Deb Sutherland is an event planner that is recuperating from a hysterectomy.  She receives an email invitation from the Laird of Loch Cameron asking her to plan the annual Spring Fling.  Without hesitation she packs up as many items she can fit in her car and heads for the Highlands.  She is anxious for the opportunity to find out everything she can about her Scottish roots.  While working around the beautiful castle she runs into Kyle Abernathy a property developer.  He is very arrogant but she enjoys the walks and talks that they share, along with sipping wine while gazing over the beautiful loch.  Deb finds an old tattered map among the cottage archives and looking at it she gasps in awe.  Did Deb just discover a long lost family secret about the cottage, did it really belong to her family all those years ago and was Kyle hiding the truth from her all along?

An Invitation to the Cottage by the Loch written by author Kennedy Kerr is an absolutely lovely story.  I enjoyed this story from cover to cover and felt heart-broken for Deb.  I was saddened by her medical issues and having to go through it alone.  But as the story went on I really enjoyed the mystery of the tale.  When she found the old map I was rapidly flipping pages anxious to see what she discovered.  I am always happy to return to Loch Cameron,  as the beautiful description of the Highlands always makes me feel like I have returned home.  This cozy romance story with family history and a little mystery was exactly what I needed.  I have loved this wonderful series and look forward to the next installment.  I highly recommend this book.

High on the hills above the wide blue loch, Deb pulls the torn, sepia photograph out of her pocket, tracing her thumb over the girl pictured playing happily amongst the heather. Her grandmother hid this secret for decades…

After losing her sense of self recovering from a serious operation, event planner 
Deb Sutherland is desperate to reconnect with her family and start living again. So, when an email arrives from the Laird of Loch Cameron asking her to plan his annual Spring Fling, Deb packs her life into her car and makes for the rolling hills of the Highlands. This could be her chance to explore the Scottish roots her beloved grandmother refused to speak about.

Auditioning bands and designing decorations at the Laird’s grand castle, Deb runs into property developer 
Kyle Abernethy on the edge of the manicured gardens. Kyle is maddeningly arrogant, but Deb can’t deny how his icy blue eyes make her stomach flip. And as they share a bottle of wine overlooking the glittering loch, Deb finds herself laughing like she hasn’t in years.

But when Deb finds an old map of tumbledown worker’s cottages in the castle archives, her heart stops. She remembers how tearful her grandmother would get when asked about her childhood. Was Loch Cameron her home before her family was tragically torn apart? Has Kyle been hiding this truth from her all along?

As the Spring Fling approaches, should Deb run from Loch Cameron for good? Or will confronting her heart-breaking family history mean she can finally move forward with Kyle by her side?


Kennedy Kerr is a British fiction author. She adores beaches, lochs and stone circles, and loves writing about small communities, mysteries and family secrets. She has a very cuddly cat called Twinkle who spends her days sleeping: Kennedy aspires to having Twinkle’s nap schedule one day.

Kennedy also loves cooking and baking all types of food, which is almost as much fun as eating it. Her favourite foods include (but are not limited to) Indian food, Victoria sponge, breakfast pastries with coffee and sushi. The only thing she’s not particularly keen on is artichoke, and she’d eat it, anyway.
