What kept me from reading this story until I was down to my last book: the cover. PLEASE CHANGE THE COVER
What the writing did that kept it from being a better read: details of the inconsequential (picked up remote from the table)... and not enough detail of the area. I would have liked a better feel of the pub!
I really never felt Sarah had an identity. Maybe that was the plan, but it kept me disconnected as a reader from the main character.
What a awesome book I can't say enough about what a great love story it is, I fell in love with this book after just the first chapter. I don't want to give away to much but I will give a little insight of this story..Dumped at the alter by your groom is not exactly something you want, but is it something that you are thankful for? Sarah being that bride decides that she didn't want pity she wanted to just get away think about her life and what SHE wanted. Always doing the right thing by her family she leaves without telling anyone and goes on her honeymoon by herself to find herself. As the book goes on she finds herself finding what is best for her and finding happiness despite what her family wants for her. The author did a great job building the characters and making their story come to life, loved the dynamic of the story and the friendships that are built.. A must read I didn't want to put it down and was sad that it ended.... Such a heartwarming book....
This book follows Sarah who got stood up at the altar and so does the only thing she can think of - she escapes to her honeymoon on her own. While here, she discovers herself and figures out what it is she wants from life.
I enjoyed getting to know Sarah and Brett. They are not terribly complicated. They're just regular people who've had bad experiences and are trying to make the most of it. For the most part, one could say that they were just going through the motions until their chance meeting jump-started their lives. I loved that their romance was sweet and developed naturally. There wasn't too much angst between them, which was a relief. They did have their moments of miscommunications and the way it was resolved was pretty sweet and unique.
Of course, as with any romance novel, there were a host of secondary characters who provided just the right amount of conflict as well as comic relief. I truly LOVED The Ship's Inn Tavern. If I were into bars/pubs, this is the kind of place I would frequent as it has a friendly, homey atmosphere and the patrons feel like family.
Although I enjoyed reading about the romance between Sarah and Brett, as well as getting lost in the wonder and beauty that is Scotland, for some reason, I had a hard time getting into the book. It took me several tries until I finally found my groove and got lost in the story.
All in all, for fans of a romance that's on the sweet side without explicit sex scenes, this is a sure bet.
This was the case with Sarah Collier because she knows all too well what it was like to lead a life that has always been perfectly scripted and in some respects my heart broke for her but I was internally whooping when her penny dropped on the one day that everyone was supposed to be singing from the same hymn page – literally!
Because far from following the script, Sarah took her life under her control and walked away! Leaving everything she as ever know behind she sets off on what was meant to be her honeymoon – into the unknown she is finally doing what she wants and I was delighted that she had finally out herself first.
The author did an amazing job in her portrayal of Sarah, I liked her and was almost immediately invested in the journey she was taking. I wanted her to have everything that she needed and deserved and to finally spread her wings and fly – I just didn’t expect that Berwick in southern Scotland would be the place that she would finally find what she needed, then again I doubt she did either.
Bretton is the local pub landlord and the appearance of this pretty stranger in the town certainly draws his attention but is his interest only titillation and amusement or is there something else with him.
I found Bretton a curious character, he has a past that seemed to have a hold on him that was stopping him from taking the steps forward that I was begging him to take – honestly I was internally pleading with him to cut not only himself but Sarah some slack and live for the moment, but then again when you have liked the life that Sarah had – could she finally accept that what happened next for her was her call to make – would she finally tell her family where to get off their high horse and be the woman that she wanted and the woman that Bretton needed, could she make him see that just because he had been hurt before, he could trust her to never hurt him.
I was entranced by the characters and their story, by what they had both been through, by the pain that they both carried with them and by the fact that they were doing what they could to start afresh but I adored the pure romance of their situation – may no bones about it – this is an out and out romance and you will be well placed to make yourself comfortable and allow the author to transport you into the wilds of a the Scottish countryside.
This was a beautifully written, superbly evocative and heart-warmingly romantic read – thoroughly recommended.
