Review For: It Happened in the Highlands by May McGoldrick
It Happened in the Highlands - May McGoldrick

It Happened in the Highlands by May McGoldrick is book Two in "The Pennington Family" series.  This is the story of Lady Josephine 'Jo" Pennington and Captain Wynne Melfort.  We did meet Jo in the first book 'Romancing the Scot' but feel this can easily be a standalone book.
Jo and Wynne had been engaged about about to get married when Wynne broke things off.  After Wynne left to go to the Royal Navy Jo retried from society to do charitable work.  Wynne reasons for breaking things off that help somewhat to understand he thoughts behind hurting Jo.  Jo who has always had feeling of upset from being adopted because she never her new her blood family but having Wynne break off their engagement just added to that sorrow.  
Years later Wynne is retired from the Royal Navy along with his friend and they go forward to open up a place for people with brain injuries or mental issues to be treated.  There Wynne learns something related to Jo that brings them forward in meeting again.  
But can past hurts be forgiving and can what Jo is learning about herself help in moving forward?
Great Story!

It Happened in the Highlands - May McGoldrick

I haven't read the previous book in the series or anything else by the authors but I definitely didn't feel lost while reading this book. The main characters Jo and Wynn were likeable and interesting to follow. The first half of this was really interesting to me and I feel like I read it really fast. After the secrets behind Jo's real parents were revealed I felt like the book kind of dragged on. I would definitely be interested in reading more of this series.

 

Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the galley.

Outstanding Historical Romance
It Happened in the Highlands - May McGoldrick

It Happened In The Highlands by May McGoldrick is an amazing historical romance.  Ms. McGoldrick has delivered a book that is well-written and loaded with fantastic, lovable characters.  Jo is an orphan raised and loved in the Pennington household as a daughter and was jilted days before their wedding by Hugh.  Their story will take you on an emotional roller coaster.  There is plenty of drama, humor, action, suspense and spice to keep readers glued to this book.  I enjoyed every page of this book and look forward to reading more from May McGoldrick in the future.  It Happened In The Highlands is book 2 of The Pennington Family Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book that I received from NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
