Isabel Buchanan is fiery, funny, and never at a loss for words. But she is struck speechless when her mother returns from a trip to Scotland with a six-foot-tall, very handsome souvenir. Izzy’s mother is so infatuated by the fellow that Izzy has to plan their annual Highland Games all by herself. Well, not completely by herself. The Highlander’s strapping young nephew has come looking for his uncle…
Alasdair Blackmoor has never seen a place as friendly as this small Georgia town—or a girl as brilliant and beguiling as Izzy. Instead of saving his uncle, who seems to be having a lovely time, Alasdair decides he’d rather help Izzy with the Highland Games. Show her how to dance like a Highlander. Drink like a Highlander. And maybe, just maybe, fall in love with a Highlander. But when the games are over, where do they go from here?

Laura Trentham is one of my favorite authors, she never fails to get me gripped into a story, that is pretty much going to emotionally rip me apart. But with A Highlander Walks into a Bar, she took it in another direction of a fun, sweet romance, which I completely enjoyed
Isabel Buchanan is a red-headed accountant with a fiery personality and you cannot help but love her passion, not only for her Mom but also for the Highland Games her father set up in the little southern town, that her mother and Isabel had run since he passed away. You also have to imagine her shock when her Mom walks in with a new man in tow, closely followed by his handsome nephew Alasdair Blackmoor determined on protecting his uncle, and as you can imagine, the fun and games begin, and not just in their small town highland games!
A Highlander Walks into a Bar is such a refreshing story, funny, cute and romantic, one that branches out into later in life romance, and doesn't just stick to young love, and for that and many other reasons it this book warms my heart!
I give A Highlander Walks into a Bar 5 stars
