Clementine’s swapped a London flat for a Scottish castle – but will she get her fairytale ending?
After discovering they were heirs to an enormous fortune, the lives of the five Hiverton sisters have never been the same.
While oldest sister Ariana settles in Norfolk, Clementine heads up to the remote Scottish Highlands to move into the castle that forms part of their estate. Not bad for a girl brought up scrabbling for money in a tiny house in East London…
However, Clem quickly finds out that Ruacoddy Castle is falling apart, the neighbors – especially grumpy young farmer, Rory - are suspicious of her and the eccentric housekeeper, Ottoline, is still in residence.
But as Clem finds herself growing closer to the village community, even growing closer to Rory and forming an alliance with Ottoline, she realizes that life in the Highlands might just be the change she needed.
She just needs to find out if Manolo Blahnik makes wellies…
High Heels in the Highlands is an absolute riot from the very start! I don't think I have laughed so hard with a book in my life. From sheep-involved car accidents to American tourists, to an art theft sting, High Heels in the Highlands has it all.
I didn't read the first book in this series, so I didn't know all of the back story about the inheritance and the titles, but the author fills you in quickly, but I wouldn't recommend this book as a stand-alone, as I feel like I have missed out on a lot of the intricacies of the back story, which I'm planning on rectifying by reading the first book.
The characters were such a blast and I have to say that I felt a kinship with Clementine and her sisters, especially with the tough upbringing. And Otto's feisty personality and love of cats just set the book for me.
