Highland Fling by Katie Fforde is about a woman called Jenny (Genevieve's her full name) who has a job as a virtual assisitant. When her client asks her to go up to Scotland to check on a mill he's thinking of closing she ends up trying to save the mill and work at a road side cafe (the Homely Haggis). Then, to complicate things even further, her boyfriend (who she's "practically engaged to" but doesn't actually love anymore) turns up just as she realises she's falling for Ross - a frequent and infruriating customer at the Homely Haggis...
I liked this book, it wasn't too predictable. I didn't know what was going to happen all the time which is a problem with some books. It even threw a couple of surprises at me.
There was one problem though - Jenny kept making assumptions which was a bit annoying but apart from that the book was really good. It was a lovely story and I could really understand Jenny's feelings (and I could really understand why Jenny like Ross...).
The cover was another great one from Katie Fforde - I really like the covers she has on her books. They have a great sketchy style.
