Happy April Fool’s day! Today is a day full of checking your chairs and the hands that you shake. Though it is a day for pranks I don’t have one for you today. My Day 9 review is another of Janice Horton’s works, Bagpipes and Bullshot. This is one of her full length novels. This was a fun read that I couldn’t put down. When I read this book I really wished I was the cowgirl finding her Scottish Laird. For more of my rave review be sure to keep reading after the book blurb. Happy April Fool’s Day! 🙂
A contemporary tale told with timeless Scottish romanticism and a knowing sense of humour. Bagpipes and Bullshot twists an everyday love story with a whole cast of village eccentrics into an entertaining play on rural life.
Oley first meets Innes when Innes plays the bagpipes at her mother’s wedding. After a few dates they have grown to really care for each other. But, Innes must go back to Scotland. Not ready to let Oley go he asks her to be his cattle manager and come to Scotland with him. Oley’s first instinct is to say no but after some thought about what she needs and wants she agrees. When Oley arrives to Scotland she wasn’t expecting what she saw. Innes is a Laird and lives in a large home. As Oley spends more time with Innes and his Scottish estate she begins to fall hard for both. But, there are things conspiring against them to thwart their happiness. It gets so rough that Oley almost loses everything. Can Innes and Oley fight against those who wish them harm or will their love crumble like the buildings on Innes’ estate?
I loved this book. Its both entertaining and addicting. Innes and Oley’s love story is so sweet and natural. What woman wouldn’t want a Scottish Laird to come sweep them off their feet. It was fun to see the opposites attract work in their favor. With Oley and her work and Innes and his they should want completely different people but in reality they are perfect for one another. The story takes you from Texas to Scotland and that in itself is a fantastic aspect to the story. I also love the element of intrigue that is within the story. The factors fighting Innes and Oley being together add a wonderful roller coaster ride. Overall, this was a fantastic read that I fell in love with. Anyone who likes a good love story with a few hurdles will adore this story.
