HEART IN THE HIGHLANDS by Heidi Kimball, Reviewed by Trixi Oberembt

I'm making this one of my top reads for 2023! It's THAT good. And I'm also putting the Highlands in Scotland as a destination vacation because the descriptions were so vivid, I felt I was there. Oh and Callum's brogue certainly! I could probably listen to his voice all day.

Emotionally charged, lots of raw moments between Callum and Kate, and the immersive way the author wrote this all made for an excellent story. My heart was so involved in the characters' lives that the real world melted away. There were also lots of tender moments and a sweet inspirational faith thread to round it out. I highly recommend this book for lovers of historical fiction who crave a deeper story to take them away for a few hours or even a few days! Heidi Kimball is one of my favorite authors and I always look forward to her books.

*Thanks to my library for a copy of this book. I voluntarily reviewed it.*



BackCover Blurb:
An arranged marriage was never what Callum Darrington, future Duke of Edinbane, imagined for himself. But with the well-being of his uncle’s family hanging in the balance, Callum strikes a bargain with his father and reluctantly agrees to tie himself to a stranger. The reality of the lovely Lady Katherine is more than he could have hoped for, and their wedding heralds a bright new future for the couple—until Callum discovers his father deliberately deceived him. Callum lashes out, setting in motion heartbreak not even he could have foreseen.

Four years later, Callum is ready to piece together the marriage he so carelessly destroyed. But their years apart have hardened Kate: she is not the naive and trusting young woman she once was, and she has no intention of allowing Callum a foothold in her life or her heart. Despite her coldness, Callum works to regain her trust and rebuild their marriage, not realizing Kate harbors a secret that could change everything—and this time, there is much more at stake than just her heart.
