My Book Review: 

I would like to begin by saying a huge thank you to Rachel from Rachel’s Random Resources and the author for giving me a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

A Perfect Discovery is a very cute and flirty romance set in Scotland. This was the perfect summer time read. We weren’t able to go on vacation this year, so I read this book while enjoying the sunshine on my deck. While I got lost in the story, I could pretend I was on a romantic adventure across the ocean. 

A Perfect Discovery tells the story of Rhona, a perky archaeologist, and Callum, a grumpy businessman from her hometown. I loved that Rhona had a unique occupation. Her fascination with the Iron Age and history added a unique flair to the story. I really appreciated that she was a heroine with a peace loving nature who always wanted everyone to get along. I think perhaps I saw a bit of myself in her. I enjoyed watching her character arc as she learned to be more assertive. I was rooting for our bubbly heroine, and I think readers will, too! 

Rhona and Callum have serious chemistry together, but they have a huge problem– their families hate each other! The two families have been feuding fiercely for years. Will Rhona and Callum be able to find their happily ever after? Or will their love become a thing of the past? 

The only aspect of this book that gives me pause is that it had some strong language and a few slightly more mature scenes than I was expecting. However, it’s no worse than a modern PG-13 movie. 

If you enjoy romances with grumpy heroes and happy heroines, funny banter, and romantic locations across the pond,  you’re sure to enjoy getting lost in the pages of A Perfect Discovery!  

Synopsis from the Back Cover:

A Perfect Discovery

To find love, they need to dig deep.

When kind-hearted archaeologist Rhona Lamond has her precious research stolen, she returns home to the Isle of Mull, lost and frustrated. An island project that tugs at Rhona’s soul comes up, and she’s desperate to take it on. But there’s a major problem.

Property developer Calum Matheson has a longstanding feud with the Lamond family. After a plot of land he owns is discovered to be a site of historical importance, his plans are thrown into disarray and building work put on hold. Calum doesn’t think things can get any worse, until archaeologist Rhona turns up. Not only is she a Lamond, but she’s all grown up, and even stubbornly unromantic Calum can’t fail to notice her – or the effect she has on him.

Their attraction ignites but how can they overcome years of hate between their families? Both must decide what’s more important, family or love.
