The Scotsman Who Saved Me

The Scotsman Who Saved Me by Hannah Howell has a well written introduction to a new series in which Scottish men who have immigrated to American will each have the story of how they find their brides told. In this book each brother is met and a bit is told about him but this is the story of the eldest, Iain McEnroy, and the woman he finds to settle down with.

This book seems to be a good read with a plot similar to many I have read and the characters were enjoyable and entertaining. You will definitely want to read the next book in the series. *JK
