Never has a sequel held me so rapt. This series, recommended through readgeek, is amazing. So happy to be reading a love story about mature smart people.

ein fesselndes Buch, das man am besten im Urlub liest, denn einmal gegonnen, kann man es nicht aus der Hand legen. Spannend erzählt, ich liebe Claires Humor, wenn sie die Reaktionen und die Geräusche der schottischen Männer beschreibt
