I loved reading about the characters from all of the Kinloch series books again and when they all get together, shenanigans definitely occur. I actually laughed out loud several times, especially while reading the antics of Zoe’s mom and her best friend Morag. They cracked me up and are totally people I’d love to have a drink, or ten, with.

Hide the glassware – these ladies aren’t afraid to get physical! But after all is said and done, we still get our HEA and an epilogue to tell us what happens after the big day.

I received a complimentary e-copy of this novella from the author. All opinions are my own.
