The small town of Highland, GA, once again plays host to romance in Trentham’s third series installment (after A Highlander in a Pickup). Whiskey heiress Claire Smythe has ditched her Scottish rock band and is hiding out in Highland while caring for an elderly widow, trying to decide her next move. She’s not looking for romance with a local man—and that includes hunky farm boy Holt Pierson. But Claire’s prickly personality is no match for the charming and persistent Holt, who offers the bike-riding Claire plenty of lifts in his pickup truck to get to know her better. While Claire is happy to join Holt in his truck and his bed, she refuses to grant him access to her heart, knowing she may soon return to Scotland. But as the holidays approach and Claire becomes more involved in the community, that decision becomes more difficult.
VERDICT Pair with A Highlander in a Pickup for a double dose of small-town charm and a continuation of the previous couple’s story alongside Holt and Claire’s new relationship.
