A stunning Scottish castle, a tall dark stranger, and a vow to stay single happily ever after… what could go wrong?
Nora Brown is totally happy single. The men in her life have all been selfish, cheating liars and being alone is far easier than risking a broken heart again – for her and for her daughter. She’s only going to Romance Reboot – a posh ‘singles’ bootcamp’ at a castle in the Scottish Highlands – to keep her sister quiet.
But surrounded by tumbling waterfalls and sweet birdsong, Nora can’t deny she’s starting to relax. Even better, she finds another guest with no intention of finding love. Will Thomson has dark tousled hair, a sly grin, and a shocking sense of humour. Everybody else hears their laughter and thinks they’re falling for one another, but Nora knows she’s safe – he’s just here on a research trip.
Determined to ignore the spark between them, Nora agrees to be Will’s cover, fending off other suitors with private sniggers over wine and quite convincing public displays of affection. Just when she starts to question if she might be missing something important, she starts to suspect Will might be hiding something from her.
Will is just another cheater-in-the-making like all the others, isn’t he? Nora will go home to her daughter happy and single, just like she always intended. Even if she could find out the truth about him, she isn’t interested… is she?
Thank you to Bookouture for letting me take part in this tour and for my copy of this book via Netgalley. I read The List by Joanne many years ago and loved it so I was very excited to read another book by Joanna.
Nora is a likeable character. She has low self-esteem and you easily root for her to be happy and loved. Will Thomson, you little devil. He is funny and oh so loveable. He has a way with words and is hiding a rockin’ bod under those clothes.
This book is set in Scotland. At the moment this is my favourite place. I am getting married in Scotland in October and I can’t wait. The location of the bootcamp sounds absolutely beautiful. I’d happily move into one of the cabins tomorrow. I am a sucker for a hot tub so I think I would be very happy there.
I really liked Faith, Nora’s sister and would love to hear her story.
If you are looking for a light hearted fun read then this one is perfect for this heatwave we’ve got going on.
