"SWEPT OFF HER FEET is a delight! If you're looking for a modern day fairy tale with the perfect edge of acerbic Brit wit, you'll be swept off your feet by Hester Browne!" Teresa Medeiros, New York Times bestselling author of GOODNIGHT TWEETHEART
"A charming example of British chick lit, with a lovable, self-conscious, hopelessly romantic heroine and a dark and dashing leading man, a Scottish castle full of history and romance, and as much appeal and complexity as a Scottish reel." -- Library Journal
“Hester Browne’s latest is a fun read that most assuredly hits the chick-lit/contemporary romance spot. Satisfying in every aspect.” -- Bookbitch.com
“Browne's clever modern-day Cinderella story balances a sharp eye for the ridiculous with a genuine affection for the foibles of tradition to tell the delightful story of a woman finding passion--and freedom--on the dance floor.” -- Publisher's Weekly

So despite not having been impressed with the last two of Ms. Browne's books, I grabbed this one anyways.
And I am SO glad I did; Swept Off Her Feet was a thoroughly delightful read! I gobbled it right up! I was pleasantly surprised to find a sweet, contemporary romantic tale that wasn't riddled with the unnecessary profanity or smut that is usually found in modern romances. Hooray on that note alone!!
I found Evie to be a very relatable, and enjoyable heroine. She works in antiques, having an intense passion and zeal for all things with a history... which usually means the items that she is drawn to no one would pay for... old photos and picture frames, natty old teddy bears, and a mounted stag's head. Needless to say, her boss isn't that thrilled with her purchases and is threatening to give her the boot. In swoops her sister, Alice, with a timely and exciting proposition, for Evie to travel to Kettlesheer in Scotland and find some treasure that could be sold to help finance the castle's expenses. Talk about a dream come true for Evie.
My only complaint is that the plot is pretty thin- there really isn't that much suspense or mystery, the story is fairly predictable.
BUT, it doesn't detract at all from your enjoyment of the story. Which is a feat in of itself... It was a light and fluffy read to be sure but it was so achingly sweet and charming that you can't help but read it through with a smile on your face. And I enjoyed it so much that I will be re-reading it in the not so distant future, which is the mark of a keeper for me!
Enjoy this winner of a story and be swept away with Evie to the magic of Scotland and its, erm, other charms... wink wink :-)
