A feel good Christmas read. A last minute work panic brings two friends together in a supposedly haunted house. Memories for both of them bring doubts and insecurities. An excellent read with a coffee and a mince pie!
Juliette and Andrew get roped into working over Christmas for their haunted house show because a previously filmed episode won't be able to be aired. They end up going to Andrew's family home, Garnock Hall, which is rumored to be haunted, but Andrew doesn't believe it is. During their time filming, and trying to make an acceptable Christmas dinner for the two of them Andrew is forced to deal with past demons regarding the home and his brother's death. Juliette, being newly single, does a great job of adjusting to her changed Christmas plans and digs deep into the house and family history. It was a very interesting story with some mildly creepy parts. I loved how both Andrew and Juliette came to terms with their feelings for one another while at the same time being concerned for the other's feelings. I loved the descriptions of Garnock Hall and I could just imagine the huge home hosting weddings and parties.
Juliette was planning to spend a quite Christmas home alone when an emergancy came up at work and in just minutes her holiday plan went from home alone, to going on a film shoot, with just her and a handsome camera man she hardly knew, to Scotland to do a film in a haunted house. And the best little extra her boss handing her a company credit card for "all expences including clothes",she only had one hour to shop and get to the train station. Awe perfect end to her year, she grabbed the card and ran. Heart warming, sweet little read.
Though the majority is set in a poorly heated, old Scottish castle, this story warmed me to my toes. Loved the setup. When an episode of their Haunted Ever After TV show is scrapped, Andrew invites Juliette to travel with him to his family home over the holidays to film an impromptu, replacement episode based on the rumored 'hauntings' there. But instead of finding ghosts, Juliette helps Andrew to put the sadness of the past behind him, and face the future with love and life. I smiled throughout, but there were tender moments that brought a tear to my eye. I loved spending Christmas in Scotland with Juliette and Andrew, and look forward to reading more from this author!
The last thing Juliette had planned for the Christmas holidays is to be working alongside Andrew at Garnock Hall in Scotland. They are filming for the show, Haunted Ever After. Andrew grew up in Garnock Hall with many sad memories. Juliette has decided to bring the magic of Christmas back into the hall, to make it a happy place not sad. This book will surely put the magic back into the Christmas season with all the decorations and food. Is this a secret santa town?
So far this series has been great. I have loved the descriptions of where they have taken place. This story was no different. Made me want to visit. Loved the sweet romance story and the Christmas traditions they tried to make or have.
I'm ready to head to Scotland with hopes of finding my own laird for the holidays. Scarlet Wilson gives readers a fun holiday romance with Christmas with the Laird. She delivers a wonderful setting with some history and enough mystery about the past and great characters and dialogue. I'm looking forward to reading more from Scarlet Wilson.
