Hit Me With Your Best Scot by Suzanne Enoch
Wild Wicked Highlanders #3
February 9, 2021, by St. Martin’s Press
This is the third book in the Wild Wicked Highlanders series and I’m sure readers will be happy to FINALLY get Coll’s book.
Coll is the wildest of the three MacTaggert brothers and the least enthused about taking an English bride in order to preserve his mother’s financing of their family estate in Scotland. But both of his brothers have already wed and he only has a couple of weeks to settle down in matrimony.
Enter in one Mrs. Persephone Jones, an actress who is currently the darling of the London stage. Coll takes an interest in her and then becomes her protector when it’s obvious that someone is trying to murder her.
This is probably my second favorite of the series. I really enjoyed this couple and liked the plot twist of Persie’s true identity. I think this heroine absolutely worked for this Highland brother. The murder mystery was nicely done and I really had no idea who the villain could be until the very end. I also really enjoyed seeing the entire MacTaggert family finally have a reunion and work through their differences.
This was a lovely wrap-up to the series.
Final grade- B
The Duke Heist by Erica Ridley
The Wild Wynchesters #1

I wanted to like this book more than I actually did. The blurb reads like something that would be right up my alley, adopted families and missing paintings and abducted dukes totally sound awesome right?
I think this was a case of the writing didn’t really appeal to me, I ended up doing a whole lot of skimming. I liked the actual idea and concept but didn’t love the execution. The found family of adopted siblings have this off-hand way of talking to each other and it left me feeling kind of meh. I also think the romantic pairing was just okay. Their chemistry didn’t really jump off the page at me.
I do realize this may be a case of me and not the book. This is will probably be 100% someone else’s jam.
Final grade- C-/D
