I just finished reading Waiting for the Laird, written by Willa Blair. This author has done it again! I got so captivated as soon as I started turning the pages—from the first page until the very end. A real page turner! This story was fantastic! This author is a high quality writer who knows how to pull you into her story with words flowing. I could feel Ms. Blair's interest in the history and tales of Scotland. When you start this novel, you won't be able to stop.
This Scottish tale tells the story of young widow, Lara, and her two nine years old twins, Amy and Alexander, who will play an important part in this story, and of course, Ian, the handsome architect. Their story is mainly set in a Scottish Cairn Dubh Manor that holds secrets, Scottish artifacts, and even maybe a ghost! Lara hired Ian to help her to restore the older parts of the manor, but as they spend more time together, their relationship will grow. Is Ian truly the man he appears to be? Is he hiding a secret? Will Lara find out Cairn Dubh's history? Let's say that while renovating the old ruins, they discover the unexpected, that might change Lara, Ian, and the twin's lives forever! I won't tell you the rest to keep the mystery going. Beautiful sweet chemistry between Lara and Ian. It's so refreshing to follow their relationship and watch it grow with kisses here and there, then a journey of teasing and seducing begins with a beautiful and unexpected ending!
I have to say that Ms. Blair is a talented storyteller of Scottish tales. I had so much fun reading Waiting for the Laird, knowing now that it really reflects Lara and Ian's sweet and romantic story. I'm never disappointed with the author's Scottish adventures! I truly enjoyed every minute of it!
Ian Paterson wants Lara but if she finds out who he really is he is afraid that will be the end of them before anything can get started. When they uncover proof of who Ian really is he knows he has to come clean with Lara. With the help of a very interesting ghost, he has to prove to Lara that she and the twins are more important then his ancestry.
This is a heartwarming, fun story about family, heritage, starting over and one wonderful ghost! Absolutely enjoyed this Scottish tale! Willa Blair has such a gift in bringing these stories to life. I couldn’t wait to find out what the secrets were going to turn out to be. I could just picture the castle, countryside and of course Fergus, the ghost! Great read!
During the reconstruction, Ian tells Lara the measurements of the rooms do not add up. Eventually, they find a walled-off section in the manor. Once they get through the wall, there are century old artifacts and memorabilia, including a huge portrait of a deer hound. The brass nameplate indicates the deer hound is called Fergus. Lara’s precocious twins have apparently already met Fergus, the ghost and made a friend of him. Fergus and the twins have a prominent place in the story and, Fergus in the history of the manor. Their antics are typical childhood entertainment.
Once Ian gets to know Lara and falls for her, he is wary of telling her of his connection to the manor and of his title. Although a bit predictable, this is still a charming story. When I first saw the cover on Net Galley, I did not care for it. Having now read the story, the cover has more meaning and is fitting to the story. Thank you Net Galley for sharing this story in exchange for an honest review.
