Scotsman in the Stacks
Alana Oxford (Goodreads Author)
Paige wants two things: to land a full time librarian job and find the man of her dreams. On the cusp of thirty, she finds herself suddenly single and working part-time in a Michigan library. A handsome patron with a delicious accent appears at the reference desk, inadvertently sparking an idea that might help her land the promotion she so desperately needs. But that’s not the only thing he sparks.
James is in town from Glasgow, Scotland, on a summer artist residency. Luckily, the trip got him away from the pressure he feels to take over his uncle’s river tour business. He only wanted to clear his head and make his art in peace, but he wasn’t counting on finding an attractive librarian to fill his days.
With only eight weeks before James goes home to Scotland, Paige knows she should protect her heart. After all, she already wasted years with her commitment phobe ex. But the more she gets to know James, the less she can stick to her plan to just be friends. Is she just wasting her time again, or can they bridge the ocean between them to find a happily ever after of their own?
I am sorry for the delayed review. New job and new state is still keeping me busy.
This book was ok. I didn’t always like Paige’s character, especially when she just immediately broke up with her ex because of the lack of proposing plans. That type of thing has to take time in real life.
I did like the friendship between her and James but that also seemed to be instant love. At times it was hard to get into it but I did like the parts about Michigan.
Thank you Netgalley and publishers for the chance to read and review. This was a three star rating.
