Alright, so I fell for one. When I bought this book I was thinking "bodice ripper", and that just isn't my speed. But I do so love a good time travel story. This is a good time travel story and more than satisfied me. With all of today's products--you forget people naturally stink! Ms. Hamlett reminds you of that fact in this little gem. She also tells you that furniture is comprised of rough wood, clothing is made from rough cloth, and eating the food is just rough. Lucy and Maxine, our transported heroines, are so funny. When they can't seem to adapt to the hard lifestyle they now face, they try to introduce modern conveniences to ye old Scotland. The catered dinner party was so much fun, I read it out loud to a friend. Buy the book and settle back for a good read with a totally correct ending. An aside to the author: (thanks for telling me what Scots don't wear under their kilts.)
