Treat yourself to some extra romance with this exclusive, straight-to-digital short story from the Sunday Times No. 1 Bestseller.

Plus the first chance to read the opening chapter of Katie's novel, The Perfect Match.

5.0 out of 5 stars Familiar but none the worse for that 13 Dec. 2013
By Anne TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
I am an unashamed fan of Katie Fforde's light romance novels and was delighted when I was able to secure a free copy of this novella via NetGalley in exchange for a review.

This reads like a precis of a typical Katie Fforde novel and readers familiar with her works will enjoy themselves in ticking off the usual ingredients - grumpy older writer, pregnant dog, underestimated heroine, country better than the city, snowed in at Christmas, etc. etc. Don't let this put you off - in this case the familiar is well done and a pleasure to read. For readers new to Ms Fforde's writing this is an excellent introduction and should encourage you to read some of the longer books.

It is the length that is both the best and the worst of this novella. The writing is exactly the right length for the format - there is neither too little nor too much content so the story flows well and is elegantly paced. For the reader, however, it merely whets the appetite and you want another full length novel to get your teeth into (and the publishers have kindly provided a brief extract of a forthcoming new volume as part of the download).

By itself this is a quick and easy read (under an hour for me) but very satisfying and self-contained. An excellent, heart-warming and feel-good novella with some very witty touches. I enjoyed it very much.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Perfect. 13 Dec. 2013
5 Stars.

From Scotland With Love evokes everything that is important to me about Christmas. It isn't the expensive presents, posh food, and over the top decorations. It's about appreciation, for what you have, what you can give, and for where you are.

I may have been born, raised and live in England, but Scotland has my soul, I have visited many times over the last few years, and I fall in love with it a little more every time. Katie has described exquisitely exactly how beautiful and wild it actually is, and I fell in love with this charming little tale pretty much from the first page.

If you put Scotland, Snow and Loch in a synopsis to me, I am there hook, line and sinker. Add to that a well appointed cabin, lots of home cooking, a grouchy Scotsman, and a happy-go-lucky, slightly ditzy girl, and you have the perfect recipe for success.

Rory definitely had my sporran swinging and my bagpipes standing to attention ;-) I love a man who isn't afraid to show love for his animals and you get that in spades reading about Griselda his pregnant dog. You also come to understand why he is a little prickly around the opposite sex, which for me made him all the more endearing.

Daisy is great in that she proves to Rory that you should never judge a book by its cover, she may come across as a disaster when it comes to PR, but she makes up for it with other skills, and anyone who can knock up a crumble and custard in the kitchen has my vote.

All-in-all this short (I wish it was longer), incredibly sweet, heart-warming novel summed up Christmas for me. LOVED IT!

ARC provided through Netgalley, it was an absolute pleasure to provide the above honest review in exchange for the privilege.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quick read 22 Oct. 2014
Firstly thank you to Cornerstone Digital (Random House) for approving me for a review copy of this book! I’ve had it on my TBR for quite a while however now that Christmas is starting to roll back around I made the time to read it!

This story is all about MC Daisy who finds herself in a sticky situation at work that leads to an even stickier situation in Scotland.

This book is set in Scotland, up North where the world stands still when it snows and trust me I can verify that fact 100% being Scottish myself! I loved the location for the story and the weather adds to the romance.

Daisy is trying to be the best at her job but despite her attempts it seems she’s better at other things, like cooking and getting brooding, grumpy authors to come out of their shell. I loved how much she contrasted with Rory but I also loved that Rory was 100% the brooding, grumpy Scottish man! In my mind he was incredibly handsome – sort of a Daniel Craig type vibe going on – and I loved that underneath all the grump he was actually a bit of a sweetheart with a gentle soul.

The story is set over New Year and it seems like it’s a new beginning for everyone in the story which I loved – especially great to read near New Year to bring the bells in!

3.0 out of 5 stars A typical Katie Fforde... 13 Dec. 2013
*Review copy granted in exchange for an honest review*

This novella is a typical Katie Fford really in that our leading lady - Daisy - is "comfortably middle class", quirky, kinda ditsy but generally likeable and our leading man - Rory - is gruff, rude, older than the leading lady and has a, hidden, soft squishy centre where his lady is concerned.

It had Fforde's usual witty banter and her typical "I love you, off to bed and want to marry you" kind of ending.
However, as it was a short story there wasn't the interesting career/cause that her work usually wraps you up in (ok there was I guess but she didn't have time to really go into it, so it's mentioned then passed over).
The random assortment of secondary characters that you grow to love throughout her novels was also missing (although there are secondary characters, they aren't really developed).
Plus the whole relationship development between Rory and Daisy felt too rushed and they generally lacked chemistry.

Also, for a Christmas release, it really isn't that Christmassy. In fact, it isn't Christmassy at all. It's set at the New Year and it just fails to capture the spirit of the occasion...

I'd say, if you like Ms. Fforde's other work then give it a go. You can inhale it in an hour or so. It was enjoyable enough to pass some time, but it's forgettable.

If you are new to Ms. Fforde's work I'd recommend starting with Restoring Grace or Life Skills.
