My Very Best Friend by Cathy Lamb

What They Say.....From a childhood friendship sustained over years and distance, to a journey of discovery, Cathy Lamb’s poignant novel tells of two women whose paths converge with unforeseen results—and reveals the gift of connection, and the challenges that can change everything for the better…
Charlotte Mackintosh is an internationally known bestselling romance writer who has no romance, and remains a mystery to her fans. In fact, she has little in her life besides her work, her pampered cats, and her secluded home off the coast of Washington. And then there is her very best friend, Bridget, who lives in Scotland, where Charlotte lived until she was fifteen. Bridget, whom Charlotte hasn’t seen in twenty years, but continues to write to—though the replies have stopped. Hurt by the silence, an opportunity arises to find answers—and maybe much more.
Charlotte must finally return to Scotland to sell her late father’s cottage. It was his tragic death when Charlotte was fifteen that began her growing isolation, and the task is fraught with memories. But her plans are slowed when she’s confronted with the beautiful but neglected house, the irresistible garden—and Toran, Bridget’s brother. Capable and kind, Toran has the answers Charlotte seeks. And as she is drawn deeper into the community she thought she’d left behind, Charlotte learns not only more about her dear friend, but about herself—and discovers a new and unexpected path.

What I Say....This book was a first for me.  I didn't make myself finish it.  Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Cathy Lamb, and I have always enjoyed her books.  But this one was just not for me.  It was the dialogue.  Charlotte is a super uptight science lover who writes romance novels?  And her thought process is super uptight mixed with a lot of weird sex thoughts.  I don't mean weird sex thoughts.   I just mean weird, random sex thoughts that didn't fit the storyline.

I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving!  I'm super thankful for all the great books I've received this year.  I hope everyone has a great turkey day surrounded by family and friends!
