WHAT IS THE BOOK ABOUT?

Hospitality consultant Andrea Sullivan has one last chance to snag a high-profile client or she’ll have to kiss her dreams of promotion good-bye. When she’s sent to meet Scottish celebrity chef James MacDonald on the Isle of Skye, she just wants to finish her work as efficiently as possible. Yet her client is not the opportunistic womanizer he portrays himself to be, and her attraction to him soon dredges up memories she’d rather leave buried. For James, renovating the family hotel is a fulfillment of his late father’s dreams. When his hired consultant turns out to be beautiful, intelligent, and completely unimpressed by his public persona, he makes it his mission to win her over. He just never expects to fall under her spell.

Soon, both Andrea and James must face the reality that God may have a far different purpose for their lives—and that five days in Skye will forever change their outlook on life and love

MY REVIEW:

I am so happy to have discovered this author! It has been a long time since I loved a book so much that I simply forfeited a few hours sleep in order to read as much of it as I could before I couldn’t read anymore, because my eyes were protesting. Carla Laureano gets the story going right away and I was smiling on page one.

This beautiful story is set in the Scottish, Isle of Skye and I fell in love with the of it as I could before I couldn’t read anymore, because my eyes were protesting. Carla Laureano gets the story going right away and I was smiling on page one.

This beautiful story is set in the Scottish, Isle of Skye and I fell in love with the characters on page two….and the country had me in chapter seven. These complex characters who are both dealing with inner challenges, draw you in and have you rooting for them right up until the end.

James and Andrea’s story starts off with sparks flying early on, and their story will grab you and not let you go until you turn the last page….and then you will be sad it is over. That is how I felt. And I could not wait to read the second book in the series! (London Tides) It has been a long time since a book has captured me as much as this one did.

A thoroughly enjoyable read….carve out some time to read it, you will not regret it.
