They say that everything happens for a reason and everything worth having is worth the fight it takes to get there.
Trust me and read this book. Luckily there is a second one and I cannae wait to read it! I am verra excited to see the story continue. (see what I did there? ;) ) Thank you Hilaria for writing a book with all the feels and showing us that love is found even in the craziest of circumstances.

Writing style: Dual POVs
Cover and chapter design: I like the cool couple image hidden in the Scotland hills. And the sky-blue chapter titles add a nice bit of color inside the novel.
Favorite Sam Quote:
‘I loved him, and he needed to know how much. He was everything.’
Favorite Hugh Quote:
‘The air of mystery about her was one of the things that attracted me the most, and her soft voice was another, but the way her eyes seemed to look right through me was what was most unsettling.
On top of that, when she smiled at me, I felt powerless. I didn’t have a chance against her. I had to give in. I wanted to fall for her, follow her anywhere.’
Did this one live up to its synopsis well? Yes, 100% yes!
Although the celebrity romance trope isn’t a big draw for me normally, I’m a huge fan of author Hilaria Alexander. I knew I wouldn’t be disappointed by my escape into Sam and Hugh’s love story. I loved all the references to the Outlander television show and the comparisons between real life lead actor Sam Heughan and fictional lead actor Hugh MacLeod. The dilemma Hugh has once he falls for Hollywood make-up artist Samhain (aka Sam) Farouk and how it no doubt paralleled what the Outlander lead actors are currently experiencing was eye-opening and interesting. I’m a total shipper, and I have no shame in admitting I want Outlander lead actors Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe to be a real life off screen couple, ha!
Fortunately, the evolution and resolution of fictional Hugh and Sam’s professional and romantic relationship seemed very realistic and had me smiling in delight. I also loved how the novel took place over a year plus. There was also lots of good humor, steam, pathos and conflict that never seemed absurd or over the top. I hope this one gets an audiobook eventually so I can indulge in an easy future re-read. I can imagine narrators Zachary Morgan and Edita Brychta performing this one perfectly – hint, hint. 😉
Sam and Hugh's chemistry is instant but I love the way that it isn't rushed, their story isn't one of meeting and falling in love the next day. They are friends first and I liked that about the story. If you are dreaming about far off places then Lost in Scotland is your next read! 5 out 5 roses!
