BOOK REVIEW- Santa in a Kilt by Donna Kauffman *


On the wild dunes of a Scottish Isle, mistletoe and mischief are the best way to heat up a holiday best shared by two . . .

The wind-whipped December sea air of the isle of Kinloch invigorates Kira MacLeod as she sets out to tame rugged Shay Callaghan. The Scottish bachelor may be as wary of a wedding ring as a snowman is of the hot sun, but it’s no secret how he looks at her—as if she were the only woman in the world. Now, with the encouragement of the canny islanders, and watching two of their best friends tie the knot in a romantic winter wedding, Kira will ignite Shay’s heart—and weave the perfect Celtic Christmas to say aye do . . .AMAZON LINK

While establishing the history of the main character and their surrounds, I still felt like it was still a slow start. 
It was good to get a feel of the community and the friendships there. I just wish that I had liked it more.  It just didn't draw me in all that much. 
There's a lot of talk that goes on about how Kira was a forever kind of girl and how jaded Shay was because of what he has witnessed off the island as an attorney.  It felt kind of repetitive conversation between the M.C.'s and even some of their friends.  
There will be some intimate times shared in this story even as Shay is fighting a losing battle against anything deeper.
There is a sweet ending with an interesting   Epilogue included.
