    One thought on “Imperfect Beauty”

    1. Very short, but sweet read. This had the potential to be a great book. So many possibilities, considering the premise, and I wish the author had explored it a little more. It would have been interesting to see Alsadair and Trisha's relationship develop. We got so little time to spend with them as a couple.

    2. VERY short novelette about how only girls who are scarred will ever score handsome, talented blind Scottish dudes. And that right there was the first of MANY reasons not to like this cliched mini-book. I liked reading the blurb about the author more than I enjoyed her novelette.

    3. This was a first by the author for me, a little too sweet for my tastes but not bad. This story is about Trisha and Alasdair. Alasdair is visiting from Scotland, he's at the Highland Games in Indiana and he's blind and recently abandoned by his cousin at the games. He ends up meeting Trisha whose voice does something to him. The two hit it off really well and spend days hanging out, but Trisha is worried that if Alasdair knew what she really looked like he wouldn't want to associate with her. Al [...]

    4. PDF version via author for honest reviewTo add much more to the summary above would be to spoil the book due to it being a shorter story, so in contrast to my usual summary and then thoughts, I will go straight to my thoughts.I thought this was a wonderfully sweet and romantic story. It shows the reader that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and not everyone has the same views on what beauty is. Alasdair is a wonderful character who doesn't let being blind stop him from doing things he enjoye [...]

    5. Fun, clean read. Loveable characters. Quick and very enjoyable. Being blind has its advantages, because Alasdair can see the perfect beauty of Trisha when all others can only see her scars.

    6. Sometimes I'm just in the mood for something sweet and short and this one met my need perfectly. Some author's have trouble with plotting or pace when it comes to the shorter books, but that was not the case with this one.The book is about a young man, Alasdair, who is from Scotland and visiting his cousin who has moved to the States. Trevor takes Alasdair to the local Ft. Wayne (IN) Highland Games for an afternoon of fun and then ditches him. Trouble is, Alasdair is blind and is in a strange lo [...]

    7. Originally posted at: longandshortreviewsspWhat can a blind man do when his unreliable cousin abandons him in the middle of a Highland Games festival? Should he follow a woman who has a beautiful voice?Alasdair Buchanan was blinded in an accident a few years ago and has acquired a helpful guide dog, Foster. However, attending a festival requires more than a guide dog to help him find where he needs to go, especially since it’s only his third day in America. Trisha Wright happened to find him a [...]

    8. I really like short stories and I have a soft spot for physically imperfect characters. So this book seemed pretty perfect.I really have to remember, however, how much "Scottish" romances bother me. As half of my family is Scottish and I go back to Scotland often to visit my family at least once a year, these like sort of stereotypical depictions of the Scottish and the way they behave really bother me. Not that I didn't like the story; it was cute and short and heart warming. But Alasdair was j [...]

    9. Alasdair Buchanan has left his home to live in America for six months. Blind from an accident he relies on his guide dog and his not so reliable cousin. Left at a highlander faire and worried about how to get home he befriends a local girl named Trisha.Trisha respects Alasdair and finds a bit more in common with him after an incident of her own. Knowing others look at her as something hideous she relishes the time with Alasdair without any judgement. However as they begin to get closer she knows [...]

    10. An enjoyable read.A blind man and a scarred woman find happiness together in this charming short story. E.A. West brings together two people whose love for each other enables them to see beyond defects and embrace life. A little bit of humor at Highland Games in Indiana (haggis, 'nuf said), a faithful service dog and a cousin who speaks first/thinks later add depth to this heart-warming story.

    11. This book caused me to want to visit Scotland and go to a highland game. I really liked Alasdair and I could understand the different emotions Trisha went threw. It was a cute story that was finished to soon. I wish that there was more details about Alasdair and Trisha's relationship it was kind of to fast.

    12. Short story. I loved Alasdair, loved his accent loved the writing too. A sweet story about a Scottish lad who's blind and finds love. :) I just discovered my new Scottish book boyfriend lol! :)

    13. I would have given this four stars, but it was just a shade on the short side and wrapped up a little too quickly for my taste. I was just starting to know both of the characters, but would have liked to know more before the end suddenly arrived. Great premise though!

    14. This was not for me. There were instant feelings that I really didn't feel. I could've skipped it and not missed anything.

    15. Final feeling: sweet and forgettableSkin-deep novella, you pretty much have to dream up the depth of characters, but sweet none-the-less

    16. Very good.uld have more stories to add You want more about there relationshipWhen they went back to his country. More about their family and job other obstacles
