Tying the Scot is an enchanting story filled with memorable characters and witty banter. Trethewey seamlessly weaves together a captivating tale with gripping suspense and a charming romance. Delightful colloquial words are sprinkled throughout, which not only entertains but textures the characters as well. Alex is an absolute delight as he botches up his first meeting with headstrong Lucy, amongst other things, making the story that much more enjoyable as he scrambles to make things right. Twists in the plot work against him and Lucy as the harshness of Scottish life sets in, rife with cutthroats. With Lucy’s tenacity and Alex’s bullishness they brave the turbulence that entwines them together.
