The finest Scottish chick-lit anthology ever! Stories from Jeny Colgan, Muriel Grey, Helen Lamb, Carol Anne Davis and many others. One of my favs is "FriendsRevisted.com" a story about a woman who after emailing a long-lost high school chum, finds herself revealing all the dirty details of her failed marriage. The friend's reply bolsters the woman to start living her new life as a successful woman, rather than a woman who 'failed' at marriage.

" Meet the Clanswomen... International bestselling authors Jenny Colgan, Isla Dewar, and Muriel Gray lead off this dazzling collection of stories by popular and rising Scottish women authors. A sometimes wild, sometimes poignant romp through the lives of Scotswomen, Scottish Girls About Town revels in the universal hilarity and strife of being a girl! They're looking for something moor. In Jenny Colgan's ""The Fringes,"" a hapless heroine heads to the Edinburgh ""Fringe"" -- a massive theatrical and musical festival -- for a night of her own disastrous drama. Isla Dewar offers up ""In the Garden of Mrs. Pink,"" one woman's look back at her girlhood and the life lessons she learned from an eccentric neighbor. In Muriel Gray's ""School-Gate Mums,"" a single mother with killer instincts settles the score with one of the mothers at her son's school. Whether they're racing their flatmates in a weight-loss contest, reconnecting with long-lost friends, or grappling with the men in their lives, these daughters of Scotland prove that no one can top their audacious spirit and Highland charm."

All the shgort stories were well-written. I am one for the guaranteed happy ending, and some of them were ambiguous and left you wondering, so that's why only three stars...
