What Happens In the Castle is the Book #3 in Kelsey McKnight‘s ‘What Happens’ series.
What Happens In The Castle
He’s a Scotsman through and through with the kilt and loch-side manor to prove it.
Savannah Adelson spent years sacrificing her midwife career for what she thought was love. Now that she’s kicked her cheating ex to the curb, she’s transforming her long-forgotten dream into a thriving business. Amid her new patients, she manages to travel to Scotland to be a bridesmaid in her college friend’s wedding only to meet the cousin of the groom, a tall shot of whisky in a tartan glass.
Rhys Mackinnon has grown restless and is eager to find his next role in life, whatever that may be. When he meets Savannah, he’s all too happy to make that role her personal tour guide. He ends up playing boyfriend too after her ex shows up unannounced.
When the fictional relationship begins to feel real, Savannah’s torn between the fire she feels for Rhys and the passion she has for her career. No matter what she decides, someone will end up hurt, because what happens in the castle doesn’t always stay there.
My review – 4/5
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. There’s romance, humour, friendship – all the ingredients of a nice, easy to read romance. The soul searching by Savannah, having to choose between her career, which she’s passionate about, the love she feels for Rhys, is so easy to relate to because it’s a common problem modern women face. That their love and connection was able to overcome this was really moving.
The descriptions of the Scottish Highlands added to the enjoyment. I’m definitely reading the other two books in the series soon and other books by the author.
I received an e-ARC of this novel from the publisher and am voluntarily leaving a review.
