Today it is my pleasure to bring you my review of High Heels in the Highlands by Liz Hurley on day one of her amazing blog tour!
So High Heels in the Highlands is the third novel in the series about the Hiverton sisters – if you want a quick catch up them please head over to check out my reviews of the first two books in the series;

I adored the first 2 novels in this series, and High Heels in the Highlands was no exception. Lady Clementine is having a bit of a rough time in her career, and so when her older sister Ariana asks that she heads up to Scotland to check out their newly inherited Scottish castle, she is more than happy to do so. What she doesn’t anticipate though is the resident housekeeper and the local bearded young farmer. Clem is hot headed with a temper to match, but with her heart in the right place. She is fiercely loyal to her family, and will do what it takes to ensure that they are all safe and well. What she doesn’t anticipate though, particularly as a city dweller through and through, is falling in love with her castle. It ignites something in her – her passion for fashion, but it also gives her something to fight for. She finds herself working within her small community, and realising that the castle is just as important to peoples livelihoods as it is to hers. Add in a very stubborn housekeeper who hasn’t left the castle in decades and what follows is certainly not boring!
I love this series, I really do. It provides us with the familiarity of following one family, the Hiverton sisters, whilst also introducing us to a whole new story each time with a wealth of new characters. It’s the best of both worlds in terms of giving us a great standalone novel, whilst learning about a family member that you’ve already been briefly introduced to! The five sisters are all so different as well, so none of the stories can possibly be the same, even though they all experienced the same traumatic childhood following the loss of their parents at such a young age. Its like putting on your favourite comfortable cardigan but in a new colour!
I am more than happy to recommend this novel. It is a light easy that really draws you in and gets you to engage with the characters. I loved the dynamic between Clem and Otto, and I adore the fierce loyalty of the sisters to one another. If I was to have one gripe, it would be that the books haven’t been released in chronological order – it caused me a little confusion to begin with (you’ll understand if you’ve read the first two already) but if that’s the worst thing I can say then I think we are doing well! So please do go out and grab yourself a copy of this fabulous novel!
