This was a great romance I couldn t put it down Adrienne did a great job describing scenery and characters that I felt like I had traveled to Scotland This is a must read
I was pulled into Sarah s emotional turmoil right from the start of Seeking Solace Dunning used her words to weave a beautiful and engaging story, causing me to be swept away into the peace of the Scottish countryside Sarah s father s phone call shattered that peace with expectations and a plan for her future that had me furious The conversation with Bret that followed really gave me a great glimpse into his painful past I felt for both of them and wanted so badly for them to hold tightly to wha [...]
Life is what you make it and sometimes the toughest step to take is the first because once those wheels are in motion there is no turning back.This was the case with Sarah Collier because she knows all too well what it was like to lead a life that has always been perfectly scripted and in some respects my heart broke for her but I was internally whooping when her penny dropped on the one day that everyone was supposed to be singing from the same hymn page literally Because far from following the [...]

This amazing book was written by my mother s beautiful and talented cousin, Adrienne Dunning and I would highly recommend checking it out I laughed, I raged in a good way and I just about cried I don t normally read adult books, because I don t feel they re something I can necessarily relate to quite yet, but I still found the romance adorable and the image of Scotland that was created very easy to picture and it provided a nice backdrop to the story Every time I was worried that something was g [...]

Romance in ScotlandWhat I liked the setting, all the characters, the themeWhat kept me from reading this story until I was down to my last book the cover PLEASE CHANGE THE COVERWhat the writing did that kept it from being a better read details of the inconsequential picked up remote from the table and not enough detail of the area I would have liked a better feel of the pub I really never felt Sarah had an identity Maybe that was the plan, but it kept me disconnected as a reader from the main ch [...]

Sweet, sensuous, and charmingFor the first time in car too long, I read a romance that features an educated, intelligent heroine who shows backbone The hero of this delightful romance isn t the all too typical, womanizing billionaire He s not a billionaire at all How refreshing They meet, they initiate a friendship, they fall in lust, and then in love While there s no real action or suspense, the intimacy of the story saves it from vapid sweetness The story focuses on the relationship, not on ou [...]
