Love on Loch Ness by Aubrie Dionne

Love on Loch Ness by Aubrie Dionne
Contemporary Paranormal Romance
Length: 198 Pages
ISBN: 978-1-62135-250-1

Dr. Gail Phillips steps onto the shores of Loch Ness to disprove the Loch Ness monster theory for good so everyone can stop wasting their time. As a marine biologist with a background in archeology, she’s convinced all of the world’s myths such as Big Foot, the Tasmanian devil, and even Nessie are lies. Her father disappeared while following Yettie tracks in the Alps, and she doesn’t want to lose another mislead soul.

Flynn Maloney comes from a family of fanatic cryptozoologists. As a native of Scotland, he believes in Nessie as strong as Gail believes in science. Despite his initial attraction for her, he’s joined her research team to prove her wrong. He wants to find Nessie for a special girl in his life, to show her dreams really can come true.

As they conduct sonar studies and sweeps of the lake, their differing opinions are at odds with their budding attraction. Gail doesn’t believe in anything unscientific, such as romance, thinking the charming Flynn Maloney is full of baloney. Flynn can’t believe he’s falling for someone with no imagination or faith. To make matters worse, their videographer is covering his true identity. Together they must unravel his plan before he destroys everything they are working for. Will Gail force Flynn to question his faith, or will she discover more than she bargained for in the Scottish highlands?

I love that this book was set in Scotland and revolved around the Loch Ness Monster.  It was a good change up from the regular romance and I really liked it.  

One of the main things I walked away with after reading this book is the reminder that believing in things, having a hope and chasing dreams is a good thing.  Don't kill the joy.  Flynn has that hope and believing nature.  He believes in the Loch Ness Monster and he is trying desperately to find the proof to validate his belief.

While Gail starts out as a kill joy, trying to disprove Flynn's theories, the magical mist of the Loch Ness starts to get to her and she finds herself wanting to believe too.  Gail and Flynn start out working to prove each other wrong, but end up working together.  The working together thing was especially satisfying.

This was a fun book- a vacation for the mind.  :)  I read through it quickly and especially enjoyed the ending.  <wink, wink>  There is something about believing in the magical and mystical that is good for the soul.
