Product description

About the Author

After working as a deputy head teacher in a large primary school, Lizzie decided it was time to leave the chalk face and pursue her first love: writing. She joined the Romantic Novelists’ Association’s New Writers’ Scheme, honed her craft and wrote Tall, Dark and Kilted(2012), quickly followed a year later by Boot Camp Bride. Lizzie loves the quick fire interchanges between the hero and heroine in the old black and white Hollywood movies, and hopes this love of dialogue comes across in her writing. Although much of her time is taken up publicising Tall, Dark and Kilted and Boot Camp Bride, she has published a third novel SCOTCH ON THE ROCKS and started researching number four. Lizzie is a founding member of indie publishing group - New Romantics Press. In November 2014 they held an Author Event at Waterstones High Street, Kensington, London the icing on the cake as far as they are concerned - and a fitting way to celebrate their achievements. As for the years Lizzie spent as a teacher, they haven't quite gone to waste as she is building up a reputation as a speaker on the subject of self-publishing. She hopes you enjoy reading Scotch on the Rocks and that you will check out her other novels.

What I loved about this book was how easy it was to see it unfolding in my mind, and how much it reminded me of those old black and white films, where the hero and heroine exchange snappy dialogue and circle round each other, but you just know that they are made for each other - however much she makes sarcastic comments, and however much he tries to play his cards close to his chest. This would make a great film, although preferably in colour! It has all the ingredients, after all:
Setting? The story takes place on the Scottish island of Eilean na Sgairbh, which is cut off from the mainland twice a day, and is reached by a causeway called The Narrows, so there is a fantastic setting.
Heroine? A sassy, independent, intelligent young woman called Ishabel Stuart, who has returned to the island after the death of her father - a man, it has to be said, who was not exactly easy to like. Issy returns to her Aunt Esme's home, hoping to find peace and quiet, and some sort of refuge, with the woman who has been like a mother to her, since her own mother, Isabella Tartaruga - a famous opera singer - more or less abandoned Issy in pursuit of her career. What Issy finds is that Esme is about to leave the island for one of her "missions" and she is leaving behind a paying guest. Issy isn't happy about having unexpected company. Not only does she have to organise the service for her father, but she has secretly broken off her engagement to her boss's son, Jack, and also quit her job. She intends to start afresh on the island, and having to care for a house guest isn't part of her plan.
Hero? The unwelcome house guest turns out to be Brodie, a tall, auburn-haired hunk of gorgeousness, all the way from America.

Ishabel Stuart was born on Cormorant Island, off the coast of Scotland. When her city life goes into meltdown she returns to her roots, coming home to the property now owned by her aunt, Esmee. Unfortunately for her, Esmee is just heading in the opposite direction to join one of the protest camps that have been her lifelong passion, leaving Ishabel in charge of the sole remaining occupant of the guest house – Brodie, a ridiculously good-looking, wealthy American hunk. Let personality clashes commence...
As someone who lives part time in Scotland, I was drawn to this book by the setting, rather than the plot, but was delighted to find it an absolutely charming read, with wonderful atmosphere and great dialogue including portions of totally authentic Scottish dialect. There is humour (Pershing the parrot is hilarious), romance, more than one mystery to be solved, and the sort of outrageous characters that you really meet in this kind of small community.
About the only thing I found hard to swallow was how utterly too-good-to-be-true Brodie remained throughout the book. He was a saint, considering the sort of behaviour he was subjected to, and not just by Ishabel. Where can I find this paragon? I want him!
Highly recommended for lovers of Scotland and romance, with an intriguing touch of mystery.

I loved this book so much I had to force myself to put it down or Christmas might not have happened! Whisked away to a beautiful and beguiling Scottish Isle, where our heroine Issy has fled her love-rat fiancé to carry out her father's last wishes, we are treated to a cast of intriguing and delightful characters whose lives and loves form the backdrop to this fascinating tale. When Issy's 'placard carrying' Aunt Esme disappears to fight yet another cause, she is forced to reside in very close proximity with Brodie, a handsome American, with his own agenda. Add the mystery surrounding the family's ancient and now defunct distillery, her Diva mother and Pershing the Parrot and it's a blend to savour! A real page turner, sexy and funny and not to missed. Highly recommended.

excellent story - even if you're not into romantic fiction, you would enjoy this. Mills and Boon it isn't - there is humour, twists in the story, and the occasional sex scene that doesn't leave you feeling like a voyeur - plus it's all set in one of the most beautiful places in the world - and Lizzie takes you there and you can see it through her eyes.

Highly recommended.

I love reading about Scotland and this author's books have a ring of authenticity to them which makes them more than simply enjoyable romances. I like the way she weaves 'older characters' into the story too and how love isn't just for the young. It's also for the young at heart. Esme was an absolute delight and I could totally identify with her. Looking forward to more from this writer.
