Angus and Isabella have huge obstacles to climb in order to find their way to a happy ever after in this second instalment of the Lairds of the Isles series.
The beginning of Isabella and Angus' friendship is humorous, sweet and heartwarming. Both characters are extremely likeable as is Angus's sister Eilidh. You can't help but get pulled along with their hopes and dreams only for them to be dashed as reality hits. Isabella's brother, Freddy, won't countenance her marrying a Scot and Angus is determined to marry someone from the island who will be content to live in that remote and harsh environment.
Time is running out for both of them as Isabella is under immense pressure to choose a husband and to do so within a fortnight.
I was intrigued by the relationship between Eilidh and Isabella's other brother, Max. There were subtle hints of an attraction there and it will be interesting to see if their story continues in a further book in the series.
A Laird in London concludes in a satisfying and uplifting way. Isabella manages to stand up for herself and a solution is found to all the obstacles standing in their way.
A lovely read guaranteed to put a smile on your face as you turn the pages.
