Review: Great Scot by Suzanne Enoch (part of the Kissing Under the Mistletoe anthology)

          


Print Length: 353 total pages
Publisher: St.Martin's Press (September 28, 2021)

From Goodreads.com:  Jane Bansil knows she will never have a fairy-tale life. But even at three-and-thirty and well past marriageable age, though, she has to admit that the architect the MacTaggerts have hired could turn even a confirmed spinster’s head.

My Rating: 3 stars out of 5

Let me begin by saying that this is obviously an addition to a well-established series, and while I don't feel like I missed out on anything having not known who these characters were previously, I will say that the family is so large that trying to keep all the secondary characters straight was a daunting task that often lead to confusion. 

Once I gave up trying to do that, it was easier to enjoy this novel for what it was. A quick read about "true love" or what I like to call "instalove" a trope which I hate with a passion. However, I understand that this was a novella and therefore certain things have to be overlooked (like the fact that they met, fell in love, slept together and decided to get married over the course of three days? A week at most)? 

It was easy to see the attraction between them, and the blossoming friendship between Jane and the other MacTaggert wives made for an enjoyable read. I just wish this story would have been a bit longer so that their story would have felt more fleshed out and believable. I do however believe that this was an excellent start to this anthology and I can't wait to read the other novellas. 

DISCLAIMER: I received a complimentary copy of this novel from the publisher. This has not affected my review in any way. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are 100% my own.
