Title: Snaring Angus
Series: A Captain’s Folly Novel
Author: Adrienne Dunning
Genre: Women’s Fiction Romance
Release Date: April 25, 2017
Angus Donaghue and Kerry Hunter have spent their entire lives in the coastal Scottish village of North Berwick–battling wits and hurling insults. It was just the way of things.
Yet, Angus begins to question himself when his mates in The Captain’s Folly suggest a different type of connection to his life-long nemesis.
In between her three jobs and caring for her terminally ill mother, Kerry finds herself still trading barbs with the sarcastic drummer every night during her bartending shift at The Ship’s Inn Tavern. But here was the problem –what are you supposed to do when the one person you can’t get off your mind is the one person who gets on your last nerve?
What is it they say? All’s fair in love and war?
Forget that…it’s all complicated in love and war.
Do you ever just want to pick up a book and have it be a sweet, easy read, without a ton of drama? Well, this is the book for you. Snaring Angus is the first book of Adrienne’s that I’ve read, and it’s a straight up contemporary romance that leaves your heart a little fuller and beating a bit faster.
Angus and Kerry have known each other all their lives, and have been frienemies just as long. They never seem to have a kind word for each other. Angus knows Kerry’s going through a rough time, and when he does try to be nice, Kerry gets suspicious.
This is a straight up feel good story. I’m a huge sucker for Scottish romances, and this did not disappoint. Being that this is the first of the “Captain’s Folly” Series, we are introduced to a bunch of characters that are all great, and I’m very excited to see who Adrienne brings us next.
Adrienne Dunning is simply a Southern gal who has fun playing poorly at golf when she’s not crafting novels. She loves all forms of expression—writing, dancing, cooking, talking—and does them frequently and with abandon. She creates endearing and feisty characters full of humor and just a little awkwardness to “keep them real”. Although a possible mystery series is under current exploration, her current works are primarily aligned with the contemporary romance/chick lit genres. Seeking Solace, her debut novel which released in April 2015, is the prequel to The Captain’s Folly Series releasing spring/summer 2017, which explores the stories of three male characters in the debut novel. She also has published Revolution, which is a contemporary romance with a paranormal twist.
