Title: High Heels In The Highlands
Series: The Hiverton Sisters
Author: Liz Hurley
Published: March 24th, 2021
This is a fabulous feel-good, contemporary, romantic comedy and a great addition to this series involving five orphaned sisters who grew up in East London with loving parents and supportive neighbours but who struggled financially. They were shocked to discover that they were heiresses! You don’t need to have read the other stories in the series to enjoy this one but having met so many of the characters before did add to my enjoyment and understanding of this one.The oldest sister is Ariana and she’s settled in their new Norfolk home. Clem(entine) has travelled up to the Scottish Highlands to stay in their castle, Ruacoddy Castle, whilst she discovers more about their estate there and this is her story.
Clem has always struggled with reading and writing, they suspect she is dyslexic but has never been diagnosed. Despite this she is a very talented fashion designer – and volatile – young lady, who makes a lasting impression on those she meets! You need to read it for yourself to discover how her temper gets the better of her several times, get to know the people she meets, the new friends she makes and how she fights to prevent this Scottish estate being sold off.
There’s a mystery involving one of the folks resident in the castle, a great idea bringing the community together for a local’s wedding, discoveries to be made in the castle, a second chance romance and a new one, too, all packed into this fun, engaging family drama which had me laughing out loud and left me with a grin on my face. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this delightful story of community, family, attaining your dreams and love, complete with the added suspense and intrigue as well as humour which permeates it. Just wait till you read about her wellies and high heels – and what happens at the V&A!!
Thank you for my copy of this book which I have voluntarily read and honestly reviewed.
Clementine’s swapped a London flat for a Scottish castle – but will she get her fairytale ending?
After discovering they were heirs to an enormous fortune, the lives of the five Hiverton sisters have never been the same.
While oldest sister Ariana settles in Norfolk, Clementine heads up to the remote Scottish Highlands to move into the castle that forms part of their estate. Not bad for a girl brought up scrabbling for money in a tiny house in East London…
However, Clem quickly finds out that Ruacoddy Castle is falling apart, the neighbours – especially grumpy young farmer, Rory – are suspicious of her and the eccentric housekeeper, Ottoline, is still in residence.
But as Clem finds herself growing closer to the village community, even growing closer to Rory and forming an alliance with Ottoline, she realises that life in the Highlands might just be the change she needed.
She just needs to find out if Manolo Blahnik make wellies…
Take a trip to the gorgeous Scottish countryside with this utterly feelgood, romantic and hilarious read – fans of Jenny Colgan, Holly Martin and Cressida McLaughlin will love this!
Heroines with grit, gumption and good old-fashioned gorgeousness!
Liz Hurley writes exciting and heart warming stories that will make you cheer and laugh.
