Blog Tour: Review of A View to a Kilt by Wendy Holden

Today is my stop on the blog tour for A View to a Kilt by Wendy Holden. The book is already out an you can click here to order a copy. I have a review for you today but don't forget to check out the other stops on the tour for more exclusive content and reviews. 

Here's what its all about:

Forget about Cool Britannia and Gallic Chic. Scotland is having a fashion moment...

London's most glamorous glossy magazine is in trouble. Advertising revenues are non existent, and if editor Laura Lake can't pick them up, she's out of a job.
According to those in the know, Scotland is having a fashion moment. Haggis tempura is on Michelin-starred menus, smart spas are offering porridge facials, and a chain of eco-hotels is offering celebrity bagpipe lessons. So Laura's off to a baronial estate in the Scottish Highlands to get a slice of this ultra-high-end market.
It's supposed to be gorgeous, glitzy and glamorous. But intrigue follows Laura like night follows day. And at Glenravish Castle – a shooting lodge fit for a billionaire – Laura finds herself hunting for a scoop that won't just save her job, it could save her life...

Review: This is a great premise for a book and you know I am all about a book being set in Scotland. I love the idea that everything Scottish is trending and people are excited about Haggis and fashion. I do feel like there could have been a little more of a glimpse of the Scottish landscape or the cities a little but still excited to have a book set here. 
Laura is not the easiest character to like all of the time because she has flaws like you and me. It is those flaws that make her interesting though and good to spend the book with. I liked that she is determined to do well in her career and doesn't mind trekking across the country fr that. She is fairly vain and does want things to come easier in life but I think that again his adds to her intrigue. 
This is the third book in a series but I have not read the other two books and I was fine getting to know the characters in this one. It reads like a stand alone and has enough things going on within the pages that you don't need to know what happened previously or how these characters got to be where they are. The characters seem well-developed and we certainly get enough of their back story to understand them. This is a very much tongue in cheek novel so don't take it too seriously but you will laugh and if you're looking for something light-hearted to escape from the real world then this could be the one for you.
