Shortbread Cookie Princess is a very entertaining romance.  I definitely recommend this book. My thanks to the publisher and Netgalley.  This is my unbiased review.

I thought this was a sweet romance. I mean, who doesn’t like a hot Scot in kilts? Ian was a wonderful character and his relationship with his sister was nice. He’s a forensic specialist who is working on research into Highland Falls Scottish descendants. He is charming, intelligent, handsome… everything you want in a romantic hero. Sophia, on the other hand, did not appeal to me. She fought Ian on everything about her past. Yes, she had a nasty stepmother (I really don’t like that stereotype), but I would think she’d want to know more about her past. And what was with the granny? Yes, there are family secrets, but after a while, all of them became a little silly. Plus, it felt like there were a few strings left hanging so I’m wondering if this is going to be part of a series.

I liked the story overall, I just didn’t care for the female main character. But there was a satisfying HEA that left me with a smile. 

Recommended with reservations.

This is an entertaining and interesting story. Small town coziness and no secrets can be kept for long. Add a bakery, Scottish theme, romance and a bit of family mystery and you have a good story. 
My first time reading this authors work and found it well done and will look for more.

Sophia is new in town and knows next to nothing about the history of her ancestors, except that they are from Scotland.
Ian is interesting and very keen to get behind the family history.

Small towns have always been a bit strange, basically everyone knows everything about the others, but then there are big secrets that no one wants to know about.

I found the story cute and surprising how little physical attraction the story gets by with.

I was quite entertained by the book.

Have fun reading!

A charming and delightful Scottish romance. Interesting genealogy. Nice small-town friendliness. A bit of a mystery.
