Publisher's Summary

She woke up married
When Lady Georgette Thorold awoke she saw...her corset hanging from the armoire...a very handsome, very naked Scotsman lying beside her...and a wedding ring on her finger! Before the attractive stranger can tell her his name, Georgette does the only sensible thing - she runs for it.
Little does she know, James MacKenzie isn't clear on what happened the night before, either. All he knows is that his money is missing and the stunning woman who just ran from the room is either his wife or a thief...or possibly both.
What happens in Scotland when two complete strangers fall madly, deeply in love?

Painfully slow paced...

I really wasn't impressed by this audiobook. It was just soooo slow. Just to give you an idea the whole story takes place in a 24 hour timeframe and this book is over 10 hours long. The first 5 hours of the story is just Georgette and James looking for each other after a night of drunken madness. Somehow by the magic of storytelling they manage to marry and fall in love within just one day. I really have issues with a story where I Love yous are exchanged within 24 hours. It's just not believable. At least the narrator was very good and I really liked her Scottish accent.

Very slow start ... almost gave it up

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The first of the book dragged on and on ... I was at the point of putting it down as unreadable. I'm glad I didn't because the second half was worth hearing.

What could Jennifer McQuiston have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

She could cut down the H/H rushing around trying to find each other ... all the while dragging the book down as to what occurred the night before .... way way too long on that aspect of the story IMO.

Which character – as performed by Lana J. Weston – was your favorite?

The hero, James, was my favorite. Even when he was hateful ... I liked him. The narrator did a good job ... even with the extensive dragging parts of the story.

Was What Happens in Scotland worth the listening time?

As I mentioned before, only half of it was worth the listen. That is why the rating is so low from me. The last half was actually a 3.5 out of 5 stars for me .... the beginning half was a -2 star if that were possible here.

Any additional comments?

Knowing what I do now, and even enjoying the second half, I would not have missed not reading this book. Perhaps it is your cup of tea throughout ... everyone has different tastes after all.
