Review: It’s Getting Scot in Here by Suzanne Enoch
St. Martin’s Paperbacks, 2019
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Miss Amelia-Rose Baxter is getting rather tired of being a pawn in her parent’s never-ending quest to climb the hierarchy of London society. She just can’t manage to play the part of empty-headed socialite no matter how hard she tries…though, let’s be honest, she’s not trying all that hard. All Amelia-Rose wants is a man who can appreciate her quick wit and sharp mind.
The last place in the world Niall MacTaggart and his brothers want to be is London. And yet if each of them don’t find themselves a refined English girl to marry, their estranged mother will withdraw her financial support and they will lose their beloved Highland estate. Amelia-Rose was supposed to be his brother’s bride. But despite himself, Niall can’t help but long for smart, spirited Amelia-Rose to be his instead.
…”Aye. From the first time I set eyes on ye I knew ye’d be my downfall,”…
It’s Getting Scot in Here is just delightful. You’re never going to disappoint me with a band of brawny, brutish brothers from the Highlands who have to somehow navigate the stuffy ballrooms of London. Good stuff. The MacTaggerts are so much fun and the slow-but-steady way that Niall falls for Amelia-Rose is thoroughly charming and wonderful.
I wouldn’t have minded a little more heat from this book but Suzanne Enoch is a master, obviously, and she writes such glorious witty banter. And while it’s somewhat short on excitement and action, It’s Getting Scot in Here is bursting with colorful, full-bodied characters who share complicated, emotional relationships. I dug it. I actually cannot wait for Coll’s story because he’s much more hot-tempered and ridiculous than Niall. You just know it’s gonna be great.
Its Getting Scot in Here releases on February 26th and is available for pre-order now! Thank you Netgalley for the opportunity to read an advanced copy.
Happy Romance Reading!
